Global Automotive Electronic Control Unit Market 2017-2021
About Automotive ECU
ECU is a computer that controls one or many electrical systems in a vehicle. Modern ECUs employ both microprocessors and microcontrollers depending on the computational requirements. The operation of an ECU is similar to that of the basic input/output system (BIOS) of a computer.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global automotive ECU market to grow at a CAGR of 7.4% during the period 2017-2021.

The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global automotive ECU market for 2017-2021. To calculate the market size, the report considers the revenue generated from the sales of automotive ECU.The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Automotive ECU Market 2017-2020
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global automotive ECU market: Autoliv, Robert Bosch, Continental, Delphi Automotive, and DENSO
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Magna International, Hyundai Mobis, ZF TRW, Fujitsu Ten, Minda Corporation, KEFICO, Hitachi Automotive Systems, and Pektron
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The demand for in-vehicle telematics, driver assistance systems, and infotainment systems in modern vehicles is high. Implementation of the above will only be possible if the hosting hardware has multicore processor support, GPU/high-performance graphics, and internet connectivity. The availability of multicore SoC hosting a Linux-based OS has led to rapid advancement in the processing power of ECUs. This will result in consolidation of ECUs in an automobile to a central SoC.”
According to the report, previously, automotive infotainment systems were installed only in premium cars. However, automobile manufacturers are equipping their mid-range vehicles with infotainment systems as a standard feature owing to the growing awareness and the rising demand for telematics and built-in connectivity.
Further, the report states that the automotive industry experienced a gradual decline in the product life cycle. The average lifespan of a vehicle model ranged from 8-10 years. The drastic changes in the form of propulsion technologies, electrification, and engine downsizing have reduced the product's lifespan to 4-6 years. We have seen such a trend in the consumer electronics and mobile device industries; a similar trend is expected in the automotive industry.
Autoliv, Robert Bosch, Continental, Delphi Automotive, DENSO, Magna International, Hyundai Mobis, ZF TRW, Fujitsu Ten, Minda Corporation, KEFICO, Hitachi Automotive Systems, Pektron.
