This IDC Market Perspective reviews the state of the automotive vehicle-to-everything (V2X) technology market. This document includes analyzing V2X pathways (i.e., V2V, V2N, V2P, and V2I), communication protocols (i.e., DSRC and C-V2X), as well as the state of market readiness, testing, and deployments/trial. This document also provides recommendations for technology suppliers and automotive manufacturers looking to invest or differentiate their V2X products and services.
"Although automotive V2X has been envisioned, debated, developed, and tested for more than 20 years, the industry continues to spend considerable effort to understand where, when, and how it should be deployed," says Matt Arcaro, research manager, Next-Generation Automotive at IDC. "Few debate the merits and promise of V2X, but without sufficient vehicle scale, the industry will never realize the potential of proposed safety and efficiency benefits."
