Automotive Electronics Market By Vehicle Class (Light Commercial Vehicles, Passenger Vehicles, Heavy Commercial Vehicles), By Component (Electronic Control Unit, Sensors, Current Carrying Devices), By Application (Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems, Infotainment, Body Electronics, Safety Systems, Powertrain), By Sales Channel (Original Equipment Manufacturer, Aftermarket) - Growth, Future Prospects & Competitive Analysis, 2019 – 2027

Vehicle Automation as well as Safety and Emission Regulations to Boost the Demand for Automotive Electronics.

The global automotive electronics market was valued at US$ 273.23 billion in 2018 and is expected to grow significantly, expanding at a CAGR of 6.98% from 2019 to 2027. Automotive electronics are specially-designed electronic systems employed in vehicles that include the ignition system, engine management system, entertainment systems in vehicles, car computers, and telematics, among others. Automotive electronics are capable of withstanding more extreme working temperatures as compared to commercial electronics.

The primary purpose of automotive electronics in vehicles is to improve the overall performance of the vehicle without affecting driver convenience. Automotive electronics system manufacturers are emphasizing the recent trends in the automotive industry, such as autonomous driving and electric and hybrid-electric vehicles. For instance, Hyundai Mobis in May 2019 announced the successful development of "Preview Air Suspension Technology," which predicts road and traffic conditions and, on the basis of such upcoming navigation information, automatically adjusts vehicle height and absorbs road shocks, providing a comfortable and safe ride.

Automotive electronic systems such as ignition, transmission, and engine electronics are important parts of motorcycles, trucks, buses, excavators, forklifts, and off-road vehicles. Engine Control Units (ECU) for modular transmission and engine control, sensor technology and signal processing algorithms, and advanced driver-assisting infotainment are among the technological advancements incorporated in the automotive electronic systems of vehicles to obtain better overall performance.

Packaging for automotive electronic systems is being developed to withstand high temperatures, particularly in the engine and transmission to sub-segments, as the packaging sector advances. Owing to such developments, the automotive electronics industry now aims to incorporate the engine control unit and transmission control unit on the engine and transmission systems, respectively.

Growing demand for automation in vehicles for improved performance is accelerating automotive electronics market growth. Apart from this, the national and international norms for emission control, consumer awareness, fuel efficiency, and other parameters have a significant impact on the growth of the automotive electronics market. Moreover, the advent of electric and hybrid electric vehicles is expected to significantly boost the automotive electronics market during the forecast period.
