Global Automotive Auto Dimming Mirror Market 2017-2021
About Automotive Auto Dimming Mirrors
Dimming mirrors were initially introduced in fighter aircraft to reduce brightness and glare. In the automotive industry, Gentex was credited for the introduction of the first electromechanical dimming rear-view mirror in 1982. The first electrochromic mirror was introduced in 1987 and soon gained popularity in the 1990s. Auto dimming mirrors reduce glare at night that can impair vision and are now a popular option in both high-end and economy cars. The glare from the headlights of trailing vehicles can pose a serious threat to safety, especially on dark, poorly lit roads. Auto dimming rear-view mirrors incorporate a sensor that can detect low ambient light from the headlights of trailing vehicles. The mirrors then automatically adjust to the glare.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global automotive auto dimming mirrors market to grow at a CAGR of 5.3% during the period 2017-2021.
