OBD II requires ECUs to indicate any problem that occurs in the engine and there is dearth of parts available in the aftermarket to manufacture ECUs that meet this requirement. Also, aftermarket installers lack the necessary range of equipment to identify all ECU problems, forcing customers to seek the services of the original equipment service (OES) channels. Hence, as original equipment (OE) suppliers update their manufacturing methods to meed new OBD regulations, the aftermarket is unable to keep pace with the technological changes resulting in a low growth in comparison to the OE market.

This Frost & Sullivan research service analyses the North American ECU aftermarket. It provides an in-depth analysis of the market drivers and restraints and gives valuable insight on the current and future market trends. It also closely examines the competitive environment and distribution network, thereby helping READ MORE >
