Increased adoption of connectivity and applications within cars could be beneficial to the companies that supply the underlying technology and components.

Curated by Motif Investing


The automotive industry is undergoing a transformational change with technology – it's no longer just about what's under the hood. From sensors and semiconductor chips to cameras and advanced electronic systems, the prospect of a self-driving car appears to be a matter of when, not if. With one-in-five cars expected to be equipped with wireless connectivity and real-time analytics by 2020, the opportunity for the automotive industry and its technology partners could be significant for capturing the imagination of the next generation of car enthusiasts.

What is now called the "Internet of Things" is a key driver for the connected car movement. For example, semiconductor components are expected to grow from $320 to over $400 per car in the next few years as it popularizes features like vehicle-to-vehicle communication, stolen vehicle recovery security, and in-car infotainment services.
