T-box is a connected-car-standard terminal that delivers multiple online applications including vehicle remote monitoring, remote control, safety monitoring & warning and remote diagnosis via 4G remote wireless communication, GPS satellite positioning, acceleration sensing and CAN communication.
T-box can be divided into OEM and AM. Regarding OEM, T-box makers provide related services via OEM: has T-box directly connected with CAN Bus, ensure car-grade system, offer complete power supply design and ensure reliability. As to AM, T-box is plugged into car diagnostic port and can replace OBD. In addition, T-box can also be installed by changing original wiring, a way that may bring greater safety risks.
Global passenger-car OEM T-box market will swell from USD300 million in 2016 to USD1.5 billion in 2020 at a CAGR of 49.53%. When it comes specifically to China, the passenger-car OEM T-box market is expected to be RMB2.9 billion in 2020. As many carmakers consider "going intelligent & connected" as the direction of future development, T-box installations have increased rapidly.
Globally, due to widespread extension of GM OnStar, LG Electronics holds the lion’s share. As Harman spares room for Telematics module in its multimedia control system, it occupies a larger share among luxury brands.
