The global OBD II automotive aftermarket is witnessing rapid growth; original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) are continuously investing in and acquiring dongle suppliers that are relevant to their businesses. Frost & Sullivan segments the ecosystem into dongle suppliers, Internet and connectivity, and service enablers. This study focuses on key sub-segments on the lines of the aftermarket, tier 1s, OEMs, mobile carriers, telecoms, and platform enablers. Start-ups and OEMs wish to enter this market. OEMs are likely to gain higher proliferation from new vehicles enabled with embedded telematics, but OBD dongle-based solutions are expected to record quicker growth in North America due to the older parc. The adoption of OBD II dongles is likely to grow from 5.5 million in 2016 to 27.8 million in 2023 in North America. Europe is likely to adopt a pro-embedded stand post the 2020 mandate, which will dampen OBD dongle penetration. The adoption of dongles in Europe is likely to grow from 0.9 million in 2016 to 4.1 million in 2023. OBD II dongle proliferation is heavily dependent on distribution channels and channel enablers such as garages, mechanics, and retailers. Deploying last-mile services for consumers and providing well-rounded services are the key to overall product success. OBD II-based aftermarket solutions depend on retail and auto repair shops for their market penetration. Government policies, safety regulations, and real-world behavior are likely to create ripples in the overall OBD II dongle aftermarket.
