The International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers had revealed that a total of 97,302,534 cars and commercial vehicles had been manufactured across the globe in 2017. Practically, the number of ECUs in a car could be anywhere between 70 to more than 150, depending on the type of vehicles, indicating the massive demand that exists for the automotive electronics control unit market. The large number of ECUs have permitted enhanced safety features and external connectivity solutions to be installed in high-end as well as low-cost vehicles. Commercial vehicles have especially benefitted from the ECU’s ability to regulate the fuel injection system, as increased fuel efficiency plays a vital role in achieving economical goods transportation.

Notable advancements in ECUs have stimulated auto manufacturers to find ways for reducing emissions through efficient control systems, ushering in a transformation of the automotive electronics control unit market and leading to the growth of smart technologies. The advent of electric vehicles has furthered the development of ECUs required for complex monitoring and operating of a vehicle. Considered to be a rapidly expanding source of remuneration for the automotive ECU market, the battery electric vehicles (BEVs or just EVs) are gaining increased momentum with each passing year. Worldwide environmental concerns have been the primary driver for the EV industry, coercing nations to invest heavily into boosting the adoption of EVs.

The 32 -bit controller segment in the automotive electronics control unit market is expected to witness growth from 2018 to 2024. The controller components are mainly deployed in vehicles parts owing to the associated benefits that include lower power requirements and design simplifications. The conventional control units integrating 8-bit and 16-bit controllers have complex designs as compared to the advanced 32-bit options. Several automotive functions are supported by innovative controllers such as power tool processing, in-vehicle transmission, and modified engine management. Additionally, the trend of ECU miniaturization that lowers hardware costs and simplifies the design is further driving the automotive electronics control unit market.

Commercial vehicles are witnessing a rise in the implementation of control units, which is further driving the automotive electronics control unit market growth. Major control unit functions in commercial vehicles, such as trucks and agricultural vehicles, include transition lighting, higher current, and sensing accuracy for smaller loads. For instance, Infineon Technologies offers its 24 V body ECUs to agricultural vehicles and high load capacity trucks in the automotive electronics control unit market.

According to the U.S. government, a huge amount of greenhouse gas emissions in the country originates from the transportation sector and in 2016, almost 23% of it was contributed by medium and heavy duty commercial vehicles. As such, not only electric passenger and luxury cars but electric commercial vehicles have also started to attract demand from fleets and major corporations to cut down on their carbon footprint.
