Global Connected Car Market Outlook, 2018

Global Connected Car Market Outlook, 2018

The 2018 connected car outlook offers a 360-degree perspective of the global connected car market, answering questions such as: Where are the avenues for growth opportunities? What trends are affecting the growth of the market in different regions? It discusses the outlook for technologies such as human-machine interface (HMI), vehicle-to-everything (V2X), Digital Assistants, and Infotainment OS, platforms and navigation related trends.

The research highlights market, technology, and regional trends so the reader will understand where opportunities await in the market. Top trends include data-enabled use cases, data monetization, voice recognition as HMI through personal assistants and the role of software defined cars.
The forecasts for connected car unit shipments are provided from 2017 to 2025 along with penetration for HMI technologies such as gestures, digital instrument clusters, and head-up displays (HUDs). Global telematics subscribers have been forecast for the same period, along with the market share for automotive operating systems such as GENIVI Linux, QNX, Android, and Microsoft.

In this year’s outlook, the Frost & Sullivan team has analyzed the top connected services, navigation, telematics, data monetization and IoT related trends. Aftermarket connected car solutions have also been featured. A specific section on HMI solutions from touch screens to voice recognition has been covered.

Auto IoT section features new technologies and developments such as data analytics and blockchain. Car companies are evolving from the business of merely manufacturing and selling cars, to providing related services and multi-modal mobility solutions to target new customers and future proof their business. This research service focuses on different service models, namely, mobility-as-a-service, connected services, aftersales service, and autonomous vehicle services.

Connected car features (infotainment, telematics, input and output HMI) across regions such as Europe, North America, Brazil, and China have been benchmarked. The research is split across domains such as infotainment, connectivity, telematics, and aftermarket connected car analysis. OEM solutions are benchmarked against infotainment systems, HMI solutions, and app-based models. Overall, the study includes multiple exhibits offering in-depth analysis of select OEMs, Tier I suppliers, and other value chain disruptors. Highlights from 2016, predictions for 2017, and a holistic view of the global connected car market are presented.
