From January to October 2017, a total of 4.0993 million passenger cars were preinstalled with telematics in China, with market penetration standing at 21.02%, and the industrial scale will be up to RMB29 billion with a year-on-year surge of 38.1% and market penetration hitting 22% in 2017 around.
As intelligent driving and autonomous driving get popular and commercialized, the telematics industry size will be developing faster in the future and is expected to report RMB70 billion in 2021 when the rate of telematics installations on passenger cars will be 39%.
As for price range of passenger cars, the models priced between RMB100,000 and RMB150,000 enjoyed the highest rate of telematics installations or 4.52% during January to October 2017, and the installation rate of telematics on the models priced below RMB250,000 is on the rise in the same period. It can be seen that OEMs are aggressively promoting the prevalence of telematics and low- and medium-end car models see a growing installation rate of telematics, which is naturally welcomed by the consumers.
Telematics is technically heading towards intelligence and networking, and the two technical routes are progressing simultaneously and making for a fusion. In respect of vehicle perception layer, the technological improvements are largely shown from novel automotive electronics and operating system. In the wake of technological advancements, automotive electronics are developing towards functional integration of sensors, high-performance computing chip and new human-computer interaction. The automotive operating system is gearing from single function towards the intelligent tiered, modularized and platform-based development.
