Global Automotive Electronic Control Unit (ECU) Market is valued at approximately USD 41.3 billion in 2019 and is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than 6.6% over the forecast period 2020-2027. An electronic control unit (ECU), also referred to as an electronic control module (ECM), is a type of embedded system in automotive electronics that regulates one or more of the electrical systems in a vehicle. Nowadays, vehicles integrated with 100 ECUs or more, managing functions that range from the vital (such as engine and power steering control) to comfort (like power windows, HVAC, and seats), to security and access (e.g., keyless entry and door locks). These systems also capable to control passive safety features, including airbags, and even fundamental active safety features, for example, automatic emergency braking. This factor may strengthen the adoption for automotive ECU across the globe. Moreover, the surge in sales and production of passenger cars and commercial vehicles, stringent government norms and regulation concerning occupant safety, and technological advancements in automotive electronics industry are the few factors responsible for the high CAGR of the market during the forecast period. According to the International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers (OICA), the passenger cars production in Asia accounted at around 43.4 million in 2018, signifying an increase from 24.6 million units in 2008. Similarly, the OICA also estimated that the production of commercial vehicle in America was stood at around 11 million units in 2017 and is increased to nearly 12 million units in 2018. This, in turn, is likely to strengthen the demand for Automotive Electronic Control Unit (ECU), thereby contributing to the market growth around the world. However, the increasing design complexities and high ECU repair cost are the few factors restraining the market growth over the forecast period of 2020-2027.
The regional analysis of the global Automotive Electronic Control Unit (ECU) market is considered for the key regions such as Asia Pacific, North America, Europe, Latin America, and Rest of the World. Asia-Pacific is the leading/significant region across the world in terms of market share owing to the rising government support to implement automotive electronic control unit (ECU), along with the wide presence of market vendors in the region. Whereas Asia-Pacific is anticipated to exhibit the highest growth rate / CAGR over the forecast period 2020-2027. Factors such as the rise in production of passenger vehicles and luxury cars coupled with stringent government norms concerning passenger safety in the developing nations, such as China and India, are the few factors creating a lucrative opportunity for the growth of the automotive electronic control unit (ECU) market in the Asia-Pacific region.
