2021-2022 Global and Chinese Electronic Rearview Mirror Report: Yuanfeng Technology is the Largest Supplier in the Young Market – ResearchAndMarkets.com


DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “2021-2022 Global and Chinese Electronic Rear View Mirror Industry Report” report has been added to from ResearchAndMarkets.com offer.

In 2021, there were 346,700 insured passenger cars fitted with standard OEM mirrors in China, up 73.04% from the previous year.

The market for electronic mirrors is booming, but still in its infancy.

In April 2016, the 2016 Cadillac XT5 equipped with a stepless rearview mirror was launched in the market. It was the first time that an OEM streaming mirror appeared in the Chinese passenger car market. And then car brands like WEY, Buick and FAW (Hongqi, Bestune) also unveiled models with streaming mirrors. As of May 2022, a total of 13 auto brands in China released models equipped with stepless mirrors and achieved some sales.

Given the current size, few streaming mirror vendors participate in the OEM market, creating a relatively simple complete landscape. Our data shows that Yuanfeng Technology is now the largest streaming mirror supplier in the Chinese passenger car market, with an overwhelming market share of 72%.

Regarding the implementation of the solution, the consumer solutions change the vision device of category I from a conventional optical rearview mirror to a screen, in order to adapt as much as possible to the driver’s habit of seeing the back view. Some OEMs also make a compromise, a solution of separating the Category I vision device from the image, i.e. still using the conventional optical mirror to present the image collected by the streaming camera on the cluster display or the center console display. Examples include Changan UNI-K and ZEEKR 001.

3. Electronic exterior mirrors: Most automakers take a wait-and-see attitude.

Unlike stepless mirrors, exterior mirrors which play an extremely important role in daily driving safety are walking a bumpy road towards electronicization. Since the United Nations issued the UN-R6 regulation in June 2016, Europe, Japan, South Korea and India, among other regions/countries, have started selling models equipped with electronic door mirrors.

Commercial vehicles:

Mercedes-Benz Trucks has introduced MirrorCam for the first time, a mass-produced electronic exterior mirror solution that was first applied to the flagship Actros truck. Mercedes-Benz adopts a conservative mirror replacement strategy where only the main mirror (Category II) and the wide FOV mirror (Category IV) are electronic, and the front mirror and the proximity exterior mirror are retained. The Mercedes-Benz MirrorCam system consists of two cameras and two 15.2-inch screens. Above the MirrorCam screen are three manually adjustable virtual distance lines (move left, reverse and overtake) to help the driver estimate the distance to the vehicle behind. At the same time, the MirrorCam screen also integrates warning information from Mercedes-Benz Sideguard Assist.

Passenger cars:

Lexus, a luxury brand, was the first to mass-produce the electronic side-view mirror for passenger cars (DIGITAL SIDE-VIEW MONITORS) and applied it to the ES300h.

Lexus DIGITAL SIDE VIEW MONITORS provide real-time changing of viewing angles in different driving conditions. For example, when the turn signal is on or reverse gear is engaged, the viewing angle automatically widens from an ordinary angle to a wide angle.

4. The challenges exist, but the trend is unstoppable.

Electronic mirrors are still far superior to conventional optical mirrors, but face huge challenges such as high cost, low reliability, and changing the driver’s view. In the long term, electronic mirrors will be an integral part of vehicle intelligence, but will not become a megatrend in the short term.

Trend 1: the combination of CMS and ADAS/autonomous driving

The electronic rear-view camera is installed near the conventional exterior mirror or at the rear of the vehicle, two positions where the ADS camera is often located. Some functions of CMS overlap with Blind Spot Monitoring/Blind Spot Detection/ADS Camera, both of which aim to acquire or detect road traffic conditions on the rear side of the vehicle and provide driving decisions to the driver /vehicle. Both should be integrated considering the cost of the product, the realization of the function and the air resistance.

Trend 2: Fusion of SMD interior/exterior mirror images

The way of displaying the side/rear view of the vehicle currently follows conventional driving habits. CMS screens are placed on the left, top middle and right forward of the cockpit, with physical display divisions. Technologically, on the basis of maintaining the traditional optical rearview mirror, the images of the rear left, rear and rear right captured by the electronic exterior rearview mirror and the electronic interior rearview mirror can be synthesized with algorithms, merged and displayed on a single screen.

Trend 3: Combination of CMS and Cockpit Domain Controller

As chip computing power improves and E/E architecture evolves, cockpits integrate display solutions such as LCD cluster, HUD, center console display, screen co-pilot entertainment and the rear entertainment screen in intelligent cockpit domain controllers, with the aim of enabling unified management. in the same chip. The emergence of electronic rearview mirrors produces more data streams that require processing for the vehicle, and separate ECUs will further increase the cost of the entire vehicle. Cost reduction will be the primary driver for the adoption of cockpit domain controllers.
