Steady growth of semiconductors used in body and convenience applications
An increase in attachment rate of body and convenience applications such as keyless entry, automatic air-conditioning, power seat, power window, and LED lighting systems is accounting for a firm growth of semiconductor content in a car.
The overall semiconductor revenue for body and convenience applications has grown by 10% in 2018 but it is estimated to decrease by 3% in 2019. Lighting systems are accounting for a sharp growth of optical semiconductors. LEDs grew by 17% in 2018 and are expected to continue boosting the revenue of lighting applications, especially headlamps.
This tracker examines the semiconductor market by ECU type in six body electronics application domains: central body control, LED lighting, keyless entry, HVAC, power, and other systems.
