The Automotive Premium Audio Consumer Analysis is a consumer survey that sheds light on consumers’ attitudes toward infotainment features, autonomous cars and urban mobility, ADAS features, HMI, telematics, remote vehicle services, apps, and audio sources in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Germany, and China.

IHS Markit Consumer Survey reports and companion databases indicate that innovative technologies, new services, and increased connectivity are a key deciding factor when considering a new vehicle purchase. The surveys take input from more than 5,000 vehicle owners intending to purchase a new vehicle within the next 36 months, across five key automotive markets – the United States, Canada (NEW), China, Germany and the United Kingdom.  

Updated annually since 2013, IHS Markit offers three surveys of new car intenders:

  • Connected Services and Apps
  • Autonomous Driving and Urban Mobility
  • Premium Audio

The surveys enable you to

  • Understand which services are must-haves for consumers intending to purchase a new vehicle for personal use in the next three years
  • Gain an understanding on the propensity of consumers who would be willing to pay for these advanced technologies – and assess how much they would be willing to spend
  • Anticipate market needs for new solutions

Consumer Insight reports published before 2020 are published in downloadable PDF format.

For many consumers, listening to the in-vehicle audio system is an important part of the daily commute, whether catching up with the news, staying informed about weather/travel, or listening to music. For some, the quality of audio reproduction is not important; for others, it is paramount.
