Automotive Camera Cleaning System Market Dynamics
Rising safety concerns and fatality rate over the last few years is likely to fuel the demand for higher integration of automotive camera cleaning systems in vehicles in order to lower the risk of road accidents, which, in turn, is likely to drive the automotive camera cleaning system during the forecast period.
Regulations for backup camera implemented in the U.S. are only for light vehicles, and the same regulations are anticipated to be adopted in Europe by 2021, as already proposed by the EU Commission. This, in turn, is anticipated to boost the market for backup cameras and consequently, the market for camera cleaning systems.
Based on vehicle type, passenger vehicle was a highly attractive segment, and is anticipated to hold a leading share of the automotive camera cleaning system market, owing to the presence of camera cleaning system in a large number of passenger vehicles, while the system is present in a few light commercial vehicles in specific regions.
In terms of application, the parking camera segment accounted for a major share of the market. Mirror camera and CMS camera are anticipated to be high prominent segments of the market owing to the rising integration of side cameras for various ADAS features such as 360-degree view, and blind spot detection system.

Availability of camera cleaning system as a customized addition is driving the aftermarket segment of the market.
In terms of region, the global automotive camera cleaning system market has been segregated into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and Latin America. Europe held a notable share of the global automotive camera cleaning system market, owing to higher production of premium vehicles in the region incorporated with automotive camera cleaning systems.
Furthermore, the adoption and production of technology in Europe is comparatively more, as compared to that in other regions. Several decisions by governments of countries in Europe have hampered businesses in the region. Rise in revised taxes due to Brexit is likely to hamper production and sales of automobiles in Europe, which in turn is estimated to restrain the overall automotive industry. This is likely to hinder the automotive camera cleaning system market in the region.
