Moreover, rising adoption of cellular modems in the automotive industry for connected vehicles in recent years is also expected to drive market revenue growth during the forecast period. Connected vehicles require reliable and fast Internet connectivity for a wide range of applications such as infotainment systems, telematics, navigation services, and over-the-air updates. Cellular modems enable these vehicles to access cellular networks, ensuring seamless connectivity and real-time communication. Advancements in cellular network technologies, such as the deployment of 5G networks, have further enhanced the capabilities and performance of cellular modems in connected vehicles.

For example, in February 2023, Qualcomm is setting new standards for connected car technologies through its latest Snapdragon Automotive 5G Platform. The second-generation Snapdragon Auto 5G Modem-RF Gen 2 platform offers significant advancements, including 50% increased processing power, 40% improved power efficiency, and over twice the maximum throughput compared to the previous generation. These result in enhanced connectivity that is secure, reliable, and seamless, raising the bar for connected car technologies.

However, regulatory barriers and limitations imposed by governments and telecommunication authorities is a key factor, which could restrain market revenue growth. These regulations often dictate spectrum allocation, licensing requirements, and technical standards, which vary across different regions and countries. Such stringent regulations create complexities and challenges for cellular modem manufacturers and service providers, hindering their ability to expand and operate smoothly in multiple markets.
