Global In-vehicle Networking Market: Snapshot

The global in-vehicle networking market is envisioned to gain an imposing impetus while riding on the performance of connecting several functions of a vehicle, including control and communication. With every innovation in the automobile sector, vehicles are becoming increasingly electrified. As a result, there could a surging introduction of electronic functionality in vehicles for enhancing their environmental, comfort, and safety performances. Advanced driving assistance system (ADAS) and other novel consumer applications in the automobile sector are predicted to fortify the growth of the market in the near future.

Advanced in-vehicle networking solutions offer more than just connectivity, control, and communication. New systems such as higher bus voltages and speeds could be enabled with the application of in-vehicle networking solutions. Higher bus voltages possess the ability to advance energy and electrification efficiency while higher bus speeds accelerate consumer connectivity and autonomous driving. Security, safety, end-of-line programming, power configuration, and other performance aspects could also be improved.

Prominent companies operating in the global in-vehicle networking market are anticipated to provide a large count of network connections found in new automobiles to cement their position in the industry. Protocols or technologies such as local interconnect network (LIN), controller area network (CAN), FlexRay, and Ethernet could be key for addressing the demands put forth by various vehicle parts. Easy to design in-vehicle networking systems that fulfill real network requirements are foretold to be the talk of the market. Manufacturers could look to focus on solutions that deliver high integration levels reducing bill of materials (BoM) and component count and escalating robustness in challenging vehicle environments.

Global In-vehicle Networking Market: Overview 

Vehicles today use more electronics to cater to the diversified needs of drivers and passengers and for addressing the concerns about environmental deterioration and fuel conservation. In the automotive sector, communications and networking pertaining to in-vehicle, vehicle-to-vehicle, and vehicle-to-infrastructure are gaining traction for safety and bandwidth needs.  This involves setting up of multiple electronic control units (ECU) that are connected by several in-vehicle local area networks (LANs) that differ in transferal speed and communication protocol as per the features required for each application and for information exchange. Automotive companies, as well as standards organizations, are successfully addressing major design challenges in order to meet fault tolerance, demanding bandwidth, determinism, and reliability requirements. 

In-vehicle networking involves the transfer of data among distributed electronic modules by means of a serial data bus. The utilization of a combination of hardware and software has led to a marked improvement in several communications and control protocol. 

The in-vehicle networking market can be segmented by connectivity standard, vehicle type, application, and region. 

Global In-vehicle Networking Market: Trends and Opportunities 

The increasing vehicle production and increasing use of electronics in vehicles are primarily driving the in-vehicle networking market. The rising demand for advanced safety features, convenience, and comfort systems are also bolstering the market’s growth. In addition, increasing environmental concerns due to Co2 emissions from vehicles is also favoring the deployment of in-vehicle networking solutions. 

Passenger cars are expected to be the dominant vehicle type segment in the near future. With the increasing demand for passenger cars, especially in countries such as China, the U.S., India, South Korea, Mexico, and Brazil, the demand for automotive semiconductor receives a boost. Passenger cars include hatchbacks, sedans, station wagons, multi-utility vehicles (MUVs), sports utility vehicle (SUVs), and vans. Passenger cars are the largest segment in the automotive industry, hence this segment is the most promising for the in-vehicle networking market. 

The infotainment application segment is expected to gain momentum in the near future. The increasing complexities in automotive infotainment applications due to the demand for higher interaction between infotainment equipment and the vehicle is expected to  favor the growth of infotainment application segment of the market.  

However, factors such as price considerations from manufacturers of low-end cars and from emerging markets are restraining the growth of the in-vehicle networking market. Nevertheless, the rising demand for electric and hybrid vehicles will benefit the growth of this market.
