Key Market Trends

Increasing Customer Preference for In-Dash Navigation System

In-dash navigation receivers are highly suitable for travelers, as they are very versatile and can put one in command of a variety of information, entertainment, and communication sources, through a single device.

Apart from accessing music through discs, files, or the radio, passengers have been able to access the music and road-ready apps on their smartphones in many cases.

Moreover, the receiver's built-in GPS guidance is often much more reliable than smartphone mapping apps, especially if passengers have been traveling through areas with spotty cell coverage.

Some of the advantages, which have been creating a huge demand and interest for these navigation systems among consumers, are as follows -
  • Screen size and resolution - Screens can range from just over six inches measured diagonally, to up to nine inches, in size, but most range between 6.1" and seven inches.
  • Real-time traffic data - Some systems are compatible with real-time traffic services. Passengers can receive real-time traffic information, including traffic jams, construction, and even average speed of traffic along the programmed routes they have been traveling. These navigation systems not only benefit cross-country travelers, but also people with long commutes to, and from, work.
  • Map Updates - Most in-dash navigation systems enable the passengers to update the maps and navigation data, usually by loading new data into the built-in memory. These map updates are released periodically and reflect the latest map information available.
  • Smartphone Integration - Most in-dash navigation receivers offer touch screen control, and they can be used to match certain smartphone features, including access to helpful travel and streaming music apps. Many receivers now feature "app mode" that allows some degree of control over select apps through the receiver's display. In some cases, there can be a two-way control between the smartphone and receiver for selecting music and performing other functions; however, the app functionality differs from receiver to receiver. Apple iPhone and Android smartphone users can now take advantage of the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto platforms through select navigation receivers.

Thus, owing to the aforementioned benefits, the demand and preference for in-dash navigation system has been increasing, thereby, driving the demand for the automotive cockpit electronics market.

North America Holds a Significant Share in the Cockpit Electronics Market

Increasing HNWIs (high-net-worth individuals) in the country has added up to the need for high-end features, such as the touchscreen-based navigation system and multimedia entertainment in the vehicles.

Additionally, change in consumer preferences and the rising demand from the LCV segment have been driving the deployment rate of automotive navigation systems.

The country had witnessed a continuous decline in passenger car sales from 2015-2018. However, owing to the rising demand for light commercial vehicles, the total vehicle sales have been witnessing a positive growth.

Furthermore, the increasing focus of the automotive companies to add vehicle-to-vehicle communications in all the new cars in the country is expected to boost the demand for cock electronic systems, which, in turn, is likely to propel the growth of the market studied.

The connected car and vehicle infotainment system features have been at the forefront, thereby, enhancing the need for increasingly complex software-driven functionality.

However, even though all these features look attractive, automotive manufacturers have been faced with the challenge of providing security for these features, owing to the increasing rate of cyberattacks, which may slightly hinder the growth of the market studied.

Competitive Landscape

The automotive cockpit electronics market is dominated by several players, such as Visteon Corporation, Alpine Electronics Inc., Panasonic Corporation, Continental AG, Harman International Industries Inc., Delphi Automotive (Aptiv PLC), Clarion Co. Ltd, and Luxoft Holding Inc. These companies have been expanding their business by new innovative products so that they can have an edge over their competitors.
  • In January 2020, at the Consumer Electronics Show 2020, Samsung Electronics unveiled Digital Cockpit 2020, which utilizes 5G to link features inside and outside the vehicle and provide connected experiences for drivers and passengers alike.
  • In July 2019, Harman International Industries Inc., one of the world's largest manufacturers of car audio and connected car solutions announced an investment of INR 350 crores at the Chakan plant in Pune, India. By 2021, the company is expected to triple its production capacity. Additionally, the company also plans to increase the capacity from 200,000 units a year to 2.5 million units a year over the next three years. The Digital Cockpit units (DCU) and Telematics control units (TCU) represent 12% of the total production of the company.
  • In September 2018, Visteon Corporation premiered the industry-first SmartCore Cockpit Domain Controller on All-New Mercedes-Benz A-Class. SmartCore powers the vehicle's instrument cluster and infotainment displays through a seamless and intuitive human-machine interface (HMI).
  • In August 2018, Luxoft Holding Inc. (LXFT), an IT service provider partnered with LG Electronics Inc. to help in creating the next generation webOS. Luxoft may lead the deployment of webOS into the new, targeted sectors, beginning with automotive. Luxoft and LG Electronics may initially focus on digital cockpit development.
