Market Overview

Global market of automotive semiconductors in 2018 is estimated as 31,090 million dollars, increased by 6.0% from the preceding year. 
Analog IC, used for electronic circuits like ECU (Electronic Control Unit), represents a large part of the automotive semiconductor market, followed by MCU (Micro Control Unit), sensors, power semiconductors, and memory IC. Since new car sales in 2019 recorded a negative growth, slow down in the growth of MCU and analog IC is anticipated. Meanwhile, stable growth is expected for sensors, power semiconductors, and memory IC, for being led by the demands for ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) and xEV. Therefore, the global market of automotive semiconductors expects to attain 31,410 million dollars in 2019, up 1.0% from the previous year.

Noteworthy Topics

Increase in Demand for Automotive Power Semiconductors

Due to the increase in the number of motors installed per vehicle, demand for power semiconductor is expanding. The rise in demand is mainly for power semiconductors of withstand voltage below 200V(semiconductor diodes and MOSFET). In addition to the motor controller applications, demands for LED lights, 48V systems, electric pumps, and sensors for ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance System)/AD(Autonomous Driving) are boosting the entire market of automotive semiconductors.

Future Outlook

Global market of automotive semiconductors is projected to reach 43,770 million dollars by 2025, 58,610 million dollars by 2030.
ADAS/AD, xEV, and connected cars are the three fields expected to boost demands for automotive semiconductors for 2030, driving the growth of automotive sensors, power semiconductors, and memory IC. For automotive sensors, in particular, units of CMOS image sensors for driver assistance cameras and transmission chips for radars are expected to rise.  As to the power semiconductors, installations of the power semiconductors using SiC (silicon carbide) is forecasted to move forward in full scale from 2026 on.

Global Automotive Semiconductor Market

Automotive semiconductors are the semiconductor devices employed as a controller for vehicle actuators (i.e. engines and brakes), such as micro control units (MCU), sensors, power semiconductors, memory IC and analog IC. Installed mainly in ECU (Electronic Control Unit), the controllers are used for various signal processing, motor control, and power conversion. In recent years, CMOS image sensors and transmission chips implemented on cameras and radars for ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) and power semiconductors applied for inverters of xEV (next generation vehicles) are attracting attention. 
In this research, the market size of automotive semiconductors is calculated based on the number of new car sales each year and on shipments at automotive semiconductor makers.
