Automotive Trailer Tow Mirror (ATTM) Market - Global Industry Insights, Trends, Outlook, and Opportunity Analysis, 2017–2025

Automotive trailer tows are considerably larger than usual vehicles plying on roads. Needless to say then, they require specialized systems to help with their movement and maneuverability, including automotive trailer tow mirrors that help increase the rear field of view of the automotive operator. According to our research, existence of large number of blind spots are the major causes responsible for towing related accidents. Eradication of blind spots through enhanced visibility and to ensure safety of the drivers and the attached trailers through these attached equipment will drive market growth.

Proliferating demand for towable RVs is expected to present significant growth opportunities through the forecast period

RVs are specifically designed for pleasure and recreational activities such as camping and tourism. These vehicles are incorporated with facilities such as toilets, bathrooms, kitchen, sleeping rooms and other customizable amenities that provide enhanced user comfort during the camping or travel. Moreover, favorable government policies, increasing popularity of RVs and positive business environment will also help provide significant momentum to the RVs demand. For instance, initiatives to regulate the RV quality standards by the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA) and tax deductions by the Internal Revenue Service in the U.S., have led to increased consumer inclination towards these automobiles. Increased demands for RVs due to these factors, will provide significant growth prospects to the automotive trailer tow mirror market.
