Global In-car infotainment Market Research Overview (MRFR Insights)

Information and entertainment services are provided to the driver and passengers within the vehicle by in-vehicle infotainment systems. Music, games, films, social networking, apps, and other audio and visual content make up the infotainment services. Additionally, G.P.S. systems and vehicle diagnostics help drivers have safer rides. The automobile business embraces technology advancements in all areas, enhancing engine performance, improving car infotainment system, and improving vehicle safety to provide effective modes of transportation. In emerging nations, rising consumer disposable income and straightforward financing choices have made purchasing passenger automobiles easier, raising the demand for technologically advanced cars with practical and usable entertainment systems. These factors are anticipated to drive the growth of the in-car infotainment market.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

COVID-19 has quickly and significantly impacted the integrated infotainment car system business sector worldwide. Initial worries about a halt in exporting hardware and software components for infotainment systems swiftly changed to widespread production disruptions. Assembly plant closures also add tremendous pressure on a deteriorating supply base. Companies run the danger of breaking their commitments, which might force banks to step in and provide a loan or other financial support. The pandemic's exogenous shock hindered an already-occurring decline in the world's demand for autos, which is anticipated to accelerate merger and acquisition activity as prospects for sector consolidation for private equity investors materialize.

In-car infotainment Market Dynamics

The incorporation of artificial intelligence to give a virtual personal assistant with active voice command to proactively instruct drivers is a current trend in the infotainment car system market. Additionally, infotainment systems in cars are in charge of using the Internet to connect the car to other cars. Connected cars can improve user experience in the car, increase vehicle safety, and have a positive impact on the environment by reducing traffic congestion.

Market Key Drivers

  • An increase in the advancement in technology.

In cars, cloud technology comes in a variety of forms. Through the cloud, automobiles can connect to update maps and traffic information while avoiding crashes. Although cloud technology for automobiles is not new, it is evolving swiftly because of collaborations and cooperation between the software development community and the automotive sector. Most electric cars can interchange data with data centers to help the driver and provide real-time data on weather and traffic. One recent example is the Tesla Model S. Without the driver being present; the Tesla cloud receives all the information remotely and immediately assists the driver with any car-related issue.

Market Key Restraints:

  • High subscription prices for infotainment systems

Annual memberships are necessary for informational services like satellite radio, vehicle diagnostics, a Wi-Fi hotspot, roadside assistance, and real-time traffic information. These services start as a free trial, users get used to the conveniences, and eventually, they switch to pay-per-use. A basic subscription doesn't come at a premium price but might add up over time. Subscription-based business models and software upgrades can come at extra cost. Consequently, the added cost of an annual services subscription is one of the main market barriers for in-vehicle infotainment.

Market Key Opportunities: 

  • Government Regulations for Traffic Safety are Increasing

Future developments in automotive telematics and infotainment car system are predicted to increase commuter security and safety. These technologies are currently in their early stages of development and adoption. Regulatory organizations are ready to establish rules governing the usage of telematics technologies. For services like emergency calls and stolen car tracking, several industrialized and developing countries, including the US, Brazil, Russia, and the E.U., have already established or plan to implement telematics-related rules.

In-car infotainment System Market Segmentation

Component Insights

The in-car infotainment market segmentation, based on components, is hardware and software. The car infotainment market growth was prominently high under the software category in 2021 due to the widespread installation of infotainment systems in cars and the expanding market for advanced vehicles. However, hardware is anticipated to be the fastest growing in the coming years. The rise of the hardware market is driven by consumer demand for sophisticated features in infotainment systems, including 3D navigation, satellite radio, and online content streaming
