Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Automotive Transceivers Market Size


North America is the early adopter of emerging technologies across the globe due to favorable government policies to boost innovation and reinforce infrastructure capabilities. The automotive industry in North America has a potential influence on the country’s economy. Notably, the US was one of the worst-affected countries due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the crisis led to a cascading impact on multiple industries, including automotive. The operations of the automotive industry were temporarily discontinued, which hampered the business dynamics in the first half of 2020. In North America, a total of 43 states had lower auto exports in 2020 than in 2019. In March 2020, American Honda Motor Co., Inc. announced that it had discontinued production in North America, due to which the company saw a production loss of ~40,000 vehicles. Shortage of semiconductor chips and other essential car components hampered auto production. Disruption in the supply chain due to travel restrictions was limiting supply and production activities. The drop in production negatively hampered the automotive transceivers market during the pandemic. However, since 2021, the industry has been improving at a faster pace. Many manufacturing plants are nearly back to production levels after a temporary shutdown during the pandemic. In addition, the leading automotive players are engaged in the development of electric vehicles and are significantly investing during the post-pandemic scenario. For instance, in October 2022, BMW AG announced an investment of US$ 1.7 billion to build electric vehicles in the US to enhance EV production. Thus, the rise in demand for electric vehicles in the region is further propelling the need for automotive transceivers.

The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the Europe automobile industry was severe. Lockdowns imposed by governments of various countries resulted in the shutdown of several industries, including the automotive industry. This led to a drastic decline in production across the automotive industry, which severely affected the automotive transceivers market in the region. As per the European Parliament report, in the first half of 2020, the EU automotive industry suffered production losses of 3.6 million vehicles, which reflects a loss of US$ 105.22 billion. In 2021, with the relaxation of lockdown measures, operations resumed in manufacturing businesses. Hence, the market for automotive transceivers gained momentum. Further, in 2022, automotive transceivers are expected to have higher demand due to the increasing industry investments and national support measures after the COVID-19 crisis. For instance, according to the European Automobile Manufacturers’ Association (ACEA), sales of vehicles in Europe will rise by 10% in 2021 when compared to 2020. Moreover, Europe has a significant presence of automotive manufacturers such as BMW Group, Ferrari, Ford of Europe, Honda Motor Europe, Hyundai Motor Europe, Iveco Group, Jaguar Land Rover, Mercedes-Benz, Renault Group, Stellantis, Toyota Motor Europe, Volkswagen Group, Volvo Cars, and Volvo Group. It is further aiding the demand for automotive transceivers in the region.

Market Insights – Automotive Transceivers Market

Increasing Need for Communications in Automobiles 

Automobile manufacturers are continuously striving to improve safety and performance and reduce the environmental impact of their products, along with enhancing comfort for vehicle occupants. This, in turn, increases the volume of data generated and communicated between electronic control units (ECUs) of vehicles, along with the reliance on the same, thereby contributing to the demand for automotive transceivers. Advanced vehicles, nowadays, utilize about five separate ECUs to address the elevating demand for next-generation, embedded networks, and high bandwidths. The growing requirement for bandwidth and embedded networks propels the deployment of transceivers in automobiles. Earlier, only high-end cars offered comfort and other prime features. However, these features are gradually becoming common in other car segments due to the declining prices of sensors and ECUs with economies of scale. Nowadays, hatchbacks and B and C segment sedans are also equipped with these comfort and safety features. This has created a huge demand for ECUs and sensors in the automotive market, which triggers the demand for transceivers, as they connect all ECUs and sensors on a single mesh network. FlexRay, one of the key players in the automotive transceivers market, provides CAN for mainstream powertrain communications and a Local Interconnect Network for low-cost body electronics to optimize cost and reduce transition challenges in high-end applications. The increasing applications of LIN in body electronics such as mirrors, power seats, and accessories; CAN in powertrain components such as engine, transmission, and ABS; and FlexRay in high-performance powertrain and safety systems further trigger the adoption of transceivers. Thus, increasing communication needs in automobiles propel the growth of the automotive transceivers market.

Protocol-Based Insights

Based on protocol, the global automotive transceivers market is segmented into CAN, LIN, FLEXRAY, and others. The CAN bus is a message-based protocol designed to allow electronic control units (ECUs) and other devices to communicate with each other in a reliable and priority-driven fashion. CAN is supported by a set of international standards under ISO 11898.  The CAN protocol is most widely accepted and used in practically all vehicles as it is readily available, affordable, extremely robust, efficient, and fully centralized. It deploys faster and helps reduce vehicle weight. CAN has excellent control and fault detection capabilities. It helps in easily detecting an error, thus, transmitting data faster and more reliably. The CAN protocol is used when distributed control of a complex system is required. It reduces heavy wiring, costs, and weight. The cost of the chips is low, and implementing CAN is relatively easy because of the clean design of the protocol. Such benefits are leveraging the deployment of CAN protocol in automotive transceivers.

Players operating in the automotive transceivers market are mainly focused on the development of advanced and efficient products.

  • In March 2022, Broadcom Inc. released the demonstration of its 100G/lane optical PAM-4 DSP PHY with an ITA (integrated trans-impedance amplifier) and high-swing laser driver, the BCM87412.
  • In November 2022, Renesas Electronics Corporation, an exclusive provider of advanced semiconductor solutions, is entering the automotive radar market by introducing a 4x4-channel, 76-81GHz transceiver developed to meet the demanding requirements of ADAS and Level 3 and higher autonomous driving applications.
