Autonomous Cars Market, By Types (Fully-Autonomous and Semi-Autonomous), By Level of Autonomy (Level-1, Level-2, Level-3, Level-4 and Level-5), By Vehicle Type (Internal Combustion Engine, Hybrid Electric Vehicle and Battery Electric Vehicle), and By Geography (EU, NA, APAC, LATAM, and MEA) - Analysis, Size, Share, Trends, & Forecast from 2020-2026.
Autonomous cars market was were estimated to be over 6.23 thousand units by 2020, growing with 49.6% CAGR during the forecast period, 2021-2026.
Autonomous cars (also known as automated or driverless cars) are a vehicle that is capable of sensing its environment and can be operated without human involvement. Basic physical ecosystem of these vehicles includes advanced features such as light detection and ranging, global positioning system, ultrasonic sensors, radar sensors, dedicated short-range communications-based receiver among others. The widespread adoption of self-driving cars reduces energy and fuel consumption for about 25% thereby, most of the consumers are inclined towards using autonomous cars. In addition, autonomous cars are capable of reducing road accidents According to the Global Tec Forum, more than 10 million autonomous vehicles will hit the roads by the end of 2020 and this will lead to over 90% reduction in vehicle crashes.
Increasing incidences of road accidents is considered to be one of the important factor that will fuel the product demand, augmenting the autonomous cars market growth. As per the World Health Organization (WHO), more than 1.35 million people die as a result of road traffic crashes every year. Integration of advanced technologies in autonomous vehicles could help drivers to eliminate human errors and can reduce traffic fatalities. The United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) stated that growing adoption of autonomous cars will drastically decrease the number of traffic deaths globally.
Furthermore, companies are increasingly investing in research and development activities to expand the use of driverless cars into different applications. For instance, recently, in January 2018, California based self-driving delivery vehicle manufacturer, Udelv Inc., completed the first delivery of groceries by a self-driving car in San Mateo. Likewise, in February 2018, Hyundai Motor Company's next generation fuel cell electric car has made a successful automated trip from Seoul to Pyeongchang. This was the first time a Level 4 autonomous car has been operated with eco-friendly & fuel cell electric cars. Such initiatives would, in turn, further fuel the demand for autonomous cars, supporting the industry growth.
Moreover, increasing investment in the auto-technology and rising research activities for the development of self-driving technology support the overall industry growth. Tech heavyweights and automotive manufacturers such as Alphabet, Uber and Tesla are increasingly investing in autonomous R&D to develop a fully autonomous vehicle. In addition to this, private firms working in automotive technology are attracting record number of deals and funding, with autonomous driving start-ups. Such activities are stating the strong growth of this industry over the study period. On the other hand, high cost coupled with low acceptance rate in developing regions will hamper the industry growth to some extent.
"Semi-Autonomous segment to be most worthwhile during the forecast period"
Based on the types, the global market for autonomous cars is categorized into semi-automated, and fully automated. The semi-automated segment accounted for the majority of the market share in 2019 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. Growing user's preference for semi-automated vehicles coupled with technology advancements support the segment growth. Reports by Economic Times suggest that in February 2020, the sales of Hyundai's semi-automatic cars increased to 13%.
The fully-autonomous segment is further divided into user-operated fully autonomous vehicles, and driverless fully autonomous vehicles. This segment is anticipated to grow at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period due to increased R&D activities by the major manufacturers in software applications. Moreover, governments across various nations are allowing the testing of driver-less cars. In addition, it is expected that by the year 2030, 40% of the vehicle in Europe single-handedly will be cover by the autonomous vehicle. The aforesaid factors are the key reasons for the development of the segment.
Level of Autonomy Takeaway
"Level-1 segment to dominate the industry by 2026"
The Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) developed 6 levels of driving automation ranging from level 0 to 5. In this report, the autonomous cars industry is categorized into level-2 (Partial Automation), level-1 (Driver Assistance), level-4 (High Automation), level-3 (Conditional Automation), and level-5 (Full Automation). Of these, the level-1 accounted for the maximum industry share in 2019 as its advanced driver assistance system provides support to the driver with either accelerating, steering, or braking.
The level-4 autonomy is expected to grow at the fastest rate during the forecast period as it is capable of performing all the driving tasks independently and doesn't require any human attention. Moreover, investment by key manufacturers and the development of various start-up's also driven the overall market growth. For instance, in May 2019, Toyota invested $100 million in autonomous driving and robotics technology start-ups due to rising demand for self-driving cars.
Vehicle Type Takeaway
"Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) segment contributes to maximum growth"
Based on the vehicle type, the worldwide autonomous cars market is classified into Internal Combustion Engine (ICE), Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV) and Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV). The ICE segment led the market in 2019. The dominance is primarily attributed to wider availability of such engines. The portability and increased efficiency associated with ICE also supports the segment growth to great extent. It is analysed that internal combustion engine accounted for more than 90% of the global car sales in 2019. The foresaid reasons are the key factor contributing to the growth of the market
Europe accounted for the highest share of the global autonomous cars market with a stake of over 38% in 2019. Increasing investment by automotive manufacturers to develop advanced auto-technology has supported significantly to the regional growth. Along with, favourable government initiatives for the development of automotive sector, high product demand coupled with presence of publicly-available electric vehicle charging points will support the Europe autonomous cars market growth to great extent. North America accounted for the significant revenue share of the worldwide market in the year 2019. The Autonomous Vehicles Readiness Index 2019 rated Canada as the 7th out of 20 countries in terms of autonomous vehicle readiness that also supports the growth of the market.
On the contrary, developing regions such as Asia Pacific is on the cusp of the transport revolution. Continuous innovation in transport technology is transforming growth of such regions, and the pace of advancement is accelerating at rapid pace. Improved infrastructure, rising R&D activities coupled with growing adoption of ADAS technology in the region is anticipated to boost the regional growth. The penetration of autonomous mobility is expected to be highest in China hence, making it leading automotive market.
The sudden emergence of the newly discovered coronavirus has negatively affected many sectors including automotive industry. The worldwide economy has been adversely affected by the growth of the automotive field. Autonomous cars industry is also set to experience a decline over 11% in 2020-2021, with the crisis suffocating discretionary purchases through the first half of 2021. It is noted that the COVID-19 crisis has made more difficult for this industry to recover and is projected to recover by Q3 2021. On the other side, many companies such as Softbank-backed Nuro got a permit to operate driverless cars for delivering medical supplies across the globe. Such approvals will help companies to capture
