Automotive Semiconductor Market Trends

The global automotive semiconductor market size was valued at USD 43.26 billion in 2022 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.1% from 2023 to 2030. Increasing penetration of electronic components in luxury to mass-produced cars, increasing adoption of electronic control unit (ECU) in modern vehicles, and growing focus on safety systems in vehicles is expected to lead to steady growth of the market over the next few years. The other factors contributing to the growth of the market include the proliferation of connected cars, infotainment systems, automotive safety systems, and fuel efficiency standards. The growing demand for electric and hybrid vehicles presents a significant opportunity for the automotive semiconductor market. These vehicles require semiconductors for devices such as ADAS and ECUs to manage the battery, motor, and other components, which creates a demand for sophisticated and specialized semiconductors in the automotive semiconductor market. These developments in the market are likely to impact the supply chain, aftermarket, and manufacturers of semiconductor electronic components. As a result, conventional diagnostic systems may be replaced by onboard diagnostic systems to enable the continuous monitoring of the condition of a vehicle's mechanical and electrical components.

As per a report published by the autonomous intergovernmental organization, International Energy Agency (IEA), EVs play an integral role in curbing carbon emissions. Moreover, the adoption of electric vehicles grew by 13% globally in 2022 compared to 2020. Three key trends - namely autonomy, electrification, and connected mobility - are expected to emerge as major revenue drivers for the global automotive semiconductor market. These trends play a pivotal role in driving the demand for electronic components in a car, subsequently driving the demand for semiconductors in the automotive space.

According to the World Health Organization, approximately there were 1.24 million casualities of individuals as a result of road traffic crashes each year. This has triggered an increased focus on the prevention of accidents through the implementation of active safety measures. As a result, active safety features are increasingly being integrated into vehicles to help avoid collisions and accidents. Amongst the vehicle safety provisions, crash avoidance technology, including automatic emergency braking systems, automatics driver assistance system (ADAS), for passenger vehicles, is set to remain a standard feature for majority of the new vehicles produced from 2022 to 2023. These technologies such as ADAS, emergency braking system among others uses sensors for monitoring changes in vehicle behaviour, and the semiconductor is a part of the senors. Thus, with the rise in the adoption of vehicle safety systems, the market for automotive semiconductors is expected to grow significantly over the forecast period.

The Russia-Ukraine war has had some impact on the automotive semiconductor production, but  it is not a direct cause-and-effect relationship. The automotive semiconductor industry has been facing a shortage of semiconductors globally due to several factors, including the COVID-19 pandemic and disruptions in the semiconductor supply chain. The Russia-Ukraine conflict has added to these disruptions in the global supply chain, which has affected the automotive semiconductor production. The Minister of State for Electronics and Information Technology in the Government of India stated that Ukraine and Russia are major sources of Neon and Hexafluorobutadiene gases, moreover, the impact of the war is expected affect supply chains of semiconductors. These gases are an essential element for producing semiconductor chips as they are utilized for chip production in lithography process.
