Research and Markets: Connected Vehicles: Market and Forecast for LTE and Telematics Applications 2014 - 2019

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/mwmmtd/connected) has announced the addition of the "Connected Vehicles: Market and Forecast for LTE and Telematics Applications 2014 - 2019" report to their offering.

The automobile industry is very competitive. The profitability on cars is slim with margins in the US as low as two percent on a new car. The large motor companies can make money by self-financing consumer deals. Dealerships hope to make money by promoting repair service packages, and offering extended warranties. The connected car is considered a gift because it is a new revenue stream, has a better margin than the car itself, and can be a differentiator between the cars themselves.

In the US, leading automobile manufacturers have committed to embedding cars with LTE in their product lines. For example, BMW makes an LTE/Wi-Fi adapter for their cars. Alcatel-Lucent, Verizon, and AT&T are proponents of the LTE-connected car. However, many new cars have embedded Wi-Fi, use GPS tracking, and have other forms of telematics. The full case for LTE is not yet realized.
