Vehicle Security & Access Systems
Brand new research on vehicle security and access systems

This exclusive new report from ABOUT Automotive updates and extends our first analysis of this sector, which was published in 2005. This new research looks at the ways in which the market for passive entry and other related technologies have developed.

In particular the report looks at the development of smart keys and additional features which the car companies have added to door latches and locking systems including power release, power close and developments in keyless entry.

The report also discusses the development of electronic latches and the problems with their adoption.

The report includes case studies of the locking systems on individual vehicles, such as the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, the first van to have remote keyless entry. It also describes how the vehicle security market has evolved in the last decade and where it might be heading.

Differences between Europe, North America and Japan are described, together with projections for take-up rates of new technologies.

The report also identifies the main suppliers in this market, analyses their product offerings and strategies ─ as well as their strengths and weaknesses. Market shares throughout the markets of Europe, North America and Japan are also provided.
