The global connected car market is primarily driven by factors such as growing awareness about safety and security and need for connectivity. Safety and security services such as emergency call (eCall) and stolen vehicle tracking (SVT) are becoming popular among consumers. Demand for other services such as gaming, entertainment, traffic information, and weather and location information is further supporting the growth of this market.

Among the major connectivity technologies, 4G held more than 30% of the entire connected car market in 2012 due to its high speed and simplified network architecture. In terms of connectivity solution, integrated solution dominated the global connected car market in 2012. This is because it eliminates the requirement of costly hardware in vehicles unlike tethered solution. The demand for integrated solution is driven by government mandates in developed regions namely U.S. and Europe. China is expected to be the largest consumer for this solution in coming years owing to growing usage of web-based applications. Due to the growing demand for traffic information services among consumers, navigation application is popular among masses. Among all the application segments, navigation dominated the global connected car market with more than 40% share in 2012.
