e-Commerce & Contactless Spur Last Mile Delivery Growth to a 15% Global CAGR from 2020-2025

Double-digit e-commerce growth and a continued desire for contactless delivery have fostered healthy growth of local delivery options, despite slower growth for other commercial transportation verticals.

After Hardware Shipments Drop 28% in 2020, Automakers Look to Niche Applications for the Aftermarket's Lifeline

Sales and revenues in the aftermarket for automotive applications have been threatened by almost ubiquitous OEM embedded systems, free smartphone applications that replace automotive hardware (e.g., Waze), and inadequate retail strategies. After a drop of 28% in 2020, fostered by the COVIID-19 pandemic, aftermarket hardware shipments will grow by only 12% until 2026, finds ABI Research.

"The aftermarket landscape is undergoing a transformation. Multi-application devices struggle to deliver value to the consumer and are dying out, giving place to low-cost dedicated hardware that fulfills niche customer requirements not addressed by OEM embedded systems or smartphones. Naturally, niche applications have a lower market opportunity. Thus, the aftermarket will experience market shrinking in the coming years, with more favorable circumstances in emerging economies,” explains Maite Bezerra, Smart Mobility & Automotive Research Analyst
