This blog post examines the different components of the transportation technology ecosystem. We will illustrate what the categories of innovation are and which categories have the most companies. We will also compare the categories in terms of their funding and maturity.
Let’s start off by looking at the Sector Map. We have classified 1430 transportation technology startups into 17 categories. They have raised $163B from 2710 investors. The Sector Map highlights the number of companies in each category. It also shows a random sampling of companies in each category.
We see that Automotive Telematics is the largest category with 213 companies. This category contains companies that collect, analyze, and distribute car data. This data is used by owners to optimize their automotive use. Their products include on-board data readers, diagnostic tools, and notifications to mobile devices. Some example companies in this category are Zubie, Otonomo, Airbiquity, and CloudCar.
Let’s now look at our Innovation Quadrant to find out the funding and maturity of these categories in relation to one another.
Our Innovation Quadrant divides the transportation technology categories into four different quadrants.
We see that the Pioneers quadrant has the most number of transportation technology categories at 10, accounting for 59% of all transportation technology categories. The V2V Communications category has the highest average age, and the Ride Hailing category has the highest average funding. On the other hand, the Smart Parking and Car Sharing categories are low on both average funding and age.
