Global Information Inc. would like to present a new market research report, "2010 Automotive Powertrain and Body Electronics Semiconductors" by Databeans, Inc..
Automotive semiconductor products are found across multiple systems, including Safety Systems, Infotainment, Powertrain and Body Electronics, and more, such as in the cockpit electronics sold in the Aftermarket segment. According to the most recent statistics, the total value of an automobiles electronic products accounts for roughly 25 percent of its total retail cost, and, in luxury cars, this number approaches 30 percent of the total cost. Each year, electronics value per unit continues to grow, and it is expected that the value content of electronic products in a number of luxury cars may soon reach half of the cars total cost.
Overall, growth in the automotive semiconductor market is directly linked to growth in light-vehicle production. With the global financial crisis leading to a significant decline in vehicle production 2009, the sales of semiconductors used in these designs likewise suffered one of its worst declines on record. However, the total automotive semiconductor segment will see a considerable bounce back of 32 percent from 2009 to almost $22 billion in 2010 global revenue. The largest segment by sales is Powertrain and Body Electronics, accounting for $9.3 billion, or 43 percent of total automotive semiconductor market share.
Databeans expects the automotive powertrain and body semiconductor market will reach $9.34 billion in 2010 sales. Sales are expected to experience average annual growth of 8 percent over the next five years. Meanwhile, ASPs will hover at $0.23 in 2010, declining slightly over the next five years.
