Automotive semiconductors were mostly used in niche markets like high-end luxury cars in the early days and have penetrated into the low-end markets at a faster pace in recent years. As high-end configurations become standard ones, such as reversing camera, automatic emergency call system, and ubiquitous driver assistance system, automotive semiconductor production has increased, with global automotive semiconductor market size reaching USD29.2 billion in 2015, up 4.3% from a year ago. Being more intelligent, the automobile has higher requirements on active safety, communication & navigation, vision technology, recognition technology, infotainment, comfort, and environmental friendliness, thus creating a huger demand for automotive semiconductors applied for safety control, on-board electronics and so forth. It is expected that the world’s automotive semiconductors will be worth USD 37 billion in 2020, a CAGR of 4.8% compared with 2015.
As the world’s largest automobile producer and consumer market, China has seen a ballooning automotive semiconductor market, thanks to booming semiconductor and automobile industries. Chinese automotive semiconductor market size was USD4.622 billion in 2015, sharing 15.8% of the global market, and is expected to hit USD8.011 billion in 2020, representing a CAGR of 11.6% during 2015-2020.
Automotive semiconductors can be divided into five categories: Power semiconductors, Sensors, Processors (Main for MCU), ASSP (mainly Connectivity and Amplifier), and Logic and others. In a conventional vehicle, semiconductors cost about USD320 with Power ones making up 26% and Sensors 16%; in a HEV, semiconductors cost USD690 or so with Power ones accounting for up to 75%; in an EV, semiconductors cost roughly USD700 with Power ones occupying 55%.
Globally, safety system, powertrain, automotive audio & video, chassis system, and body electronics are main application fields with a market size of USD4.9 billion, USD4.8 billion, USD5.2 billion, USD4.5 billion, and USD4.4 billion in 2015, respectively, seizing 16.8%, 16.4%, 17.8%, 15.4%, and 15.1% (81.5% in total) of automotive semiconductor market size.
Regarding competitive landscape, global automotive semiconductor industry is less concentrated with top5 automotive semiconductor companies (NXP, Infineon, Renesas, STMicroelectronics, and Texas Instruments) acquiring a combined 49.6% market share in 2015. NXP, with a 14.2% market share, finds a leading edge in automotive audio& video system and ADAS and some advantage in processor market after the acquisition of Freescale; Infineon, with an about 10.4% market share, is competitive in the fields of automotive sensor (#2), microcontroller (#3), and power semiconductor (#1); Renesas, with a 10.3% market share, enjoys a leadership in processor field; STMicroelectronics, with a 7.7% market share, is to some extent advantageous in segments like power semiconductor, short-range radar, and vision processing; Texas Instruments, with a 7.0% market share, focuses on industrial fields and doesn’t stand out in automotive field although with a more complete product line.
