Analysts’ Viewpoint

Telematics is helping automakers, OEMs, and insurance carriers to rethink wireless communication after the COVID-19 crisis. As such, the automotive industry is anticipated to advance in a staggered manner over five years, which includes EVs as an integral part of their expansion plan. However, many OBD solutions only provide read access to emission-related data. Hence, companies in the automotive on-board diagnostics market should boost their R&D muscle to integrate both read and write access to vehicle owners for reprogramming the OBD device in order to efficiently rectify malfunctions. Cloud diagnostic managers facilitate over-the-air software updates to vehicles, and are anticipated to grab the attention of vehicle owners after Tesla gains popularity in the driverless cars sector.
