Smart Keys were developed as early as 1995 by Siemens, and was formally introduced in the vehicle by Mercedes Benz. The critical driver for the smart key systems is the convenience that the key provides. However the OEMs are reluctant to adopt the technology with regards to the extent of safety these vehicles provide. Smart Keys were primarily a critical feature only in the luxury vehicles, but it has steadily increased its adoption in the mass segment of medium-priced vehicles.
The smart key also has the ability to store user preferences such as seat positions, steering wheel position, mirror settings, climate control temperature settings, and stereo preferences. Some Ford models even have the settings, which can prevent the vehicle from exceeding a maximum speed when the certain smart key is used to start it. However, the smart key technology remains relatively new to the Asia-Pacific market and therefore the increase in consumer awareness is critical to the growth of the market in the region. However, there are many Chinese manufacturers operating in the market with fitting a single push button to operate smart lock and unlock. It is one of the cost-effective and user friendly smart entry system. BYD is one of the first company to fit a smart key in A segment vehicle.
Among the application type, the market for smart keys for door opening is expected to gain increased traction in the market by 2020 with a share of more than 75% in the region. Among the components, the radio frequency for receiver block in smart key system would grow at the highest rate during the forecast period. Among technology type, Infrared sensor and Capacity Sensor technology would have the significant market by 2020. The market is significantly competitive with some of major vendors like Valeo, BYD, Dongfeng, Guangzhou, Zhonghua, Tokai Rika, Silca, Soueast, Denso, Hyundai Mobis, ZF-TRW, and others. The market for smart key systems in Asia Pacific is segmented by application (single function and multi-function), by techology (transmitter, capacitive sensor and IR sensor), by installation (OEM and aftermarket) and by geography ( Japan, India, Korea anc China).
