The market growth is pushed by rise in demand for electric & hybrid electric vehicles and need for advanced driver assistance characteristics”

Power steering system would be the most adopted technology throughout the forecast period

Power steering system was the leading segment, accounting for 21.1% share of the total market and generating a revenue of $7.13 billion in 2016. It is anticipated to maintain its dominance throughout the forecast period. However, engine management system market is anticipated to witness the highest growth rate of 7.6% in the near future as a result of ever growing demand of energy efficient vehicle systems. This because the automotive electronic control unit controls a series of actuators on an internal combustion engine in order to ensure optimal engine performance. The fuel injection system has the major role to control the engine's fuel supply. AECU determines the amount of fuel to inject based on a number of sensor readings. AECU also helps in determining whether the engine is running rich or running lean as compared to ideal conditions.

 Passenger car segment generated the highest revenue of $18.13 billion in 2016 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.3% during forecast

Passenger Cars lead the global automotive electronic control unit market in 2016 holding more than 50% market share. This is because of the increased requirement of commercial vehicles in the developed and developing economies around the globe. However, commercial vehicle AECU market is expected to witness the highest CAGR of 7.6% during the forecast period. This is because, global market for heavy commercial vehicles has been constantly expanding and is expected to continue the same pattern. In 2016, approx. 3 million trucks were sold worldwide.

 Asia-Pacific region is anticipated to grow with the fastest pace during the forecast period

Asia-Pacific is projected to show the highest growth rate, registering a CAGR of 7.7% from 2016 to 2024.
