An Adaptive Approach to Modern-day Research Needs

Is IoT Integration Fueling Sales of Automotive Front End Modules?

The industry-wide shift towards efficient, aesthetically pleasing, and lightweight features continues to influence the growth of the automotive front-end module industry. Rising consumer inclination toward vehicle front-end modules, heavy investments are being made in the automotive front-end module space as manufacturers opt for miniaturization of their products. 

In addition, the evolution of smart automotive front-end modules has induced a positive impact on its market’s growth on the coattails of the increasing proliferation of the Internet of Things (IoT). Miniaturization of automotive front-end modules along with the integration of the Internet of Things (IoT) continues to be on an upswing. The proliferation of smart technologies in the automotive sector has enabled stakeholders to invest in the development of automotive parts using which customers can stay connected with other users in vehicles. This triggered the development of automotive front-end modules that feature Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and LTE connectivity.

Key players in the automotive front-end module market have been focusing on developing advanced products. For instance, Skyworks Solutions have come up with automotive front-end modules that include GPS-enabled tracking and wireless technology for IoT applications. SKY55950-11 is a front-end module (FEM) with an integrated low-noise amplifier (LNA) and pre-filter and post-filter designed for Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) receiver applications with output matching components embedded inside the device.

Can Sourcing Automotive FEMs Increase Productivity and Profits by a Considerable Margin?

The automotive front-end module industry is witnessing a momentous shift toward sourcing of the module. Still evolving, automotive front-end module (FEM) is not completely accepted by original equipment manufacturers on the global front. Sourcing of automotive front-end modules can support the automaker by reducing operations on the assembly line, lessen tooling costs, cut down the weight of the vehicle and enhance working capital.

Moreover, the modularization of automotive front-end modules has gained significant traction on the back of increased cost savings. OEMs can save production costs with modularization and can opt of sourcing automotive front-end modules that can facilitate about 20% to 30% cost reductions as compared to traditional methods.

OEMs are likely to remain an attractive sales channel for the automotive front-end module. ORM channel is expected to largely contribute to the growth of the market during the assessment period.  The aftermarket for automotive front-end modules is projected to grow at a significant pace, albeit at a lower base than OEM. Stakeholders in the automotive front-end module market can expect significant opportunities by tapping the OEM channel in a bid to achieve sustenance and increased profitability.
