Key Market Trends

Increasing Adoption of Electric Vehicles May Drive the Market

The electric vehicle demand is growing rapidly due to the need for addressing future energy requirements. The need to attain sustainable transportation plays a significant role in driving electric vehicles’ demand. The EV market is coming up as an integral part of the automotive industry and represents a pathway toward achieving energy efficiency, along with reduced emission of pollutants and other greenhouse gasses.

Increasing environmental concerns, coupled with favorable government initiatives, are some of the major factors driving the market growth. Rising energy cost and competition among emerging energy-efficiency technologies are also expected to fuel the market growth. Sales of new electric cars globally breached the 1 million mark in 2017. This was an increase of about 54% compared to 2016. In 2018, the industry breached the 2 million sales mark. Sales of internal combustion engine (ICE) have saturated in some countries, such as Norway, where electric vehicles are being purchased by customers at a higher rate compared to ICE ones.

Due to this paradigm shift in the field of mobility, even companies are researching, developing, and producing power modules for electric vehicles. Infineon Technologies AG, Fuji Electric, Mitsubishi Electric, and Danfoss Group are some of the companies actively developing related products and that are expected to revamp their product portfolios over the years. This is expected to help the market grow over the forecast period.

Growing Production and Imports of Power Modules Majorly in Asia-Pacific

The increasing emission standards across the world are likely to drive more electric vehicle sales during the forecast period. Thus, to meet the growing demand for EVs, the manufacturers of automotive power modules have started investing in extending their production capacity, majorly in Asia-Pacific, owing to its highest sales and large exports of vehicles across the world, as well as non-tariff on EV parts among ASEAN countries.

The production of automotive power modules is likely to be carried out majorly in Japan and China during the forecast period. For instance, Imasen Electric Industrial Co. Ltd, a Japan-based company, planned to start the production of electric control units for the battery management system of automotive lithium-ion batteries at its Hiroshima Plant in 2018.

The imports of automotive power modules across the ASEAN countries are likely to rise during the forecast period, due to the free trade agreement between ASEAN and China, as well as non-tariff barrier measures in ASEAN countries. For instance, in Thailand, the Board of Investment (BOI) approved promotional privileges for electric vehicles in 2017, including tax holidays of 5-8 years. The promotion includes cars, pickup trucks, and buses, with different rates of privileges based on production technology. The BOI also agreed to add 10 more important EV parts that will offer corporate income tax exemption for 8 years. The EV parts include batteries, traction motors, DC-DC converters, inverters, battery management services, electric circuit breakers, portable electric vehicle chargers, and EV smart charging systems. The above non-tariff barrier measures in Thailand are likely to drive EV parts imports from China, majorly in the light of the ASEAN-China free trade agreement.

Competitive Landscape

The automotive power modules market is majorly led by Continental AG, Robert Bosch GmbH, Denso Corporation, Hitachi Automotive Systems Ltd, and Mitsubishi Electric Corporation, among others.

The companies are expanding their presence in the market by engaging in mergers and acquisitions and opening new plants for sufficing the power module demand. For instance-

  • In 2019, Mitsubishi Electric Corporation announced that it would acquire the remaining shares of ICONICS Inc., a US-based software company. ICONICS Inc. is focused on analytics, mobile, IoT, and cloud software products for the industrial, manufacturing, and building-automation markets. The acquisition will make the company a 100% subsidiary of the Mitsubishi Electric Group.
  • In March 2019, Knorr-Bremse AG, German manufacturer of braking systems, successfully completed the acquisition of the commercial vehicle steering business of Japan-based Hitachi Automotive Systems Ltd.
  • In August 2018, FCA announced that its Toledo Machining Plant in Ohio will build automotive power modules, such as power inverters and integrated dual chargers, which consist of the on-board charger and DC-DC converter, for Jeep Wrangler PHEV, launching in 2020. The Jeep Wrangler PHEV will consist of more than 30 vehicle models offered by FCA, with electrified solutions, by 2022.
