The global electronic stability control market size was USD 34.55 billion in 2020. The global impact of COVID-19 has been unprecedented and staggering, with electronic stability control witnessing a negative demand shock across all regions amid the pandemic. Based on our analysis, the market exhibited a huge decline of 15.04% in 2020. The market is projected to grow from USD 35.41 billion in 2021 to USD 66.65 billion in 2028 at a CAGR of 9.5% in the 2021-2028 period. The sudden rise in CAGR is attributable to this market demand and growth, returning to pre-pandemic levels once the pandemic is over.

Electronic Stability Control (ESC), also known as the electronic stability program, is an active safety system that can be fitted to cars, coaches, buses, and trucks. The system is an extension of antilock braking technology, consisting of a speed sensor and independent breaking for all the wheels. The primary objective of ESC is to prevent vehicle skidding under various driving conditions and situations. The system identifies critical driving conditions and applies specific brake pressure on one or more wheels to prevent vehicle skidding. Apart from this, ESC also automatically adjusts the torque during the critical driving condition to retain steering control of the vehicle to the driver.

ESC has the highest potential to save lives on the road by preventing the slipping of the vehicle. Hence, increasing demand for enhanced safety features in automotive is expected to benefit the market growth over the forecast period. For instance, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in 2019, the total number of fatalities in motor crashes was 36,096. To prevent upcoming crashes, governments worldwide are mandating the use of ESC to improve road safety.

Manufacturers in developed countries continue to improve their safety features to enhance the driving experience. This has created a competitive environment in the automotive industry for the consolidation and strengthening market position. For instance, in October 2017, major car brands in China Changan, Besturn, Dongfeng Fengshen, Haval, Geely, Hongqi, Lynk & Co, MG, Roewe, Senova, Trumpchi, and Wey, collectively represent 85% of the Chinese manufacturer market, announced to equip their upcoming models with the ESC.

COVID-19 Impact

Halt in Automotive Production to Hamper the Demand for ESC

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact the automotive industry. Additionally, various rules and regulations enforced by the government, such as restrictions on industrial production & import-export activities, transport & travel restrictions, and others, have disrupted the supply chain. Disruption in the supply chain and a significant decline in automotive production and auto parts demand have had an adverse impact on market growth. However, the automotive industry is expected to rebound by 2023, which will generate new opportunities for the market.
