Global IoT in Automotive Market Set Picking Up Speed: Projected to Grow at a CAGR of 25.5% by 2028 | BlueWeave

Delhi, NCR, Dec. 22, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Global IoT in automotive market is growing at a high CAGR owing to the growing investment in smart city project. The market is also driven by the development of smart parking lots, the growing demand for electric vehicles, and the commercialization of IoT for automotive applications….

A recent study conducted by the strategic consulting and market research firm BlueWeave Consulting revealed that the global IoT in automotive market was worth USD 58.7 billion in 2021. The market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 25.5%, earning revenue of around USD 286.8 billion by the end of 2028. The growth of the global IoT in automotive market can be attributed to the growing investment in smart city projects, development of smart parking, and demand for more user-friendly vehicles. Furthermore, the growing number of road accidents, and commercialization of IoT for automotive applications is also favoring market growth.

Growing Investment in Smart City Projects and Government Initiatives Are Propelling the Growth of IoT in Automotive

The increasing demand for smart parking systems around the world has led to the growing adoption of IoT in the automotive sector. Therefore, several government agencies are promoting smart city programs and implementing smart parking to ensure smooth traffic in the city. The integration of AI (Artificial Intelligence) and machine learning in parking and vehicles is further supporting the growing implementation of smart parking systems in smart cities around the world.  Moreover, AI provides facilities like dynamic messaging, parking sensors, real-time occupancy data of parking spots, and available parking spots to ensure smooth parking of the vehicle. Such advantages are expected to strengthen the IoT in Automotive market during the forecast period.

Libelium Comunicaciones Distribuidas, a Spanish company that provides Smart Parking, estimates that smart parking can reduce traffic volume by 8%, emissions by 40%, and time spent by 43%, while increasing parking revenues by 35%. The Australian government's smart city projects are also expected to implement smart parking systems throughout the country. An example of such a project is the "Integrated Smart Parking System" in Australia, which aims to increase the number of public spaces available to people in rural and regional areas. Thus, the growing number of smart parking systems has fuelled the integration of IoT in the automotive industry and is driving the growth of the market. 

Growing demand for electric and hybrid vehicles is driving the growth of the global IoT in automotive market

The demand for electric and hybrid vehicles is growing by the day. As the number of automobiles on the road continues to rise year after year, governments and businesses are attempting to limit carbon emissions and encouraging people to switch to electric vehicles. The sales of electric vehicles have been increasing at a rapid rate in the recent years and the pandemic has further fueled the demand. According to the Global EV Outlook Report of 2021, EV sales went up by 43% during the pandemic in 2020 compared to 2019 and reached 10 million.

When used in an electric vehicle, the IoT can locate charging points nearby, and provide drivers with battery information, such as how long the battery will last, besides keeping track of other components of the car. The technology can also be used to optimize parking. Additionally, IoT can help with real-time EV charging forecasts. IoT also allows the smooth working of several sensors in electric vehicles. The aforementioned characteristics of IoT, combined with the growing sales of electric vehicles are expected to drive the growth of the global IoT in the automotive market.

Impact of COVID-19 on the Global IoT in Automotive Market

The COVID-19 has had a negative impact on the global IoT in automotive market. The demand for automotive vehicles suffered significantly as automobile manufacturing went down. OICA - the International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers reported a 16% decrease in global vehicle manufacturing in 2020, with fewer than 78 million vehicles produced worldwide. OICA’s president, Mr. FU Bingfeng called 2020 “the worst crisis ever to impact the automotive industry, a key sector of the world economy.”

As per the Global EV Outlook Report 2021, 2020 has been a fruitful year for EV sales even in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, with a staggering 43% increase in sales reaching 10 million. China happens to be the biggest country in the EVs sector in terms of sales, with an estimated 4.5 million electric cars running through the country in 2020. As against this, Europe registered the highest annual increase by recording 3.2 million in sales for just a year. Despite growing sales of electric vehicles, the slump in the demand for conventional vehicles affected the global IoT in automotive market in 2020. Additionally, the recovery of the market has been hampered by semiconductor shortage, energy crisis, supply chain issues, and container shortage. Moreover, now the emergence of the Omicron variant of coronavirus hangs like Sword of Damocles over the market. Nevertheless, the IoT in Automotive market is expected to recover swiftly in the coming years.
