The system interacts with various environments to provide riders with riding info such as road navigation, vehicle warnings, and others.
The growth of the market is heavily influenced due to the safety regulations imposed by various governments to improve road infrastructure and increase vehicle safety on roads. However, many regions are yet to mandate this technology, which might slow product adoption during the initial years of the forecast period. Due to Europe's stringent road and driving safety regulations, many regions are expected to adopt similar rules, which is projected to drive the market globally.
Temporary Shutdowns Led to Reduced R&D Projects Leading to a Slower Adoption of Connected Motorcycle Technology
The unprecedented outbreak of COVID-19 led to temporary lockdowns across all the continents to contain the spread of the virus. The shutdown of various businesses due to the pandemic affected the revenue generation capacity of various companies along with a disrupted supply chain of procurement and distribution of various products. The automotive industry was no different as it underwent similar situations leading to various capital and funding cuts for numerous R&D projects, including connected technology. The connected motorcycle market growth also suffered as private and commercial vehicle owners redirected their investments to recover losses.
However, the post-pandemic situations created lucrative opportunities as many automotive businesses shifted toward gaining stability and control to restore the market position and supply chain management. The pandemic provided OEMs and auto-tech suppliers the opportunity to recuperate a better growth strategy. This led to new product launches and the integration of newer vehicle technologies such as connected vehicle technology, autonomous driving solutions, electrification, and others.

Due to rapid urbanization, most of the population prefers living in urban locations due to the ease of accessibility and connectivity of urban areas and metro cities. However, this has led to a mass shift in the urban city population, leading to more vehicles and motorcycles on the road. This resulted in congested roads and long traffic hauls.
Besides, an increasing number of people switched toward a cheaper, more efficient, and mobile mode of commuting by opting for motorcycles and scooters. This resulted in a high demand for two-wheelers in densely populated areas such as Asian and some European countries, with growing demand for nimble commutation and connected vehicle technology. Owing to these factors, urban areas are set to emerge as a growing market for connected bike technology during the forecast period.
Potential Risks of Data Hacks and Unrestricted Data Access Issues May Restrain Market Growth
The connected vehicle technology has proven to greatly benefit vehicles, improving the overall driving experience while enhancing road safety conditions. However, this has created a new issue that automakers struggle to address. Within connected vehicle technology, vehicles interact with various environments passing and collecting information. Under certain conditions, if the data stored in the vehicle is not secured and protected, it is left exposed to potential data hacks and unauthorized access to personal information stored on the motorcycle or vehicles.
Various cases of vehicle data hacks and unrestricted data access to the vehicle have hampered the adoption rate of connected vehicle technology in vehicles. They are expected to restrain the market growth. However, increased efforts from automakers and connected vehicle technology providers toward strengthening data protection security are expected to reduce the impact of this restraint during the forecast period.
Growing Demand for Advanced Technologies in Connected Vehicles to Drive the Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) Segment
Based on communication type, the market is bifurcated into Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) and Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I).
In 2022, the Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) segment held the largest share in the global market. The demand is attributed to the growing integration of V2V technologies in vehicles and motorcycles. Vehicle-to-vehicle communication allows vehicles and motorcycles to communicate and exchange data with each other over short ranges, reducing the risk of potential fatalities and road accidents. The implementation of V2V technologies is expected to reduce road fatalities and drive the market demand during the forecast period.
The Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The market growth is attributed to the rising adoption and development of connected infrastructure in metro cities and major European economies. Moreover, the growing government initiatives toward enhanced road safety issues are expected to propel the global market.
Growing Demand for V2V applications to Fuel the Market for DSRC Network Type
Based on network type, the market is divided into cellular and Dedicated Short Range Communication (DSRC).
The Dedicated Short Range Communication (DSRC) segment dominated the connected motorcycle market share owing to soaring demand for several vehicle-to-vehicle applications. The DSRC network allows the motorcycle to interact with other vehicles and the rider’s smart devices to display information on the instrument cluster.
The cellular segment is expected to hold an appreciable share due to the long-range ability of cellular network communication delivering at higher speeds compared to DSRC. As vehicle-to-infrastructure applications develop, it is expected that the cellular network would grow significantly during the forecast period.
