DUBLIN, July 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --

Research and Markets( has announced the addition of the "Rise of Virtual Cockpits in Cars " report to their offering.

This study examines the evolving instrument cluster market for passenger vehicles in North America and Europe. It presents current penetration of analogue, hybrid, and fully digital displays, and determines how those percentages will shift as demand increases for head-up displays that reduce driver distraction. It details display technologies and the information that is most likely to be incorporated in instrument clusters of the future, and reviews what is available in current models. User interface suppliers are benchmarked, with information provided about operating systems and collaborations. The base year is 2014; the forecast period is from 2015 to 2021.

Key Findings

- For the next couple of years, thin-film transistor (TFT) will be the perfect display technology considering its cost and performance. Liquid crystal display (LCD)-quantum dot is expected to be a suitable candidate to replace TFTs once its potential is realised.
- The virtual cockpit will be limited to premium-segment vehicles. Hybrid ICs, which include both analogue and digital components, will become common in almost all vehicle segments and platforms starting in 2017.
- Resolutions are available in 1280 x 480, 1600 x 600, and 1920 x 720 pixels
