Automotive Communication Technology Market size worth $18 Bn by 2024

  • Published Date: November 24, 2018

Automotive Communication Technology Market size is set to exceed USD 18 billion by 2024; according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.

The increasing demand for automotive electronics is expected to drive the automotive communication technology industry growth. Over the last decade, the total contribution toward automotive electronics has increased from around 20% to 45%. Inventions such as automatic transmission, anti-lock brakes, telematics, and infotainment capabilities are revolutionizing the automotive industry. The electronic systems also assist in meeting the safety regulations such as adaptive cruise control, blind spot detection, and lane chase assist, encouraging manufacturers to incorporate these systems into their vehicles.

All these subsystems are connected to the central gateway through various bus modules including CAN, MOST, and Ethernet, enhancing in-vehicle communication and safety. Furthermore, the growing purchasing power, rapid urbanization, economic growth, and rise in the per capita ratio are the major factors contributing to the growth in the sales of luxury vehicles, having a positive impact on the automotive communication technology market. The government has also established various regulations for improving the fuel economy of cars and augmenting vehicle safety.

The MOST bus segment held a market revenue of around USD 1 billion in 2017. The MOST bus is used to provide in-vehicle infotainment and multimedia systems with precise communication during the transmission of data, audio, video, and control information. The MOST bus offers data efficient communication infrastructure for interconnecting infotainment and multimedia devices such as GPS navigation, radio, video display, and active speakers. The latest version MOST150 offers a speed of around 150 Mbps, enabling its usage in various automotive communication applications.

However, as the MOST bus is provided by a limited number of suppliers, the cost is relatively high due to which automotive manufacturers are now shifting toward the Ethernet network as it acts as a cheaper and flexible alternative.
