Research and Markets: Global Automotive Electric and Electronic Systems Report 2013-2020

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/gwx5kb/the_automotive) has announced the addition of the "Global Automotive Electric and Electronic Systems Report 2013-2020" report to their offering.

The global market for automotive electronics is set to rise to $240 billion in 2020, up more than 50% from $157 billion in 2010, driven to new levels of prominence by regulatory and OEM safety initiatives.

The massive growth of automotive electronics in the space of a decade reflects the field's rising importance to the car industry at large, especially as OEMs ratify in-vehicle electronics to be an essential selling feature for an automobile, said, Ben Scott, automotive analyst for IHS.

In automotive technology, since the first digital engine control modules were introduced in the 1980s, electronic content in vehicles has steadily increased. Today, a premium-class automobile contains around 100 million lines of software, running on 70 to 100 microprocessor-based electronic control units (ECUs) networked throughout. The electronics component value add is estimated today at around 40% for traditional cars and 75% for electric / hybrids. According to a recent study, 60% of new cars will be connected by 2017.

This report looks at the demands of the automotive industry on electronic systems, the challenges for the automotive industry with increasing need for electronics, hardware and sensors, and looks at the software and systems created in an automotive network design. The report also has over 35 profiles of prominent suppliers of automotive electric and electronic systems.
