This report covers the impact of COVID-19 on this global market

According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Automotive Electronic Control Unit Market is accounted for $92.04 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach $148.77 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 7.1% during the forecast period. The automotive electronic control unit is an embedded system utilized to control electrical systems in vehicles. It helps in collecting input from various sensors mounted on vehicle components and relying on actuators to manage the functionalities of automobiles. 

Market Dynamics:

Driver:

Increase in demand for automotive


The automotive industry is growing toward a new world with sustainability, changing consumer behavior, encompassing electric vehicles, connected cars, mobility fleet sharing, and improving lifestyles. In addition, the demand for electric vehicles promotes the demand for electronic control units in these vehicles. Manufacturers of parts and components of IC engine vehicles are now expanding their business into the electric vehicle domain. Thus, the increase in demand for electric vehicles is likely to increase the demand for an electronic control unit in the near future.

Restraint:

Increasing Consumer Preference for BYOD


A key factor restraining the growth of the automotive electronic control unit market is the increasing consumer preference for BYOD (bring your own device) and the approach to ECU consolidation. Unlike conventional cockpit electronics systems, BYOD technology eliminates the need for embedded display and infotainment systems in the vehicle. It also indirectly decreases the use of ECUs, which are needed to run these technologies. Moreover, OEMs are adopting BYOD technology as it is easy to use and helps to cut down the overall cost of the vehicle.

Opportunity:

Stringent safety regulations set by governments


The vehicle's safety plays a vital role while implementing a safety feature or a safety system in a vehicle. So, the government of several countries implemented several protocols, such as the compulsion of airbags and anti-lock braking systems among others in every vehicle. Hence, vehicles equipped with safety standards are least likely to cause injury to the occupants. Thus, the government's compulsion of stringent safety regulations anticipates the demand for electronic control units (ECUs) used in the vehicle’s safety systems.

Threat:

Technical failures and expensive repairs


Technical failures of the automotive electronic control unit may cancel the engine's fuel setting and timing, negatively affecting vehicle performance. This may cause intermittent faults in the vehicle. Electronic control unit failure may cause fuel efficiency, acceleration, and power reduction. The control units are very difficult, and most interrelated controls influence each other. Therefore, a malfunctioning control unit may cause fatal problems such as triggering airbags when not needed. Such unit failures lead to an extra cost burden on consumers. Therefore, this may hamper the growth of the automotive electronic control units market.

The light commercial vehicle segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

The light commercial vehicle segment is estimated to have a lucrative growth due to the sizeable number of luxury light-duty vehicles in Europe and North America and the increasing demand for these vehicles in the Asia Pacific region is increasing the demand for automotive ECUs. Luxury light-duty vehicles use a large number of ECUs as these vehicles are equipped with advanced vehicle electronics functions for better comfort, convenience, and safety.

The advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) and safety system segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) and safety system segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR growth during the forecast period owing to the rising demand for advanced driving-assisted features in all types of vehicles. Also, the few semiautonomous vehicles growing in demand will create advanced features and component requirements, increasing market growth.

Region with highest share:

North America is projected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period due to the increasing use of safety systems in standard vehicles. The increase in the installation of electronic systems in passenger cars, light commercial vehicles, and SUVs is likely to drive the growth of the automotive electronic control unit market in the region.

Region with highest CAGR:

Asia Pacific is projected to have the highest CAGR over the forecast period owing to the increase in production and demand for passenger cars and electric vehicles, the rising demand for advanced electronics in vehicles, the growing purchasing power of the consumers, and rising consumer awareness for safety features in the developing countries.
