HONG KONG, Sept 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The car navigation systems market in three ASEAN countries – Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand – is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 17.2 per cent (2011-2018) to reach 2.08 million units in 2018, says Frost & Sullivan.
Mr. Firhan Nair, Consulting Analyst, Automotive Practice, Asia Pacific at Frost & Sullivan said that personal navigation devices (PNDs) are expected to dominate the ASEAN navigation systems market.
New analysis from Frost & Sullivan (http://www.automotive.frost.com) Strategic Growth Opportunities in Navigation Systems Market in ASEAN finds that PND segment had a market share of 93 per cent in 2011, and will remain as the preferred device in the future.
"However, the segment's share is expected to drop, as consumers are slowly shifting towards embedded type navigation systems due to convenience and aesthetics. The introduction of android phones and tablets that offer free navigational applications is also acting as a restraint for the overall navigation systems market," Mr. Nair said.
He added that OEMs are currently offering navigation systems for higher grade models within the vehicle line-ups, but not all brands offer such systems. He added that OE and dealer fitments only accounted for 7 per cent of total navigation systems market in 2011.
Mr. Nair said that luxury brands such as BMW and Mercedes-Benz have standardized their offering of navigation systems across majority vehicle line-ups. Other brands are beginning to recognize this as a unique selling feature, he added.
He also said that the aftermarket segment will remain the dominant segment of the navigation systems market due to lower costs.
