The increased consumer demand for wireless connectivity & mobile Internet with the high level of penetration of smartphones and tablets will put connected cars first in the demand queue.. This will also drive supply-side players in the automotive industry to adjust to the new digital lifestyle to incorporate in-car Internet connectivity solutions. The global regulatory mandates (eCall in EU, GLONASS in Russia, SVT in Brazil) are likely to speed up the supply of connected cars by requiring the usage of Telematics for safety & security purposes and the installation of basic Telematics in all new cars in Europe from 2015 and in other countries from 2016 onwards. Future generations would rely more and more on cloud-based backend systems for content, information and services. This turning of car into a huge data repository will open new avenues of business for service industries such as insurance and content providers.
