About this report

The keyless vehicle access market is segmented into remote keyless entry system (RKES), which performs the functions of a standard car key without physical contact, and passive keyless entry system (PKES), in which the user is not required to press a button to unlock and open the car. RKE and PKE are often combined with keyless go, entry and go systems, which further remove the need for the usual ignition lock. The automotive industry is witnessing an increasing demand for PKES that was earlier a part of high-end cars. 

The "Trends in keyless vehicle access control systems: passive entry system on the rise" study by IHS analyzes the original equipment (OE) light vehicle keyless vehicle access control system demand on the both global and regional basis from 2016 to 2023. It also recognizes the drivers and restraints that affect the industry and analyzes their impact over the forecast period. This study identifies the significant opportunities for market growth in the next few years and provides competitive analysis of players in the industry. The report entails technology trends, product innovations in recent past, future technology roadmap, growth plans of key players, and top OEMs' sourcing structure.
