Vehicle Security was relatively simple and indeed somewhat limited, if we go back a few decades. A simple blade key was all that was required to open the doors, individually, and this same key was also used for the ignition lock. The advent of central locking first removed the need for vehicles to be fitted with a cylinder lock on each door. This practice has all but ended in developed markets. Central locking is standard in developed markets and the sector is heading that way now in emerging markets, albeit at varying rates. A conventional cylinder lock is still generally fitted on the driver’s door as a failsafe in case the central locking or main electrical system in the car breaks down entirely.

In the 1990s, active keyless entry emerged, followed by the first iterations of passive entry. Keyless entry uses infra-red or radio transponders to send a signal to the car for the doors to be unlocked. The first active systems involved the key holder pressing a button on the key fob, but this system quickly evolved into passive entry systems which mean that once the key holder is within a prescribed distance, the doors unlock automatically. In response to concerns regarding "walkaway" locking and consumers wanting to check that the car was locked without risking the passive entry system re-opening the car, VMs have fitted discreet buttons into the handle which the driver pushes to lock the car.

In addition to developing automatic unlocking and locking of the vehicle, the industry has added other convenience features to locks and latch systems, especially in the premium market; here features like powered opening and power closing have been available for several years, although still with a relatively low take-up. A similar, recent development is in the automatic rear door/liftgate, where the key holder simple has to wave his or her leg under the rear bumper to activate the door unlocking function.

Moving few steps forward, reports emerged in 2011-12 from Japan of an innovative solution to driver identification which could help prevent vehicle theft, or unauthorized drivers getting behind the wheel. Researchers at the Advanced Institute of Industrial Technology in Tokyo have developed an ultra-sensitive sheet which appears to be able to identify the unique contours of the driver’s posterior; if the computer linked to this sensitive sheet does not recognize the posterior, the vehicle’s ignition system will not start.

To date biometrics have not been widely applied in vehicle security applications. This is partly a function of the state of technology development and partly consumer resistance: that said, there are signs that consumer attitudes in this area may be changing. Cisco Systems claims that many drivers would be willing to use biometrics to improve vehicle security - and reduce insurance and services. As many as 60% of the market is said to be willing to use biometrics to certify legitimate use of the car and thereby reduce premiums.

The report “Automotive Vehicle Access, Anti-Theft and Security - Global Sector Overview and Forecast (Q1 2022 Update)”, provides a comprehensive overview of the Global Markets, Trends, Shares and Forecasts as well as a technical round-up of various technologies and brief company profiles.

This sector analysis report looks in detail the developments in the vehicle access and security market. The service starts with a review of the changes in the lock and latch market, the first line in vehicle security and discusses how the market has evolved through central locking to keyless entry, passive entry and various versions thereof. The sector also includes coverage of the security aspects of the connected car but for fuller analysis of the trends in connected cars, readers are referred to the connected car sector report. The vehicle access service here also includes introductory coverage of the issue of vehicle crime and other "mega issues" that surround this. How the industry as a whole, as well as governments, the police and insurance industry respond to the rise in vehicle crime and indeed its changing nature will also be covered in more detail in future updates of this service.
