The automobile sales (unit: 10 thousand ) and automobile electronics market scale (unit: RMB 100 million) changes from 2001-2005
Market structure forecast of China’s automotive semiconductor electronics from 2003-2007.(Unit: RMB 100 million)
There are more than 1000 Chinese automotive electronic components vendors, but most of them focus on segments with low technological contents, such as automotive audio systems and automobile communication. As too many vendors come into these segments, the supply exceeds the demand and some vendors have been suffering serious losses. However, the segments of engine electronics, chassis electronics, body electronics and others that are characterized by high technological contents and high added-value are almost all monopolized by foreign vendors and joint ventures.
At present, the government requirements for automobiles safety and environmental friendliness are increasingly strict; and the consumers expect a better driving experience, high performance vehicles, improved onboard entertainment, and appropriate facilities for office work; moreover, in China, the average expenditure on automotive electronics just accounts for 4.8％ of the total value of the car, whereas the global average expenditure is 26.2%. All of this means automotive electronics need to be more and more applied in China. Therefore, the potential for China's automotive electronics is huge and attracts many giants from industries such as home electronics, communications, etc.
