This market research study identifies Wireless Power Consortium (WPC), Powermat Technologies, and Qualcomm Technologies as the leading players in the global in-car wireless charging system market. A comprehensive analysis of this market is also presented by end-user (aftermarket and OEM-fitted) and by geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA).

Overview of the global in-car wireless charging system market

The rise in per capita disposable income is encouraging general population to spend on luxury vehicles. Research analysis on the global in-car wireless charging system market identifies that the rising sales volume of luxury vehicles will be one of the major factors that will have a positive impact on the growth of the market. Also, the unemployment rate in the US has decreased in the past 5 years, which in turn, will improve the economic health. As a result, the penetration of luxury vehicles will also increase. The movement of people from rural to urban and semi-urban areas in various countries such as the US, the UK, Germany, Italy, France, China will further drive the adoption of luxury vehicles. This in turn, will fuel the need for in-car wireless charging system in these vehicles. Technavio’s market research analysts predict that by volume, this market will grow at a CAGR of close to 44% by 2021.

The preference for luxury cars is increasing because they offer comfort and safety for the purpose of long distance travelling. Also, it was observed that more than 80% of the in-car WCS market comprised of luxury cars during 2015. As a result, the rising frequency of long distance travelling is identified as one of the key trends that will propel the growth prospects for the global in-car wireless charging system market during the predicted period. It has been observed that about 55% of the long-distance trips are for pleasure. This triggers the demand for luxury cars, which in turn, will create the need for in-car WCS.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The in-car wireless charging system market is characterized by the presence of many vendors. The majority of these vendors are startups that invented WCS technology and developed their own WCS standards. Later, they entered the in-vehicle wireless charging market to offer wireless charging solutions. Some of these vendors also develop WCS solutions by adopting WCS standards of key vendors. Furthermore, the trend for large volume sales with partnerships from automakers will strengthen the competitive environment of the market.

Key vendors in this market are -

  • Wireless Power Consortium (WPC)
  • Powermat Technologies
  • Qualcomm Technologies

Other prominent vendors in the market include Mojo Mobility, PowerbyProxi, and Put2Go.

Segmentation by end-user and analysis of the in-car wireless charging system market

  • Aftermarket
  • OEM-fitted

Consumers are looking for OEM-fitted WCS as an add-on package in mid-premium and luxury vehicles. OEM-fitted WCS enable consumers to charge their device wirelessly. For instance, Audi has Qi wireless charging solution built into its phone box system. Any gadget placed on charging pad can be charged wirelessly. OEMs are also providing WCS-enabled phone cases or covers for smartphones that are not yet compatible with wireless car charger. For instance, Audi and BMW have developed their own Qi-compatible cases or covers and have included them in their WCS add-on package. This in turn, will boost growth in the in-vehicle wireless charging market in the OEM-fitted segment in the coming years.
