Published Date : 27 Sep 2023

The global body control module market revenue was evaluated at USD 32.79 billion in 2022 and is expected to attain around USD 44.11 billion by 2032, growing at a CAGR of 3.01% from 2023 to 2032.

Body Control Module Market Size and Growth Rate From 2023 To 2032

The body control module is a critical element that can perform various tasks. It reads data from input devices. Based on this, the output devices are controlled using a LIN (Local Interconnect Network) or CAN (Controller Area Network), which is used for communication between various modules in the vehicle. Numerous electronic systems in the car control multiple functions, and all these electronic modules are controlled by the BCM.

The global body control module market is growing due to increased demand for advanced safety and comfort in vehicles, strict safety regulations imposed by the government on the automotive industry, and an increase in demand for automotive components. Moreover, the growing use of several electronic components in automotive vehicles creates complexity in controlling the units. Therefore, it increases the number of separate control modules for automotive parts for organizing electronic content, influencing industry growth.

Covid 19 Impact:

Market Dynamics:


Automated software boosting the control module market growth

Automotive SW market analysis combines a functional grouping of SW functionality with a value chain perspective. The market can be divided into several SW domains along the technology stack from a practical standpoint. The operating system and middleware are the low-level SW components that enable HW/SW separation and implement low-level functions. Powertrain, chassis, energy, body, ADAS/AD, infotainment, middleware, OS, connectivity, security, and connected services are the functional domains for SW functions running on ECUs, DCUs, or smart sensors. They examined how the SW development effort will evolve by 2030 for each part, based on the complexity of the SW functions and the influence of ACES trends.           


Technical failures and costly repairs hinder market growth.

The damage to the automotive electric control unit may invalidate the setting of engine fuels and timings, affecting the vehicle's performance negatively. This uses intermittent faults in cars, such as a fire or stall, and ECU failure causes fuel efficiency, acceleration, and power reduction. The control units are complex, and most interrelated controls influence each other. Therefore, if the control unit completely fails or is tampered with, it may cause vehicles to operate.


Increase demand for electric vehicles future for the body control module market

The demand for electric and hybrid vehicles is increasing due to the increased need for pollution control systems and the implementation of stringent emission standards. Electric cars require body-controlling units to manage the electric energy and other equipment, such as the powertrain, battery, and transmission system. The growing trend of using eco-friendly and fuel-efficient vehicles boosts the growth of the body control module industry. Furthermore, the consistent support and massive funding from various governments for developing advanced technology in vehicles are expected to create a lucrative opportunity for the body control module market to expand.
