Osram Sylvania is a leader in developing lighting technology for cars be it Halogen, HID/Xenon or light-emitting diodes (LED), which are used by 75% of the car manufacturing industry. Automotive lighting drives about 50% of Osram's business, though they supply 75% of NAFTA-produced vehicles and 40% of the light vehicle market in the world. LEDs are a more controllable light source that can be changed by the amount of power applied to it as LEDs are electronically-controlled semiconductors. Audi debuted a new A8 6.0 applying LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL), which will be mandated in Europe and Canada.
