Key Market Dynamics

  • An automotive semiconductor is used to manage electrical control unit operations, control fail-safe systems, and automotive fault-tolerant systems. In these systems, the semiconductor manages errors in the vehicle (such as broken lights, the anti-lock brake interface, and the accelerator). It communicates these errors to the microcontrollers and safety systems installed throughout the vehicle. For instance, fault tolerance would be emphasized if a car lost control on slippery roads. When these events occur, sensors and semiconductor devices recognize them, and the anti-lock braking system is triggered when the driver applies the brakes. As a result, semiconductors are a crucial part of the automotive industry, and over the course of the projection period, the market is expected to grow at a quick rate.
  • The need for safety technology, including parking assistance, lane departure warnings, collision avoidance systems, electronic stability control, tire pressure monitors, traction control, airbags, and telematics, is increasing as a result of the increase in road accidents around the world. Automotive semiconductors are a crucial part of many advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) technologies that let ADAS systems function properly, identify and classify items in the path of the vehicle, and then warn the driver of the immediate surroundings and the state of the road.
  • These systems can also autonomously slow down or stop the car depending on the road conditions due to calculations conducted by semiconductors and related components. Traffic-related deaths have significantly increased over the past few years and now account for the world’s highest mortality rate.
  • The demand for electric and hybrid cars is rising on a global scale. The principal factor anticipated to accelerate the emergence of an electrical vehicle mainstream market in the short term is the cost reduction of parts such as lithium-ion batteries, sensors, and microcontrollers. Additionally, governments all over the world are vigorously promoting electric vehicles due to their crucial role in lowering carbon emissions and tackling air pollution. Currently, only 1% of newly marketed vehicles are electric, but as component costs decrease, both consumers and manufacturers are switching to electric vehicles.
  • Internal combustion engine, or ICE, powered cars have long been the driving force behind innovation in the automotive industry. However, as autonomy and electrification become more widely used in the automobile industry, it is projected that the need for high-tech vehicles with improved functionality, supported by semiconductors and processors, will rise.

The Passenger Vehicle Segment Led the Automotive Semiconductor Market

  • As the trend toward mobility-on-demand gains traction, passenger cars place a greater emphasis on greener technologies. By providing incentives and tax breaks to e-passenger cars like e-buses, several governments are attempting to increase the use of electric vehicles in public transportation in order to reduce CO2
  • Thus, there will be a higher demand for autonomous vehicles as a result of the widespread deployment of this cutting-edge technology. This is where e-drive systems are useful for lightening the vehicle’s weight, offering a great chance for manufacturers to implement several solutions, including discrete power devices, integrated ICs, sensors, and other parts, to improve their passenger vehicles.
  • India, for example, established regulations for Corporate Average Fuel Efficiency that mandate manufacturers boost their fuel efficiency by 30% or more starting in 2022. Battery management systems, among other things, help businesses like Toshiba and NXP Semiconductor develop fuel-saving technology in passenger cars by storing the electric energy created during deceleration.
  • In addition, legislation mandating various ADAS versions in passenger vehicles has been passed in several North American, European, and Asian countries. For instance, the European Union has unveiled Vision Zero, a strategy to eliminate traffic fatalities by the year 2050. The authority wants to reduce fatalities and injuries by half by 2030.
  • The strategic plan further specifies that by 2022, new passenger vehicles must come equipped with critical safety technologies, including autonomous emergency braking, lane departure warning, and weariness & attention recognition. To increase safety ratings and draw in more customers, major automakers deploy ADAS technology.
  • Top automakers, as a result, either standardize safety features across all models or provide them as options. Overall, as ADAS features become more prevalent, there will be a rise in demand for ultrasonic sensors, radar sensors, sophisticated automotive ICs, and LiDAR.

Competitive Landscape

The market is moderately consolidated with a number of national and regional firms. Market participants highlight acquisitions as a strategy for expanding their product portfolios and opening up new markets.
