This article presents information about the auto electronics market in the United States. The total auto electronics market can be divided into five major categories: ignition; fuel, speed, and engine control; safety systems; entertainment and comfort; and other gear. In 1980, ignition electronic controls accounted for almost half of the $1.62 billion market. But in 1990, engine control and safety systems will rise sharply in importance. They will be responsible for half of the market and ignition electronic controls will account for less that one fourth of the market.
