With the increased complexity of vehicle electronics, there is a greater demand for more cost-effective, user friendly, and lucrative solutions to reinforce a wide range of features. Electronic clusters can be reconfigured by letting consumers customize the display contents and allowing better interactivity.

Cluster manufacturers are directing rigorous efforts to develop newer systems to combine infotainment with these panels and enabling the display of electronic information in a single panel by using a system on a chip platform. These chips are known for delivering high-quality displays in 3D and 2D graphics for mid-size cars. Smart vehicles are moving automakers towards information-rich graphical displays, driving automotive digital instrument cluster industry forecast.

12 inch display segment is anticipated to witness over 24% CAGR between 2019-2025. OLED is estimated to gain a high demand among new vehicle display panels as it is extensively used to produce flexible, slim and light displays. Manufacturers are widely utilizing these displays for several vehicle applications such as navigation, internal & external lightening, head-up display, and instrument cluster.

Due to advanced features, car manufacturers are widely adopting OLED as an advanced automotive lighting component which will further stimulate automotive digital instrument cluster market trends. In 2018, LG Display had collaborated with Cadillac, Mercedes, and Tesla for the development of FHD 12.3” curved plastic-based flexible OLEDs. OLED provides new possibilities in lamp and luminaire designs and as panel radiators, they are apt for use as taillight, signal light, or even interior lighting.

As the competitive pressure mounts in the automotive sector, there has been a reduction in electronics and digital system manufacturing costs for passenger vehicles, while bringing new advancements in instrument clusters. Moreover, instrument clusters are evolving rapidly with the addition of color displays and high-display solutions which provide an opportunity to develop greater display panels.

Many companies and business incubators are looking forward to commencing the installation of several algorithms in the e-cockpit like fisheye detection, around-view mirror (360-degree AVM) rearview monitoring, and Driver Monitoring System (DMS) creating the need for big instrument clusters. In May 2019, Visteon Corporation had announced the introduction of a SmartCore cockpit domain controller in India.

This system formed a key part of the digital & hybrid instrument cluster and infotainment system in TATA Harrier SUVs. Similar moves by manufacturers and companies to adopt the automotive digital instrument cluster could highlight the trend in automotive sector. It is estimated that global automotive digital instrument cluster industry size may be pegged at USD 7 billion by 2025.

Asia Pacific automotive digital instrument cluster industry size is increasing rapidly due to the strong vehicle and component manufacturing sector in emerging economies like Japan, China, and South Korea. Most of the regional governments have been instigating a supportive regulatory framework to enhance the deployment of the digital instrument cluster in automobiles that will fuel the product demand in coming years.

Other Asian countries including South Korea, Japan, and India are also witnessing a robust expansion of the automobile sector due to the low manufacturing costs, consumption of passenger vehicles, and increased export activities in the region. The rising use of digital technology in vehicles for achieving sustainability and better performance will certainly bolster automotive digital instrument cluster market outlook.

A brief overview of how enhancements in OLED display technology are shaping up the automotive display market trends

Primarily, the usage of various display technologies in the automobiles is experiencing evolutionary changes as new functionalities and designs are being created and integrated within the car systems by major automakers. The need to have high-performance interactive displays – equipped with seamless response to touch and visual stimulus – has become a crucial characteristic for all the automakers operating at an international scale. Apparently, buttons are gradually disappearing in favor of multi-functional touchscreens. Notably, the incorporation of OLED display technology has helped automakers to develop virtual dashboards with curved screens.

Elaborating further on the evolution of OLED display technology and its current form, it would be prudent to mention the fact that OLED displays are now termed as the most preferred display panels among prominent automotive firms such as Mercedes-Benz, Volkswagen, Toyota, Audi, and General Motors. Following are a few instances which underscore the growing prominence of the OLED displays in the auto industry and the way it is affecting the overall automotive display technology landscape:

  • Audi, in 2018, introduced its new passenger car model the E-Tron Quattro that has its rear-view cameras connected with 7-inch OLED screens. This technology offers different views and angles which are displayed on the OLED screens in the car. Interestingly, it is being said that these new cameras would replace the conventional side mirrors in other Audi vehicles.

  • Although vehicles with OLED displays are being introduced at various exhibition events, it has only been recently that Mercedes Benz became the very first automotive major to incorporate OLEDs into its consumer models. Reportedly, Mercedes Benz would launch its new cars with OLED panels of LG Displays in dashboards and rear-seat screens from the year 2020.
  • China-based BOE Display recently rolled out a new flexible automotive OLED at SID 2019. The new OLED has a 12.3-inch display for the main instrument panel and deploys a new pixel compensation circuit technology which improves the brightness uniformity of the display.

The consistent improvement in OLED display technology is quite evident from the aforementioned product launches and offers a glimpse into the rapidly expanding automotive display market share. Additionally, better picture quality, visibility, and sharpness than the TFT LCD monitors have been the USPs of OLED display panels owing to which the automotive display market is rapidly expanding its consumer base across various business verticals.

Owing to the presence of numerous luxury automobile manufacturers along the likes of Jaguar Land Rover, BMW, Porsche, Audi, and Mercedes-Benz, the Europe automotive display industry has been a significant hub for developing and refining the existing automotive display technology. Most of these luxury automotive brands are offering large rear seat entertainment systems and integrated displays to enhance the driving experience.
