The growing number of cyber threats hampers the Automotive Microcontrollers (MCU) market growth

PUNE, India, May 25, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Exactitude Consultancy, the market research and consulting wing of Ameliorate Digital Consultancy Private Limited has completed and published the final copy of the detailed research report on the Automotive Microcontrollers (MCU) Market.


The global Automotive Microcontrollers (MCU) market is expected to grow at 7.9 % CAGR from 2020 to 2029. It is expected to reach above USD 27.71 billion by 2029 from USD 10.31 billion in 2020.

Automotive Microcontrollers (MCU) are specialized microcontrollers designed to be used in automotive applications. They are responsible for controlling various functions in a vehicle, such as an engine management, transmission control, powertrain control, and safety systems like airbags and anti-lock braking systems (ABS). These microcontrollers are designed to be highly reliable and robust, with features like high-temperature tolerance, high electromagnetic interference (EMI) and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) resistance, and high vibration resistance. They are also designed to be low-power and highly efficient, making them suitable for use in battery-powered systems like electric and hybrid vehicles. These are used for general applications and can be programmed to perform a variety of functions.

The demand side growth is ascribed to the growing modernization of the vehicle accelerates the installation rate of microcontrollers and the growing demand for safety features. Another important factor contributing to the growth is the increasing demand for advanced safety, convenience, and comfort systems that drives the Automotive Microcontrollers (MCU) market growth.

Market Dynamics


Increasing expansions in the automotive industry drive the Automotive Microcontrollers (MCU) market growth.

The automotive industry is rapidly evolving, with the development of electric and autonomous vehicles and the integration of advanced features such as advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) and infotainment systems. All of these developments require advanced microcontrollers that can handle the increasing complexity and performance demands of modern vehicles. Moreover, the increasing global demand for automobiles is also driving the growth of the Automotive Microcontrollers (MCU) market. Additionally, the development of advanced manufacturing processes such as 3D printing and nanotechnology is also contributing to the growth of the Automotive Microcontrollers (MCU) market. These processes enable manufacturers to produce microcontrollers with higher precision and efficiency, which can help reduce costs and improve performance.


The use of microcontrollers in modern vehicles has increased the risk of cyberattacks, as these devices are vulnerable to hacking and other types of security breaches. The potential consequences of a cyberattack on a vehicle can be severe, including loss of control, theft of personal information, or even physical harm. As a result, manufacturers of Automotive Microcontrollers (MCU) are under pressure to ensure that their products are secure and protected against cyber threats. Moreover, the automotive industry is also facing regulatory pressure to improve cybersecurity measures. For example, in the United States, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has issued guidelines for the cybersecurity of motor vehicles. Compliance with these guidelines can be a costly and time-consuming process, which can also slow down the growth of the Automotive Microcontrollers (MCU) market.

Competitive landscape and companies covered in the global Automotive Microcontrollers (MCU) report:

Some of the major players in this industry have taken a leadership position while trying to establish their market through innovative marketing strategies.
