Automotive Semiconductor Market Restraints: 

The operating faults under extreme environmental circumstances, such as extreme cold and high heat, are the main limitation of the automotive semiconductor market. Failures happen when there is excessive heat present because semiconductors have a tendency to melt or crack, the resistance rises, and the signal becomes too weak. In contrast, resistance decreases and stability is achieved when it is adjusted to an ideal temperature. Additionally, extremely cold temperatures are not good for semiconductors since they stop working. It operates best at temperatures between -25°C and +150°C on average. Therefore, nations like Russia and Canada prefer using fewer chips. Due to this, consumers start using different electronic components, like microcontrollers and ICs, which has an impact on the market's expansion.

Automotive Semiconductor Market Drivers:

Due to strict emission regulations, such as favourable government subsidies and policies, the Kyoto Protocol, benefits on buying a hybrid electric vehicle and battery, and others, the demand for electric and hybrid vehicles is rising exponentially alongside that of vehicles with conventional internal combustion engines. For instance, the global sales of battery electric car batteries (processors) increased by 121% in 2021 compared to the year before, with China dominating the market with about three billion processors, up 172% from 2020.

Additionally, in 2021, the registration of new electric vehicles increased by 83%, 76%, and 62%, respectively, in Germany, the U.S., and the U.K. The global fleet of commercial and passenger ZEVs might total 677 billion vehicles by 2040, according to data from BloombergNEF. Furthermore, new data from BloombergNEF shows that global sales of plug-in hybrid and battery-electric vehicles reached 7.2% in 2021, up from 2.6% in 2019 and 4.3% in 2020. Businesses are actively engaged in the mass production of EVs. For instance, Ford, General Motors, and other automakers declared that by 2040, sales of entirely zero-emission vehicles will increase significantly.

As EVs require numerous controls and sensors to ensure effective engine performance, the demand for automotive semiconductors surged as a result. Substantial benefits can be realised with the expanded application of semiconductors. At the same time, the growing popularity of hybrid and battery electric vehicles, particularly in terms of powertrain electrification, necessitates the use of microcontrollers, ICs, and other semiconductor modules. When compared to conventional internal combustion engine vehicles, the manufacturing of hybrid and electric vehicles calls for a higher percentage of semiconductors.


The auto industry has been advancing steadily towards the innovative integration of electronics into vehicles to improve safety (radar and collision avoidance, automatic braking), infotainment (satellite radio and Bluetooth), navigation (GPS mapping), system monitoring, onboard computers, and many other areas, including the development of self-driving vehicles. The demand for electronic components has increased significantly as a result of this.

In comparison to traditional cars, electric and hybrid vehicles utilise more semiconductors. Application-specific integrated circuits, high-performance microcontrollers, power MOSFETs, microprocessors, and other parts are required for hybrid and electric vehicles. As a result, the industry has significant growth potential thanks to the growing electronic content in automobiles.

Automotive Semiconductor Market COVID 19 Analysis

The effect of COVID-19 has resulted in a drop in revenues for the value chain participants, including suppliers, tier 1 and tier 2 suppliers, manufacturers, and aftermarket businesses, among others. However, the major governments carefully investigated the issue to avoid the enormous impact that was anticipated for the whole auto sector. To further prevent the spread of COVID-19, numerous regional governments and businesses enacted strict rules and other safety standards. The lockout has altered the outlook for the whole automotive semiconductor sector.

However, in 2021, the automotive sector recovered more quickly than anticipated due to rising consumer demand for new cars. The lack of automotive semiconductor chips, disruptions to the supply chain, and production delays brought about by shortages, however, resulted in a significant loss of income for semiconductor producers.
