An automotive keyless entry system is used to remotely lock, unlock and start a car’s engine without using a mechanical key, using radio frequency (RF) signals. Nowadays, most keyless entry systems use a transmitter fob to generate the lock and unlock signal. Modern keyless entry systems use a key fob with two or more buttons to control the locks, trunk, or windows, sending a radio frequency signal to a receiver unit within the car, usually from the range of about 15 to 45 feet when one of the buttons is pushed. With the increasing advancements in technology as well as rising demand for vehicles, the demand for keyless entry systems is on the rise amongst automobile users, which in turn, is expected to create massive revenue generation opportunities for the key players operating in the global automotive keyless entry system market during the forecast period. For instance, as per the data released in 2022 by the Federation of Automobile Dealers Associations (FADA), there was an increase in total vehicle retail, 204%, and 278% in passenger vehicle (PV) and commercial vehicles (CV) respectively.
