According to the report, rear-seat infotainment systems are expensive and hence their adoption is limited to high-end vehicles and a few mid-segment vehicles. Additionally, rear-seat infotainment systems have substitutes in the form of tablets, which are portable and inexpensive. However, tablets lack reliability compared to rear-seat infotainment, and this characteristic is the driver for the adoption of rear-seat infotainment systems
Further, the report states that security vulnerabilities rise from the insertion of multiple web applications and Bluetooth in automobiles. These applications provide access to social media applications and personal contacts. Any illegal access to the applications and personal information may result in the hacking of users' information such as passwords and usernames, which may lead to personal information loss. Therefore, it is a challenge for the players in the industry to provide efficient security protection for their infotainment systems.
