Overview of the global electric vehicle ECU market

The adoption of vehicles among daily commuters or long-distance travellers is increasing across the globe. This will boost the production rate of vehicles. However, governments are implementing regulations on both producers and consumers to control the emissions from these vehicles, which are hazardous to the environment. This resulted in an increased demand for efficient vehicles like electric vehicles. Technavio's market research report has identified the rising number of government policies will be one of the primary growth drivers for the global electric vehicle electronic control unit (ECU) market till 2021. In addition, governments are coming up with awareness initiatives and incentives to encourage the adoption of these vehicles. Our market research analysts have predicted that the electric vehicle ECU market will grow at a CAGR of more than 46% by 2021.

The increased installation of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) features in automobiles is driving the adoption of electronic components in cars. The trend for connected ECU car technologies and the integration of in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) have further driven the need for electronics hardware and software in these automobiles. The software in these automobiles must frequently be updated. As a result, the need for over-the-air (OTA) updates for electronic control module is identified as one of the key trends that will stimulate growth in the electric vehicle ECU market in the forthcoming years.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The vendors in the electric vehicle ECU market are focusing on the development of ECUs that are based on the specifications of the EV. The declining prices of ECUs will strengthen the competitive environment among existing players. ECU automotive manufacturers of the automotive electronic control unit (ECU) market are experiencing growth opportunities in the EV ECU manufacturing sector.

Key vendors in this market are -

  • Delphi
  • Continental
  • Pektron
  • Hitachi Automotive

Other prominent vendors in the market include Mitsubishi Electric, Aradex, MAHLE, Bosch, Sigra Technologies, Keihin Corporation, Metric Mind, Fuji Electric, EVS, Fujitsu, and Minda Corporation.

Segmentation by EV type and analysis of the electric vehicle ECU market

  • Hybrid electric vehicles (HEV)
  • Plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHEV)
  • Battery electric vehicles (BEV)

The HEV segment comprises of a battery management system (BMS) for the electrical drive and an engine management system (EMS) for the internal combustion engine (ICE). HEVs can be categorized into mild HEVs and full HEVs. The electric vehicle ECU market is expected to witness growth in the HEV segment in the forthcoming years due to the rising sales volume of Lexus and Toyota Prius models, launched by Toyota.

Segmentation by geography and analysis of the electric vehicle ECU market

  • Americas
  • APAC
  • EMEA

The purchase volume of EVs is high in APAC due to the rising focus on the promotion of eco-friendly transport alternatives by governmental bodies and private sector companies. This in turn, is driving the demand for alternate energy vehicles like BEVs and hybrid vehicles. The rising awareness of hybrid vehicles will positively influence the automotive electronic control unit (ECU) market in the APAC region during the predicted period.
