Semiconductors installed in automobiles assist in controlling many functions, such as maintaining the vehicle's air conditioner system and assuring the vehicle's safety. Furthermore, advancements in vehicle-based technology, such as the introduction of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), telematics & infotainment and an increased inclination toward adopting electric vehicles, contribute to the global growth of the automotive industry semiconductor market.

Automotive Semiconductor Market Dynamics and Trends

Rapid advances in the automotive sector, increased demand for automobile safety features, and innovative technologies for advanced user interface (UI) fuel global market growth. Furthermore, constraints like operational failures in extreme climatic conditions, high initial cost, and complex construction are barriers to global market growth. However, the rise in demand for electric and hybrid vehicles and advanced technological improvement and innovation in ADAS present good chances for market expansion throughout the projection period.

Increase in the automotive industry

In the automotive sector, a semiconductor is designed to regulate the fail-safe system, manage electrical control unit functions and automotive fault-tolerant systems, where it handles the error that occurs in the vehicle (accelerator, anti-lock brake interface and broken lights) and informs the microcontrollers and safety system installed throughout cars. For example, if a car loses traction on snow-covered roads, it would highlight fault tolerance.

In such cases, the incident is detected by sensors and semiconductor devices, which then activate anti-lock braking when the driver uses the brakes. As a result, semiconductors are an essential component of the automotive industry and rapid expansion in the automotive industry is predicted to complement market growth during the projection period.

The increased need for automotive safety features

Due to increased road accidents globally, demand for safety features such as parking assistance, collision avoidance systems, lane departure warnings, traction control, electronic stability control, tire pressure monitors, airbags and telematics is increasing. Automotive semiconductors are a crucial component utilized in several advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) technologies, allowing ADAS systems to work quickly and identify and classify items in the vehicle's path, alerting the driver about the immediate surroundings and road conditions.

Furthermore, based on calculations done by semiconductors and other components, these systems can autonomously decelerate or stop the car based on road conditions. Road traffic accidents are a leading cause of death worldwide and there has been a significant increase in the number of fatalities in recent years. For example, about 1.3 million people die in road traffic accidents each year, according to a World Health Organization research published in 2021.

Moreover, youths have a greater rate of fatal road traffic injuries. These reasons are causing a surge in demand for vehicle safety measures. Automobile companies are developing and introducing safety features to fulfill the needs of their customers. For example, HELLA (a business that manufactures state-of-the-art lighting and electronics components) announced a manufacturing schedule for the latest 77 GHz radar technology in February 2020.

Operational failures in adverse weather conditions

Operational problems hamper the automotive semiconductor market in extreme climatic conditions such as extreme cold and excessive heat. When exposed to high temperatures, semiconductors tend to melt or crack, increasing resistance and making the signal too weak, resulting in failures. When adjusted to an appropriate temperature, the resistance decreases and becomes steady.

Extreme cold is also bad for semiconductors since it causes them to stop working. Its typical operating temperature is -25°C and its maximum temperature are +150°C. As a result, countries like Russia and Canada choose fewer semiconductors. As a result, consumers are shifting toward alternative electronic components like microcontrollers, ICs and others, affecting the growth of the automotive semiconductor market.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis on Automotive Semiconductor Market

The COVID-19 outbreak has disrupted global business and economic activity. The outbreak will impact the worldwide market for automotive semiconductors in the short term. Furthermore, the automobile industry faces several obstacles: decreased purchasing power due to COVID-19, charging infrastructure improvements and consumer expectations of future technological advancements to lower car pricing and provide a greater range.

Furthermore, according to the Korea Automotive Technology Institute, or Katech, the global scarcity of automotive semiconductors, which began around the end of 2020, may continue to impact the global vehicle industry in the first half of 2022. Some businesses may continue to be affected even after 2023. One of the effects of COVID-19 has been an increase in the average semiconductor value per car sold.

For example, in some regions of Europe, the government solely offers incentives for electric automobiles. The distinct from the "cash for clunkers" plan implemented in some areas following the 2009 financial crisis to get outdated cars off the road benefited the selling of smaller, less technologically advanced vehicles in many cases.

Automotive Semiconductor Market Segmentation Analysis

By vehicle type, the global automotive semiconductor market is segmented into passenger cars, lightweight vehicles, heavyweight vehicles and others.

Various government initiatives supporting passenger cars growth

As mobility-on-demand trends rise, taxis and passenger autos focus more on greener technologies. Various governments are taking initiatives to increase electric vehicles in public transportation to reduce CO2 emissions by providing incentives and tax breaks for e-passenger vehicles such as e-buses. In India, for example, the government has adopted several efforts, such as the National Electric Mobility Mission Plan (NEMMP), the Car Mission Plan and others, to enable long-term growth in the automotive industry and reduce emissions and oil dependency. To combat pollution, the government intends to bring local rules in line with international standards by 2020, allowing India to transition from BS-4 emissions to BS-6 emissions (EUR 6 equivalent).

Furthermore, India has established Corporate Average Fuel Efficiency guidelines that require manufacturers to boost their fuel efficiency by 30 percent or more beginning in 2022. Companies such as Toshiba and NXP Semiconductor improve fuel-saving technology in passenger vehicles by, among other things, storing the electric energy created during deceleration utilizing battery management systems. Due to the broad deployment of the technologies, there will be a growing need for self-driving automobiles. It is where e-drive systems come in to help with vehicle weight reduction. It gives an excellent opportunity for automakers to implement various solutions, such as discrete power devices, integrated circuits, sensors and other components, to improve passenger vehicles.

Increased demand for safety systems, on the other hand, can be attributed to the advent of ADAS, or automated emergency braking systems, as well as improved road safety standards, which are driving up demand for automotive semiconductor components globally. For example, many North America, Europe and Asia-Pacific countries have established legislation requiring various kinds of ADAS in passenger vehicles. The European Union, for example, has declared Vision Zero, a plan to decrease traffic fatalities to zero by 2050. The authority wants to cut deaths and injuries in half by 2030.
