Growing Demand for Leisure and Comfort Vehicles to Boost Market Growth

The increased demand for in-car comfort and entertainment features, such as advanced navigation systems, audio systems, and driver assistance systems, is driving the growth of the automotive (PCB) market. In addition, the growing demand for fuel-efficient vehicles and rising commercial and passenger vehicle production are anticipated to further fuel the growth of this market. During April 2020 to March 2021, the automobile industry produced approximately 22,600,600 vehicles, which included passenger cars, commercial vehicles, three-wheelers, and quadricycles, an increase of 2,930,200 vehicles over the same period of time. Fuel-efficient vehicles require smaller and lighter components that are more reliable and take up less space. Automotive PCBs are more reliable than traditional components and are lightweight and space-saving, making them ideal for fuel-efficient vehicles. Furthermore, millimeter-wave radar is used in ADAS and electric vehicles to help with safety, navigation, and autonomous driving. They need PCBs (printed circuit boards) to process the data and signals they receive, which is increasing demand for PCBs and, as a result, is expected to fuel market growth. 

Automotive Printed Circuit Board (PCB) Market: Regional Overview

The market is segmented into five major regions including North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa region. 

Existence of Automotive OEMs Manufacturers and Rise in Sales of Connected Vehicles to Boost the Growth in the Asia Pacific Region

The automotive (PCB) market in the Asia Pacific region is estimated to garner the largest revenue by the end of 2033, backed by the strong presence of automotive manufacturers and automotive printed circuit board OEMs, a growing electric vehicle market, and high sales of connected vehicles in countries such as India, China, and Japan. According to estimates, approximately 32% of all cars in China were connected to the Internet during the year 2021, and it is projected that by the year 2035, that percentage will reach 73%. Printed circuit boards are used in connected vehicles to control various components, such as sensors, actuators, and processors. They allow for the integration of multiple components into a single, compact unit that is both cost-effective and reliable. Additionally, they provide a platform for the integration of connected vehicle components and systems, allowing for better communication between the various components and systems. In addition, rising environmental concerns and the shifting manufacturing bases of major electronics and communication companies have contributed to the increased adoption of electric and autonomous vehicles, which is projected to drive regional market growth over the forecast period.

Increasing Sales of Luxury and Premium Cars to Drive Growth in the North American Region

The automotive printed circuit board (PCB) market in the North America region is estimated to garner the highest CAGR by the end of 2033 owing to the rising popularity of premium cars combined with increasing sales of luxury vehicles. It was observed that Tesla, a luxury automobile company, sold 490,000 vehicles in the US in 2022. New vehicle sales by luxury brands in the United States reached a record high of 18% in June 2022. In comparison with five years ago, sales of super-premium cars such as Lamborghinis, Bentleys, and Ferraris increased by 36% in 2022. Luxury cars require a lot of PCBs since they typically have more advanced vehicle electronics features for improved comfort, convenience, and safety. Luxury cars are equipped with more advanced technology, such as automated driver assistance systems, advanced infotainment systems, and more powerful engine management systems. These systems require more sophisticated and complex printed circuit boards (PCBs) to function. PCBs are essential components for controlling and managing the high-tech electronic systems in a luxury car. Furthermore, increased adoption of technologically advanced vehicles, rising electrification of the automotive industry, and a strong government focus on developing automotive components are predicted to further drive regional market growth in the coming years.

Automotive Printed Circuit Board (PCB) Segmentation by Type

  • Single-Sided PCB
  • Double-Sided PCB
  • Multi-Layer PCB

The multi-layer PCB segment in automotive printed circuit board (PCB) market is anticipated to hold the largest revenue by the end of 2033, backed by the growing demand for high-tech electronics, including heads-up displays on windshields, in-dash cameras, switchable drive modes, and improved telematics. Thus, multi-layer PCBs are more capable of handling the complex circuitry required by these advanced electronics. Additionally, their increased durability and reliability make them a better choice for long-term use. Multilayer PCBs are being used in automobiles as a result of the increasing heat generated by fueled engine automobiles, which is boosting the growth of this segment. Observations show that exhaust gases produced by gasoline-fueled engines reach temperatures of up to 1,400 degrees Fahrenheit. Multilayer PCBs have the advantage of increasing the density of components, decreasing the size of the board, and improving the thermal properties of the system. This makes them ideal for use in automobiles, where space is limited and the system needs to be able to withstand high temperatures.
