Hyundai Mobis announced on 24 February 2022 that it has logged over KRW 1 trillion (US$830 million) worth of orders from global automakers just in the automotive lighting sector, which has been driven by diversifying the customer base in the global market, including customers such as a European automaker and new EV makers.
Last year, the global no. 7 global automotive supplier won global deals worth US$2.5 billion with an extensive product portfolio ranging from core parts to electronic units. About one-third of the exports consisted of lamps and high value-added products, such as matrix beam headlights and high-performance rear lamps.
The company is enhancing its brand power by being the first to develop Advanced Adaptive Driving Beam (AADB), which works in sync with Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), and HLED, which integrates the tail and the stop light in a single LED with only 5.5mm thickness, thus taking the lead with next-generation lighting technology.
Hyundai Mobis is said to be strengthening its competitiveness in the global automotive lighting market with its development of next-generation lamp technology, such as lamps that work with ADAS, a slimmer and differentiated design, together with controller integration. The company said it would continue to develop high-end products that reflect the elements that are specialised in future mobility.
Leading examples are the development of the HD head lamp system that shows road information and a digital lamp system. These systems are centered around realising a lamp technology that enables the driver to communicate through lamps and are expected to preempt future trends towards autonomous driving.
In addition, Hyundai Mobis will deliver differentiated lamp technologies, such as grille lighting dedicated to EVs and comprehensive control of various lamp signals.
Axel Maschka, executive vice president and head of global OE sales at Hyundai Mobis said, “We plan to further bolster our competitiveness through our global technological capabilities and reliable quality in our wide-ranging product portfolio including lamps. Our goal for this year is to win US$37 billion in orders from global automakers in total.”
