Consumers should be able to receive up-to the minute, relevant content and services (such as Spotify’s music services) in the same manner they have come accustomed to with their smartphones.

The involvement of Facebook, TripAdviser and Spotify at this year’s event is evidence that infotainment has been promoted to be the key priority for the connected car market with both connected navigation and multimedia streaming being crucial features in today’s generation of passenger vehicle. Global connected automotive infotainment system shipments are expected to grow from 5.7 million in 2012 to 50.9 million in 2017 (ABI Research), making this a crucial time for automotive content acquisition strategies.

Content & Applications signifies a key paradigm shift for the telematics industry

Emily Savage, Strategic Director at Telematics Update says, “For the past few years we have seen the telematics industry endeavour to secure its position within the automotive space. This has now been widely achieved and the next step is to transform the vehicle into a valuable part of the connected consumers’ life. Consumers should be able to receive up-to the minute, relevant content and services (such as Spotify’s music services) in the same manner they have come accustomed to with their smartphones. The main challenge with this is to determine how to monetise the content to receive maximum ROI.”

Content & Applications for Automotive Europe 2013 will discuss:

  •     The App Opportunity - Make those anticipated automotive app revenues a reality over the coming years
