Key Market Trends

New Technologies like 5G and AI to Boost the Demand for Internet-Enabled Cars

  • The connected cars and related IoT features in automobiles are gaining popularity among the audience. Brands are adding new features to existing and expected models for enhanced user experience, convenience, and safety. But, this also demands better connectivity for these features to perform as they desire. Hence, Asia Pacific, as a growing technology hub, is also witnessing telecom providers offering network and integrated solutions.
  • In April 2021, Vodafone Idea launched Vi Smart Mobility in India, offering fully-integrated, connected car solutions for automotive OEMs. The company continues to provide the same in the region. The connected features in cars require fast and consistent internet. The introduction of 5G will bolster the overall growth of the market.
  • The expected number of subscriptions will encourage the network providers to upgrade the existing facilities and infrastructure to facilitate the demand for 5G IoT systems, both protective and regularly functioning, to receive the necessary network support. The high-speed internet would allow faster response time, increasing the effectiveness of in-car internet-driven features.
  • According to the Mobile Economy Asia-Pacific 2022 report by the GSMA, 5G adoption will grow across Asia-Pacific, with more than 400 million 5G connections, accounting for just over 14% of total mobile connections, by 2025. This also encourages the automakers to install the existing and upcoming vehicles with compatible 5G bandwidths in respective markets for future-ready products.
  • The increasing use of sensors and data technologies makes AI essential for quick and precise decision-making. Some automobiles already use AI for Level 3 autonomous driving, but for the industry to reach Level 5, significant enhancements must be made to the cars and infrastructure in Asia Pacific countries.
