Key Market Trends

Infotainment System Dominates the Interiors Accessories Market

A basic infotainment system in a modern vehicle comes equipped with a CD player, a Bluetooth, USB port, lighter port, aux port, video panel, radio, GPS, multiple speakers, and control panels.

The use of infotainment systems in advanced automobiles, such as connected cars and autonomous vehicles, has been continually increasing. The market for infotainment systems may be further strengthened by investments being made by automobile manufacturers and tech companies. In 2017, Samsung Electronics Co, Ltd announced a strategic partnership with TTTech, and it has promised to invest around USD 75 million for the development of autonomous and ADAS technologies, in which the primary components will be infotainment systems.

Additionally, automobile manufacturers are competing to deploy advanced infotainment system in their upcoming vehicle models during the forecast period. In 2018, Mitsubishi Motors Corporation, Nissan Motor Co. Ltd, Groupe Renault, and Nissan Motors decided to adopt Google Inc.’s Android operating system (OS) for their next-generation infotainment systems from 2021. Additionally, in Japan, Toyota Motor Corporation added software applications, like Line, to its T-Connect infotainment system.

The European region is expected to be the largest market for automotive infotainment systems, due to the presence of manufacturing facilities of the premium automobile manufacturers, and the fastest growing market for these systems is anticipated to be the Asia-Pacific region, as the demand for premium vehicles is continually increasing in China and India, being supported by high economic growth rates in these countries, which are also among the largest automotive markets in the world.

Asia Pacific to exhibit the largest growth rate

The shift from simple audio systems to touchscreen infotainment systems that support multiple features, such as navigation, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Telematics, etc. are driving the demand for infotainment systems in countries such as India and China. Earlier, the infotainment system in a vehicle was offered only on the top-spec trim. However, presently, OEMs are offering infotainment systems even in the mid- and entry-level trims. Additionally, the road infrastructure in China is developing, and thus, navigation has become a must-have feature in almost all the vehicles. CHJ Automotive, an electric vehicle manufacturer in China, launched ONE, a smart electric luxury SUV. The vehicle is equipped with a four-screen infotainment system, including a smart voice system.

Governments and administrations in developing and untapped markets are spending a major portion of their wealth on transportation. This will result in the sales growth of vehicles. This calls for improving interiors to suit the needs of upcoming urban customers. Vehicle production in geographies such as Brazil and South Africa has increased by 5.2% and 3.5% in 2018 against the global downfall of 1.1%.
