Automotive lighting technology has come a long way in the last 20 years as new technologies start to gain importance. High-intensity discharge (HID) headlamps – also known as xenon headlamps – were invented in early 1990s, challenging the dominance of halogen headlamps for the first time. Since then, automotive lighting has developed to solid-state technology in the form of light emitting diodes (LEDs), organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs), and laser technology. Much of this progress can be attributed to the pace of scientific innovation in materials technology.

For instance, the price of LEDs has decreased rapidly over the past three to five years, and this trend is expected to continue over the next couple of years until LED lights reach a true mass-adoption cost. Essential research on better materials is crucial to reach this price goal. However, beyond that, advances in materials will also broaden LED consumption through improved performance in brightness, lifetime (concerning brightness and colour maintenance), and colour homogeneity or colour rendering.
