Report Highlights

Global In-Vehicle Payments Market to Reach $25,918.6 Million by 2031

Market Segmentation:

Segmentation 1: by Vehicle Type

  • Passenger Vehicles
  • Commercial Vehicles

Passenger vehicles are currently credited with the highest share of the demand for in-vehicle payments. Some key factors that have enabled the technical acceptance of these vehicles are high demand, higher registration of passenger cars, and less operating difficulty as compared to commercial vehicles. The need for passenger vehicles is growing due to the demand for heavy and luxury vehicles and an increase in the number of cars driven by diesel engines. Additionally, increased population, urbanization, and disposable income have significantly increased passenger vehicle production.

Segmentation 2: by Application Type

  • Parking
  • Gas/Charging Stations
  • Food and Beverages
  • Toll Collection

The gas/charging stations segment accounts for the largest market. A growing number of locations support the ability to pay from an app while driving. One must enter their pump number to begin pumping or charging their vehicle. Contactless payment readers can read payment information from a compatible credit card or a digital device such as an Apple CarPlay. The general idea behind the CarPlay update is that users can pay for gas using their car's touchscreen instead of a credit card.

Segmentation 3: by Mode of Payment Type

  • RFID
  • QR Codes and e-Wallets
  • Credit/Debit Cards & Apps

The credit/debit card and apps segment accounts for the largest market. Debit and credit cards are the most popular payment methods and are widely used to make in-vehicle payments. They provide a convenient way to pay without cash or checks and are accepted almost everywhere.

Segmentation 4: by Region

  • North America
  • Europe
  • U.K.
  • China
  • Asia-Pacific and Japan
  • Rest-of-the-World

North America currently holds the largest share of the global in-vehicle payments market. The North America region comprises the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. The presence of technology providers, minimal miscalculations, product customization, and reduced production timescale are the primary driving factors of the North America in-vehicle payments market. The U.S. government's policies for research and development activities regarding in-vehicle payments also hasten the region's adoption of in-vehicle payments.

Recent Developments in the Global In-Vehicle Payments Market

  • In May 2021, Hyundai made in-car payments available for its all-electric Ioniq 5 crossovers. This launch enabled the company to provide advanced payment capabilities to drivers as well as assist them in paying at the electric vehicle (EV) charging stations and restaurants.
  • In January 2022, Ford Motor Company and Stripe, an online payment processor, signed Ford Motor Company as a customer in a five-year deal designed to strengthen the automotive giant's e-commerce strategy.

  • In May 2022, General Motors announced that it would pay $2.1 billion for SoftBank's equity stake in its majority-owned driverless vehicle company, which is expected to boost the in-vehicle payments market.
  • In September 2021, Honda Motor Co., Ltd. and Google announced their partnership in which the two companies had agreed to integrate Google's in-vehicle connected service into an all-new model that would go for sale in North America by the end of 2022, boosting the global in-vehicle payments market.
