Automotive ECU Market

To know about the assumptions considered for the study, download the pdf brochure

The ecosystem of the ECU market for automotive consists of automotive ECU manufacturers such as Continental (Germany), Bosch (Germany), Aptiv (UK), Denso (Japan), Autoliv (Sweden), Mitsubishi Electric (Japan), ZF (Germany), Hitachi (Japan), and Magneti Marelli (Italy). The automotive ECUs are supplied to the Tier 1 companies manufacturing electronic systems and automotive OEMs.

Major Market Developments

  • In January 2018, Continental introduced the new Safety Domain Control Unit (SDCU) as a backup to the Automated Driving System. It is an additional level of safety on the central control unit and the Assisted & Automated Driving Control Unit. With the implementation of the SDCU, the vehicle can still be brought to a safe stop if the main automation functionality fails.
  • In January 2018, Continental developed a highly flexible computing platform for automated driving, the Assisted & Automated Driving Control Unit. It is a central computer that enables automotive engineers to form their own differentiated solutions for machine learning and sensor fusion. It is an upgradation to the previously scalable platform—advanced driver assistance systems.
  • In August 2017, Bosch developed a new electric axle drive that combines 3 powertrain components—motor, power electronics, and transmission—in a single control unit.  This product can be installed in most hybrid and electric cars. The company has planned mass production of the electric axle drive by 2019.

      The automotive Electronic Control Unit (ECU) market was valued at USD 45.25 billion in 2016 and is projected to reach USD 96.39 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 6.01% during the forecast period. The demand for automotive ECUs is expected to increase as vehicles continue to be fitted with an increasing number of safety and convenience features that use electronic devices.

      Automobiles were mainly seen as mechanical machines not so long ago. However, the development of new technologies and innovations related to electronics and introduction of advanced electronics have converted automobiles into smart and connected machines. Automotive ECUs are used for controlling the diverse electronic parts and processes in a vehicle. These are used in most of the automotive electronic systems and have helped to enhance the driving experience. Conventionally, automotive cockpit electronics offered basic visual and analog interfaces such as control buttons, analog instrument clusters, and basic central displays. Modern automotive cockpit electronics consist of multiple integrated advanced technologies, which help make a vehicle smart and create a seamless driving experience.

      The Automotive ECU market is segmented by application type into ADAS & Safety System, Body Control and Comfort System, Infotainment & Communication System and Powertrain System. The ADAS and safety system segment of the automotive ECU market is estimated to be the largest market. It has an estimated market size of USD 23.78 billion in 2017 and is projected to reach USD 40.99 billion by 2025. The regulatory bodies of many countries are mandating the use of ADAS features such as blind spot detection, lane departure warning, automatic emergency braking, and park assist technology.

      The Asia Pacific automotive ECU market, in terms of value, is estimated to grow at the highest CAGR of 6.28% from 2017 to 2025. The increasing demand for advanced electronics in vehicles, growing purchasing power of the population, and rising awareness of safety features are the key factors driving the automotive ECU market in the Asia Pacific region.

      Automotive ECU Market

      Automotive ECUs mainly found their application in ADAS & Safety System, Body Control and Comfort System, Infotainment & Communication System and Powertrain System in a vehicle. The growth of these applications is driving the ECU market.

      ADAS and Safety System

      This segment includes the application of ECUs in ADAS features such as adaptive cruise control, blind spot detection, lane departure warning, automatic emergency braking, and park assist. It also includes basic safety systems such as anti-lock braking system (ABS), tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS), and electronic stability control. The regulatory bodies of several countries have mandated the use of basic safety features and ADAS functions in vehicles. Government mandates, along with the increasing awareness of vehicle safety, are expected to fuel the growth of the automotive ECU market.

      Body control & Comfort system

      Body control & comfort system includes the application of ECUs in motor control modules, body control systems, HVAC control systems, automotive lighting, gateway systems, interior comfort systems and power distribution systems. Additionally, all applications for passenger and driver comfort and convenience have been considered in this segment. The automotive ECU market, by value, for body control & comfort system is estimated to be USD 16,146.4 million in 2017 and is projected to reach USD 24,801.2 million by 2025.

      Infotainment & communication System

      The infotainment & communication system application includes the components of electronic systems such as vehicle telematics, HUDs, in-car entertainment systems, navigation systems, rear seat infotainment systems, instrument clusters, vehicle interfaces, integrated systems, HMI, and camera interfaces. The rise in demand propelled by the consumer preference for interactive infotainment and communication systems are making this segment a lucrative one for the Automotive ECU manufacturers in the coming future.

      Powertrain system

      The powertrain system segment includes the engine and transmission systems. With the advancement of technology, powertrain systems have evolved from fully mechanical components to electronically operated components. For instance, traditional engine components such as valves can now be actuated with the help of electronic circuits, which help to reduce power transmission loss and friction. Furthermore, the increasing demand for BEVs and PHEVs, which have more electronic devices in their powertrains, is fueling the growth of the automotive ECU market.

      Critical questions the report answers:

      • How these developments in the Automotive ECU will hamper the market in the coming future?
      • Will there be a saturation related to automotive ECUs or an upcoming technology might hamper the market in the near future?

      Many consumers prefer to bring their own device (BYOD) such as a smartphone or tablet in the vehicle. They prefer to use their own devices instead of those embedded in the vehicle. In-vehicle entertainment and infotainment features such as navigation, music, and telematics have captured the fancy of many consumers. However, they are in favor of using their own gadgets instead of the ones that are embedded in the vehicle. The use of these devices can discourage OEMs from adding new technologies and features in the car. Moreover, as the Asian countries are price-sensitive markets, the introduction of new and advanced features that are expensive is likely to fail in the market.

      Key players in the market include Continental (Germany), Robert Bosch (Germany), Denso Corp (Japan), Autoliv (Sweden), and Mitsubishi Electric (Japan). These players have adopted various growth strategies such as expansion and new product development to increase their presence and market share in the global market.
