Electronics market of India is one of the fastest growing in the world and is anticipated to reach USD 400 billion in 2022 with domestic manufacturing climbing to over USD 100 billion. India is projected to become the 3rd largest manufacturer of automobiles in the world after US and China by 2020. The Auto components sector in India currently estimated at USD 39 billion (ACMA) is closely mirroring the automotive industry’s growth. With demand in place and strong government push, the stage is now set for rapid growth of auto electronics industry in India. India has received investment proposals worth over INR 1.1 trillion (USD 18 billion) in Electronics space since the start of “Make in India” campaign. There is a need for “frugal innovation” to design features to address specific needs of the Indian market, especially in the 2Wheeler segment. Exports will be another area of focus, especially with global OEMs increasingly setting up R&D base in the country. The demand of electronic products in India is expected to grow at a CAGR (compound annual growth rate) of 41 percent during 2017-2020 to reach USD 400 billion by 2020, the domestic production which is currently growing at a CAGR of 27 percent may touch USD 104 billion leaving a huge gap for import to the extent of USD 300 billion. Most of the large electronic components manufacturing companies (Indian or multinational) are located around six cities of the country: Delhi-NCR, Mumbai, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Chennai and Pune.

Demand for electronic products in India is poised for significant growth in the next few years, driven by strong economic outlook. Currently, the electronics demand is largely being met through imports and there is a widening demand-supply gap. The electronics industry is going through an exciting phase with growth in demand and importance of electronics as well as revolutionary changes in technology, launch of innovative products and the challenge of global competition. The adoption of high-end technology devices, transitions such as the Internet of Things (IoT) are driving accelerated adoption of electronic products. This is the expected electronics market in India by 2020 in automotive electronics (USD 10 billion)

The Government of India has recognized the potential of domestic electronics manufacturing and has taken steps to promote investment in this sector. The Government of India is focusing on establishing a robust ecosystem to boost local manufacturing. The Government of India has treated the electronics sector as a priority under its “Make in India” program. The Government of India has also taken several steps towards increasing the ease of doing business, which has resulted in increased manufacturing setups by multiple foreign manufacturers in the country. All these efforts are expected to enable India to meet its local electronics demand and also cater to overseas demand in the coming years, by positioning India as a global electronics manufacturing hub. Furthermore, rising wage costs in China have increased India’s attractiveness as an alternate manufacturing destination.

In this background Tamil Nadu Technology Development & Promotion Centre of CII is organizing its 3rd Edition – Conference on Automotive Electronics with the theme “Next Generation Technologies in Automotive Electronics”.

    The government wants to see 6 million electric and hybrid vehicles on the roads by 2020 under the National Electric Mobility Mission Plan (NEMMP) 2020 and Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of Hybrid and Electric Vehicles (FAME). Currently, electric vehicle sales are low in India, rising 37.5% to 22,000 units in the year ended 31 March 2016 from 16,000 in 2014-15; only 2,000 of these were cars and other four-wheelers, according to EV lobby group Society of Manufacturers of Electric Vehicles. It is expected to save 9500 Million Liters of crude oil equivalent to Rs. 62000 Cr. savings. Government has launched the scheme namely Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of (Hybrid &) Electric Vehicles (FAME India) under NEMMP 2020 in the Union Budget for 2015-16 with an initial outlay of Rs. 75 Cr. The scheme will provide a major push for early adoption and market creation of both hybrid and electric technologies vehicles in the country. As per the data available, around 165714 electric vehicles were sold as on date which has saved 18280512 litres of fuel and has reduced 45831783 kg of CO2. It is expected that with the launch of the aforementioned scheme, market for hybrid and electric vehicles will gain momentum for all the vehicles segments including 2W, 3W, 4W, LCVs and Buses. With storage being the next frontier for India’s clean energy push from sources such as solar, the batteries in EVs offer a solution. Given that solar power projects generate electricity during the day, the EV batteries can be used to store that energy

    Vehicle Connectivity

    E-Mobility and Smart Cities |Telematics, V2X and IoT | Big Data Analytics for Intelligent Transportation | Remote Diagnostics & Predictive Maintenance | Smart Signaling |User Experience | Cockpit Domain Integration | ADAS - Roles of Artificial Intelligence | Regulations Vehicle Health Monitoring

    By 2030 data and mobility services are predicted to generate $1.5 Trillion in Revenue and the globally connected car technology expected to reach $100 Billion by 2020. The rapid advancement of vehicle technology is dramatically altering transportation models around the world. From early stage consumer infotainment features, to ride sharing and on-demand mobility services, to fully autonomous vehicles in the future, connectivity in the car has been the driving force behind recent automotive technology advancements. As a result, vehicles have morphed into much more than just a way to get from one place to another, but extensions of consumer digital lifestyles and a catalyst for significant change in the way society will experience future mobility. The phase we’re currently in, vehicle technology is advancing again with the introduction of over-the-air (OTA) services, which enable the transmission of software updates and data between a vehicle and the cloud. The introduction and adoption of fully autonomous vehicles, those requiring no human intervention, will dramatically alter the future of mobility. As the driving wheel disappears from vehicles altogether, vehicle design will radically transform as automakers shift to accommodate additional technology developments like the introduction of artificial intelligence (AI), new transportation models, and enhanced user experiences. Looking towards an autonomous future, transportation will no longer be centered on the traditional concept of individual car ownership in favor of a new era of “smart” transportation and on-demand mobility services. Connectivity has become a key product feature that is being incorporated into, well, everything. The Internet of Things (IoT), for instance, didn’t exist as a marketplace until just a few years ago, but by 2017 there will be more IoT devices in use around the world than mobile phones. Gartner, a global technology research firm, estimates that by 2020 there will be a whopping 50 billion IoT devices installed worldwide—many of them in our cars

    Shared Mobility – Impact on Automotive Electronics and Technology

    Shared Mobility – Impact on Automotive Electronics and Technology

    India can save 64% of anticipated passenger road-based mobility-related energy demand and 37% of carbon emissions in 2030 by pursuing a shared, electric, and connected mobility future. This would result in a reduction of 156 Mtoe in diesel and petrol consumption for that year. At USD 52/bbl of crude, this would imply a net savings of roughly Rs 3.9 lakh crore (approximately 60 billion USD) in 2030. This reduction in energy consumption results from a synergistic impact of improvements in System Integration, Scaled Manufacturing and Shared Infrastructure Development In addition to reducing energy demand, this transformation yields other benefits, including lower congestion as shared, public, and nonmotorized modes of transportation serve an increasing share of mobility demand. With a larger share of the fleet running on electricity, it leads to lower local emissions, improving public health. This has significant implications for India’s electricity sector and economy, supporting India’s ambitious renewable energy goals while saving money, providing jobs, and strengthening Indian industry.

    Vehicle – Safety & Security

    Vehicle – Safety & Security

    Cyber security | Functional Safety – ISO 26262 & Process Disciplines | Active & Passive safety systems – ABS, EBS, AFS | Integrating safety technologies | Emerging Threats | Advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) | Safety norms & Regulations

    The market size for safety systems in India is still very tiny. From next year, ABS and airbags will be standard in a car. While the concept of manufacturing a budget car isn’t news, building one with all the inherent safety features is quite a challenge. The age of connected vehicles is bringing exciting new innovations and transportation options. Yet, as more connected vehicles take the road each day, the need for strong security protocols continues to increase. Security protections are essential to maximize the benefits of connected cars, and keep drivers and passengers safe. ISO 26262 is the adaptation of the IEC 61508 standard for electrical/electronic systems within road passenger vehicles. The standard addresses architectural and functional aspects as well as procedural aspects, including safety lifecycle to avoid and control faults considering both systematic and random HW faults. Similar to a smartphone, vehicle software will increasingly need to be updated as well – and OTA technology allows this to happen remotely. Prior to OTA, consumers had to visit dealerships to get their vehicle software updated, a costly burden for automakers and a hassle for vehicle owners. With OTA, global automaker cost savings for mitigating software recalls and cybersecurity threats alone are forecasted to increase from $2.7 billion in 2015, to $35 billion by 2022. With the automotive world leaning towards autonomous cars, the demand for robust passive safety systems will only grow multifold. Car manufacturers are already talking predictive technology and with big names as Tesla, Google and Uber working on their own versions of completely autonomous and smart driving technologies, core car safety systems will definitely get the makeover as well
