Connected cars provide a strong revenue stream and avenue to build consumer loyalty, finds Frost & Sullivan's Intelligent Mobility team
SÃO PAULO, Dec. 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Latin America (LATAM) will have over 8.5 million connected cars on the road by 2023. Increasing in-vehicle connectivity to enable value-added services, infotainment and next-generation human-machine interface features will encourage partnerships across the value chain that offer connected solutions. This, in turn, will propel the penetration of connected car solutions and drive innovation and novel revenue streams across the region.
"The automotive value chain is looking to value-added, real-time remote services; vehicle diagnostics; emergency and crash assistance; and concierge services to influence consumer loyalty and build revenue streams," said Frost & Sullivan Intelligent Mobility Program Manager Yeswant Abhimanyu. "Original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) are shifting to a free trial and renewal subscription business model to attract customers and edge out competition."
