Automotive Micro-controllers Market: to exceed 1,500 Mn by 2022 at a CAGR of 13.7% over the forecast period.

Market Snapshot:

Micro-controller is type of processor on a single integrated circuit comprising of processor, memory and input/output peripherals. Automotive microcontrollers refer to integrated chip controlling automobile functioning. The growth in the automotive microcontrollers market is largely driven by the increase in number of automated vehicles, and consumer demand for safety features, entertainment systems and other convenient features. The advent of automated electronic technologies for automotive systems such as Electronic Control Unit (ECU), Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) is further going to spur the growth of the market.

However, the growth of the automotive micro-controllers market is limited due to high cost of electric vehicles, and malfunctioning of microcontroller in extreme conditions such as extremely high and low temperature.

The revenues from global automotive controllers market are estimated to exceed 1,500 Mn by 2022 at a CAGR of 13.7% over the forecast period.
