Global Automotive Electronic Materials Market, Forecast to 2023

This research service focuses on different product segments of the global automotive electronic materials market, such as circuit board protection materials and thermal management materials. Circuit board protection materials have been sub-segmented into products such as low pressure molding compounds, encapsulants, conformal coatings, potting compounds, and gaskets & sealants. Thermal management materials have been sub-segmented into various products such as thermal adhesives, thermal tapes, thermal grease, gap fillers, and phase change materials. Each of the sub-products are further segmented by their chemical compositions in terms of unit shipment. The market is also segmented by different applications of each product type. Applications of automotive electronic materials include interiors, sensors, powertrain, thermal systems, and hybrid vehicles. The study also encompasses in-depth regional demand and competitive analysis. The timeframe covered by the research is 2013 to 2023, with 2016 being the base year. The market is forecast from 2017 to 2023.

Megatrends:
The global automotive electronic materials market has experienced strong growth in the recent past, owing to the burgeoning electronic applications in vehicles. The vast majority of technical innovations in a modern vehicle revolve around electronics and its efficient usage to improve vehicle safety, convenience, and infotainment. The growth in automotive electronic materials is directly proportional to the growth in electronic applications in vehicles.

Influencing Factors:
Some of the factors influencing the automotive electronic materials market include the robust growth in passenger vehicle demand from the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region, growth in semiconductor content in vehicles around the world, and customer preference for better driver safety and in-vehicle convenience. Moreover, with miniaturization of electronic components, demand for high performance materials is expected to increase. However, the market operates under considerable cost pressure. The growth opportunity of the market lies in the rapidly developing market for electric and hybrid vehicles, particularly in Europe, the US, and China. Considerably higher amount of electronic materials will be required in these modern vehicles. Moreover, autonomous vehicles are expected to come into the picture in the near future, boosting the demand for automotive electronics even further.

Regional Trends:
Traditionally, the automotive electronic materials market has been dominated by Europe, owing to the region’s leadership in luxury and premium vehicle production with high electronic functionalities. Although the APAC region is mainly dominated by economy vehicles, the sheer growth in vehicle manufacturing, coupled with improving electronic content in vehicles, is expected to push the APAC region to the leadership position over the forecast period. The APAC region is experiencing a massive technology overhaul in vehicles in terms of electronic architecture. As electronic applications in the region continue to go up, thermal management material demand is expected to grow proportionally, driving revenue in the region. China and Japan are the main countries in the region that will facilitate revenue growth in the region.
