T-BOX Passenger Car Survey: T-Box OEM Installation Rate Will Reach 83.5% in China in 2025

Global and China Passenger Car T-Box Market Report 2022 summarizes and analyzes passenger car T-Box installations and installation rates China and the world, T-Box suppliers, T-Box development trends and the configuration of the app remote control function of new models launched by OEMs.

Passenger car T-Box is developing towards:

  • T-Box OEM install rate reaches 83.5% in China in 2025;
  • 5G C-V2X T-Box Grabs More Market Shares;
  • Automotive Ethernet is expected to replace CAN bus and FlexRay will become the main connection mode of T-Box;
  • Remote vehicle control by mobile apps is getting smarter (AVP, etc.).

Mainly used for communication between the vehicle and the Internet of Vehicles (IoV) service platform, T-Box acts as the core hardware of OEM telematics.

In 2021, 12.94 million T-Box passenger cars were installed by OEMs in China, a year-over-year increase of 31%; the installation rate reached 60%, an increase of about 10 percentage points from last year. By 2025, more than 20 million passenger cars will be equipped with T-Box, and the installation rate will rise to 83.5%, and. T-Box and telematics are becoming increasingly indispensable for passenger cars.

In 2021, 6.301 million passenger cars from Chinese automakers were equipped with T-Box, a year-over-year peak of 59.9%; This was done by 6.634 million passenger cars from automakers in joint ventures, up 12.9% year-over-year. Chinese OEMs are making much faster progress in vehicle internet than JV brands.

T-Box passenger car installations will continue to rise, as will the installation rate, and the internet of passenger car vehicles will continue to gain popularity, contributed by strong consumer demand for Intelligent Connected Vehicles (ICVs), the sharp increase in new energy vehicle sales (NEV), OEMs’ needs for FOTA, as well as regulatory requirements and other factors.

Top 10 OEMs have 64% market share

Seen from the market structure, the top 10 T-Box suppliers in China together held 64% market shares in 2021, with LG, Lanyou Technology and Neusoft at the top. Among them, Lanyou Technology, founded in 2002 with DFS Industrial Group holding 80% stake, mainly supplies T-Box products to Nissan and Dongfeng Motor. Lanyou’s T-Box was installed in one million cars by 2021. Also in 2021, Neusoft operated 940,000 vehicles, mostly from Geely and Great Wall Motor. Thanks to Great Wall’s high sales, Neusoft witnessed burgeoning T-Box installations in 2021.

5G C-V2X T-Box Will See Rising Market Shares

In 2020, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of China (MIIT) has granted a network access license to two 5G T-Box models. In 2021, 19 5G T-Box models secured a network access license, accounting for 9.3%, an increase of 8 percentage points year-over-year. From January to March 2022, seven 5G T-Box models received a network access license. This number is expected to increase in the course of 2022. At the moment, 4G T-Box still prevails, but in time it will gradually be replaced by 5G T-Box.

T-Box suppliers vigorously develop T-Box products that integrate 5G, C-V2X, high-precision positioning and other functional modules to create differentiated benefits. From March 2022A total of 25 5G T-Box models had obtained a network access license, including one from Samsung Harman, one from Lear, six from Neusoft, three from Datang Gohigh, two from DIAS, two from Huawei, two from JOYNEXT, two from China Mobile IoT , one from HiRain Technologies, one from Lanyou Technology, one from YF Tech, one from China TSP, one from TAGE and one from Chelutong Technology (Chengdu) Co., Ltd.

Lanyou Technology mass-produced its 5G C-V2X T-Box August 2021. It is based on 5G and provides high bandwidth, integrates 5G, C-V2X and centimeter-level positioning, supports only 5G and 5G+V2X dual mode, and enables at least 25 C-V2X application scenarios. Lanyou, in partnership with Huawei, Qualcomm, MTK, UNISOC and other platforms, now has 5G T-Box customers such as Dongfeng Voyah, Aeolus, Nissan and Venucia.

Neusoft’s 5G C-V2X T-Box supports 16 application scenarios based on three mainstream platforms and V2X national standards, and supports 5G NSA/SA communications, L1+L5 GNSS global positioning, Gigabit Ethernet technology, C-V2X communications, CANFD communication, LIN communication, Bluetooth 5.0+ communication, WiFi 6 communication, RKE, TPMS communication and ETC, etc. In 2021, Neusoft’s 5G (V2X) BOX was massively available on New Great Wall Haval H6, ZEEKR 001 and other models.

HiRain Technologies adopts AP+NAD+MCU architecture for its 5G T-Box, supports multiple platforms (such as Qualcomm, MTK) and presents various forms such as stand-alone type, smart antenna type and integration of multiple communication modules. Functional interfaces include 5G SA/NSA, C-V2X, CAN/CANFD, Gigabit Ethernet, dual-band GNSS, WiFi6, Bluetooth 5.2, USB, etc., and can also support TPMS, ETC, swap control, Bluetooth key (scalable UWB ) integrate ) and the like. For intelligent driving, centimeter-level positioning, parking lot/vehicle AVP, 10 Gigabit Ethernet high-speed channels and other services are available. Mass production for Dongfeng Voyah and other models has been achieved.

Some companies are also developing T-Box products that support 5G C-V2X. For example, the 5G T-Box being developed by Flaircomm Microelectronics will be compatible with mainstream 5G SOC solutions at home and abroad, and SA/NSA network technology, 5G V2X technology, centimeter-level positioning, Gigabit Automotive Ethernet and CAN FD support bus. technology.

Meanwhile, OEMs have started mounting 5G C-V2X technology on more and more new models. For example, SAIC Marvel R is equipped with 5G V2X i-BOX, an amalgamation of 5G, V2X and high-precision positioning; GAC Aion V, equipped with Huawei MH5000 5G module, features a 100M transmission channel and enables intelligent driving with C-V2X.

Automotive Ethernet is expected to replace CAN bus and FlexRay will become the main connection method of T-Box

New car functions (such as automatic parking system, lane departure detection system, blind spot detection and advanced infotainment system) place higher demands on new data bus transmission.

With the release of the new Ethernet protocol in 2021, automotive Ethernet is expected to replace CAN bus and FlexRay and become the main connection method of T-Box due to its low cost, low power consumption, low electromagnetic radiation and strong scalability, significantly speeding up firmware and software updates and calibrations, while reducing downtime caused by vehicle system updates. BMW and GM have confirmed that they will replace the CAN bus with 10BASE-T1S in their next-generation cars.

To date, the T-Box products of leading Chinese players (Lanyou Technology, Neusoft, Flaircomm Microelectronics, HiRain Technologies, etc.) have integrated Gigabit Ethernet to efficiently handle a universe of data from intelligently connected vehicles in the future.
