The global automotive electronics market is expected to grow at a CAGR of around 8% during 2019-2024.
Automotive electronics are employed in both on-road and off-road vehicles such as trucks, tractors, forklifts, excavators, motorcycles, and hybrid and electric cars. They are primarily used in the functioning of electronic fuel injection, driver assistance and infotainment system to improve the efficiency of the vehicle.
For instance, the anti-lock braking system (ABS) prevents vehicles from skidding on slopes and electronic car security locks provide improved security through remote controlled locks and a central locking system. Besides this, automotive electronics also include satellite-controlled devices for traffic surveillance and diagnostic tools to ensure optimum fuel utilization and maintain engine health.
Technological innovations in the automotive electronics sector is a crucial factor driving the market. The introduction of autonomous or driverless cars that offer a self-driven experience to the user along with the launch of cost-efficient electric vehicles with enhanced features is driving the growth of the market.
Furthermore, a shift toward hybrid and luxury vehicles equipped with in-vehicle entertainment devices offering a more sophisticated and interactive user experience is further augmenting the demand for automotive electronics. Besides this, advanced computing technologies, such as parking assistance, electrical suspensions, braking and steering systems, are applied to reduce accidents and fatalities which are significantly increasing their demand among both manufacturers and consumers.
Additionally, product innovations such as active-window display, remote vehicle shutdown, exhaust emission control and reconfigurable body panels are also catalyzing the growth of the market.
