December 2013: iGR Study Examines the Increasing Bandwidth Demand of the Connected Car Market in the U.S.

Connected car solutions, which require the availability of a broadband service, are becoming increasingly popular in the U.S., where consumers are reliant on their automobiles, as well as their smartphones and tablets. Over the five-year period between 2012 and 2017, the number of connected cars in the U.S. is expected to grow at a CAGR of 142% as new applications become more readily available in cars.

These connected car solutions will increase the bandwidth demand on an already congested 3G/4G mobile data network. Thus, U.S. operators will need to continue to build out their LTE infrastructure, not only to keep up with U.S. consumers’ smartphone and tablet usage, but also to provide sufficient capacity and coverage for the growing connected car market. A further challenge is that in-car data use will primarily occur at commuting times, which are already peak mobile data usage times.
