The automotive industry expects that the increasing demand for faster in-vehicle networking will boost the demand for automotive ethernet. Additionally, continuous innovation in connected car features will boost the demand for automotive ethernet.

Network segment is expected to have largest share in the global automotive ethernet market

The network segment is expected to hold the largest share of the automotive ethernet industry during the forecast period. The network section of automotive ethernet is undergoing tremendous growth, exceeding other areas, as the vehicle landscape evolves toward smart features, connectivity, and autonomous driving. The necessity for high-bandwidth connection for infotainment and ADAS, the cost-effectiveness and scalability of ethernet compared to older CAN bus systems, and its role in enabling crucial technologies like V2X communication are all driving this boom. Moreover, automotive ethernet product and solution providers are working closely with automakers to develop and provide efficient solutions. For instance, NXP Semiconductors announced in July 2023 that it will be working together with Mahindra and Mahindra, Ltd. (India) over connected vehicles. Automotive ethernet, with its improved data processing capabilities and futureproof architecture, serves as the foundation for next-generation cars, assuring safer, more efficient, and more sophisticated transportation experiences.

2.5/5/10 Gbps bandwidth segment is estimated to exhibit the fastest growth in global automotive ethernet market

The 2.5/5/10 Gbps bandwidth range in automotive Ethernet signifies an exponential leap in data transfer rates. This facilitates ultra-high-speed communication within vehicles. This standard enables a host of highly data-intensive applications, including extremely high-definition multimedia streaming, intricate real-time sensor fusion for advanced autonomous driving systems, and the seamless integration of complex vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communication. Moreover, IEEE 802.3ch defines these 2.5/5/10 Gbps bandwidths. They utilize PAM4 encoding, full duplex transmission, and a point-to-point topology.

These bandwidths allow the high data speeds required for autonomous driving systems. To deliver high-resolution video for image recognition, these applications demand lossless video transmission. Autonomous driving systems link to actuators capable of assuming control of the car. Moreover, there must be no interruptions in the video or other connections. Multiple companies in automotive ethernet market are providing products and solutions capable of supporting such high bandwidth. Moreover, Marvell Technology, Inc. released the automotive ethernet switch Q6223 in June 2023, which houses multiple PHYs capable of 2.5 Gbps data transfer speed.

Germany to lead the automotive ethernet market in Europe

During the forecast period, analysts anticipate Germany becoming the largest market in Europe for automotive ethernet. Automotive Ethernet is growing rapidly in Germany, owing to the country’s position as a worldwide automotive powerhouse and its continuous dedication to technical innovation. Germany, known for engineering prowess and cutting-edge automobile manufacture, is at the forefront of driving automotive developments. Furthermore, the country’s automotive and technology behemoths are actively leading R&D efforts. They emphasize incorporating modern technologies such as driver monitoring, OTA software updates, and high-speed networking solutions into automobiles.

The primary elements driving its growth in Germany include the industry’s relentless pursuit of technological advancements, government support for research and innovation, stringent safety standards that necessitate robust in-vehicle networking solutions, and a consumer base that increasingly demands vehicles with cutting-edge safety features and seamless connectivity. Germany has a significant presence of automotive ethernet product and solutions providers such as Rhode & Schwarz, Ruetz System Solutions GmbH, Infineon Technologies AG and TSN Systems GmbH. In February 2023, Rhode & Schwarz announced an investment of USD 65.2 million. They also plan to develop a new research and manufacturing center in the country.
