APAC: largest automotive DCU market
China and India are expected to be the major contributors to the automotive DCU market in APAC during the forecast period. Both the countries are experiencing increased sales volume of automobiles. In addition, developed automotive economies, Japan and South Korea, are driving the automotive DCU market due to their regional market dynamics. The growth of automotive electronics in the region is the main factor resulting in the growth of the automotive DCU market. OEMs are shifting their manufacturing bases to Asia due to advantages such as low-cost labor and easy availability of raw material and gaining access to the APAC markets.
“With the increasing electronic content in vehicles and rising automobile sales in APAC, the demand for DCUs is expected to witness growth during the forecast period. Being the largest automotive market in the world in terms of volume, APAC has attracted all the major OEMs. As significant parts of the region are price sensitive, OEMs are forced to offer advanced features in mid-segment vehicles with a marginal increase in price to maintain market share,” says Keerthi Balu, a lead automotive electronics research expert from Technavio.
