Automotive Telematics Market 2
Automotive Telematics Market 2


Global Automotive Telematics Market is anticipated to display a CAGR of around ~15% over the forecast period (2021-2027). Over time, smartphones have evolved into the primary mode of communication. It has opened up several possibilities for automakers to replace traditional computer-based infotainment systems with tablets and smartphones, lowering product costs. The growing trend of remaining connected to the outside world while traveling is prompting automakers to implement connectivity options into their vehicles in order to boost sales. Fuel theft monitoring, car insurance telematics, and eco-driving assistance are now all available through monitoring systems embedded in smartphone apps. As a result, cellphones are a less expensive and more handy gadget because they do not require in-vehicle electronics. For example, Driveway Software and Zurich Insurance Group collaborated to develop smartphone-based systems that monitor driving movements, quantify driver distraction, and provide feedback to drivers via their phones. For the safety and security of autos, governments in major countries throughout numerous regions have implemented strict rules and regulations. Many governments have mandated increased installation to track the location and behavior of cars. Many countries have made services such as theft tracking and emergency call systems mandatory
