The connected cars are witnessing huge innovations in terms of safety assistance technology and infotainment systems, hence increasing probability of attacks in various parts of the automobile.

ECUs form an integral part of connected cars with the presence of around 70 ECUs in an average modern car, over 100 ECUs in high-end cars, and about 150 ECUs in luxury cars. These ECUs assist in reducing the complexity of the systems and simplify automobile communication. However, these ECUs are susceptible to a large number of cyber-attacks as they are exposed to multiple external networks such as LTE, GSM, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi.

For instance, Tesla Model X was hacked twice by Chinese hackers, where they succeeded to remotely turn on the brakes, open and close the doors, and blink the lights. The hackers succeed at this through cellular connections and Wi-Fi. To reduce the growing threat of automotive cyberattacks, various ICT companies are working with car manufacturers to adopt higher safety measures, accelerating the automotive cyber security market growth.

Market by Security

The network security accounts for the highest market share of more than 36% as attacks exist both in the internal as well as external networks. Millions of connected vehicles are estimated to be on the roads in the coming years, increasing the probability of attacks in the network interfaces. These include Bluetooth, on-board diagnostics, Wi-Fi, dedicated short range communication (DSRC), and mobile 4G/5G for V2X communication. The hackers can get access through the third-party communication in connected cars. Hence, it is necessary to ensure network security through restricted device management accessibility in vehicle terminals.

The cloud security is the fastest growing segment in the market and will register gains at over 29% through 2024. Due to increase in the number of cloud-connected vehicles, the cloud-based services are rapidly rising. They offer passengers and the drivers various services ranging from navigation to V2V and V2I communications, avoiding accidents. Hence, to make these services available, the vehicles rely on two-way information sharing, making it important to secure cloud technology, protecting the lives of the passengers, drivers, and pedestrians.

Market by Type

The passenger vehicle segment dominated the automotive cyber security market, holding around 90% revenue share in 2017. The growing amount of in-vehicle connectivity including infotainment services, mobile phone connectivity, navigation, voice recognition, and communication with several other vehicular infrastructures drives the market size.

As this connectivity is vital for satisfying the consumer demand, it also introduces huge vulnerabilities, assisting hackers to exploit and gain control of the passenger vehicles and access to the private consumer data gathered by the vehicles. As the investments in connectivity and digitalization are anticipated to rise during the next few years, OEMs need to implement a comprehensive cyber security approach, aimed at maintaining the cyber security in passenger vehicles.

Market by Application

The communication application segment accounts for over 36% market share in 2017 owing to rising deployment of technologies in modern vehicles. The V2V technology permits vehicles on the road to communicate with other vehicles and share data regarding road conditions and various other factors through the network created among vehicles. This connected car technology assists the drivers in avoiding car crashes and reduce traffic congestions and environmental degradation.

It is anticipated that by 2023, all the vehicles on the roads will install the V2V technology. This advanced communication technology requires an enhanced level of security from the cyber attackers, boosting the market revenue.

The On-board Diagnostics (OBD) segment is projected to witness approx. 31.7% growth till 2024 as these devices are being actively used by fleet managers, usage-based insurance providers, and consumers. As these ports provide a direct access to the most sensitive, internal, and critical systems in automobiles, they are highly prone to hacking, requiring higher cyber safety measures.   

Market by Region

North America dominated around 51.8% of the overall automotive cyber security market share in 2017. The rising demand for automobiles in this region on account of convergence of automotive sector and ICT has resulted in the advent of the connected vehicle ecosystem.

Moreover, the Department of Transportation in the U.S. is urging various automotive firms to share critical information and co-operate with researchers to deal with the potential car hacking attacks. The government in this region is also investing to increase the automotive cyber security.

The Asia Pacific market value is predicted to expand at over 33% during the forecast period. The enhanced usage of wireless network systems and in-vehicle infotainment systems have accelerated the sales of connected vehicles in China, driving the Asia Pacific market growth. Furthermore, improved research in the intrusion detection systems and growing integrated software in the modern vehicles will fuel the market demand.
