About Automotive Door Control Unit (DCU)

An ECU is an embedded system that controls the number of electrical systems associated with an advanced motor vehicle. The ECU which controls the function related to the door is known as a door control unit (DCU). The DCU detects the vehicle condition based on the input from the sensor switch and passed through the microprocessor and thus drives the door lock features or the others feature associated with the door. DCUs are responsible for controlling the various door operations.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global automotive door control unit (DCU) market to grow at a CAGR of 7.53% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Automotive Door Control Unit (DCU) Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global automotive door control unit (DCU) market: Continental, Brose, WABCO, and Sioux Logena.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: KOSTAL Automotive Electrical Systems, STMicroelectronics, Mitsubishi Electric, Stoneridge, Magneti Marelli, and Schaltbau.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is innovation in the 32-bit microcontroller. The 32-bit microcontroller that is used for the DCU is going through numerous advancements. This microcontroller has been improved in terms of accuracy and has enhanced processing performance with more power efficiency, which is one of the most desired requirements for the automotive industry. This microcontroller is powered by the advanced control algorithm, voice control, and capacitive touch sensing; these features make it appropriate for the addition of advanced features.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is increased focus of OEMs toward development of autonomous vehicles. The global automotive industry is moving toward autonomous vehicles. Though the industry is moving in quick steps toward autonomous cars, it is still at a nascent stage. All major OEMs and tier-1 suppliers have already initiated projects to commercialize the concept of autonomous vehicles. Audi, Ford, Continental, Bosch, and Delphi are the most active players in this space. In addition, non-automotive companies, such as Google and Apple are investing in the R&D of autonomous vehicles by leveraging their expertise in communications.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is cost pressure on tier-1 suppliers. In the global automotive industry, generally, OEMs are liable for warranty and other costs in case of any recalls. However, this has changed over the past few years with the emergence of liability sharing model between different stakeholders in the value chain. As per the cost sharing model, in case of any recall, the costs related to the defective component is shared with the component or part manufacturer. Because of this new policy, the whole probability model has been revamped. Emerging countries in Asia are the largest manufacturers of automotive electronics in the world.
