A connected car is a car which is empowered with internet access with a wireless LAN (local area network). This system allows the car to share internet access with other devices for use inside and outside the car. The connected car system enables the integration of every system and component of the car with each other, which can be monitored on a mobile device. This system makes driving safer, the car secure, and helps the user to identify or rectify the faults in the vehicle.
Increase in demand for smartphones, internet, and advanced technologies along with the increase in demand for vehicles is expected to boost the demand for connected car systems. Advanced infotainment devices with a fast connection of the wireless network is a key factor that is projected to boost the connected car systems market during the forecast period. Moreover, increase in stringency of vehicle norms, industry consent regarding the safety and security of the vehicle, and increasing demand for handy features, such as multimedia streaming, navigation, and remote diagnostics are major factors that are anticipated to drive the connected car systems market.
Automakers are following new vehicle safety norms to encourage the safety of the vehicle and to make the vehicle more secure from hacking and malfunctioning. This, in turn, is also likely to propel the demand for connected cars systems. Data breaching, hacking, along with the absence of strong infrastructure in developing countries are key factors restraining the connected car systems market, as these can affect the security and safety of the vehicle.
