Over the next five years, automotive connectivity will disrupt large parts of the automotive industry. Traditional product-based transactional business models will integrate a growing number of service-based experiences mirroring and developing on consumer product usage and cycles, opening the door to new entrants along the way and requiring established players to adjust their business models. The effects will ripple through the supply chain.
To understand what this means, several major questions need to be addressed:
- How will industry players adapt to these changing consumer preferecnes?
- How will automotive OEMs secure their share of the revenue stream in competition with tech giants like Apple & Google?
- What does that mean for their suppliers and partners?
- How will the industry tackle evolving problems of data ownership and security?
- Is legislation required or likely, will the playing field be tilted?
- A large number of more detailed questions – like the status of eCall in the EU, or the balance between aftermarket and factory-fitted options – will also require resolution.
“Internet of Cars: from Disruption to Dominance” looks at connected car trends, changes in structural dynamics in the automotive sector and the key challenges for the industry, with a global forecast through to 2020.
