The global automotive LED taillight market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 18.72% during the forecast period, reaching a total market size of US$512.168 million in 2024 from US$182.918 million in 2018. This growth is attributed to the improving automotive taillight technologies and shift of preference over to LED bulbs which are brighter and efficient and also last longer
Automotive LED taillights, which are also known as tail lamps, are a type of automotive lighting system that are positioned at the rear right and rear left of the vehicle. These lights help in indicating the driver’s actions to other vehicles as well as helping other vehicles see the vehicle in front of them, also they illuminate the nearby surroundings of the vehicle making the night time driving easier.
