Competitive vendor landscape

The global market for automotive HDC consists of a few established players who have included HDC systems in the DAS package being provided to the automotive manufacturers. The competition in the market is expected to intensify in accordance with the stringent safety norms set by regulatory bodies across the globe and the rising awareness about vehicle safety among people. Developed economies like Europe, the Americas, and Japan will post the highest adoption rate owing to strict norms regarding the installation of ESC system, with HDC being an integral part of ESC. Developing economies are expected to show promising growth as the market penetration of ABS is increasing in the near future.

“At present, connected driving systems make use of dedicated short-range communications (DSRC) for vehicle-to-vehicle communications. However, the application of DSRC for vehicle-to-vehicle communication is limited due to inter-device compatibility issues. DSRC systems across the globe use different frequencies to communicate, ranging from infrared to almost 6 GHz frequency. This causes compatibility issues in vehicles from different geographical regions like the US, Europe, and Japan,” says Siddarth Jaiswal, a lead analyst at Technavio for automotive electronics.
