2016-2020 Car Security System Market Historic Sales Compared To 2021-2031 Forecast Outlook

Multiplying sales of automotive and rise in cases of car theft are driving the global car security system market in past few years. As per FMI, the car security system market grew at 1.6% CAGR between 2016 and 2020.

The increasing demand for car security system can be attributed to the surging awareness among the car owners regarding availability of these systems and implementation of government policies, mandating the presence of immobilizers in new vehicles. As per the FMI’s study, the car security system market is forecast to reach the valuation of US$ 7.6 Bn in 2021.

Presence of outdated and basic security system in economic and low end cars has led to rising theft incidents. To prevent this, manufacturers are working towards integrating multiple standalone systems that offer more robust and modern car security modules. Luxury and premium cars often come inbuilt with these high-end security systems. Thus, the incidence of luxury car theft is on the decline. 

Increasing investment towards reducing cost of high tech security systems and making them available even in basic vehicles models will bode well with the market growth. Remote central locking system and keyless and push start ignition systems are gaining traction in emerging economies, which is expected to offer lucrative opportunity for the market growth.

Integration of alarms and remote sensing technology with central locking system has led to the advent of a new range of modern car security systems. Remote central locking system sends a notification to the owner while simultaneously tripping the alarm in the car when an intruder tries to forcefully break-in into the vehicle.

Some modern remote locking systems directly send the car details to the law enforcement authorities and trigger silent alarm system notifying the owner.

Original equipment manufacturers are also offering remote central locking system with biometric sensors thus offering more security to the vehicles. Rising efforts to develop cheaper car security system and rising demand for such security systems in economic cars will propel the expansion of the remote central locking system market.

How will the Demand for Vehicle Tracking Systems Affect Sales?

Increasing sales of automobile in developing countries and rising crime rate have emerged as the prime driving factor of the car security systems market. Automotive manufacturers are adopting intelligent security system to address the rising safety and security concerns within the car industry.
