APAC: largest automotive IC market
The economic growth of emerging countries in the region such as China and India are attracting global automobile manufacturers to this region. Global players are investing significantly in the production and R&D of new technologies and are contributing to the growth of the market. Japan, China, and India are the key countries in APAC that are leading the market in terms of vehicle demand. The major IC manufacturers in APAC are Alcon Electronics and Xiamen Sanan Integrated Circuits.
According to Ganesh Subramanian, a lead analyst at Technavio for research on automotive electronics, “OEMs are attracted to the market in APAC because they present a huge growth potential. Some OEMs have also established their foundries in the region to mark a long-term presence. APAC will continue to be crucial to all OEM suppliers because the maximum production volume growth will be in APAC during the forecast period. Establishing a supplier base in APAC gives OEMs significant cost benefits.”
Competitive vendor landscape
The global automotive IC market is highly fragmented. It has the presence of many established manufacturers and a significant number of small and medium-sized enterprises. The market is also characterized by the presence of well-diversified global and regional vendors. However, as global players expand their footprint, regional vendors are finding it difficult to compete on aspects such as quality, safety, and price. The competitive environment in this market is expected to intensify further due to an increase in the use of ICs arising from growing government regulations and consumer demand for safety and advanced features.
