According to a new market research report “Connected Car Market by Connectivity Form Factor (Embedded, Tethered, Integrated), Connectivity Technology (LTE, 3G, HSPA+, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth), Application (Navigation, Telematics, Infotainment) and Geography – Trends & Forecast to 2014 – 2020″, published by MarketsandMarkets, the Connected Car Market is expected to reach $46.69 Million by 2020, at a CAGR of 10.82% from 2014 to 2020.
The increasing consumer demand for smartphone features in a vehicle and the growing number of telematics mandates by various governments (both existing and expected) are key drivers of the Connected Car Market. Most of the major economies have already introduced one mandate or the other such as eCall in Europe, GLONASS in Russia, and Stolen Vehicle Tracking (SVT) in Brazil. The next big thing that is driving the market is the demand for low insurance cost and implementation of Usage-Based Insurance (UBI) from a third party provider.
