Global Automotive Ethernet Market 2017-2021
Overview of the global automotive Ethernet market
The global automotive Ethernet market is anticipated to grow rapidly during the forecast period and in terms of volume, post a CAGR of close to 42% by 2021. The rise in demand for luxury vehicles will propel the growth prospects for the global automotive Ethernet market in the forthcoming years. One of the major factors responsible for the continual growth in the luxury vehicle market is the increasing population of high-net-worth individuals across the globe. Also, one of the major sectors that came forward to adopt new technology such as the Ethernet technology was the Luxury and premium vehicles sector. For instance, few luxury brands like BMW and Jaguar Land Rover have already implemented Ethernet in some of their models. Moreover, some of the advantages associated with the increasing adoption of the technology is the reduction in the overall cost of procurement and implementation of Ethernet and improvement in the profit margins of original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), which, in turn, encourages a number of OEMs to adopt this technology. Furthermore, it has been anticipated that Ethernet technology will play a significant role in the entry-level and mid-segment vehicles and mass produced segment as well.
The introduction of Power over Ethernet (PoE) will accelerate the growth prospects for the global automotive Ethernet market until the end of 2021. The market has witnessed a major shift from traditional networking devices towards Ethernet cables that reduce the cable volume by carrying power and data on the same cable and is known as Power over Ethernet (PoE). One of the major factors responsible for the growing demand of Ethernet is the ability to power the electronic control unit using data lines that result in the decreasing use of power conversion equipment in a vehicle.
