global autonomous vehicles market

Global Autonomous Vehicles Market Overview:

An autonomous vehicle is a self-driving vehicle that can guide itself without human conduction. Autonomous vehicles enhance their performance by getting real-time feedback in-memory computing systems through IoT. The in-built features installed in the vehicles collect, analyze, and store data in real-time that helps in decision-making. Autonomous vehicles could pave the path for future systems and would replace the art of driving. With the advent of autonomous vehicles, it brings out several benefits, such as increased personal safety and reduced transportation cost. Autonomous vehicles minimize the emission of carbon dioxide into the environment.

Global Autonomous Vehicles Market Forecast and Trends

The global Autonomous Vehicles Market is anticipated to grow nearly at a CAGR of 41.5 % and expected to reach around $590Mn by 2026. The driving factor for the global autonomous vehicles market is due to its ability to tackle many issues related to road transportation such as fatality, adverse climate situations, and criminal activities. Besides, it provides a higher level of safety, as there is no possibility of human errors except technical issues.

The critical factors like growing geriatric population, rising high-end passengers, along with the increased focus on the infrastructure of streamlined traffic, are contributing to the growth of the autonomous vehicle market at a very high rate during the forecast horizon 2016-2026. Moreover, the transition of car ownership to the mobility-as-a-service (MaaS) is fueling the autonomous vehicle market significantly.

Growth drivers

Supportive Government Regulation

The governments are impelled to focus on the autonomous vehicles to cope up with the heavy traffics, which results in greater commutation time and more fuel consumption. Governments are investing in order to build the infrastructure of streamlined traffic, which will eventually, reduce the occurrence of heavy traffics. The key factor that government is investing in it, as autonomous vehicles are eco-friendly and commercialization of autonomous vehicles will augment the revenue.

Improved Safety along with the reduction in traffic congestion

The governments are compelled to focus on the autonomous vehicles to cope up with the heavy traffics, which results in more considerable commutation time and more fuel consumption. Governments are investing in building the infrastructure of streamlined traffic, which will eventually reduce the occurrence of heavy traffics. The critical factor that the government is investing in it, as autonomous vehicles are eco-friendly and commercialization of autonomous vehicles, will augment the revenue.


Risk of Exploitation by Hacking

The autonomous vehicles use IoT technology, which is connected to the internet. The hacker can misuse the navigational data through hacking and can bring severe issues to the Vehicles. So, such risk in autonomous vehicles is anticipated to impede the Autonomous Vehicles market growth.

High Manufacturing Cost

The advancement in the technology, mandate the software in an autonomous vehicle to be frequently upgraded to be compatible with the external environment. The price of vehicles’ all components and the installation of the sensor is high. Moreover, the ratio of premium consumers to that of economic consumers is very insignificant globally, since affording high-end cars for ordinary people is challenging. Therefore, high initial costs, along with maintenance costs, hinder the adoption of autonomous vehicles.
