Global and Chinese Automotive Audio and Infotainment Industry Report


DUBLIN, Apr. 02, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Global and Chinese Automotive Audio and Infotainment Industry Report" report to their offering.


In 2013, global infotainment market size approximated US$30.1 billion, an increase of 4.2% from a year earlier; and the decelerated growth was due to the sluggish European automotive market and lower infotainment prices. The market is expected to restore growth from the next year, with the size up 12.2% to US$33.8 billion in 2014, US$40.1 billion in 2015 and US$45.6 billion in 2016.

Infotainment market growth is largely because its increased and upgraded functions have greatly raised price. High-end infotainment map will be upgraded to 3D map, with display up from 6-8 inches to 10-12 inches, and rear-seat entertainment system will be more popular, also accompanied by the adding of 3G or 4G network connection as well as the mushrooming of corresponding smart phone APPs.

Infotainment will also see qualitative leap i.e. added by advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS); thus HUD system is bound to be added in the future, which will significantly improve the cost, but also means instrument cluster companies need to collaborate with infotainment vendors. Japan's Aisin AW and DENSO, U.S. Visteon and Delphi, Germany's Continental and South Korea's Mobis all have instrument cluster business, showing obvious future edges.

The massive prevalence of smart phones enables automotive infotainment to undergo a reform, 3G or 4G network connection will greatly improve automotive infotainment prices. At present, there are two camps for automotive networking, one of them is led by vehicle manufacturers, represented by GENIVI, whose founding members include Volvo, BMW, FAW, GM, HONDA, HYUNDAI, JAGUAR, JOHNDEER, NISSAN, PSA, RENAULT and SAIC. GENIVI uses general purpose platform, may be Linux with open-type application programming interface, high cost, high safety, long development cycle, infotainment embedded with 3G or 4G network connectivity, and the service charge will be high.

Another camp is led by smart phone vendors like MirrorLink and MHL. MirrorLink, jointly launched by three well-known mobile phone vendors - Nokia, Samsung and LG, six automakers - Daimler, General Motors, Honda, Hyundai, Toyota and Volkswagen, as well as two system suppliers - Alpine Electronics and Panasonic, embeds APP in phone and infotainment, connected by USB or WiFi, with very short development cycle, low cost, and a large number of products have been rolled out into the market. There is simpler MHL League, co-founded by Nokia, Samsung, Sony, Toshiba and Silicon Image, with higher transmission rate and lower prices.

You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”

Clearly the way forward is to move to cloud be it bare metal, VMs or containers. One aspect of the current public clouds that is slowing this cloud migration is cloud lock-in. Every cloud vendor is trying to make it very difficult to move out once a customer has chosen their cloud. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Naveen Nimmu, CEO of Clouber, Inc., will advocate that making the inter-cloud migration as simple as changing airlines would help the entire industry to quickly adopt the cloud wit...
As the world moves towards more DevOps and microservices, application deployment to the cloud ought to become a lot simpler. The microservices architecture, which is the basis of many new age distributed systems such as OpenStack, NetFlix and so on, is at the heart of Cloud Foundry - a complete developer-oriented Platform as a Service (PaaS) that is IaaS agnostic and supports vCloud, OpenStack and AWS. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Raghavan "Rags" Srinivas, an Architect/Developer Evangeli...
In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tony Shan, Chief Architect at CTS, will explore the synergy of Big Data and IoT. First he will take a closer look at the Internet of Things and Big Data individually, in terms of what, which, why, where, when, who, how and how much. Then he will explore the relationship between IoT and Big Data. Specifically, he will drill down to how the 4Vs aspects intersect with IoT: Volume, Variety, Velocity and Value. In turn, Tony will analyze how the key components of IoT ...
When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT’s direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Buildi...
DevOps is gaining traction in the federal government – and for good reasons. Heightened user expectations are pushing IT organizations to accelerate application development and support more innovation. At the same time, budgetary constraints require that agencies find ways to decrease the cost of developing, maintaining, and running applications. IT now faces a daunting task: do more and react faster than ever before – all with fewer resources.

VividCortex is the first unified suite of database monitoring tools specifically desi...
Organizations already struggle with the simple collection of data resulting from the proliferation of IoT, lacking the right infrastructure to manage it. They can't only rely on the cloud to collect and utilize this data because many applications still require dedicated infrastructure for security, redundancy, performance, etc. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Emil Sayegh, CEO of Codero Hosting, will discuss how in order to resolve the inherent issues, companies need to combine dedicated a...
Mobile, social, Big Data, and cloud have fundamentally changed the way we live. “Anytime, anywhere” access to data and information is no longer a luxury; it’s a requirement, in both our personal and professional lives. For IT organizations, this means pressure has never been greater to deliver meaningful services to the business and customers.
Recently announced Azure Data Lake addresses the big data 3V challenges; volume, velocity and variety. It is one more storage feature in addition to blobs and SQL Azure database. Azure Data Lake (should have been Azure Data Ocean IMHO) is really omnipotent. Just look at the key capabilities of Azure Data Lake:
Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical...
As-a-service models offer huge opportunities, but also complicate security. It may seem that the easiest way to migrate to a new architectural model is to let others, experts in their field, do the work. This has given rise to many as-a-service models throughout the industry and across the entire technology stack, from software to infrastructure. While this has unlocked huge opportunities to accelerate the deployment of new capabilities or increase economic efficiencies within an organization, i...
Culture is the most important ingredient of DevOps. The challenge for most organizations is defining and communicating a vision of beneficial DevOps culture for their organizations, and then facilitating the changes needed to achieve that. Often this comes down to an ability to provide true leadership. As a CIO, are your direct reports IT managers or are they IT leaders? The hard truth is that many IT managers have risen through the ranks based on their technical skills, not their leadership ab...
