I’ve been reading, thinking and talking a lot about the Israeli automotive industry, both in my recent blogposts about cars and in other places. I keep going back to the great work that Magma VC did with their Israeli automotive industry spreadsheet, so I decided to actually see what’s inside and to create a simple pie that will sum up which verticals are bigger than others. This is just a simple thing I did, but it really shows something.
What are we seeing here?
Sensor companies: 22
Companies that deal with parking: 12-16
Companies that build vehicles or parts of them: 10
Cyber, ride sharing: 9+9
Fleet management, location, engine: 8
Companies that were acquired: 6
Cyber: Arilou (iGo), Towersec (Harman)
Over The Air: Redbend (Harman)
Parking: Parko (EasyPark group)
Dashcam: iOnRoad (Harman)
After Market: Saips (Ford)
And then all the rest.
Here’s the original spreadsheet
