Power Distribution Blocks in Electronic Vehicle Innovation

The adaptation of electronic content within vehicles has rapidly increased in the last two to three decades. This pace is poised to accelerate even further. Moreover, the adaptation of exceptional electronics in smart vehicles will encourage vehicle users to utilize payment in-car services, entertainment while driving, and a variety of connected services.

Rising Adoption of electronic purposes within a vehicle

Increasing consumer preferences for these innovations is a principal driving force for the extension of electronic driver systems. Furthermore, rigorous safety standards imposed by governments and parliamentary bureaus have required automobile manufacturers to build safer vehicles by implementing features such as anti-locking braking systems, electronic braking force distribution, adaptive lighting, telematics, and protective airbags. These safety characteristics heavily rely on electronic control systems.

Reduced technological innovations within the power distribution box

A wired power distribution block uses conventional power transmission elements such as connectors, fuses, wires, and relays. This kind of power distribution block is extensively applied in the vehicle power distribution market.

The power distribution block is extensively used in heavy commercial and off-road vehicles due to its reliability, cost-effectiveness, and load-carrying capacity. Nevertheless, this type of power distribution block requires extra cables, as well as the size of the before-mentioned cables, which therefore increases the weight of the vehicle. This weight increase is a major dilemma for the manufacturers of these vehicle power distribution blocks.

Accelerated technological changes in the vehicle segment

The commercial vehicle market is growing at a meaningful rate. The rapid development of infrastructure, especially in developing countries such as India, is encouraging the growth of the commercial vehicle market. As a result, the power distribution block market has subsequently increased, especially so with bussed power distribution block technology.

A bussed power distribution block can use a single input cable, and allow the union of a splitter cable so that it can be branched out to connect smaller cables for sub-circuit applications. Autonomous power distribution blocks comprise barrier terminal blocks or junction stud-type blocks. These products allow the links to be ‘independent’ from each other and are not connected internally together. This provides multiple individual circuits to be re-routed to a single spot where each circuit can have various connections.


The power distribution automotive block market for the battery electric vehicle segment is considered the fastest-growing vehicle-powered market. Determinants such as strict emission regulations as stipulated by government authorities, the resultant decrease in excessive carbon emissions, and renewable energy consumption options encourage the growth of battery-powered electric vehicles.
