Market Lifecycle Stage
Globally connected vehicles are moving the automotive industry into a new era. Vehicles are being deployed with extensive sensor platforms that generate vast amounts of data from different systems, such as LIDAR, telematics control units, or OBD-II interfaces. At the same time, the advent of 5G and underlying low latency, high bandwidth V2X technology is enabling dozens of new automotive use cases.

The automotive power management IC market is in the growth phase. The implementation of power management ICs is increasing in electric vehicles. As a result, the market is expected to flourish in the forecast period.

The automotive power management IC market is driven by several factors, such as increasing production and sales of electric cars, growing implementation of 5G networks, and increasing demand for PMICs in advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).

Automobile producers increasingly see themselves as both service providers and producers of products. In addition to creating the next generation of connected and autonomous vehicles that will enhance traffic flow and safety, manufacturers are investing in a wide range of innovative mobility services.

Impact of COVID-19
COVID-19 caused disruptions in the supply chain of the semiconductor industry. It had short-term and long-term effects on the automotive power management IC market. The environment for semiconductor operations is quite complex. For assembly, testing, packing, and equipment, suppliers and partners around the world need a lot of raw materials. Increased use of the internet is benefiting the automotive power management IC market. Since the market is predominantly driven by expanding car sales and production, the influence of the COVID-19 pandemic on the automotive power management IC market was unavoidable. Due to the repeated lockdowns and shutdowns of manufacturing units, car output and sales grew slowly in various parts of the world.
