The broadband and connectivity harmonization offers ease in the manufacture of keyless entry system and will drive the growth prospects for the global automotive remote keyless entry system market until the end of 2021. Also, the adoption rate of RKE is increasing because a large number of regulatory bodies across the globe are taking initiatives to improve and standardize the safety measures even in the entry level vehicles. Since keyless entry systems communicate with vehicles through microwave or radio frequency, they could be hacked when smartphones or smartwatches that are employed to unlock or lock vehicle doors is stolen. As a result, the government has taken initiatives to standardize and impose quality requirements across the value chain to improve vehicle security.

The introduction of 3D gesture in key fob will drive the growth prospects for the global automotive remote keyless entry system market for the next four years. One of the major factors responsible for the growing preference for 3D gesture key fob is its ability to prevent the thief from unlocking the door without making the secret gesture on the key fob. This ability enhances the security of the system and adds other features into the system such as touchscreen ignition, remote fuel access, and GPS fencing.

Overview of the global automotive daytime running light (DRL) market

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global automotive daytime running light (DRL) market to grow steadily at a CAGR of around 8% by 2021. One of the key factors responsible for this market growth are the add-on safety benefits of DRL. DRLs increase the safety of vehicles during daytime and enhances vehicle conspicuity during poor weather conditions such as fog or mist. Drivers find these lights useful in low light conditions and allows them more time to react in case of an oncoming vehicle, thus reducing the chances of collisions. Furthermore, the automatic switch on capability of DRLs allows the drivers to distinguish between parked and moving vehicles.

In terms of geography, APAC accounted for the maximum market share during 2016 and will continue to dominate the market for the next few years. The rising demand for passenger cars and the rise in the demand for advanced features in vehicles are the key contributors to the market dominance of APAC in the DRL market. The growing demand for vehicles from countries such as China, South Korea, and India is attracting global automotive manufacturers to invest and operate in these countries. Other factors influencing the investments in the region are the growing population of the region, improvement in infrastructure, increase in construction activities, rising purchasing power, changing lifestyles and preferences, government initiatives, and reduced overall vehicle production costs. With cost-effective resources and funding, this region will continue to provide DSRs that are comparatively good and economical.

Overview of the global mobility scooters market

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global mobility scooters market to grow steadily at a CAGR of above 5% by 2021. One of the key drivers for the growth of this market is the increased adoption of technologically advanced and cost-efficient products. The rise in the adoption of electric drivetrain cars, scooters, and motorcycles, a wide range of electric drivetrain components such as battery packs, controllers, motors, and power electronics are available in the market today at low supplier costs. This has given the manufacturer of mobility products an opportunity to sell their offerings at lower costs in comparison to that in the previous years. The decline in cost will significantly increase the rate of adoption of mobility scooter market in the coming years.

In terms of geography, the Americas accounted for the maximum market share during 2016 and will continue to dominate the market for the next few years. Factors such as, expanding older population base and the increasing awareness of new technologies in the healthcare sector are some of the key contributors to the growth of the mobility scooter market in the region. Moreover, favorable reimbursement policies and the effort toward reducing patient expenditures in the US and Canada aid in enhancing the adoption of mobility scooters in the region. For instance, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and the Older Americans Act (OAA) in the US, and the DTCC in Canada encourage the purchase of mobility scooters and will propel the growth of the market during the forecast

Overview of the global light- and heavy-duty natural gas vehicle (NGV) market

Market research analysts at Technavio predict that the global light- and heavy-duty NGV market will grow steadily during the next four years and in terms of units, will post a CAGR of more than 5% by 2021. This market research analysis identifies the higher fuel efficiency of natural gas trucks as one of the primary growth factors for this market. It has been observed that fuel prices account for almost 30% of the total acquisition cost of commercial vehicles. Though this induces fleet owners to prefer commercial vehicles with a reasonable engine horsepower and better fuel efficiency, fluctuating fuel prices make it difficult for fleet owners to forecast operational costs. This will result in the increased adoption of natural gas vehicles since the low cost of natural gas reduces the cost per mile of NGVs.

The introduction of multi-fuel engines will be one of the major factors that will gain traction in this market in the coming years. To overcome the shortcomings of a fuel type, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) will increasingly focus on the development of engines that are compatible with multiple fuels. Niyato Industries has already developed a tri-fuel system for the Ford F-150 which can operate using multiple fuels such as gasoline, compressed natural gas (CNG), and propanone.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The market is characterized by the presence of a considerable number of natural gas vehicle manufacturers and is fragmented. Market players who have a wide product portfolio and an enhanced geographical presence currently dominate the market. One of the major
