From 2017 to 2022, the automotive ECU market is anticipated to grow at a 6.1% CAGR and reach US$ 48,500.0 million. By 2032, the market is anticipated to reach US$ 77,887.0 million.
An automobile’s electronic, electrical, and mechanical systems are all controlled and maintained by a family of computer systems known as an automotive ECU. Engine Control Modules (ECM), Body Control Modules (BCM), Electronic Brake Control Modules (EBCM), Powertrain Control Modules (PCM), Transmission Control Modules (PCM), Suspension Control Modules (SCM), Door Control Units (DCM), Battery Management Systems (BMS), General Electric Modules (GEM), and others are just a few examples of the different types of ECU that can be categorized based on their functions.
ECU systems are integrated into many automotive operations, from window movement to the amount of air-fuel mixture needed for each engine cylinder. These data are recorded, evaluated, and stored in the microcontroller. Complex ECUs are now being used in more vehicles because of technological breakthroughs in the automotive industry. More than 80 distinct ECUs can be found in some of the car types currently on the road.
Electronic and mechanical parts that work together to form an ECU system are typical. Perfecting their integration is a difficult task, which could impede the market expansion for ECUs.
