Market Overview

The car security systems market is anticipated to register a CAGR of over 5.5%, during the forecast period (2020 - 2025).  

  • Along with the increase in car sales year by year, the cases of car theft have also risen around the world, as a result, people are becoming more aware of car security systems.
  • Government orders/rules on vehicle security play an important role in the expansion of the market. Many emerging markets, including that of Brazil and Malaysia, have legislation that mandates the presence of immobilizers in every car produced.
  • However, the theft incidents are still high and theft numbers are concentrated among entry-level cars that have basic security systems. The incidence of theft among luxury cars that have state-of-the-art security systems is relatively less, pointing toward the advantages of having modern security systems in the car. 
  • The trend of remote keyless entry systems is catching on in the Asia-Pacific region and is expected to give manufacturers ample opportunity for the growth. Hyundai Motors India Ltd was the first automobile company to introduce remote keyless entry (RKE) or car immobilizers in their economy or budgeted cars, like Hyundai i20 and Verna. However, this technology is only available in the higher variants of the cars and not the basic models.

Key Market Trends

Growing Technological Advancements in Car Security Fueling the Market

As per the FBI reports, globally, a car is stolen every 23 seconds on average. It takes less than a minute to steal most vehicles successfully, and car thieves are getting increasingly sophisticated with their methods, due to which vehicle and car security system manufacturers are launching and continuously developing best car security technologies. Recent technologies, like tracking systems, passive immobilizers, and personal alarm pagers, all offer high-tech alternatives or add-ons to the traditional alarm that makes the car much harder to steal and easier to recover.

Another technology that is driving the car security market is RFID-Blocking Key Sleeves. In this technology, the vehicle will have RFID reader inside the car, beside the driver seat, and once the driver enters the vehicle, driver has to keep the RFID tag in RFID reader for clearing the security check. If the RFID tag is matched, only then the vehicle ignition will be on, otherwise alert signal will be sent to the car owner, along with location, with the help of GPS and GSM - GPS for location identification and GSM for message sending, and the car will make emergency sounds with a buzzer, and engine ignition, and fuel pump will get off with help of a relay.

Car Security Systems Market Key Trends

North America - Leading the Car Security System Market

Geographically, the market is led by North America, and followed by Asia-Pacific and Europe. The growing The North American region is expected to witness significant growth during the forecast period. This growth of car security systems in the region can be attributed to the presence of affluent buyers, and this is expected to propel the demand for vehicles in this region. As per the 2018 FBI Uniform Crime Report, a total of 748,841 vehicle thefts have been registered in the United States representing a 3.11% decline in the vehicle thefts compared to 2017. This decrease is mainly due to the increased penetration of security systems in new vehicles launched in the market.

  • According to the National Insurance Crime Bureau, there is one auto theft happening in the United States every 6.5 minutes, amounting to 156 auto thefts every day.

However, the numbers are still high, despite the advancements in technology. A major number of car thefts in the country can be attributed to the negligence from part of the drivers.

  • Apart from this, with the inclusion of advanced car security systems, thieves are continually devising new and sophisticated means of stealing vehicles, such as switching vehicle identification numbers, acquiring smart keys, eliminating hot-wiring, and using stolen identities to secure loans for expensive vehicles

The growing capacity of vehicle production in the Asia-Pacific region, and the increasing number of exports of automobiles are acting as the major factors behind the growth of the regional market. The aftermarket industry is also growing in the Asia-Pacific region, which, in turn, is driving the growth of the car security system market.
