Vehicle connectivity is expanding quickly, creating many chances for innovative new features and appealing business strategies. The risk of cyber-attacks on automotive networks is also rising at the same time. Cyber-attacks have resulted in financial losses and damage to vehicular safety and reliability.

With the incorporation of technologies like artificial intelligence, machine learning, private 5G, edge computing, and high-performance processing units, autonomous vehicles have made significant improvements recently. Edge computing assists autonomous EVs in managing a large amount of information at the edge to reduce latency and enable vehicles to make decisions based on data in real time.

Moreover, due to the adopting technologies, it is crucial for the suppliers and manufacturers in the automobile industry to adopt National Highway Traffic Safety Administration NHTSA's rules and prioritize vehicle cyber security. Setting internal procedures and policies to ensure systems will be secure in anticipated real-world circumstances, including the presence of potential vehicle cyber security threats, is another aspect of giving vehicle cyber security a high priority. The environment for automotive cyber security is dynamic and is anticipated to evolve frequently.

There are numerous cybersecurity vulnerabilities specific to the automobile sector. A vehicle's safety and advanced driver assistance systems could be damaged by cybercriminals, or even worse, they could alter any automated capabilities to directly cause a disaster. Security experts are concentrating on research and development on integrating defense mechanisms to counter the growing cyberattacks on EVs. Integrating a defense mechanism becomes a crucial design element as self-driving software and hardware characteristics undergo technical advancements.

The technology that connects driverless vehicles to the internet is typical with the help of a cloud platform. Connecting vehicles to the networks is dangerous. The attack surface grows as more vehicles are linked to the networks. In current scenarios, there is a surge in the installation of sensors and software used in automobiles. Connected automobiles gather data from more than 150 sensing devices placed all over the car. Everything may be tracked with it, including the user's driving habits and the location of the vehicle.

In the post-pandemic period, cyberattacks became more frequent and sophisticated due to the smart mobility ecosystem's ongoing progress. New attack avenues have been shown by financial and geopolitical concerns, and supply chains and these are anticipated to propel automotive and smart mobility players to increase their cybersecurity spending.

Application Insights

Based on application, the automotive cyber security market is segmented into ADAS & Safety System, Infotainment, Body Electronics, Powertrain, and Telematics. The infotainment segment dominated the market with a share of 36.27% in 2022 and is expected to expand at a significant growth rate during the forecast period.

To provide improved connection options, increase vehicle safety, and improve in-car user experience, the whole automotive sector is pushing toward developing innovative technologies. The "In-Vehicle Infotainment System" is one of the essential technologies that serve as the point of focus of all contemporary automotive systems and integrate their operations to be controlled and monitored from one central unit.

Furthermore, the ADAS & Safety System segment is likely to expand at a CAGR of 22.1% during the forecast period. With the help of ADAS technology, vehicles may operate in a way that is comparable to a driver monitoring the weather, spotting items on the road, and making a judgment in real time to increase safety. Automatic clutch control, driver monitoring, front pedestrian detection, and collision avoidance are some instances of ADAS capabilities.

The market is witnessing drastic developments in autonomous driving technologies, which are anticipated to increase demand for a continuous connection from the car's ECU to a number of cloud services that improve sensor processing and subsequent vehicle navigation.

Security Type Insights

Based on security insights, the market is segmented into endpoint, application, and wireless network security. Wireless network security dominated the market with a share of 42.5% in 2022. The Wi-Fi-based wireless system enables automotive experts to simultaneously monitor hundreds of data channels during test runs to track vehicle operational factors and alter the test as it is being performed. To support varied application circumstances, a modern vehicle contains many networks for information sharing, including wireless channels.

In the future, vehicles will support more complex wireless communication use cases as the automotive industry develops, hence it will be essential to consider constructing protected wireless technology based on a solid equipment foundation and software layers invented to secure software development methodologies.

In 2022, the application security segment accounted for a significant revenue share of 34.6% in the market. In recent years, it has become common for car OEMs to offer mobile applications that allow a smooth owner and user interface. These programs offer a wide range of functions, including the ability to start the car wirelessly, monitor the fuel level, and perform advanced inspections. Moreover, the invention of new mobile applications has embedded various leverages for vehicle users.

Vehicle Type Insights

Based on vehicle type, the market can be segmented into commercial vehicles, passenger cars, and Electric Vehicle (EV). In 2022, the EV segment led the market and is poised to expand at a CAGR of 28.57%. The market has expanded as a result of more individuals paying attention to economic development and realizing the drawbacks of driving hybrid vehicles. Additionally, local authorities from a number of areas are offering subsidies to promote the purchase of electric vehicles in anticipation of broader infrastructure development.

Energy and information technology advancements are changing how EVs produce, manage, store, and utilize energy. This has raised the chances that cyberattacks lead to negative effects. Electric and modern vehicles are more automated and linked, which has increased the risk of cybersecurity threats. Due to the proliferation of cyberattacks and managing this increasingly complicated environment, whether it is network security or in-vehicle security, the majority of OEMs and other significant electric vehicle operators rely on security. In the absence of knowledge or control, many firms also feel compelled to rely on independent producers and publicly accessible resources.

Service Insights

In 2022, the in-vehicle segment led the market, accounting for a revenue share of 69.57%. Technologies that enable connections between inside-vehicle systems and those found in external systems or remote are known as in-vehicle-connected services. The most linked device in the modern vehicle owing to its mobile connectivity. Automobile OEMs have had to adapt to rising consumer expectations and demands, which has led to increasingly more advanced technologies.
