The automotive semiconductor market was valued at USD 32.46 Billion in 2015 and is expected to reach USD 48.78 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 5.8% between 2016 and 2022. Growth of the market is directly linked with the growth of the automotive industry. The most significant factor driving the market is the increasing vehicle production which, in turn, is leading to rising demand for automotive semiconductors. Rising trend of vehicle electrification and growing demand for advanced safety, convenience, and comfort systems are the other factors driving the growth of the semiconductor content in the automobiles.

The three fastest-growing applications and the major consumers of the semiconductor content in a vehicle are telematics and infotainment, powertrain, and safety. The strict standards and regulations are the generating more demand for semiconductor components in the safety and powertrain applications. On the other hand, the growing competition among the vehicle manufacturers to provide better convenience and comfort to their customers is forcing the automobile manufacturers to use more and more semiconductor components for safety and telematics & infotainment applications.

Discrete power devices is the fastest-growing component, while memory devices is the second fastest-growing component of the automotive semiconductor market. The reason behind this sharp growth in the market share of the discrete power devices is due to the ongoing electrification of the major applications of the automobile, such as powertrain, which is generating more demand for power components such as MOSFET and IGBT. However, the requirement for better safety and advanced features in the automobile is giving rise to the necessity of more memory devices per vehicle to program the various control systems into an autonomous one.

The Asia-Oceania region accounted for the largest share of the total automotive semiconductor market in 2015. The region has emerged as a major automotive hub with majority of the market share in terms of vehicle production as well as sales. The primary reason behind this trend is the growing Chinese automotive market. This market has evolved into the largest producer of vehicles and consequently the largest consumer of automotive semiconductor across the globe. Depreciated oil prices, strict government regulations, rapid technological advancement, and consumption of mainly premium cars are the factors making North America as the fastest-growing region of the automotive semiconductor market, at an estimated CAGR of 6.5% between 2016 and 2022.

Automotive Semiconductor Market

Factors such as rising cost of vehicles, maintaining balance between cost and quality of the product, and continuous optimization of component size are continuously creating challenges for the automotive semiconductor market. Due to continuous decline of the oil prices, the demand for gasoline and diesel vehicles is expected to boost in the near future. However, the growth of the alternative powertrain vehicles can be hampered due to this trend. Conversely, if the impact of the slope of the two trends is considered, then nullification can be considered to some extent and this helps the automotive semiconductor industry to grow exponentially during the forecast period. However, the emergence of new vehicles such as autonomous cars and connected cars would act as the captivating imperative for the existing players as well as the new entrants.
