Global Two-wheeler ECU Market 2017-2021
About Two-wheeler ECU
An electronic control unit (ECU) is a device that controls one or more electrical systems or its subsystems in any vehicle. It is a component of the engine management system (EMS). The ECU is a programmable computer chip with pre-installed programs and collects the demands on the engine, prioritizes them, and then implements them. The demands include the position of the accelerator pedal and exhaust system requirements for the mixture composition. Torque is the key criterion for meeting these demands. The air-fuel ratio is adjusted to provide torque as economically and cleanly as possible. Moreover, the ECU also allows active driving safety systems, such as ABS and motorcycle stability control, to intervene in the engine torque. Mechanical and hydraulic systems are phasing out gradually and are being replaced with electronic or hybrid substitutes subsequently.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global two-wheeler ECU market to grow at a CAGR of 11.25% during the period 2017-2021.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global two-wheeler ECU market for 2017-2021. To calculate the market size, the report considers the production volume of motorcycle and average selling price of ECU in OEM and aftermarket.
The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Two-wheeler ECU Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global two-wheeler ECU market: Bosch, DENSO, Delphi Automotive, and Continental
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Infineon Technologies, Nikki, SEDEMAC, Magneti Marelli, and dSPACE.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Smartphone connectivity for two-wheeler diagnostics. Bosch developed a smart, versatile, and scalable ECU called Motronic. This ECU is advanced technology, which makes it possible to set up a connection with a smartphone. This will give riders an interface where they can see information about the engine. For instance, in the future, riders will be able to see and store information about the speed of the vehicle, fuel consumption, and route distance on their smartphones. Immobilizers can also be activated by a smartphone by cutting off the fuel supply to the engine.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Increased electrification of mechanical components. Technology has grown rapidly in the auto electronics industry. In the last decade, electronic systems and functions have replaced mechanical components in modern two-wheelers to an extent. The driving forces behind this development are the ever-growing needs for less emissions, greater safety and energy consumption, driver assistance, more information to the driver, and last but not the least the ease and pleasure of driving.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Rise in electric two-wheelers can limit ECU use. Currently, the traditional internal combustion engine (ICE) two-wheelers dominate the market due to their tested and proven engine mechanism and performance. However, in the last few years, electric motorcycles have gone from novelty to serious contenders. With rising global concerns about climate change, consumers have slowly shifted from traditional products to green products. Vehicular pollution has been considered as one of the root causes of air pollution. Electric vehicles were not used because of battery inefficiencies, but now electric vehicle battery has drastically improved in terms of capacity to hold more charge—that is, an increase in battery density has helped to store more charge. The range and power provided are better than that provided by a traditional IC engine vehicle. With growing network of charging stations, consumers can buy the vehicles with confidence. An electric motor has only one moving part, unlike numerous moving parts in an IC engine, and helps it to deliver instantaneous power and torque without any loss of energy. An electric motor is smaller in size compared with a conventional IC engine, and the absence of drive shaft, fuel tank, and transmission gives manufacturers more room to pack more features in the vehicles.
