Frost & Sullivan’s strengths lie in combining strategic understanding with market expertise and applying these with absolute commitment to its clients’ growth.
The automobile segment of the fault tolerance market is growing at a significantly higher rate. Since the extensive inception of electronics in automobiles, they have been deployed in various applications such as body and chassis, central command, telematics, power train, engine control, safety and security, as well as driver information applications in order to reduce the risk of failure of various components and eliminate human errors. Accordingly, the need for fault tolerant processors and microcontrollers is growing. In particular, the segments in the fault tolerant market that are witnessing tremendous growth are the telematics, as well as the safety and security segments.
The increasing proliferation of electronic content in automobiles, government pollution norms and oil crisis are the key factors expected to drive further growth in the automobile electronics market. "With the growth in electronic content in automobiles it has become essential to have fault tolerant electronic components to minimize errors and avoid catastrophes," notes the analyst of this research service. "Since a failure in any critical component in an automobile can result in an accident, fault tolerance is gaining increased importance in the automobile sector." Overall, the European region is expected to generate more revenues in comparison to any other region because of their early technological acceptance and government regulations.
Standardization of Protocols Essential for Market Success
"Critical applications in automobiles, such as the antilock braking system (ABS) and power train, are increasingly becoming fault tolerant and for the same reason, have to undergo a large number of tests and quality certifications before actually being implemented," explains the analyst. "Hence, realization of the investment in designing and developing the product involves significant time." As a result, several smaller potential participants are discouraged due to the longer lead cycle.
Companies will need to focus on improving processes and standardize the protocols in order to ward off fears and concerns of automobile manufacturers. In the future, companies are likely to devise winning strategies and standardize the protocols, which are expected to accelerate growth of fault tolerant solutions in the automotive segment.
