An automotive electronic control unit, also known as brain of an automobile, is an embedded system responsible for monitoring and control of electrical and electronic subsystem in an automobile. The automotive industry has expanded significantly during past decade and has witnessed continuous advancement in vehicle control technology. With emergence of automotive electronic control units, the automotive industry has witnessed increased competition across the globe. Electronic control unit is used to control the sub-systems in an automobile for improved performance, enhanced safety and reduced carbon emissions. An automobile consists of different electronic control units such as engine control module (ECM), transmission control module (TCM), powertrain control module (PCM), central control module (CCM), brake control module (BCM or EBCM), central timing module (CTM), body control module (BCM), general electronic module (gem), suspension control module (SCM) and so on. Depending on the electronic system architecture of an automobile, an automobile may consist of single electronic control unit to monitor and control all the sub-systems or dedicated electronic control units for all the essential sub-systems. To achieve high operational efficiency, automotive manufacturers are focusing on deployment of dedicated electronic control unit to control and monitor individual sub-system. This is anticipated to bolster the growth of the global automotive electronic control unit market. However, due to disruption in automotive supply chain and production activities across the globe amidst the COVOD-19 pandemic, the global automotive electronic control unit market is anticipated to witness reduced demand during coming years.
