Key Market Trends

Growing Advancement in Infotainment Systems

There is a rise in smartphone functions to be built into in-vehicle infotainment systems. In North America and Europe, over 90% of adults have access to the internet through their mobile phones, which is also one of the highest among other regions. As mobile phone use has risen, the usage of smartphones for the same purposes in their cars has also increased.

Car manufacturers are themselves opting for modular hardware design. This helps them reduce the purchase price of infotainment systems. They are working on technology to let smartphone functions to be built into in-vehicle infotainment systems at a low cost. Manufacturers are working to combining processing power and the competitiveness of their system. The digital services generate large quantities of data sets for car manufacturers to improve the performance of the connected vehicles. For instance,

  • In January 2020, Land Rover announced that its Defender family would showcase its 21st-century dual-eSIM connectivity at CES 2020 in Las Vegas, the world’s largest consumer electronics show. New Defender is the first vehicle with two embedded LTE modems for enhanced connectivity, while Jaguar Land Rover’s new Pivi Pro touchscreen infotainment has an industry-leading design and shares electronic hardware with the latest smartphone.

There is also a growing demand for Rear Seat Infotainment Systems, which has grown over the years. Giving control over these systems with the help of smartphones will further improve the penetration of infotainment systems built in cars.
