Growing disposable incomes and rising living standards have increased the adoption of next-gen autonomous and premium motor vehicles across developed and developing economies. Leveraging advanced technologies such as AI and cellular networks, these vehicles offer a range of benefits such as in-car navigation, telematics, and infotainment systems.

The growing complexity of these advanced vehicular systems increases their vulnerability to cyberattacks, creating new growth prospects for the vehicle cyber security market. While initial deployment costs could act as a restraining factor, a supportive government regulatory framework on vehicle cyber safety may positively influence the industry expansion.

Increasing cyberattacks to foster network security segment

In terms of security, the market is segregated into network, software, hardware, and cloud security. The network security segment accounted for about 35.45% of the automotive cyber security market share in 2021. The demand for network security is expected to grow substantially through 2030 propelled by increasing incidences of cyberattacks across the automotive sector. 

These security solutions target different cyber attackers and restrict their entry into the user network, thus protecting the data. Network security is inclusive of hardware and software technologies that help manage easy access to the network, offering it a competitive advantage over other security counterparts.

Technology proliferation to drive passenger vehicles demand

With regards to the vehicle type, the industry is bifurcated into passenger and commercial vehicles. The passenger vehicles segment held over 81.9% of the automotive cyber security market share in 2021. Increasing autonomous vehicle sales due to rising living standards and growing awareness about automotive cybersecurity will fuel the market revenue.

Tech players globally have been utilizing advanced technologies like in-vehicle connectivity to offer a wide range of benefits such as mobile phone connectivity, navigation, voice recognition, communication, and infotainment services to their users. These attributes offer ease of operations and substantially boost the demand for passenger vehicles in the market.
