The use of a center stack provides touch capabilities and vertical integration. The curved center stack display also enhances user experience with enhanced usability and cost-saving. The manufacturer providing different variants of infotainment systems, such as heads-up display infotainment systems and rear-seat infotainment systems, is another reason for market growth. Moreover, the integration of operating systems such as Windows, Android, and Linux in EV infotainment system are further propelling the market growth. The operating systems can support software downloads, updates, convenience functions, and connectivity. The implementation of cloud technologies, Artificial Intelligence, and the Internet of Things has created new avenues for market growth.

The COVID-19 pandemic has severely impacted industries worldwide, forcing authorities to enforce containment measures such as quarantine and lockdowns. The subsequent containment measures placed by governments crippled industries around the world. The production of the infotainment systems is directly dependent on the production of automobiles which affects the EV infotainment manufacturers negatively. The aggressive spread of the pandemic caused a fall in demand for automobiles affecting the demand for infotainment systems. In 2021, as the lockdown was lifted owing to vaccination efforts, the demand for automobiles experienced a surge. Still, the demand surge was met with a disrupted supply chain of semiconductor chips. Regardless of vehicle type, the semiconductor's chips are integral to the infotainment system. The absence of semiconductor chips resulted in a production timeline delay. Therefore, the COVID-19 pandemic and the repeated supply chain and production disruption caused a restriction in the growth of the EV infotainment market.

Greater inclination in recent years toward electric vehicles has resulted in considerable demand for the infotainment system. Infotainment system enables enhanced safety of the passengers, and integrated navigation system also provides real-time traffic updates, and feature of smartphone syncing, facilitates easy access to apps for music streaming and calling. The major infotainment manufacturers are introducing technologies that are aimed at enhancing user experience. These constant innovations in the product offering by the manufacturers is further driving the market growth. For instance, Continental AG provides the components required for a pleasant and enhanced user experience in the new BMW iX. The Continental's cockpit high-performance computer is incorporated in BMW's electric car pushing for vehicle digitalization. It maintains track of the cockpit's ever-growing functional scope and the increasing software complexity in EVs. The cockpit computer is responsible for numerous software functions which enable the infotainment system to offer new opportunities to provide a consistent and unique user experience. The BMW model can also support a heads-up display that will project the relevant information, such as navigation instructions, warning messages, and data, such as speed, and fuel level, among others on the car's windshield.

Cloud technology is transforming business across industries and the automotive industry also leverages the same to create a premium experience for end-users of electric vehicles. Car manufacturers like Volvo are leveraging innovative products by Qualcomm and Google for powering the infotainment system of Volvo electric SUV. The carmaker will be incorporating Qualcomm's Snapdragon digital chassis, a cloud platform that analyzes data from the vehicle for advanced display, audio, navigation, and connectivity. The cloud platform also supports wireless and bluetooth connectivity to enhance user experience. With the android automotive operating system of Google, the electric SUVs will have the google assistant feature with all the google apps. The collaboration among Volvo, Google, and Qualcomm is redefining the infotainment experience for the end-users of EV four-wheelers while impacting the market with technological applications.

The use of electric vehicles has steadily increased in recent years due to the demand for fuel efficiency and a range of development efforts like bodyweight reduction and improved efficiency of electronic circuits in automotive. In contrast, the elements like Universal Serial Bus (USB), Bluetooth, operating system, and larger screen size have increased the current consumption and power channel in high-end cars. The high consumption of power directly impacts the battery efficiency of EVs. Thus, High power consumption is a major hindrance for infotainment systems in EVs. Moreover, infotainment services include features such as vehicle diagnostics, live traffic visualization, satellite-view maps, and music streaming which are available in premium infotainment services based on monthly and yearly subscriptions with automobile manufacturers such as Tesla. But the cost of such a subscription coupled with the paid software upgrade cost is another restrain in the EV infotainment market growth.

System Type Insights

Based on system type, the EV infotainment market is segmented into multimedia systems, heads-up systems, navigation systems, driver safety, communication system, and rear system entertainment system.
