Automotive Digital Key Market Outlook 2030 -

The automotive industry is undergoing tremendous changes and is moving in direction of vehicle digitization. Manufacturers are developing automotive digital keys that provide more advanced features than traditional keys, such as enhanced driver safety features, connected cars, and keyless entry. Due to advantages such as improved car safety, popularity of car smart keys has increased significantly in the past decade. Features like high-end luxury cars are being applied in budget cars by companies, such as Honda, which are developing smart keys for budget cars. Use of lightweight and environmentally friendly materials to make internal chips and buttons of smart keys is becoming more and more popular. However, a research report from the University of Leuven in Belgium stated that due to loopholes in the security system, a car's digital key can be hacked and unlocked in a short time. For instance, on 28 August 2019, researchers successfully bypassed keyless entry system of a Tesla Model S with ease. Leap Motor introduced biological entry system with the launch of their smart electric coupe S01 model in China, in January 2019. These vehicles are equipped with a “Leap in” biological lock/unlock system that integrates finger vein recognition and face recognition technologies, thus, giving customers a keyless experience from entering vehicles to starting engines.

In addition, major players in the automotive digital key market continue to focus on developing key cards, smart key fobs, and wearable smart keys or smart watches with RFID technology. For instance, Senturion key developed a wearable key or smart watch. With the use of it, one can enter a vehicle and can be used for various other operations as well such as engine start/stop and door lock/unlock.
