This IDC study provides our top 10 predictions for the worldwide connected vehicle market for 2019. These predictions reflect IDC's vision for the 10 most important trends in this market over the next 60 months (through 2024). Technology buyers across automotive manufacturers, tiered suppliers, mobile network operators, and fleet owners should use this IDC FutureScape to help inform their purchasing decisions over the next three to five years.
According to Matt Arcaro, research manager, Next Generation Automotive research, "In 2018, we saw an acceleration of the impacts of digital transformation on the automotive industry and ecosystem. Changes such as growth of mobility-as-a-service (MaaS) providers like Uber and Lyft and the preproduction testing of automated vehicles are forcing technology buyers to broaden the scope of services and technology they need to understand and adopt. This frequency of change will only accelerate, and ecosystem participants unwilling or unable to adapt may be disrupted."
