The automotive electronic devices market is comprised of five categories - global positioning systems (GPS), automotive video devices, in-dash players, satellite radio, and radar detectors. Strong growth is expected within the automotive video device category, while the satellite radio and radar detection segments are expected to be stagnant or to shrink.
Overall growth of the automotive electronic device market can be attributed to several factors, including new emerging display technologies, increasing consumer desire for real-time data, shrinking semiconductor technology, and the rise of the Asian consumer base.
The report is useful to a broad reader base, and specifically benefits consumer electronics industry insiders, automotive product marketing and management, business and venture executives in the technology industry, and finance and investment professionals looking for information that can aid in their decision-making.
