Global In-vehicle Infotainment market overview:

  • Over the years, the global in-vehicle infotainment industry underwent significant changes, evolving from pure amusement like radio, audio and video to a versatile smart terminal that can process more complex information
  • The increasing demand for systems that can promote in-car comfort, entertainment and convenience, such as on-demand music, mobile integration, live audio streaming and numerous other entertainment services, is driving growth in the in-vehicle entertainment industry. As these technologies now influence customer buying decisions, auto manufacturers are now looking to integrate such devices/systems in their vehicles across models.
  • Another factor boosting growth in in-vehicle infotainment systems is the increasing demand for faster and seamless options like 5G connectivity which offers benefits such as reduced operational costs and data transfer time
  • In the EU, regulations mandating the use of embedded technologies in all new car models in the member states support the growth in embedded form type. This is used to connect a vehicle to emergency services, following a collision, and provide location and impact information. Similar mandates could be announced by other countries in the coming years.
  • The global automotive infotainment system market value chain is comprised of four categories of vendors i.e. touchscreen display providers, technology providers, chip/processor/storage providers and ultimately the integrators (complete system providers) who work closely with the car manufacturer to deliver the complete infotainment system to be fitted on the vehicle assembly line.
  • The In-vehicle Infotainment Market is dominated by globally established players such as Robert Bosch (Germany), Alpine Electronics (Japan), Panasonic Corporation (Japan), HARMAN International (US), and Mitsubishi Electric Corporation (Japan), among others.
