Report Description

There is growing demand for convenience, advanced safety and comfort systems which is responsible for growth of automotive microcontrollers. Automotive microcontrollers are used for designing large, complex electronic systems or smaller independent applications. Microcontrollers are being used by automobile manufacturers for different requirements such as engine control, power steering, antilock brakes, and seating. An automotive microcontroller enables automatic control sensing and also helps in increasing speed of execution. It enhances safety features such as high temperature control and air bag control. Currently, they are being used in safety features, such as surround view cameras, automated braking & lighting, lane change warning advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and blind spot detection. Microcontrollers are also being installed in infotainment systems providing connectivity to vehicle network. Due to the enhancement in energy efficiency, adoption of hybrid electric vehicles are rising. Hybrid electric vehicles require relatively large number of microcontrollers as compared to conventional vehicles. Number of microcontrollers required for vehicles has increased due to modernization of vehicles. There is rapid increase in rate of deployment of advanced applications in mid-range and luxury vehicles.

Rising popularity for infotainment in automobiles is contributing to the increasing demand of automotive microcontrollers. Furthermore, strict automotive security and safety norms introduced by the government are supporting the utilization of automotive microcontrollers. There is rapid rise in installations of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), and rising preference of vehicle electrification among OEMs and Tier I suppliers. Thus, growing innovation of the vehicle accelerates the installation rate of microcontrollers, shift toward electric vehicles and reducing fuel consumption and emissions are the major factors which are anticipated to drive the market during the forecast period.

There are certain challenges related to cost and quality trade-off for manufacturing microcontrollers. Moreover, automobile microcontrollers of different specifications have complex designs. Furthermore, there are chances of operation failure in extreme conditions. Thus, rising demand for economic automobiles and increasing security threats are expected to restrain the market growth during the forecast period.
