The global automotive electronic control unit (ecu) market was valued at $87.7 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $142.2 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 5.1% from 2021 to 2030.

The automotive electronic control unit (ECU) is an embedded system used to control electrical systems in vehicles. It assists in collecting input from various sensors mounted on vehicle components and relying on actuators to manage the functionalities of automobiles. Using this data, it operates a wide range of functions, such as keyless entry, engine & steering control, power windows, heating, ventilation & air conditioning (HVAC), and others. It also controls passive and active safety features, such as automatic emergency braking systems and airbags. Furthermore, more advanced ECUs also communicate to the cloud and even other vehicles and infrastructures using vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-everything (V2X) technologies.

The COVID-19 crisis created uncertainty in every market, including the automotive sector. The closure of assembly plants and large-scale manufacturing interruptions led to the decline in global demand for automobiles, indirectly affecting the automotive electronic control unit (ECU) market. Governments across different regions announced total lockdown and temporary shutdown of industries, followed by the closures of national & international borders that restricted the movement of transportation & logistics services. Furthermore, the COVID-19 pandemic interrupted mass manufacturing throughout Europe, closure of the U.S assembly plants, and interruption of Chinese parts exportation, which caused a severe burden on key players leading to merger & acquisition activities. However, the overall service activities of market players registered a steady and favorable recovery in the subsequent months with the increase in sales of passenger cars, which leads to a rise in demand for the automotive electronic control unit (ECU) market. As per the current scenario, the overall global market is getting back on track slowly; with new restrictions and policies and a significant recovery in product sales across the retail sector, owing to the demand for electric vehicles, which positively influences the automotive electronic control unit (ECU) market.

In recent years, vehicles have been equipped with highly distributed control units. Each electronic control unit (ECU) has its functional requirements, providing entertainment and information for an enhanced in-vehicle experience. Thus, the significant growth of tangible luxury offerings in vehicles provides a high level of comfort & safety features, which drives the growth of the electronic control unit (ECU) market. For instance, in April 2021, DENSO Corporation developed its advanced driver assistance technology with Spatial Information Service Electronic Control Unit (SIS ECU) for accurately identifying the position of the vehicle and an Advanced Drive System Electronic Control Unit (ADS ECU) & Advanced Drive Extension Electronic Control Unit (ADX ECU) for high-speed processing of information delivered these products. Thus, the adoption of new technologies has witnessed an increase in electronic and software content in vehicles, consequently increasing the demand for electronic control units (ECU) during the forecast period.

Increase in Demand for Automotive

The automotive industry is racing toward a new world with growing sustainability, changing consumer behavior, encompassing electric vehicles, connected cars, mobility fleet sharing, and improving lifestyles. Developing countries such as India, China, and Brazil are the most promising countries for the automotive sector. Furthermore, demand for electric vehicles globally augments the demand for electronic control units (ECU) in these vehicles. For instance, China is the leading market for electric vehicles; hence, the development in electric vehicles can be correlated to the increase in the demand for ECU in the region, which currently holds the highest market share in terms of both revenue and volume.

Moreover, according to European Automobile Manufactures’ Association (ACEA), in June 2021, passenger car registrations in the European Union increased by 10% as compared to the previous year, owing to their hybrid nature and increased fuel efficiency. As a result, manufacturers of parts and components only of IC engine vehicles are now expanding their business into the electric vehicle domain. Thus, the increase in demand for the electric vehicle is anticipated to increase the demand for ECU in the near future.

Stringent Safety Regulations Set by Governments

The vehicle's safety plays a crucial role while introducing a safety feature or a safety system in a vehicle. Thus, the government of several countries implemented several protocols, such as the compulsion of airbags and anti-lock braking systems (ABS) among others in every vehicle. Hence, vehicles equipped with such safety standards are least likely to cause significant injury to the occupants. In developing countries, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) also provide airbags and ABS as standard features in vehicles supporting the government to improve safety. In India, according to Bharat New Vehicle Safety Assessment Program (BNVSAP) program, from April 2021, front passenger airbags have become mandatory for every vehicle sold in India. The driver and co-driver seat belt alarms must be active till the seats are occupied, and speed warning systems are activated at two levels; at the vehicle exceeding the speed of 80km/hr and 120km/hr. These safety systems need separate ECUs to function and communicate with other vehicle components to provide complete safety to passengers. Thus, the government's compulsion of stringent safety regulations anticipates the demand for electronic control units (ECUs) used in the vehicle’s safety systems.

Demand for Electric and Hybrid Vehicles

The demand for electric and hybrid vehicles is expected to offer a lucrative growth opportunity to automotive manufacturers. Due to growing environmental concerns and increase in fuel prices, major luxury car manufacturers are launching electric variants of their vehicles. In addition, governments are offering attractive incentives and policies to encourage sales of electric vehicles (EVs), which is likely to boost the growth of the electronic control unit (ECU) market. Such transformation in the automotive industry is expected to impact the automakers, electronic component manufacturers, aftermarkets, and supply chain of the industry itself. Moreover, the conventional diagnostic systems are anticipated to be replaced entirely by the onboard diagnostic systems that continually monitor the health of all the electric and mechanical components of the vehicle. Hence, demand for and increase in the sales of electric & hybrid vehicles are anticipated to create lucrative opportunities for the automotive electronic control unit (ECU) market.   

Number of Electronic Control Unit (ECUs) Used Increases Complexity

The electronic control units (ECUs) are embedded systems with embedded software for a particular function. This embedded software is responsible for increasing ECU's line count, complexity, and sophistication. The original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) using ECUs have to manage the increasing complexity leading to the failure of services in vehicles. Similarly, the number of ECUs implemented results in the complex structure of network and communication problems within ECUs. These complexities generated while using multiple ECUs hamper the application of ECU in vehicles, mostly in low-cost vehicles. This situation is expected to hinder the growth of the automotive ECU market in the near future.
