NEW YORK, Jan. 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- An engine management system (EMS) is a unit that comprises of a set of sensors and an engine control unit (ECU). The sensors relay data to the ECU, which process the feedback and further send an output to the actuators and motors for performing the final task. There has been a constant evolution of the engine management system, from the use of limited number of sensors and an 8-bit microcontroller in ECU, to a vast range of sensors and 32-bit microcontroller used in the ECU. These systems have minimum feedback time and are more efficient than the older versions. There have been various factors which have led to this evolution, including the need for improved fuel economy, greater power requirements, increasing vehicle performance requirements, and enhanced driving experience.
This has resulted in the development and launching of new and advanced engine management systems such as the latest 32-bit Tricore microcontroller launched by a leading semiconductor company. To meet the growing need for fuel economy across the globe, and to follow the stringent emission norms in major regions, automakers are investing heavily in R&D of advanced EMS, which has led to a growth in the EMS market.
Factors driving the growth in the market for automotive EMS including rising demand for low carbon footprint technologies, enhanced driving experience (in terms of faster response time), and increased fuel efficiency provided by these systems. However, high cost of advanced engine management system due to complexity in programming of its functions is a key factor restraining its growth.
In this report, the automotive EMS market covers gasoline and diesel EMS, which is further sub-segmented on the basis of components such as ECU, pressure sensors, temperature sensors, position/level sensors, O2/NOx sensors, speed sensors, and knock sensor. The automotive EMS market is segmented in terms of region into Asia-Oceania, North America, Europe, and the Rest of the World (RoW); and vehicle type into passenger cars, light commercial vehicles (LCVs), and heavy commercial vehicles (HCVs).
The gasoline EMS segment accounted for the largest share in terms of both volume and value in the automotive EMS market in 2013, followed by diesel EMS. In terms of value, it is projected that the market for ECU and speed sensors would grow at a higher CAGR between 2014 and 2019.
In the North American region, the U.S. accounted for the largest share, in terms of value of the automotive EMS market, in 2013. However, in the future, developing regions such as Asia-Oceania (China, South Korea, and India) are projected to form new revenue-generating pockets for market players. Economic development, large population in the region, improving emission regulations, rising awareness about eco-friendly systems, and benefits of better fuel efficiency are the key factors driving growth in the automotive EMS market in Asia-Oceania.
The global automotive EMS market is marked with intense competition owing to the presence of a large number of both, large- and small-scale firms. New product launches, R&D activities, and collaborations are the key strategies adopted by market players to ensure growth in the market. The market is dominated by players such as Robert Bosch GmbH (Germany), Continental AG (Germany), Hitachi Ltd. (Japan), Delphi Automotive plc (U.K.), and Denso Corporation (Japan).
