Global & China Electronic Rearview Mirror Report 2021-2022: Yuanfeng Technology the Largest Vendor in the Young Market –


DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–That “Global & China Electronic Rearview Mirror Industry Report, 2021-2022” Report has been added Offer.

In 2021, there were 346,700 insured passenger cars equipped with standard OEM streaming rear-view mirrors in China, up 73.04% year-on-year.

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

In April 2016, the 2016 Cadillac XT5 was launched with a streaming rearview mirror. It was the first time that an OEM streaming rearview mirror appeared in the Chinese passenger car market. And then car brands like WEY, Buick and FAW (Hongqi, Bestune) also introduced models with streaming rearview mirrors. As of May 2022, a total of 13 car brands in China have marketed models with streaming rear-view mirrors and achieved certain sales.

Given the current size, there are few streaming rearview mirror vendors participating in the OEM market, making for a relatively simple overall landscape. Our data shows that Yuanfeng Technology is the largest streaming rearview mirror supplier in China’s passenger car market today, with a staggering 72% market share.

In terms of solution implementation, mainstream solutions are changing Category I vision devices from a traditional optical mirror to a display to maximally adapt to the driver’s habit of seeing the rear view. Some OEMs also come to a compromise, a solution that separates the Category I viewing device from the image, ie continues to use the traditional optical mirror to display the image captured by the streaming camera on the combo screen or the screen of the show the center console. Examples are Changan UNI-K and ZEEKR 001.

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

In contrast to streaming rearview mirrors, exterior rearview mirrors, which play an enormously important role in everyday driving safety, are taking a bumpy road towards electronization. Since the United Nations enacted the UN R6 regulation in June 2016, Europe, Japan, South Korea and India, among others, have all started selling models with electronic exterior mirrors.

Commercial vehicles:

Mercedes-Benz Trucks introduced the MirrorCam, a series-produced electronic exterior mirror solution that was first used on the Actros heavy-duty flagship. Mercedes-Benz employs a conservative replacement strategy for rear-view mirrors, in which only the main rear-view mirror (category II) and the wide-field rear-view mirror (category IV) are electronic, and the front-view mirror and the close-range wing mirror are retained. The Mercedes-Benz MirrorCam system consists of two cameras and two 15.2-inch displays. Above the MirrorCam display are three manually adjustable virtual distance lines (left-hand traffic, reversing and overtaking), which help the driver to estimate the distance to the vehicle behind. At the same time, the MirrorCam display also integrates the warnings from the Mercedes-Benz Sideguard Assist.

passenger cars:

Lexus, a luxury brand, was the first to mass-produce electronic passenger car exterior mirrors (DIGITAL SIDE-VIEW MONITORS) and applied them to the ES300h.

Lexus DIGITAL SIDE VIEW MONITORS enable real-time switching of viewing angles under various driving conditions. For example, when the turn signal is on or reverse gear is engaged, the viewing angle is automatically increased from a normal angle to a wide angle.

4. There are challenges, but the trend is unstoppable.

Electronic rearview mirrors remain vastly superior to conventional optical mirrors, but face enormous challenges such as high cost, poor reliability, and changing driver vision. Electronic rearview mirrors will function as an integral part of vehicle intelligence in the long term, but will not become a megatrend in the short term.

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

The electronic rearview camera is installed near the traditional exterior rearview mirror or at the rear of the vehicle, two locations where the ADS camera is often located. Some functionality of the CMS overlaps with the Blind Spot Monitor/Blind Spot Detection/ADS camera, both of which aim to sense or detect road traffic conditions to the side behind the vehicle and provide driver/vehicle driving decisions. The two are expected to be integrated considering product cost, functional realization and drag.

Trend 2: the merging of CMS interior and exterior mirror images

The way to display the side/rear view of the vehicle currently follows the traditional driving habits. The CMS screens are placed on the left, top center and right front of the cockpit, with physical display splits. Technically based on keeping the traditional optical mirror, the left rear, rear and right rear images captured by the electronic outside mirror and electronic inside mirror can be synthesized with algorithms, fused and displayed on one screen.

Trend 3: the 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 screen, copilot entertainment screen and rear entertainment screen into intelligent cockpit domain controllers for unified management in the same Chip. The advent of electronic rearview mirrors creates more data streams to process for the vehicle, and separate ECUs will further increase the cost of the entire vehicle. Lower costs will be the main driving force behind the adoption of cockpit domain controllers.
