The Connected Car

IHS Markit forecasts that by 2023, worldwide sales of connected cars will reach 72.5 million units, up from 24 million units in 2015. That means, in just over eight years, almost 69% of passenger vehicles sold will be exchanging data with external sources, bringing new services and business models to bear in automotive markets.

Autonomous vehicles represent another major force transforming the industry. IHS Markit forecasts total global sales of self-driving cars will reach 21 million in the year 2035, up from nearly 600,000 units in 2025. Between now and 2035, therefore, nearly 76 million vehicles with some level of autonomy will be sold globally.

Which countries, cities, OEMs and suppliers are leading the way? A wide variety of players is impacting the space.
