The global in-vehicle payment services market size was valued at USD 5.36 billion in 2022 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 12.1% from 2023 to 2030. In-vehicle payment services allow drivers to order and pay for food, coffee, gasoline, groceries, parking slots, and tolls without having to step out of the vehicle. Advancements in the Internet of Things (IoT) technology and the efforts being pursued aggressively by various automakers to integrate new, advanced infotainment solutions in their vehicle models are expected to drive the growth of the market over the forecast period. The growing preference for contactless payment methods in the wake of the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic and continued innovations in smart vehicles also bode well for the growth of the market.
Various payment solution providers, including MasterCard, Visa, and PayPal, are partnering with automakers around the world to develop and integrate new payment processes and methods in vehicles. Several automobile manufacturers such as Volkswagen AG, Honda Motor Co. Ltd., and Ford Motor Co. have also developed in-vehicle payment solutions and platforms. The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has taken a severe toll on the global economy. Supply chains were disrupted and manufacturing activities at several production facilities were suspended temporarily owing to the lockdowns and other restrictions imposed by various governments in different parts of the world as part of the efforts to contain the spread of coronavirus. Nevertheless, the social distancing norms being advocated by various governments and the growing preference among individuals for contactless payments to avoid any potential coronavirus exposure are expected to contribute to the growth of the market over the forecast period.
Automobile manufacturers are focusing on developing built-in systems, including voice-based controls, which can potentially allow drivers to shop while driving without compromising road safety norms. Given that a voice-activated dashboard can divert the driver’s attention, drivers have to always prioritize road safety if they are catering to their shopping needs while driving. A study conducted at the University of Utah has already revealed that speech-to-text technology can cause a high level of cognitive disruption since extra effort is required to chat with a dashboard rather than speaking to an individual. At this juncture, advances in self-driven and connected car technologies would play a vital role in driving the growth of the market over the forecast period.
The growing adoption of driver support systems is also projected to drive the growth of the in-vehicle payment services market over the forecast period. Driver support systems help drivers in various ways, including hassle-free parking and making purchases from the control panel without having to use any other devices or cards to complete the purchase.
The credit/debit card segment accounted for the largest market share of 53.2% in 2022. Debit cards and credit cards remain the most popular payment modes and are used extensively to make contact and contactless payments. The growing preference for card and cardless transactions and post cash transactions among individuals belonging to various age groups is expected to contribute to the growth of the market over the forecast period.
The app/e-wallet segment is estimated to register the fastest CAGR of 13.1% from 2023 to 2030. The rising popularity of digital payment methods and the convenience and ease associated with wallet payments are particularly encouraging individuals to adopt in-vehicle payment services, thereby contributing to the growth of the market. As such, several apps or wallets, including Amazon Pay, Google Pay, AliPay, Apple Pay, Venmo, and Samsung Pay, among others, are being widely used for making payments. Meanwhile, Amazon and Google have linked their intelligent virtual assistants to their respective payment portals and e-wallets as part of the efforts to help consumers in shopping and making payments interactively.
The gas & charging station segment accounted for a significant revenue share of around 27.5% in 2022. This is attributed to the increasing adoption of electric vehicles (EVs), the growing popularity of contactless payments, and the increasing availability of in-vehicle payment technology. Connected cars, new payment technologies, and increasing competition among payment providers are also driving the growth of this market.
The parking segment is projected to register the fastest CAGR of 14.3% from 2023 to 2030. The growing number of passenger and commercial vehicles is particularly expected to contribute to the growth of the parking segment over the forecast period. The data published by OICA revealed that the sales of commercial vehicles in China increased 18.7% over the year in 2020. The increasing number of passenger and commercial vehicles drives the demand for parking spaces. Adapting in-vehicle payment services in the parking spaces will assist in reducing long queues at these spaces.
North America accounted for a market share of around 39.3% in 2022. The region has the maximum penetration of connected cars. Moreover, technology companies, including Apple Inc. and Google Inc., which are based in North America, have also entered the automotive market with their capabilities to innovate and compete with the automotive companies.
The Asia Pacific regional market is projected to register the highest CAGR of 13.4% from 2022 to 2030. The growing population and the rising levels of disposable income are expected to contribute to the growth. Adoption of the latest, advanced technologies and continued innovations in the way payments are made and processed would also play a vital role in driving growth over the forecast period.
The leading players in the market are undertaking strategies such as product developments, mergers and acquisitions, strategic partnerships, and business expansions to maintain their stronghold on the market. For instance, in June 2023, Mercedes-Benz launched Mercedes Pay, a new service that allows customers in the U.S. to use their vehicles as a device for booking and paying for off-street parking. Mercedes Pay is integrated with the Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) infotainment system, which allows drivers to find and book parking spaces, and then automatically pay for them when they arrive.
In July 2023,Car IQ, a provider of vehicle management systems, collaborated with Visa to introduce a vehicle wallet that allows drivers to make payments directly to Visa network shops and banks. Car IQ pay vehicle wallet can be used to make payments for fuel, tolls, parking, insurance, service, and repairs.
In January 2020, Amazon stated that customers can now use Amazon Alexa for fuel payment at all 11,500 Exxon and Mobil stations in the U.S. The transaction is to be conducted by Amazon Pay and powered by Fiserv, a financial services technology provider.
