T-Box industry research: the market will be worth RMB10 billion and the integration trend is increasingly clear.

ResearchInChina released "Global and China Passenger Car T-Box Market Report, 2023", which combs through and summarizes the status quo, size, industry chain, and competitive pattern of the global and China passenger car T-Box markets, and provides an outlook on future trends.

China passenger car T-Box market will be valued at RMB10 billion in 2027
As more vehicles get connected and the demand for communication from functions like OTA, remote vehicle control and digital key increases, the demand for automotive T-Box is further expanding. In terms of market value, China's passenger car T-Box market was worth about RMB5.03 billion in 2022, a figure projected to reach about RMB10 billion in 2027, sustaining an AAGR of 14.8% in the next five years.

The competition among T-Box suppliers intensifies, and the market becomes more concentrated.

In terms of the competitive pattern, in 2022 the top ten passenger car T-Box suppliers in China took a combined share of about 80%, an increase of 16 percentage points over 2021. The market featured a higher concentration and the scale effect of companies became obvious.

Foreign suppliers mainly supply foreign brands:
20120114.gifLGE is still the largest T-Box supplier in China, positioned first in the Chinese T-Box market in recent years, and supplies such brands as Volkswagen, GM and Hyundai Kia;
20120114.gifDenso is the supplier of two Japanese brands, Toyota and Honda;
20120114.gifContinental mainly supplies Mercedes-Benz and Cadillac among others;
20120114.gifIn addition to BMW, Valeo has also secured orders from some Chinese independent brands such as Changan Auto and Great Wall Motor. 

China’s local suppliers are making an expansion from local companies to foreign brands:
20120114.gifNeusoft Group ranked first among China’s local T-Box suppliers in 2022, supplying not only independent brands such as Haval, Hongqi, Tank, Lynk & Co and ORA, but also foreign brands like BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Volvo and Audi; 
20120114.gifLan-You Technology mainly supplies the Dongfeng family, including Dongfeng’s own brands like Dongfeng Aeolus and Dongfeng Forthing and also its joint venture brands such as Dongfeng Nissan and Dongfeng Infiniti.

Integration trends of T-Box

As well as data collection and forwarding, T-Box tends to offer many other functions including data cleansing, analysis, control, OTA, and integration and analysis of data from multiple ECUs. The trend for software and hardware integration is more obvious. From the prospective of hardware integration, the key trends cover the following.

1. T-Box integrates central gateway
T-Box and central gateway both process enormous amounts of data and have similar functions. The integration of them saves cost and improves data processing efficiency.

2. T-Box integrates 5G module

Since the commercial use of 5G in 2019, T-Box has started upgrading to 5G communication.

The passenger cars equipped with 5G as a standard configuration reached 279,000 units in 2022, accounting for 1.4%, a figure jumping to 4.2% in 2023Q1. In terms of T-Box manufacturers, as of February 2023, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) has issued a total of 90 5G T-Box network access licenses, including 13 to Neusoft, 8 to Huawei and 8 to Datang Gohigh.

Product form trends of T-Box

In terms of product form, conventional T-Box is heading in the directions of smart antenna, V-Box and communication domain controller.

1. Smart antenna

Smart antennas such as 4G/GPS/BT antenna improve communication quality with fewer wire harnesses, thus saving costs. 

20120114.gifContinental's new-generation T-Box for Mercedes-Benz, Volvo and PSA integrates a shark fin antenna;
20120114.gifNeusoft’s smart antenna adopts the all-in-one design concept, integrating Tuner, GPS, Wi-Fi and other software and hardware. The integration of conventional shark fin and T-BOX and the collection and digitalization of the wireless signals of the whole vehicle are a way to overcome the difficulty of conventional wiring on the vehicle, functionally improving the communication quality, enabling the smooth, safe and integrated intelligent connection experience and all-scenario coverage, and effectively saving wiring cost. Neusoft’s smart antenna has been widely used in Hongqi H9/HQ9 and other models. Meanwhile, the product fully supports 5G and 5G+V2X applications.

2. V-Box

T-Box communication modules evolve from single modules to integrated modules such as 4G+V2X and 5G+V2X, offering increasingly diversified functions, and bring out independent V-Box product forms.

Neusoft 5G V2X BOX supports 5G NSA/SA communication, L1+L5 GNSS, C-V2X communication, Gigabit Ethernet technology, CAN FD communication, LIN communication, Bluetooth 5.0+ communication, WiFi 6 communication, RKE, TPMS communication, and ETC. Currently, Neusoft 5G V2X BOX has been mass-produced for Geely, Great Wall and other auto brands, and will be installed in dozens of mid- and high-end models of well-known OEMs, making it possible for more intelligent vehicles to achieve high quality, stable intelligent communication.

3. Communication domain controller

As the automotive E/E architecture evolves from the distributed to the centralized, T-Box not only supports vehicle interior and exterior communication technologies such as 4G/5G, C-V2X, Bluetooth, UWB, and even 6G and satellite communications in the future, but also gradually integrates gateway, domain controller and other functions, evolving from a single electronic unit to an information communication domain controller and high-performance computing (HPC) platform.

Flaircomm Microelectronics started the information communication domain controller project in 2018, which has been installed by SAIC and other OEMs. With continuous efforts on iteration and upgrade, the company introduced a new-generation self-developed connection computing platform (CCP) in 2021, which not only supports information and communication domain capabilities (e.g., 4G/5G, C-V2X, gateway routing and FOTA), but also offers high-performance computing and data & communication security capabilities. This product can be used as an entry-level HPC product.
