Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “A key trend which is boosting market growth is the deployment of V2X technologies in vehicles. V2V technology has gained importance in the automotive industry as it enables vehicles to send or receive any appropriate information during transit. This technology allows a vehicle to communicate, through the Internet, with any entity or infrastructure such as another vehicle with connected devices, vehicle management system provider, smart parking solutions installed in a locality, on road sensors for turning and speed breakers.”
According to the report, a key growth driver is the increasing awareness of safety and security among drivers. The safety and the security features are highly improved in the connected car segment, as it facilitates the detection of the critical situations before it happens and warns the driver through appropriate alerts/notifications. The features include the ability to contact emergency services, the capability to track stolen vehicles, and vehicle diagnostics and directions. Over the forecast period, safety and security from hackers gaining access to cloud-connected vehicles is likely to emerge as a major concern among the drivers.
Further, the report states that a major factor that could hamper market growth is the security and network integration. Auto manufacturers deploy different technologies to provide roadside assistance, anti-theft, navigation, remote vehicle diagnostics, and infotainment services. These integrations would create a security risk for the vehicles. With the vehicle manufacturers shifting toward providing advanced features such as linking external devices, the problems in integration would have an adverse impact on the company’s reliability.
