Governments from several nations around the globe are initiating new schemes and funding activities to accelerate the adoption of electric vehicles and reduce CO2 emissions in the country. For example, in May 2020, the Government of France announced its incentive of USD 13,150 to buy electric vehicles. The new incentive plan is to reduce the price of battery electric vehicles by 40% and thereby fueling their adoption. These initiatives will further positively influence the automakers to accelerate their production of new EV models.

COVID-19 pandemic has severely affected the automotive industry, with the shutdown of various manufacturing facilities, disruption in supply chain, and international trade barriers. The declining demand from consumers has led several automakers to cut down their production capabilities for new vehicles.

However, in mid of 2021, majority of the automotive OEMs are planning to revamp their production facilities an increase their investments in automotive electronics market, EVs, and autonomous technologies to gain ahigh competitive edge in the market. Also, increasing government support for automotive OEMs to overcome disruptions in sales due to COVID-19 pandemic will further boost the market opportunities.

Increasing government regulations to reduce CO2 emissions in vehicles will drive market opportunities for powertrains

The powertrain segment held over 35% of the automotive electronics market share in 2020 and is projected to expand at around 7% CAGR through 2027. Increasing adoption of powertrain applications to control fuel consumption in vehicles is likely to drive the market revenue.

Increasing government regulations and programs toward clean energy to reduce CO2 emissions from vehicles will augment the market opportunities for powertrain solutions. For example, in January 2020, European Union announced the launch of a new regulation “Regulation (EU) 2019/631” to set CO2 emission performance for vans and new passenger vehicles. This will help to reduce 55% of greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 and manage climate neutral nation by 2050.

Increasing demand for fuel injection technologies in passenger and commercial vehicles to overcome fuel consumption and energy concern will increase the deployment of efficient powertrain solutions. Several automotive OEMs are increasing their development toward new powertrain solutions to comply with stringent regulations of low carbon emission, accelerating the market opportunities for automotive electronics.
