Automotive Passive Electronic Components Market Analysis

The Automotive Passive Electronic Components Market size is estimated at USD 5.60 billion in 2024, and is expected to reach USD 8.08 billion by 2029, growing at a CAGR of 7.60% during the forecast period (2024-2029).

  • The automotive industry is leading the way in the increasing need for passive components. The demand for electronic vehicle systems is rising for various uses, such as electronic control units (ECUs) under the hood, infotainment systems, and advanced driver assistance systems (ADASs). Automotive electronic systems require high-quality components to guarantee dependable performance, like capacitors for filtering and storing energy, varistors for circuit protection, connectors for small ECUs, and RF and microwave passive components and antennas for connectivity support.
  • Automobile manufacturers increasingly integrate electronic components into traditional combustion engine vehicles to enhance fuel efficiency, reduce emissions, and improve overall vehicle performance. This trend drives the demand for passive electronic components like resistors, capacitors, and inductors. For instance, according to SIAM India, during the fiscal year 2023, more than 3.89 million passenger vehicles were sold in the domestic market.
  • ADAS (advanced driver assistance systems), such as collision avoidance systems and adaptive cruise control, rely heavily on passive electronic components like capacitors for sensor signal processing, filtering, and data transmission. Modern vehicles feature advanced infotainment systems, telematics, and connectivity solutions that require passive components for wireless communication, signal processing, and data transmission.
  • As automotive electronics become more compact and integrated, passive components must meet increasingly stringent size and weight requirements. Miniaturization challenges, such as maintaining performance while reducing package size, can limit market growth. In addition, designing and manufacturing automotive-grade passive electronic components require significant research, development, and testing. High development costs limit innovation in the market.
  • Environmental concerns, including sustainability and climate change, influence automotive industry trends and regulations. Growing emphasis on ecological sustainability may drive the adoption of vehicles' energy-efficient and environmentally friendly electronic components. Moreover, trade policies, tariffs, and trade agreements can impact the cost and availability of automotive components. Changes in trade policies may disrupt supply chains, affect pricing, and influence market competition.

Automotive Passive Electronic Components Market Trends

Capacitors to Witness Significant Growth

  • Advancements in capacitor technology have led to the development of smaller, lighter, and more efficient capacitors. This enables automotive manufacturers to design compact and lightweight electronic systems, reducing overall vehicle weight and improving fuel efficiency. The increasing adoption of ADAS (advanced driver assistance systems), infotainment systems, and automobile connectivity features require robust and reliable electronic components. Capacitors support implementing these features by providing a stable power supply and ensuring the smooth operation of sensors, cameras, and communication modules.
  • For instance, in August 2023, TDK Corporation in India (Nasik) was set for business prospects as it has enhanced its capacity. This specific facility in Nashik is growing its production capabilities and has introduced a new structure spanning approximately 23,000 square meters. In the coming four years, more production lines will be established for DC capacitors used in automotive sectors. These capacitors will be manufactured for the local market in India and overseas export. The increase in capacity creates new prospects that will support the company's medium-term growth strategy.
  • Stringent government regulations and fuel economy standards drive the demand for energy-efficient automotive systems. Capacitors help optimize energy usage and minimize power losses, aligning with regulator requirements and sustainability goals. Capacitors are integral to the functioning of automotive electronic systems, and the demand is expected to continue growing as vehicle electrification, connectivity, and automation trends accelerate.
  • For instance, in May 2024, Hyundai Motor Co. planned to utilize the investment already set aside for the United States to manufacture hybrid vehicles at its EV plant. The third-largest automaker globally, along with affiliate Kia Corp, intends to use funds allocated for EV and battery manufacturing facilities in Georgia to produce hybrid cars. Hyundai Motor Group of South Korea, which includes Hyundai Motor and Kia, announced plans to invest USD 12.6 billion in building new electric vehicle and battery production plants in Georgia, marking its most significant investment outside of South Korea.

Europe to Hold Significant Market Share

  • Europe is home to some of the world's largest automotive markets, including the United Kingdom, Germany, and France. Europe accounts for a significant portion of worldwide vehicle production and sales. The rising demand for commercial and passenger vehicles in these countries contributes to the market for passive electronic components used in various automotive systems.
  • Europe is experiencing rapid growth in the adoption of electric vehicles (EVs), battery electric vehicles (BEVs), and hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs). European government incentives and technological advancements are driving the shift toward electrified powertrains. This transition increases the demand for passive electronic components such as capacitors, inductors, and resistors used in electric drivetrains, battery management systems, and onboard electronics. For instance, in 2023, electric cars, including both BEV and PHEV, accounted for approximately 4.8& of passenger cars in Germany, as reported by KBA. The proportion of electric vehicles has steadily risen each year within the specified time frame, particularly for BEV models.
  • The automotive industry in European countries like the United Kingdom, Germany, and France is at the forefront of innovation, strongly focusing on developing advanced vehicle technologies. This includes the integration of smart features, connectivity solutions, and ADAS. These technologies require various passive electronic components to support functions such as vehicle networking.
  • For instance, in November 2023, the United Kingdom government allocated EUR 150 million (USD 189 million) as part of a larger EUR 4.5 billion (USD 5.7 million) investment to support British manufacturing and stimulate economic expansion. This funding is aimed at the connected and automated mobility (CAM) sector up to 2030. The budget allocated to help CAM will be supplemented by industry contributions, which will allow the United Kingdom's Centre for Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CCAV) to solidify the UK's position as a global leader in the creation, advancement, implementation, and production of self-driving technologies, products, and services.
