Global Automotive Inside Rearview Mirrors Market 2023
The global automotive inside rearview mirrors (IRVM) market is projected to reach approximately $3.68 billion by 2029, representing a compound annual growth rate of 4.5% between 2023 and 2029. The IRVM serves as a critical vehicle component, providing clear rear visibility to enhance safety. The market experienced challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic characterized by reduced production and demand. However, recovery began in 2021 fueled by strengthening global automotive sales and improved supply chain capacities.
Ongoing increases in the manufacture of vehicles integrating advanced driver assistance systems and tighter government safety regulations will further propel market expansion. Technologies like cameras and sensors advance safety and fuel efficiency within automobiles. Currently, the Asia Pacific region is anticipated to dominate the market globally. Countries leading in vehicle manufacturing like India, Japan, and China will spearhead regional growth. Europe will constitute the second largest market, with major automakers such as Porsche, Audi, Volkswagen and BMW headquartered within the region.

The passenger car segment of the automotive market is projected to grow rapidly during the forecast period. This growth is driven by increasing vehicle production and the introduction of innovative products by major OEMs to cater to a wide range of consumers. With the rising demand for passenger cars and the focus on electric mobility, automotive players are actively exploring electrification options. The sales of passenger cars have led to a significant demand for IRVMs. Advanced IRVMs are now standard in mid-segment and luxury passenger cars, establishing technological dominance. However, the market faces competition from new camera technologies integrated into the passenger car segment. Automotive OEMs and mirror manufacturers are incorporating cameras with conventional mirrors to improve rear visibility. This integration is considered the best solution to address visibility challenges. With these developments and increasing passenger car sales, the demand for IRVMs is expected to grow significantly.
The Asia-Pacific region dominates the automotive Inside Rearview Mirror market due to factors such as cost-effective raw materials, affordable labor, and government initiatives to promote local manufacturing. China is a prominent producer and consumer of electric vehicles in the region, while India, Japan, and South Korea are experiencing a rise in passenger car sales, leading to increased demand for inside rear-view mirrors. China’s electric vehicle market has received significant government support, including incentives for purchasing new energy vehicles (NEVs) extended until 2022. The Asia-Pacific region actively supports the adoption of electric vehicles, with developing and untapped markets investing in transportation and safety measures, resulting in higher vehicle sales and demand for additional safety features. As the Asia-Pacific region leads global vehicle sales, it becomes a central hub for Inside Rearview Mirror adoption. Considering these factors, the demand for Inside Rearview Mirrors is expected to grow significantly in the forecast period.
The automotive market is moderately fragmented, with various local and global players such as Continental AG, Ficosa International S.A., FLABEG Automotive Holding GmbH, Gentex Corporation, Magna International Inc., MITSUBA Corporation, Murakami Corporation, SL Corporation, SMR Deutschland GmbH, and TOKAI RIKA CO. LTD. While the market is evolving, the adoption of new technologies is primarily focused on luxury vehicles and specific markets. Consequently, traditional mirrors are not expected to be completely replaced in the near future due to existing regulations favoring their usage. However, companies are increasingly investing in Research and Development (R&D) projects to enhance the car owner’s experience by incorporating more convenient and safer features, without eliminating traditional mirrors. With the growing prominence of technology and continuous improvement of Inside Rearview Mirrors (IRVM), the market has experienced significant growth.
