Important Factors Shaping APAC Automotive Telematics Market

  • Favorable Government Initiatives and Rising Technology Penetration

    Owing to favourable government initiatives, telecom infrastructure has registered significant growth in APAC. For instance, the installation of telematics systems and satellite positioning in commercial vehicles has been made mandatory by the Chinese government. Moreover, increasing smartphone penetration is likely to create a strong base for telematics.

    The smartphone adoption rate in Australia was nearly 70-80% in 2017. By 2020, the usage of smartphone in South Korea, China, and Japan is estimated to be more than half. In addition, the rollout of new generation network is expected to further drive the growth of the APAC automotive telematics market.

  • Major Focus on Compatible Telematics with Advanced Features

    In the current scenario, the automotive telematics industry is moving towards big data connectivity for robust and reliable information storage. For instance, Japan is planning a single national automotive big data platform from 2020. According to this plan, all vehicle-related information will be integrated into a single platform, and random access will be restricted. Government of Japan plans to charge fees to the public for accessing the data platform.

    Furthermore, telematics manufacturers are focusing on making telematics compatible with multiple operating systems and software platforms. For example, mirror telematics unit – a rear-view mirror telematics unit equipped with LTE communication module – is the first application in the Japanese car electronics market to utilise cloud services. Such factors are most likely to positively affect the growth of the APAC automotive telematics market during the forecast period.

  • Transforming Road and Telecom Infrastructure

    Internet penetration has increased globally, along with the increased adoption of advanced wireless technology. Enhanced wireless technologies such as 3G, 4G, 5G and LTE are expected to be used widely in future. In most parts of the world, there is constant improvement in the road and carrier infrastructure in telecom. Major countries in APAC region such as India, Singapore, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, and China are taking the initiative to transform their road and telecom infrastructure. The result is likely to result in the upsurge in demand for automotive telematics in the region.
