has announced the addition of the "Connected
Vehicles: Market and Forecast for LTE and Telematics Applications 2014 -
2019" report to their offering.
The automobile industry is very competitive. The profitability on cars
is slim with margins in the US as low as two percent on a new car. The
large motor companies can make money by self-financing consumer deals.
Dealerships hope to make money by promoting repair service packages, and
offering extended warranties. The connected car is considered a gift
because it is a new revenue stream, has a better margin than the car
itself, and can be a differentiator between the cars themselves.
In the US, leading automobile manufacturers have committed to embedding
cars with LTE in their product lines. For example, BMW makes an
LTE/Wi-Fi adapter for their cars. Alcatel-Lucent, Verizon, and AT&T are
proponents of the LTE-connected car.However, many new cars have
embedded Wi-Fi, use GPS tracking, and have other forms of telematics.
The full case for LTE is not yet realized.
This research evaluates the technology, solutions, and market for LTE
and telematics in vehicles.
