ELECTRONICS.CA PUBLICATIONS, the electronics industry market research and knowledge network, announces the availability of a new report entitled "Automotive Electronic Devices: Technologies and Global Markets".
The global market for automotive electronic devices was estimated to be worth $15.1 billion in 2010. At a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 2.9%, the automotive electronic devices market is expected to grow to $17.4 billion in 2015.
Gone are the days when a car was solely a mechanical machine. The proportion of electronic components used in motor vehicles has been increasing in recent years. Automakers are relying more heavily on electronics technology, with electronic components making up as much as 30% of the production cost.
The electronic components used in cars can roughly be split into two parts: control systems (e.g., power-train components and antilock brakes) and devices (e.g., car audio systems). This report focuses on devices, and is aimed at educating the reader from both market and technology perspectives.
These devices not only entertain the car driver and passengers but also provide enhanced safety and usability. As such, a large number of devices could fall into this category, but this research focuses on the following devices most commonly found in cars: Global Positioning System (GPS) devices, car audio, satellite radio, DVD players, radar detectors, and rearview cameras. For each device, the report provides the value offered and key technical considerations from both the hardware and software point of view. Market size and forecast of the total market in each category by dollar, volume, and geographic region during the next 5 years are included.
Each device market is further segmented where applicable, and the reader is provided with pertinent information. The report provides the reader with the market ecosystem for each device category and explains the trends shaping the future. Key players in each category are also discussed along with market share information.
Emerging technologies that define the future of automotive electronic devices are also discussed. The report also includes an analysis of patents filed in this marketplace by various companies.RESEARCH BACKGROUND
