As Coronavirus rattles auto markets worldwide, US is no exception to that. Although, May sales inched close to a million units, they are still far away from ~1.4-1.5 million units seen per month earlier.

Many Car manufacturers introduced lucrative schemes in March-May 2020 to arrest the slump. For example, the Detroit 3 offered unprecedented 0%, 84 Month lease options which worked very well to uplift consumer buying sentiment. Hyundai went a notch higher and was among the first brands to introduce 0% financing for 84 months, deferred payments for 4 Months and a job-loss insurance to cover up to six payments.

Depressed fleet sales were a significant contributor to lower overall volume in May 2020, which is expected to recover gradually in the latter half of 2020.the retirement age buyers most vulnerable to the Corona virus are yet to return to the market.

We believe, the US auto sales will come back to 17 Million (Pre-Corona virus) level only by 2022-23.



US camera market will be driven by growing ADAS fitment on American cars and light trucks, a trend that started in early 2010s and has continued to grow even till now.

Japanese OEMs like Toyota and Honda have been at the forefront of ADAS especially camera based ADAS.

The US Automotive camera market is estimated at $XX Million in 2020, growing at –% CAGR till 2025.



There are more than 15 ADAS camera manufacturers supplying to various platforms in the US automotive camera market. Earlier, the suppliers were banking on the growth in Semi-autonomous technology for cars and more investments in fully autonomous prototypes but now as car manufactures hold on to cash and shelve expensive projects, that opportunity will not be accessible at least till 2024-25.

We expect reduction in average B-2-B prices for ADAS camera( both Mono and Stereo) as the market becomes more price sensitive and highly dependent on ADAS fitment in passenger cars.
