New Technology will Disrupt Automotive Business Models

In-vehicle technologies and telematics, in particular, will transform the automotive industry. The term ‘connected cars’ refers to devices installed in the vehicle which allow Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communication or machine-to-human interaction.

M2M is communication between two single machines with no human interaction. In terms of vehicle telematics, this allows data to be sent from the vehicle to another location and used for vehicle conditioning or to monitor driver behavior.

Connected Car Market Development

According to the latest worldwide market study by Juniper Research, over 62 million vehicles will be capable of Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) communication by 2023 -- rising from just over 1.1 million in 2019.

This adoption represents an average annual growth rate of 173 percent over these 4 years. Juniper believes that V2V solutions will enable low-latency communications between vehicles, notably for the purpose of driver safety.

The new market analysis found that the rollouts of 5G wireless communication networks, anticipated to launch next year, will be the key accelerant behind the expansion of V2V communications.

Juniper has predicted that automotive OEMs will gravitate towards 5G for V2V communication over other technologies, due to its lower latency and high range.


Juniper found that the move towards 5G will expedite commercial deployments and interoperability, and predicted that the U.S. will become the leading market for V2V deployments. Besides, over 60 percent of new vehicles sold in the U.S. market will be V2V-capable by 2023.

In turn, it's estimated that the technology could prevent over 9,300 deaths per annum in the United States, representing about 1 in 4 motor vehicle deaths.

"The safety benefits of V2V are clear, no incumbent technology can provide the network conditions across the entirety of road networks," said Sam Barker, senior analyst at Juniper Research. "5G will be the key facilitating technology of these automotive safety features, however long vehicle refresh rates -- typically around 8-12 years -- will initially hinder mass adoption."

Outlook for In-Vehicle Application Growth

The research findings also predicted that automotive OEMs will explore new strategies to generate revenues beyond the vehicle sale, including in-vehicle content subscriptions. Juniper forecast that revenues from directly-integrated vehicle apps will likely exceed $2.2 billion by 2023.

Juniper has advised that in addition to leveraging 5G networks, OEMs must open up their in-vehicle ecosystems to third parties, in order to accelerate the development of emerging and future automotive content revenue streams.

2022 Tech Trends Outlook: What Happens Next?

This year may very well be another period of unprecedented challenges and opportunities. In 2022, several highly anticipated technology-related advancements will NOT happen, according to the predictions by ABI Research. Their analysts identify many trends that will shape the technology market and some others that, although attracting huge amounts of pundit speculation and commentary, are less likely to advance rapidly over the next twelve months. "The fallout from COVID-19 prevention measures, the process of transitioning from pandemic to endemic disease, and global political tensions weigh heavily on the coming year's fortunes," said Stuart Carlaw, chief research officer at ABI Research . What Won’t Happen in 2022? Despite all the headlines and investments, the metaverse will not arrive in 2022 or, for that matter, within the typical 5-year forecast window. The metaverse is still more of a buzzword and vision than a fully-fledged end goal with a clearly defined arrival d

Digital Transformation for the Oil and Gas Sector

The savvy CEOs of multinational organizations will accelerate their investment in digital transformation projects in 2022, and beyond, to improve their competitiveness. Every industry leader that is forward-looking will act swiftly to grasp the upside opportunity. Global oil & gas companies face a myriad of operational, commercial, and existential security threats. According to the latest worldwide market study by ABI Research, oil & gas firms apply digitalization to combat these threats and will spend $15.6 billion on digital technologies by 2030. Oil & Gas Digital Apps Market Development Investments in digitalization can help to analyze a supply pipeline’s condition, prepare for fluctuations in the changing prices for oil and gas, as well as aid action plans to create more sustainable operations and transfer to producing renewable energy sources. "Safety and Security are top priorities for oil & gas operators. Data analytics allied with IoT platforms have become

How Ride-Sharing Apps Changed Local Transport

Building on significant advances in disruptive mobile app technology, ride-sharing services have emerged to become a popular means of urban mobility. This is unsurprising given the advantages of ride-sharing options over traditional transport modes, such as buses and more expensive taxis. Innovative ride-sharing platforms enable app users to customize their journeys according to real-time phenomena, such as nearby traffic conditions, time of day, and rider demand. However, this is not to say that ride-sharing services are perfect. The popularity of ride-sharing has resulted in some additional traffic congestion in major cities already struggling to control this issue, while the widespread disruption caused by the pandemic affected most stakeholders within the local transportation value chain. Ride-Sharing App Market Development According to the latest worldwide market study by Juniper Research, ride-sharing spending by consumers globally will exceed $937 billion by 2026 -- that's c
