The increasing use of processors to perform specific tasks where the relationship of input and output is defined is propelling the growth of the global automotive semiconductor market. The different types of processors available in the market include microprocessor units, microcontroller units (MCUs), and digital signal processors (DSP). Digital signal processors take real-world signals such as voice, audio, video, temperature, pressure, or position that is digitized and then manipulate them mathematically. These systems offer analysis that helps in understanding the performance and other such metrics in a vehicle in the global automotive semiconductor market.

The growing demands of advanced systems and low-budget applications are fueling the growth of the analog integrated circuit (IC) segment in the global market. The increasing adoption of sensors such as lane departure systemnight vision, front object CCD camera, front airbag sensor, ASCD, night-time pedestrian warning, and drowsiness sensors will drive demand in the global automotive semiconductor industry.


The application segment is divided into body electronics, telematics, powertrain, safety, and chassis. Body electronics occupied the largest share in 2017, growing at a CAGR of around 4% during the forecast period. The increasing demand for computing & networking performance in vehicles is fueling the electronics complexity and safety concerns globally. Advancements in body electronics have helped in making new generation vehicles safer and more comfortable for drivers. The introduction of solutions that use efficient power management systems to minimize load on vehicle battery will boost demand in this segment. Some of the primary components body electronics in the global automotive semiconductor market are the remote keyless entry, the electronic battery sensor, electronic immobilizer, central in-vehicle communication node, dc/dc converters for start/stop systems, and body computer module.

Telematics helps transmit, store, and receive information from telecommunications devices to remote objects over a network. The increasing adoption of gasoline direct inject systems instead of multi-port fuel injection systems is propelling the demand for the powertrain. Chassis systems support steering and suspension knuckles, engine cradles and mounts, axle housings and covers, driveline components, and transmission mounts, augmenting the growth of the automotive semiconductor market.


The passenger car segment dominated more than 2/3rdof the share in 2017, growing at a CAGR of around 6% during the forecast period.
