Global Automotive Defogger System Market 2016-2020

Global Automotive Defogger System Market 2016-2020

About Automotive Defogger Systems

A defogger can be categorized into the primary or secondary system. In a primary defogger system, the heat to clear the mist or ice formation is generated from the vehicle's engine coolant through the heater core. Fresh air passes through the heater core and is then distributed over the interior surface of the windshield with the help of a blower. This air dehumidifies the surrounding by passing through the vehicle's operating heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC), which assists is effective and fast defogging mechanism. The dried air has a higher capacity to absorb water content, making the mechanism more effective.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global automotive defogger system market to grow at a CAGR of 3.87% during the period 2016-2020.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Automotive Defogger Systems Market 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global automotive defogger systems market: Delphi, DENSO, DuPont, and NXP Semiconductors

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Hot wire anemometer, also known as thermal anemometer, is used to measure the fluid velocity by measuring the heat lost into the environment from the fluid. By measuring the change in wire temperature, the loss of heat can be calculated. The loss of heat can be converted to fluid velocity using the convective theory.”

According to the report, drivers in many countries face extreme fogging problems during monsoon and winter seasons. Fog formed on the windshield of vehicles affects the visibility while driving and may cause potential fatality hazards. The climate condition constantly changes along with the temperature that often makes the car windshield and windows foggy. Especially, when the outside weather is cold and the heater is turned on inside the car, there is fog formation on the inside of the car window and windshield. In addition, with the outside temperature and moisture content more than the car's inside temperature, moisture starts condensing at the exterior glass surface of the car, leading to unfavorable driving experience.

Further, the report states that defoggers primarily malfunction due to electrical circuitry and physical blockage factors. One of the most commonly observed downtime of a defogger is due to the air intake blockage, which is placed at the base of the windshield. The clogging leads partial fresh air entry into the cabin, which further limits defogger functionalities. At times, AC vents also get clogged, preventing the air to flow into the windshield.
