The global connected cars market size was estimated at USD 66.4 billion in 2022 and it is predicted to hit around USD 275.89 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 15.50% between 2023 and 2031. In addition to strong network technology, connected cars enable connectivity while providing performance, comfort, safety, and security. By connecting to online networks, the driver is able to communicate in real time. The main factors driving the expansion of the global market for connected automobiles are an increase in consumer demand for connectivity solutions, an increase in the need for continuous connectivity, an increase in reliance on technology, and an increase in tech literacy among the populace.

Machine-to-machine (M2M) communication platforms are among the connectivity solutions developed by automakers and service providers over time. Its M2M functionality in a vehicle enables two connected vehicles to communicate with one another. The vehicle contains numerous sensors and processors that provide the driver with accurate and up-to-date information.

Impact of COVID-19

When lockdowns occur infrequently and reduce vehicle utilization, there is a short-term continuation of uncertainty in new purchases. The shortage of semiconductors, which has already forced many major manufacturers to halt production, will have an even greater impact on sales. Despite the financial crisis, which has resulted in a significant increase in second-hand sales, the demand for private transportation continues to rise. This will compensate for some of the lost sales. Businesses can focus on improving connectivity between their services and products across the automotive value chain.

For Example, A shared mobility provider can boost consumer trust by offering connected services in its vehicles, such as contact tracing. This ensures that the vehicles are clean and sanitary, allowing the disease to be monitored and contained. Similarly, automotive OEMs are prioritizing connected vehicle programmes by increasing R&D spending in collaboration with solution providers and partners.
