Automotive Wiring Harness Market Dynamics

Drivers

Surge in demand for light weight harness

Specialty cables are in high demand due to their lighter weight, lower cost, and smaller bundle diameter. There will be plenty of demand for cameras, displays, and other infotainment applications, resulting in the development of new techniques to combine video and camera signals into a single specialty cable, decreasing the weight and expense of wiring harnesses even further. For lightweight and high-speed harnesses, original equipment manufacturers chose aluminum and optical fiber. Thus, this factor is driving the growth of global automotive wiring harness market.

Restraints

Unstable prices of materials

Copper prices have been volatile, affecting demand for optical fiber cables in the global market. Original equipment manufacturers emphasize the use of optical fibers that are more durable than copper/aluminum and can endure hard environments and weather. The relatively higher expense of optical fiber cables, on the other hand, is likely to limit its adoption in the global market.

Opportunities

Growing advanced features of vehicles

The desire for driver aid technologies to integrate advanced features in automobiles has been spurred by a growing awareness of safety and security. Vehicle makers must also adhere to safety regulations and include features such as airbags. Ambient lighting, chilled cupholder, voice recognition, heated steering wheels, heated seats, digital display, better infotainment capabilities, and extra power steering functions have all gained popularity among consumers as ways to improve the driving experience.

Challenges

Short life of wiring harness

Due to rapidly changing surroundings such as extreme hot to extreme cold temperatures and fast temperature swings, the wiring harness can bend. These issues might cause the wiring harness to deteriorate and shorten its lifespan. As a result, this is a major challenge for the market growth.
