Report Summary:

Strategy Analytics attended the IEEE Ethernet Conference in Paris held in October 2016.  From insights from across the automotive industry, interest in Ethernet has now increased from one auto maker to several others.  There is also a widening of the supply of components and an increasing number of applications benefiting from or enabled by the use of Ethernet.  However, cost and technical challenges remain, and the demand forecast for Ethernet will remain limited to mostly luxury auto brands and the high model segments in mature markets for at least the near term.
