The Automotive inside rearview mirrors was negatively affected by the pandemic, as majority of OEM and auto component suppliers had to close down their production sites with ongoing government lockdown measures. This held the market with low demand from OEMs for IRVM and reduces production volumes from manufacturers. After 2021, market started witnessing a steady demand for the IRVM with rising auto sales across the globe coupled with an improved supply chain network worldwide.

Moreover, over the medium term, growing production of vehicles with integrated ADAS features in wake of rising awareness toward comfort and safety of passengers and government regulations mandating safety features expected to drive demand in the market. For instance, According to Insurance Institute for Highway Safety says 15,000 people are injured annually in back over accidents, with children and elders having been the most victims.

Asia-Pacific Region Anticipated to Grow at Significant Level During the Forecast Period

The Asia-Pacific region accounts for the largest share in the market owing to the availability of low-cost raw materials, cheap labour, and increasing government initiatives toward local manufacturing. In the region, China is one of the largest producers and consumers of electric vehicles as well as increasing demand for passenger car sales in the countries like India, Japan, South Korea, etc., are likely to boost the demand for inside rear-view mirrors in the automotive industry.

China, which is the largest electric vehicle market in the world, has been backed up by generous support from the government. China has extended the incentives related to the purchase of new energy vehicles (NEVs) till 2022. Asia-Pacific region is aggressively supporting the electrical vehicle adoption. For instance,
  • In January 2020, Tesla Motors inaugurated a USD 2 billion facility in Shanghai that was assembling nearly 3000 cars per week in March 2020, when all the other global facilities of the electric vehicle giant were shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
