ADAS & Electric Vehicles accelerate demand of automotive electronic control units
The rise in ECU usage reflects the broader trend of increasing amounts of electronics in each new vehicle
Electronic control units (ECUs) are playing an increasingly critical role in the automotive industry, driving the development of safer, smarter, cleaner and better-connected cars. As a result, global automotive ECU revenue is expected to soar to $211 billion in 2030, rising at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5 percent from $122 billion in 2018, according to IHS Markit forecasts. This robust expansion follows a strong year in 2018, when revenue rose 6.9 percent from $114 billion in 2017.
