Automotive Cybersecurity Market: Size, Trends & Scenario (2021–2026)

Automotive Cybersecurity Market by Form (In-Vehicle, External Cloud Services), Offering (Hardware & Software), Security, Application Type, Vehicle Type, Propulsion, Vehicle Autonomy, Approach, EV Application, and Region

The Global Automotive Cybersecurity Market size is projected to grow from $2.0 billion in 2021 to $5.3 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 21.3%.

Increasing incidents of cyber-attacks on vehicles and massive vehicle recalls by OEMs have increased awareness about automotive cybersecurity among OEMs globally. Moreover, increasing government mandates on incorporating several safety features, such as rear-view cameras, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning system, and electronic stability control, have further opened new opportunities for automotive cybersecurity service providers globally. As a result, there are various start-ups present in the automotive cybersecurity ecosystem. Government initiatives toward building an intelligent transport system have also further escalated the demand for cybersecurity solutions all over the world. Apart from this, the introduction of 5G technology is expected to accelerate the market growth in the coming years as well.

The Automotive Cybersecurity Market is dominated by global players such as Robert Bosch GmbH (Germany), Continental AG (Germany), Harman International (US), DENSO Corporation (Japan), Aptiv PLC (Ireland), Karamba Security (Israel), SafeRide Technologies (Israel), Arilou Technologies (Israel), GuardKnox Cyber Technologies Ltd. (Israel),  Upstream Security Ltd. (Israel), and Green Hills Software. 

The Asia pacific automotive cybersecurity market is projected to hold the largest share by 2026.

The Asia Pacific accounted for the largest share in 2021 in the automotive cybersecurity market. The increasing sales of mid-sized and luxury vehicles coupled with growing awareness of active and passive safety features are the key factors driving the automotive cybersecurity market in the Asia Pacific. Another key factor driving the market growth in this region is the large production of passenger vehicles, coupled with the increasing penetration of connected cars and other advanced technologies. China and India are considered manufacturing hubs for the automotive industry. According to the Organisation Internationale des Constructeurs d’Automobiles (OICA), China and India together produce approximately 30 million vehicles every year. With an increase in the production of vehicles, the demand for vehicle electronics is expected to increase. This, in turn, is expected to drive the growth of the automotive cybersecurity market in the region.

The growth of the connected vehicle market in the Asia Pacific region is expected to boost the demand for automotive cybersecurity. As the number of connected vehicles increases, the demand for cybersecurity in these vehicles would also increase. A key growth driver for the connected car technology in the Asia Pacific is the increased demand for infotainment and navigation services in China and India, where the demand for a better and connected driving experience is witnessing a rise. The Chinese government is committed to the growth of IoT with a great emphasis on the development of connected cars and has already invested more than USD 10 billion in the IoT industry since October 2010. The evolution of automotive telematics in Japan dates to 1997 when Toyota sold its first telematics solution in the country. The country has witnessed increasing sales of vehicles equipped with connected car features, which is expected to accelerate the growth of the automotive cybersecurity market.

The software segment is expected to dominate the global automotive cybersecurity market.

In terms of market share in the global automotive cybersecurity industry, the hardware to software ratio per vehicle is around 20:80. This is expected to change over the years with variations in hardware prices. Cybersecurity software inside the vehicle requires the implementation of a number of security functionalities such as secure protocols, identity and access management, intrusion detection, and abstraction layers for crypto functions. These functionalities are then used by the functional ECUs to secure communications and avoid the creation of backdoors. Therefore, the software segment is expected to hold the largest share in the automotive cybersecurity market during the forecast period globally.

Automotive Cybersecurity Market

Endpoint security is expected to be the fastest-growing security type in the global automotive cybersecurity market.

The endpoint security segment is expected to witness the fastest growth in Europe and the Asia Pacific during the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to the increased use of mirror link apps in these regions. Increasing safety and security concerns in these regions are also likely to propel the demand for endpoint security solutions. Presently, new vehicles contain approximately 100 million lines of code and are deployed with complex software by automobile manufacturers. To maintain the safety as well as security of a vehicle’s entire code base, OEMs are opting for endpoint security solutions. Moreover, the trend of a mobile workforce, BYOD, social media, and cloud synchronizing tools is expected to influence the expenditure on endpoint security solutions.
