Europe’s cybersecurity of cars market was valued at USD XX in 2015 and is projected to reach USD XX billion by 2020, at a CAGR of XX% during the forecast period from 2015 to 2020. Automotive cybersecurity has been a critical concern for the OEMs and their customers throughout the world. With the market for connected vehicles expected to reach more than 300 million by 2018, driven by the safety regulations, the market for cybersecurity is also expected to increase accordingly in Europe. Connected cars offer significant opportunities for innovative features and services driven by the consumers’ preferences for vehicle infotainment and safety systems. However, these new features, such as navigation, infotainment, and ADAS technologies, make the vehicles vulnerable to cyber-attacks by making them more exposed to the use of external software.
Cybercriminals utilize the vehicle’s internal communication bus and take control of additional modules inside the vehicle, including safety critical systems such as the ABS and Engine Electronic Control Units (ECUs). An attacker usually takes control of the vehicle by affecting the control of the steering wheel, accelerating the vehicle, activating the brakes, and turning off the engine, among other ways. The attacker can also re-flash modules, override hardcoded safety measures and install Trojan horses on the devices.
Europe’s Cybersecurity of Cars Market- Technological Developments
Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS) is one of the major advancements for cybersecurity incorporated for OEMs, Tier 1s, and aftermarket telematics providers. As a government tested solution, the IPS protects a vehicle’s critical components from being hacked and generates reports and alerts for remote monitoring of the vehicles’ cyber health. Malicious attacks are identified by utilizing Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) algorithms, wherein the unique technology scans all traffic in a vehicle’s network identifies abnormal transmissions, and enables real-time response to threats.
Europe’s Cybersecurity of Cars Market- Drivers
However, the ability to keep up with the evolving scenario and complexity of network access cybersecurity and the increase in wireless traffic leading to the ineffective integration of connected cars devices, pose major constraints to this market but the extensive research and integrated software in the malware detection system are expected to considerably improve the growth of the market. In Europe, the cybersecurity of vehicles among software technology is expected to grow at the highest CAGR of 27.0% during the given forecast period. Among the consumer segments, the aftermarket for cybersecurity systems for vehicles would grow at the highest CAGR of 30.0%.
The report segments Europe’s cybersecurity for cars market by technology type (software-based and hardware-based), installation type (OEM’s and aftermarket) and geography (the UK, France, Germany, Russia, Italy and rest of Europe).
