Market Intelligence Study for an Automotive Components Manufacturer

April 10, 2017

Increasing electrification in vehicles and hybrid and electric vehicles, in particular, is anticipated to spur the demand for power semiconductors in vehicles.

Over the years, automobiles have evolved considerably from being a modest means of transport to a portable hub for modern electronics. As the electronic content in vehicles is increasing by the day, there is a subsequent rise in the demand for automotive electronic components and semiconductors. Electronic components now constitute nearly 40% of the total costs of a conventional, internal combustion engine car, and this cost can jump as high as 75% for electric and hybrid-electric vehicles. As staying well-connected via smartphones and tablets is the modern way of life, most car drivers are dependent on Bluetooth, cellular technologies, and other telematics functions. Such technological features require power semiconductors to distribute and control power through vehicles.

Globally, the number of automotive electronics is only going to increase as OEMs continue to introduce cutting-edge safety features, latest information and entertainment services, and improvements in energy efficiency for their devices. Additionally, it has been noted that there is a surging demand for the inclusion of safety features in automobiles, such as lane change assistance, automatic parking, and collision avoidance. Also, the gradual shift towards fully autonomous vehicles is likely to increase the demand for safety features over the next few years.

Over the last few years, the automotive industry has undergone a major transformation and is slowly moving towards self-driving, connected and green cars, which is critical for achieving safety standards like platooning and automatic emergency braking. In the automotive electronics market, a vehicle is categorized into five domains – automobile body and convenience features, chassis and safety features, infotainment, powertrain, and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). The increased pressure on auto manufacturers to enhance fuel consumption and to comply with the emission norms is expected to spur the use of semiconductors in powertrain applications.

The Business Challenge
