Key points to remember

  • National regulations and the annual inspection of sophisticated computers of a critical nature have forced manufacturers to move towards standardization of computers to minimize costs, such as the restriction of exhaust emissions or the imposition of active safety devices such as than ADAS and security systems.

  • Customers are constantly looking for more practical, easy-to-drive and safer automobiles, while automakers are willing to produce more inventive products. Although both are expensive, the built-in calculators seem to strike a good balance between cost and product innovation.

  • In recent years, the use of highly distributed automotive ECUs in vehicles has increased dramatically. When a large number of ECUs are mounted on a vehicle, the available space automatically becomes limited. This has led manufacturers to adopt integrated ECUs that handle many control functions from a single device to save weight and space.

  • The global automotive electronic control unit market is expected to increase due to the increasing adoption of embedded ECUs. From a telematics point of view, standardization is already a well-known issue in automotive electronics. This could create an opportunity for the ECU market to see significant revenue growth.

  • The ECU assemblies can be tuned in order to achieve the smooth performance of the vehicle and also help to improve the fuel efficiency of the vehicle. These upgraded models equipped with ECUs are the major reason for the growth of the market over the past decade.

  • The global automotive ECU market is expected to grow at a steady rate of 5.1% CAGR during the assessment period. The United States is expected to lead the global automotive ECU market by holding the largest market share throughout the analysis period, accounting for more than US$17.4 billion in absolute dollar opportunity over the past 10 coming years.
