Overview of the global automotive launch control system market

According to Technavio’s analyst, the global automotive launch control system market is anticipated to grow at a steady rate and post a CAGR of close to 5% during the forecast period. The growing demand for superior performance using launch control systems will drive the growth prospects for the global automotive launch control system market until the end of 2021.  An automotive launch control systems is a performance-enhancing system, which offers a high advantage over competitors in racing and motorsport events. Manufacturers have come up with a large number of launch control systems or interfaces that work on the principle of creating a misfire within any one of the engine’s cylinders. As a result, launch revolutions per minute (rpm) built in the vehicle due to the increased velocity and pressure of the mixture inside the cylinder helps the car to launch with greater levels of power and enable the driver to hold the vehicle at full throttle or permissible torque to launch the vehicle.

The integration of launch control system with manually operated gearbox will drive the growth prospects for the global automotive launch control system market for the next four years. According to the industry research report, the penetration rate of launch control systems is growing with the increasing trend of cars such as Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, Porsche Panamera Turbo, Nissan GTR, and Audi TT RS being equipped with dual shift gearbox (DSG). The main objective of integrating both the systems is to achieve the highest acceleration and protection of the car’s drivetrain parts and components during the launch of the vehicle.

    Overview of the global electric vehicle power inverter market

    Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global electric vehicle power inverter market to grow steadily at a CAGR of around 8% by 2021. One of the primary drivers for this market is the rise in demand for an improved driving range of electric vehicles (EVs). The range and emission levels in EVs depend on their electronic powertrain control systems. Inverters pose a major role in controlling the electronic powertrain. During acceleration, the controller sends a signal to the inverter, to convert the DC from the battery to AC for the electric motor, as needed. The amount of power needed is sensed while actuating the accelerator pedal by the user. However, more energy from the battery is taken to the inverter considering switching losses and thermal efficiency of electronic units in the electric drive system. Moreover, as the components are packed closely and tightly, switching losses will be reduced to an extent. This enhances the output AC from the inverter, controlling the motor, and increasing the discharge time. These changes improve the range of EVs, which will drive more people to adapt with these high-end power modules, this, in turn, will augment growth in the global electric vehicle power inverter market during the forecast period.

    One of the latest trends gaining traction in this market is the rise in the adoption of advanced semiconductor materials like SiC and GaN. Increasing demand for improved range and cost reduction of EVs will push the size reduction of power inverters and thereby increasing its overall efficiency. These goals

    Overview of the global high-performance electric vehicle (HPEV) market

    Technavio’s market research analysts predict the global high-performance electric vehicle (HPEV) market to grow steadily at a CAGR of almost 38% by 2021. One of the key factors responsible for the growth of this market is the stringent regulations on emissions and fuel efficiency. The development and adoption of green vehicles are considered as major solutions to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) levels in the atmosphere to an acceptable level. These vehicles run on alternative sources of energy such as only electricity, hybrid energy, and other power sources such as solar, wind energy, or biofuels. In an attempt to control global warming, countries around the world are coming up with stringent emission norms to curb the levels of GHG emissions from vehicles. For instance, the European Union regulations, known as Euro norms, have set emission standards and fuel consumption levels that new vehicles being launched must meet. Currently, the Euro 6 norms that are effective have been in place since 2014. Such norms by governments across the globe have made it is compulsory for automakers to comply with this stringent emission and fuel consumption regulations, automakers are compelled to develop zero emission vehicles (ZEVs) or nearly zero emission vehicles, this, in turn, will propel the growth of the HPEV market during the forecast period.

    One of the latest trends gaining traction in this market is the development of fuel cell vehicle (FCV) technology for range extension in HPEVs. Instead of an engine, this variant uses a fuel cell to extend the range of battery by charging through an electric vehicle motor.
