Connected navigation systems as well as telematic systems involve embedded software in order to administer numerous services such as HMI technologies, website access and communication management. For instance, BMW introduces ConnectedDrive which offers several applications to the iDrive multimedia systems. In addition, it restricts hardware development and new systems, thus offering potentail opportunities to the current infotainment systems. Moreover, safety and security by predictive and remote diagnostics, remote failure diagnostics, access control, active driver assistance systems and tacking are also provided by the system. The above mentioned factors are likely to positively contribute to the industry growth over the forecast period. China automotive ECU market size was valued over USD 5.35 billion in 2015, and is likely to reach USD 10 billion by 2023.

Proliferation of electric vehicles owing to adoption of energy efficient vehicles is likely to surge the demand growth. Environmental trends have positively impact the powertrain segment owing to mounting ECU completion in electric vehicles. Increasing demand for electronic components is anticipated to offer better fuel efficiency as well as emissions. Rising consciousness among consumers towards green technologies such as eco-driver assist systems has secured a key role in numerous drive-assist products in automotive sector. High adoption rate of EVs is anticipated to minimize CO2 emissions from transportation and also reduces the dependency on fossil fuels, which in turn is likely to surge industry growth.

Rising complex functionality in systems to control the communication options is likely to hinder demand growth. Numerous complexities include tolerance stack-up and hardware or software. Prioritization of advancement between hardware and software architectures within ECU is posing a major challenge to Tier 1 suppliers and manufacturers. In addition, low-flexibility for re-design through development has also increased the complexity of MCUs per ECU.
