The global market for Wiper Systems is forecast to reach US$9.2 billion by 2024, driven by the expanding opportunity in the aftermarket in the wake of slowing growth in new car sales; and improving technical expertise behind the seemingly unremarkable windshield wiper. The ability to drive safely during inclement weather is the most basic prerequisite of driving, thus making wiper systems the most basic feature of every vehicle. Other major factors driving growth in the market include legislation of stringent vehicle safety regulations; increasing electronic content in automobiles, growing demand for smarter auto components and the resulting use of sensors in wiper system assembly; and rising passenger car and commercial vehicle density and resulting expansion of opportunities in the aftermarket; the ever-present threat of automobile accidents and the importance shed on wiper-and-washer systems as a key part of a vehicle’s vision system. Asia-Pacific represents the largest and the fastest growing market with a CAGR of 6.8% over the analysis period led by factors such as growing per capita vehicle ownership in developing Asian economies; growing base of affluent middle class population and greater appetite for innovative automotive technologies including intelligent rain sensing wiper systems; rise of China as a robust production hub for automobiles; increased outsourcing of wiper system manufacturing to Asian countries such as China, India, Thailand and Philippines; and growing preference for small cars and hatchbacks that are major end-users of rear window wiper systems. 

    Summary of Findings

  • Rising Passenger Car Density Expands the Addressable Market for Wiper Systems & Components in the Aftermarket
  • With Millions Continuing to Die in Preventable Road Accidents, the Focus on Automobile Safety Bodes Well for Sales of Wiper Systems
  • With the Future of all Automotive Innovations Driven by Electronics, Falling Sensor Prices Ranks as a Key Catalyst for the Proliferation of Automatic Rain Sensors Wipers in Cars
