An automotive amplifier system receives a signal from some pickup transducer or other input source and provides a larger version of the signal to some output device or to another amplifier stage. An input transducer signal is generally small and needs to be amplified sufficiently to operate an output device such as speaker and other power handling device. Large-signal or power amplifiers increase the circuit's power efficiency, the maximum amount of power that the circuit is capable of handling, and the impedance matching to the output device. One method used to categorize amplifiers is by class. The classes of an amplifier represent the amount the output signal varies over one cycle of operation for a full cycle of input signal.
Increased demand for sophisticated systems in a vehicle is a key driver for the automotive amplifier system market. Amplifiers are used in all electronic circuits. Increased demand for autonomous vehicles has led to an increase in demand for amplifier systems. The primary source of amplifiers in an automotive are speakers and electronic equipment. Demand for amplifier systems is likely to increase since electronic systems increasingly replace mechanical systems in vehicles.
The primary restraint to the automotive amplifier system market is the possibility of malfunction. Chances of failure of the system do exist in some circumstances.
The automotive amplifier system market can be segmented based on class, application, output, and geography. In terms of class, automotive amplifier system market can be segregated into class A amplifier, class B amplifier, class AB amplifier, class C amplifier, and class D to T amplifier. Class A consist of full cycle 360o conduction, while class B consist of half-cycle 1800 conduction, and class AB consist of slightly more than 180o of conduction. Class C type of amplifier consist of slightly less than 180o of conduction. Class D to T has on-off non-linear switching. In terms of application, automotive amplifier system market can be segmented into audio frequency amplifier, intermediate frequency amplifier, radio frequency amplifier, DC amplifier, buffer amplifier, and operational amplifier.
In terms of output, automotive amplifier system market can be segregated into voltage amplifier, current amplifier, and power amplifier. The primary aim of a voltage amplifier is to make the amplitude of the output voltage waveform greater than that of the input voltage waveform, while the primary aim of a current amplifier is to make the amplitude of the output current waveform greater than that of the input current waveform. In a power amplifier, the product of voltage and current at the output is greater than the product of voltage and current at the input.
Based on geography, the automotive amplifier system market can be segmented into North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, Middle East & Africa, and the Rest of the World. Asia Pacific is a prominent market for automotive where the demand for automotive and related technologies and equipment is on its peak.
Key players operating in the automotive amplifier system market are DENSO CORPORATION, Robert Bosch GmbH, Continental AG, Hitachi Ltd, Delphi Automotive LLP, Empower RF systems Inc, and PIANO SOUND INDUSTRIES.
