Automotive Chip Market: Key Drivers, Trends, and Challenges

The increasing adoption of the engine control unit in vehicles is notably driving the automotive chip market growth, although factors such as expensive and complex technology may impede the market growth. Our research analysts have studied the historical data and deduced the key market drivers and the COVID-19 pandemic impact on the automotive chip industry. The holistic analysis of the drivers will help in deducing end goals and refining marketing strategies to gain a competitive edge.

Key Automotive Chip Market Driver

The increasing adoption of engine control unit in vehicles is one of the key drivers supporting the automotive chip market growth. The electronic control unit is basically a set of computer systems that controls and maintains the entire electronics, electrical, and mechanical systems of a vehicle. Increasing demand for alternative vehicle choices and governments? strict policy regulations on pollution control norms are transforming the powertrain technology of vehicles rapidly. The growing adoption of connected vehicle technology and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) is also another factor driving the demand for electronics in vehicles. It is expected that hybrid and pure electric vehicles and ADAS alone would contribute to over 45% of electronics in the car by 2030. Thus, the growing adoption of ECUs will fuel the demand for automotive chips during the forecast period.

Key Automotive Chip Market Trend

The development of autonomous vehicles is another factor supporting the automotive chip market growth. These cars are equipped with several wired and wireless communication protocols and many semiconductor devices. For instance, in July 2021, Waymo, the autonomous vehicle company of Alphabet Inc., announced its plan to invest around $2.5 billion in the development of its autonomous driving technology. Similarly, in April 2021, Nvidia Corp. launched Drive Atlan, an AI-enabled system-on-chip platform for autonomous vehicles. The chip combines a central processing unit (CPU), a graphics processing unit (GPU), and a data processing unit (DPU) on it that utilizes deep learning, machine vision accelerators, and Ampere-Next GPU resources to deliver 1,000 trillion operations per second (TOPS). Such instances will drive market growth during the forecast period.

Key Automotive Chip Market Challenge

The expensive and complex technology are some of the factors hindering the automotive chip market growth. Prices of semiconductor chips have been increasing since the last quarter of 2020 amid a global supply crunch. For instance, in September 2021, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) announced its intention to increase the prices of most advanced chips by roughly 10%; less advanced chips would cost about 20% more. Thus, consumers would be paying more for chips from 2022 as foundries are increasing the prices of semiconductor chips by 20%. The prices of chips are expected to rise due to shortages in production capacity in comparison to their demand. Thus, the increasing prices of automotive chips will increase the net cost of automobiles. These issues and procedural complexities discourage chipset vendors from manufacturing chipsets, which poses a challenge to the market.

This automotive chip market analysis report also provides detailed information on other upcoming trends and challenges that will have a far-reaching effect on the market growth. The actionable insights on the trends and challenges will help companies evaluate and develop growth strategies for 2021-2025.
