Electrical, Electronics, and Body Controls segment dominated the market in 2022

In 2022, the electrical, electronics, and body control segment accounted for the largest market share and was expected to lead the market during the forecast period. A sophisticated architecture for the vehicle's electrical system is required due to the fast-rising demand for driving comfort and safety. The electrical, electronic, and body control system ensures that important electrical loads, such as lights, immobilizers, air conditioners, locking systems, and windshield wipers, are tested, controlled, and safe. As vehicles become more advanced and complex, the need for specialized engineering expertise in electrical, electronics, and body control systems is increasing, driving market growth. Automakers are placing a greater emphasis on safety and comfort features in vehicles, driving the need for more advanced body control systems.

For instance, in November 2022, General Motors started a recall effort for more than 338,000 of its big SUVs to remedy a potential flaw in the onboard computer software that manages the daytime running light. According to GM, certain cars' body control module (BCM) software may fail to disable the DRLs while the headlights are on in certain circumstances, which can be fixed by GM dealers by updating the module software.

The connectivity segment is expected to grow at a substantial CAGR during the forecast period. The integration of connection services in automobiles has been simpler and more economical due to improvements in wireless communication technology. This has prompted the creation of new and creative solutions that might improve the driving experience. As the demand for connected and autonomous vehicles rises, there is a growing need for enhanced connectivity services that offer reliable and seamless communication between cars, infrastructure, and the cloud.

ICE segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The ICE segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Internal combustion engines have been the primary propulsion technology for automobiles for over a century due to the established supply chain and manufacturing infrastructure, range and refueling infrastructure, and IC engines being more cost-effective. The ICE segment faces challenges as governments and consumers increasingly demand vehicles with lower emissions and better fuel efficiency. Automakers continue to improve ICE vehicles through innovations in engine design, materials, and manufacturing processes, driving market growth.

The EVs segment is expected to grow at a high CAGR during the forecast period. This segment covers a wide range of services, from battery design and engineering to the development of electric motors and drivetrains and the integration of electronics and software that control the vehicle's powertrain and charging systems. As a result of factors including government subsidies, environmental concerns, and the availability of increasingly cheap electric vehicles, the demand for electric vehicles has been rising quickly in recent years. The market for electric vehicles (EVs) is anticipated to expand over the next several years as more sophisticated EV technologies like solid-state batteries, wireless charging, and autonomous driving capabilities are introduced commercially.

For instance, in September 2022, General Motors Co. announced a USD 760 million investment at its Toledo, Ohio, propulsion operations to set up the plant to produce battery-based electric trucks. GM's first U.S. manufacturing plant for propulsion- or powertrain-related products will be Toledo Propulsion Systems, which will be upgraded for EV-related production.

Asia Pacific region accounted for the highest market share in 2022

Asia Pacific region held the highest market share in 2022. This can be attributed to the rising adoption of EVs in this region. The Asia Pacific region is home to some of the largest automotive markets in the world, including China, India, and Japan. As automakers look to increase productivity and save costs, engineering services relating to cutting-edge manufacturing techniques, such as 3D printing, robotics, and automation, are in high demand, driving the market in this region.

Asia Pacific region is also expected to grow at the fastest CAGR over the forecast period. Demand for engineering services is increasing due to governments in the Asia Pacific area enforcing stricter environmental rules addressing emissions reduction and fuel efficiency. This covers services for designing and optimizing engines and creating lightweight materials and parts. For instance, in August 2022, the Indian government started giving subsidies to further boost EV adoption. The Indian government's policies generally align with its goal of reaching EV market penetration of 70% for all commercial automobiles, 30% for private cars, 40% for buses, and 80% for two- and three-wheelers by 2030. This agrees with the zero net emission by 2070 ambition.
