Forecast Summary

The number of connected vehicles in service will reach 367 million globally in 2027, from 192 million in 2023. This growth of 91% will be driven by the advancement of both ADAS and increasing the capabilities of in-vehicle infotainment systems. 5G’s high speed and low-latency capabilities will be transformative to these goals, requiring effective collaborations between automotive OEMs and operators to realise.

• Operators are critical to unlocking new use cases, such as autonomous driving and data-heavy infotainment, via 5G, representing a $3.6 billion opportunity for providing 5G connectivity enablement in 2027 globally.

• 5G can allow automotive OEMs to upgrade the in-vehicle experience. In a vehicle market transitioning to electric vehicles, improving the user experience is key. Operators hold the critical role in enabling this in a reliable way, making them the partners of choice as their 5G networks rapidly expand.

• By 2027, commercial vehicles will only account for 20% of connected vehicles worldwide, representing a small increase from 16% by the end of 2023. Commercial vehicle design is not leveraging connectivity beyond simple emergency call features and basic connected infotainment systems, although this is changing, as businesses prioritise tracking and logistics capabilities.

• Accordingly, automotive OEMs should prioritise integrations with common fleet tracking systems out of the factory to maximise the benefits of connectivity, and to enable commercial fleet owners to maximise efficiency in their processes.
