Development status of PCB in automotive electronics

347 Published by FASTPCBA 12月 18,2018

Automotive electronics is the combination of electronic information technology and traditional automotive technology, is the general name of automotive electronic control and vehicle electronic control.

The degree of automotive electronics is regarded as an important indicator to measure the level of modern cars and an important technical measure to develop new models and improve the performance of cars. Driven by tesla, the industry is in the process of rapid rise.PCB is widely used in automotive electronics, power control system, security control system, automobile body electronic system, entertainment, communication systems are involved, the big four so to the requirement of PCB is diversified, large amount of low price of products and the demand of high reliability, single and double in automotive PCB panel, 4 layer board, 6 layer board, 8-16 layer board proportion are 26.93%, 25.70%, 17.37% and 3.49% respectively, total accounted for about 73%;HDI, FPC, IC board accounted for 9.56%, 14.57%, 2.38%, respectively, accounting for about 27% of the total, it can be seen that the multi-layer board is still the main demand for automotive electronics.

Single and double panels and multilayer panels account for about 73% of the total in automotive applications

In 2016, the average PCB consumption of a single car was $55, and by 2020, the average PCB consumption of a single car will reach $65.For compact cars, the amount of PCB used is $18-30, for mid-range models, $40-60, and for luxury models, $120-150.

From 2016 to 2020, the CAGR of automotive PCB industry was about 4.51%

The total vehicle controller (VCU), motor controller (MCU) and battery management system (BMS) of new energy vehicles have increased the PCB value of a single vehicle by more than 2,000 yuan, significantly exceeding the range of improvement brought by intelligence and lightness.Therefore, in addition to the automotive electronic upgrade, the rapid penetration of new energy vehicles in the support of national policies will constitute the main growth point of automotive PCB.

By the end of November 2017, the sales volume of new energy vehicles in China has exceeded 600,000 in 17 years, up 52.44% year on year. The penetration rate of new energy vehicles in the domestic automobile market in November alone has exceeded 3.5%.By 2020, China’s annual sales of new energy vehicles are expected to reach 2.1 million, with a penetration rate of 7%. By 2025 and 2030, annual sales will reach 5.25 million and 15.2 million, with a penetration rate of 15% and 40%.We estimate that the new PCB demand brought by domestic new energy vehicles VCU, MCU and BMS in 2020 will be about 2.8 billion yuan, or about 430 million us dollars, equivalent to 8.72% of the global automotive PCB market in 2016.In 2016, the global penetration rate of new energy vehicles was about 0.86%. Assuming that the global penetration rate of new energy vehicles reached 7% close to that of China in 2020, the annual PCB demand for VCU, MCU and BMS correspondingly exceeded 2 billion us dollars, equivalent to 40.6% of the global PCB market in 2016.

VCU, MCU and BMS have increased the value of PCB by more than 2000 yuan

In November, 2017, the penetration rate of new energy vehicles in the domestic automobile market has exceeded 3.5%

The essential purpose of transportation is to help people or things move as quickly as possible. From the perspective of individuals and society, Internet + intelligent cars are important means to better realize the essential purpose of transportation.

For individual drivers, driving behavior is the cost to achieve the purpose of transportation. Focusing on driving for a long time can be described as labor-intensive labor. It is similar to the development path of modern industry.

ADAS is Advanced Driver assistance systems (Advanced Driver Assistant System), the core technology mainly depends on environmental awareness, information interconnection, and vehicle control, is to use a variety of sensors installed on the car, in the first place to collect the car inside and outside environment data, static and dynamic object recognition, detecting and tracking techniques such as processing, so that they can let the Driver in the fastest time to detect the possibility of danger, in order to attract attention and improve the safety of active safety technology.Automatic driving can be divided into five standards: Level0 to Level5. Although it is still difficult to achieve Level5, i.e. complete automatic driving, based on the current technical level and policy environment, ADAS applications of different degrees are permeating, which will open up broad space for the growth of PCB for vehicles.

With the popularization of new energy vehicles and the arrival of industry 4.0 era, more and more high technologies will make travel more intelligent and convenient, further promoting the application of automotive electronic PCB.
