Key Market Trends

The Passenger Vehicle Segment Anticipated To Hold Largest Market Share

The passenger vehicle segment makes a major contribution to the automotive power electronics market. The increased demand for safety systems and fuel-efficient technology associated with vehicle power trains in emerging markets are fueling factors for the dominance of passenger vehicles.

For the past 5 or 10 years, passenger vehicles are getting installed with various safety, comfort, entertainment, and vehicle management features. This is because of factors such as changing preferences of vehicle buyers supported by government legislation towards enhancing vehicle safety. OEMs are also quite active in launching new variants and new models of vehicles that will fulfill the need of customers. Increasing populations in developing economies also encourage OEMs to add specific features in new models of passenger vehicles.

This is done to highlight one's products among other products available in the market. OEMs, Tier I, and Tier II also try to deploy new technology or features in the mass-produced vehicle among vehicle category, i.e., passenger vehicles. These are some of the factors responsible for the dominance of the passenger vehicle segment in the automotive power electronics market.

Automotive Power Electronics Market Key Trends

The Asia-Pacific Region is Likely to Dominate the Market

The Asia-Pacific Automotive Power Electronics Market is expected to hold a significant share in the market during the forecast period. China, South Korea, and Japan account for the largest share of the automotive power electronics market in the Asia-Pacific region. The growth of the market in the Asia-Pacific region can be attributed to the high vehicle production and increased use of advanced electronics in Japan, South Korea, and China.

The governments of these countries have recognized the growth potential of the automotive industry and have consequently taken different initiatives to encourage major OEMs to enter their domestic markets. For instance,

  • China mandated TPMS in vehicles from 2019. The country is also considering mandating automatic emergency braking during the forecast period.
  • The Ministry for Road Transport and Highways (India) planned to adopt automotive power electronics features by 2022.

Moreover, the region is home to leading semiconductor suppliers and Tier-1 manufacturers. Hence, the adoption of electronic components in advanced vehicles, post-pandemic, is expected to drive the market growth over the forecast period.


Competitive Landscape

The automotive power electronics market is moderately consolidated, with major players dominating the market. Companies are focusing on expanding their product portfolio and are investing in R&D activities to develop advanced products. For instance,

  • In March 2020, Infineon Technologies launched new packages for its 80 V and 100 V MOSFETs with OptiMOS™ 5 technology to meet the different requirements of different 48 V applications.

Some of the major companies dominating the automotive power electronics market include NXP Semiconductors, Infineon Technologies AG, Texas Instruments Incorporated, Renesas Electronics Corporation, and STMicroelectronics.

Recent Developments

  • In September 2021, Infineon Technologies AG and Panasonic Corporation have signed an agreement for the joint development and production of the second generation (Gen2) of their proven gallium nitride (GaN) technology, offering higher efficiency and power density levels. 
  • In June 2021, STMicroelectronics launched STi2GaN solutions for auto applications. STi2GaN family combines a monolithic power stage along with drivers and protections in GaN technology as well as System-in-Package (SiP) solutions for application-specific ICs with additional processing and control circuitry.
  • In June 2021, NXP Semiconductors N.V. and TSMC announced the release of NXP’s S32G2 vehicle network processors and the S32R294 radar processor into volume production on TSMC’s advanced 16 nanometers (nm) FinFET process technology. This marks the migration of NXP’s S32 family of processors to increasingly advanced process nodes as automobiles continue to evolve into powerful computing platforms.
