Among vehicle type, the passenger vehicle sub-segment is expected to showcase highest CAGR in the market during the forecast period, owing to high sales of passenger cars across the globe.
The global automotive electronics market is segmented on basis of vehicle type as bikes and scooters, passenger cars, and commercial vehicles. The passenger vehicle segment is expected to dominate the market, owing to an increase in the fleet size of passenger cars over the forecast period. In automotive passenger cars, electronic components are being used in several automotive parts such as power windows, power steering, windshield wipers, headlight, and infotainment system. For instance, according to the International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers, there was an increase of 1.4% in global sales of passenger vehicles in 2017 with total sales of 71 Billion passenger vehicles.
Figure 2: Global Automotive Electronics Market Value (US$ Bn), 2017 - 2028
The global automotive electronics market was valued at US$ 194.26 Bn in 2019 and is expected to reach US$ 371.36 Bn by 2028 at a CAGR of 7.40% between 2021 and 2028.
Automotive electronics components are being installed in on-road and off-road vehicles such as passenger cars, commercial vehicles, tractors, and forklifts. Automotive electronic components are primarily used for the proper functioning of the electronic fuel injection system, anti-lock braking system (ABS), infotainment system, and automotive dashboard. In addition, automotive electronics components are also used in satellite-controlled devices that can be used for navigation and traffic surveillance, and in automotive vehicle diagnostic tool that is used to ensure maximum fuel utilization and maintain the health of automotive engine.
Rising adoption of the internet of things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI) in automotive vehicles, increasing sales of automotive vehicles, rise in demand for the safety features in-vehicle, and infotainment system, is further expected to propel the demand for automotive electronics over the forecast period. For instance, according to Coherent Market Insights analysis, in the year 2019, approximately 1.4 million vehicles of at least level III autonomy were get sold globally, and it is estimated that by the year 2030, more than 57 million vehicles of level III autonomy will get sold globally.
However, the high initial cost of vehicle components such as infotainment systems and headlights, is expected to restrain the growth of the global automotive electronics market over the forecast period. In addition, low adoption of automotive electronics in several developing economies such as South Africa is further expected to hamper the growth of automotive electronics components.
