The global automotive front-end module (FEM) market is estimated to be USD 89.75 Billion in 2015, and is projected to reach USD 119.08 Billion by 2020, growing at a CAGR of 5.82%.
The FEM market is primarily driven by the increasing production of light passenger vehicles and heavy-duty vehicles, rising demand for FEM modularization, and growing demand for lightweight FEMs.
Increasing demand for vehicles
From 2010 to 2015, the automotive industry underwent a period of substantial growth and profitability in regions such as Asia-Pacific and North America; the annual sales of vehicles has reached pre-recession levels in these regions. However, considering the present political, economic, and social situation in countries such as Brazil, Russia, Ukraine, and Middle Eastern countries, the future of the automotive industry remains uncertain.
According to MarketsandMarkets analysis, the North American automotive market is experiencing rapid growth in terms of production and sales. However, the outlook for European countries is much weaker, as the region is slowly emerging from a six-year sales slump.
Asia-Pacific remains the major driving force behind the global automotive industry, with 90.6 million motor vehicles produced—of which over 72.3 million were passenger cars—in 2014, as per the European Automobile Manufacturers Association (ACEA). Factors such as the shift in consumer preferences, expanded regulatory requirements for safety and fuel economy, and availability of data and information regarding FEMs to end-users are expected to fuel the growth of the FEM market.
Increasing demand for FEM modularization
The trend of FEM modularization is gaining traction, as modularization helps OEMs save on cost, time, and manpower during the manufacturing process. Previously, each and every component of the FEM was assembled by OEMs on the assembly line; this was time-consuming and extended the production process of the vehicle.
However, the advent of modularization has enabled OEMs to save on these costs and opt for outsourcing these functions. OEMs save around 20 to 30% of costs through modularization, in comparison with the traditional front-end methods.
China could emerge as a potential market
As of 2014, China is the largest automotive market in the world, and has remained the key driver of regional sales in Asia-Pacific, despite a 7.4% slowdown in GDP growth in 2012–2013. According to MarketsandMarkets Analysis, China is the largest market for automotive FEMs, in terms of both, value and volume.
Global OEMs such as Volkswagen and General Motors cater to this market by entering into joint ventures with domestic manufacturers. The Chinese market is witnessing substantial growth in the sales of and demand for automobiles, as the economy and spending capability of the population is growing.
Recent infrastructural developments have boosted the growth of commercial vehicles. However, increasing vehicle production has led to a rise in pollution levels in the country, worsening the urban air quality.
The Chinese government is therefore promoting the adoption of vehicles with lower emissions and higher fuel efficiency.
