Global Automotive Electronics Forecast and Trend

Growth Drivers 

Increasing Safety Concerns

Road traffic, serious injuries, and death are a few adverse consequences of road transportation. One of the main causes of road crashes and accidents is usually human error. Numerous aspects associated with human drivers, such as speeding, failure to pay attention, and maintaining the proper distance from the vehicle in front, are majorly responsible for road accidents. This necessitates the introduction of sophisticated safety devices into the automotive sector. Thus, the growing preference for safer driving alternatives and smoother road traffic is the key driver for the growth of the global automotive electronics market.

Increasing Adoption of Electric and Hybrid Vehicles

The increasing demand for electric and hybrid vehicles due to their capacities, such as long battery life, energy-efficiency, integrated electronic devices, and zero direct carbon emissions would are driving the market growth. Considering the industry’s huge growth prospects, the market players are making huge investments in the development of high-end hybrid cars.  Moreover, governments of different countries of the world are enacting policies to curb carbon emissions, which in turn is contributing to the increased adoption of electric and hybrid vehicles. Also, surging consumer preference toward advanced parking assistance, a head-up display, and powerful infotainment system technologies are bolstering the growth of the market.

Restraints

High Cost of Electronic Systems to Diminish Business Potential

The high cost of lithium-ion batteries, as well as the significant investments made in R&D for building more sophisticated electronics solutions such as advanced driver assistance systems, are restraining the market growth. Also, high-end software used in hybrid and electronic vehicles which leads to high-end production costs of the automotive vehicles is yet another key factor hindering the automotive electronic market growth. Furthermore, the automobile electronics industry is being impacted by the uncertainties of high servicing and replacement costs.

Impact of COVID-19 in the industry

In terms of market and operational parameters, the pandemic has had a serious impact on industry players. As soon as the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) as a pandemic, countries across the globe were compelled to enforce nationwide lockdown to prevent the spread of the virus. This has severely impacted manufacturing besides disrupting the supply chains. Production and operation have slowed down owing to the spreading of coronavirus. Furthermore, COVID-19 has hindered the demand for the automotive and electronics market. For instance, the widespread dissemination of COVID-19 has compelled around 96% of the German automotive industry to place their workforce on short-term jobs during the nationwide lockdown.

Global Automotive Electronics Market: By Vehicle Type

Based on vehicle type, the global automotive electronics market is segmented into passenger cars and commercial vehicles. The passenger car segment accounted for the largest share in 2020 and is estimated to continue to lead throughout the forecast period as well. Growing production and increasing volume sales of passenger vehicles across the globe is generating high demand for automotive electronics systems and components, such as powertrain solutions, infotainment system, and safety systems. Also, OEMs in the global automobile sector are developing vehicles that provide enhanced comfort & safety solutions to address the rapidly changing consumer demands. These factors are playing a key role in driving the overall market growth.

Global Automotive Electronics Market: By Application

Based on application, the automotive electronics market is categorized into ADAS (Adaptive Cruise Control), blind-spot detection, parking assistance, automated emergency braking, infotainment & communication, safety system, and others. The ADAS segment is estimated to expand at the highest CAGR over the forecast period, owing to the several steps taken by the governments across the world to enhance the safety and security of drivers as well as vehicles. For instance, the New Car Assessment Programme (NCAP) in Europe and China has mandated the use of Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) and Lane Departure Warning (LDW) systems owing to which automotive manufactures are adopting these technologies, thereby driving the growth of ADAS the application segment.

Global Automotive Electronics Market: By Sales Channel

Based on the sales channel, the global automotive electronics market is fragmented into OEMs and aftermarkets. The OEM segment held the largest market share in 2020 as most of the electronic components are integrated during the vehicle manufacturing stage by manufacturers such as BMW Motors, General Motors, and Volkswagen AG, thus, calibrating customer’s trust in the electronic components through familiarity and performance. Since the electronic components offered by the OEMs are highly durable, and the OEM parts work exactly as the replaced parts, this segment is estimated to expand at a significant CAGR over the forecast period.
