Global Consumer Telematics Systems Market – Market Dynamics
Increasing penetration of smartphones, rising automotive sales, government regulations on passenger safety, widespread internet connectivity, the evolution of high-speed internet services like 4G LTE, and growing demand for infotainment systems in vehicles are the key factors responsible for boosting the growth of the global consumer telematics market.
Consumer telematics are majorly used in the automotive segment for the transfer and sharing of information among the vehicle. The rising automotive sales across the world is one of the critical factors responsible for the growth of the consumer telematics market. According to the International Organization of Motor Vehicles Manufacturers (OICA), 96.8 million vehicles were sold globally in the year 2017 compared to 93.9 million vehicles in 2016 increasing at an annual rate of 3.08%. About 70.8 million passenger vehicles and 25.9 million commercial vehicles were sold in 2017 compared to 69.5 million and 24.3 million respectively in 2016. Moreover, according to a report by the International Data Corporation (IDC), the global sales value of smartphones in 2017 was USD 478.7 billion. The total number of smartphones sold to end-users in 2010 was 296 million units, and the figure surged to 1,495 million units in 2016 reaching 1,536 million units in 2017. The rising automotive sales and increasing penetration of smartphones across the world are crucial factors which are expected to drive the global consumer telematics market in the future.
However, cyber-attacks by hackers, privacy and security concerns and the high cost of telematics equipment are the critical aspects impeding the growth of the global consumer telematics market.
In several cases, OEM telematics systems have been hacked to take full control of the vehicle including steering, acceleration, and braking. For instance, in March 2018, Chinese security researchers have discovered more than a dozen vulnerabilities in BMW's telematics system which allows hackers to take full control of the functi0ning of the vehicle. Furthermore, data shared by the telematics systems are prone to be hacked and stolen by hackers which can pose a significant problem to the consumers and the manufacturers of the vehicles. Owing to cyber-attacks by hackers and privacy and security concerns might hamper the growth of the global telematics market.
