HVAC is installed in almost every passenger vehicles now a days. Whereas, start-stop is growing rapidly specially in European and North American countries. Every sub-application of the body control and comfort segment is showing good growth. This because of most modern as well as customized features can be offered in these sub-applications. Customers across the globe like to have control of the vehicle interior and exterior features. These are some of the factors that fuel the market for body control and comfort and led this segment to hold maximum share in automotive power electronics market.

The Asia pacific automotive power electronics market is expected to hold the largest share by 2027.

China, South Korea, and Japan account for the largest share of the automotive power electronics market in the Asia Pacific region. The growth of the market in Asia Pacific can be attributed to the high vehicle production and increased use of advanced electronics in Japan, South Korea, and China. The governments of these countries have recognized the growth potential of the automotive industry and have consequently taken different initiatives to encourage major OEMs to enter their domestic markets. Several European and American automobile manufacturers such as Volkswagen (Germany), Mercedes Benz (Germany), and General Motors (US) have shifted their production plants to developing countries. Moreover, the region is a home of leading semiconductor suppliers. Easy availability of power electronics components and devices made the Asia Pacific the leading regional market for automotive power electronics.
