    Automotive Electronic Systems Growth Strongest Through 2021

    IC Market Drivers 2018 report ranks major end-use applications and their impact on IC market growth

    Automotive electronic system sales are forecast to rise by a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.4% from 2016 through 2021, which is the highest among six major end-use system categories (Figure 1), according to data presented in the 2018 edition of the IC Insights’ IC Market Drivers—A Study of Key System Applications Fueling Demand for Integrated Circuits that will be released later this year.


    Figure 1

    Demand is rising for electronic systems in new cars with increasing attention focused on self-driving (autonomous) vehicles, vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communications, as well as on-board safety, convenience, and environmental features, and growing interest in electric vehicles. Automotive electronics is growing as technology becomes more widely available on mid-range and entry-level cars and as consumers purchase technology-based aftermarket products. For semiconductor suppliers, this is good news as analog ICs, MCUs, and a great number of sensors are required for many of these automotive systems.

    The automotive segment is expected to account for an estimated 9.1% of the $1.49 trillion total worldwide electronic systems market in 2017 (Figure 2), a slight increase from 8.9% in 2015, and 9.0% in 2016. Automotive’s share of global electronic system production has increased only incrementally through the years, and is forecast to show only marginal gains as a percent of total electronic systems market through 2021, when automotive electronics are forecast to account for 9.8% of global electronic systems sales. Though many electronics systems are being added in new vehicles, IC Insights believes pricing pressures on both ICs and electronic systems will keep the automotive end-use application from accounting for much more than its current share of total electronic systems through the forecast period.

    Other electronic system and IC market highlights from the 2018 IC Market Drivers Report include the following.


    • The automotive segment is forecast to be the fastest growing electronic system market through 2021. This is good news for the total automotive IC market, which is forecast to surge 22% in 2017 and 16% in 2018.

    • Industrial electronic systems are forecast to enjoy the second-fastest growth rate (4.6%) through 2021 as robotics, wearable health devices, and systems promoting the Internet of Things help drive growth in this segment. Analog ICs are forecast to hold 45% of the industrial IC market in 2017.

    • The 2016-2021 communication systems CAGR is projected to be 4.2% as global sales of smartphones and other mobile devices reach saturation. Asia-Pacific is forecast to show the strongest regional growth of communication systems and account for 69% of the total communications IC market in 2017.

    • The consumer electronic systems market is forecast to display a CAGR of 2.8% through 2021. The logic segment is forecast to be the largest consumer IC market throughout the forecast. In total, the consumer IC market is expected to register a 2.4% CAGR across the 2016-2021 time period.

    • Flat or marginal demand for personal computing devices (desktops, notebooks, tablets) is expected to result in the computer systems market showing the weakest CAGR through 2021. The total computer IC market is forecast to increase 25% in 2017 driven by much higher average selling prices for computer DRAM and NAND flash memory.Report Details: IC Market Drivers 2018

    IC Market Drivers 2018—A Study of Key System Applications Fueling Demand for Integrated Circuits examines several of the largest existing and potential new applications that are expected to help fuel the market for ICs through 2021.

    IC Market Drivers is divided into two parts. Part 1 provides a detailed forecast of the IC industry by system type, by region, and by IC product type through 2021. In Part 2, the IC Market Drivers report examines and evaluates key existing and emerging end-use applications that will support and propel the IC industry through 2021, including the automotive market, smartphones, Internet of Things, computing (including desktop, notebooks, tablets), and wearable electronics. The 2018 IC Market Drivers report is priced at $3,690 for an individual-user license and $6,790 for a multi-user corporate license.

    Much of the automotive technology has numerous other uses with just minor programing changes, just like technologies designed mainly for other products are being used in transportation. The more uses a product or program can have, the lower the cost and the longer the life for a technology with widespread use usually has a longer life with more upgrade cycles. The bigger the market or markets in this case the more talent and innovation it will attract. We have entered a world that is adapting advanced technology to everything and we are still in the early days of this evolution. Never underestimate the power of the special interests representing the past to slow things down, not only for their own benefit, but many are unable or unwilling to adapt.
