Do you have reports about how Apple and Google are trying to disrupt the automotive market?

Good day,

Thank you for contacting ReportLinker.  From our many reports, we have selected three reports that we hope will help you.

The first report is Apple in Cars – What Does It Mean For the Auto Industry and Google.  This 6 page study was originally published in January 2015 by Frost & Sullivan.  This report looks at the role Apple is set to play, following its announcement at the Geneva Motor Show that they will bring their technology to the world’s second most connected device.  This is the first time that Apple will work with third parties to incorporate their technology.  One in every second new car is expected to be connected by 2020, which could have a significant impact on the industry.

The Internet of Cars was published by Frost & Sullivan in November 2015.  This 57 page study looks at the innovations that the internet of things will bring to cars and how it will affect governments, consumers, manufacturers and dealers.  It also looks into the infrastructure that will be required to implement connected cars.  It investigates the tier one suppliers and the challenges they face, as well as possible solutions.  Apple, Google and Uber are three non-traditional companies that are expected to have a huge impact on the automotive and transportation industries.  This is due to the dependence that modern automobiles have on electronics and information technology.

The final report is Frost & Sullivan’s Move Aside Apple and Google! Alibaba is Entering the Connected Car Space.  This 5 page report was published in March 2015.  Due to changing times, Alibaba and original equipment manufacturers are beginning to work together.  This is to help the manufacturers build a stringer digital presence.  GM, Volkswagon and Tesla have now joined a group of manufacturers that are selling through Alibaba’s business-to-customer platform, Tmail.  Alibaba have also partnered with SAIC Motors to develop an internet car.
