Global Autonomous Vehicle Market to Grow at a CAGR of 20.78% from 2018-2028

The global automotive industry is going through a period of wide-ranging and transformative changes with the shift in the consumer behavior as well as increasing implementation of stringent environmental regulations.Factors such as rising safety and security concerns, increasing demand for reliable transportation system, and advent of revolutionary trends, such as transition from car ownership to “Mobility as a Service” (MaaS), are expected to increase the demand for autonomous vehicles.

Autonomous vehicles are the key to changing urban transportation beyond recognition in the next few years.There are both traditional OEMs and new vehicle developers who are working in this ecosystem to improve and introduce fully-autonomous vehicles on the road.

These vehicles will have advanced features from traditional vehicles and improve the driving experience for passengers. The Society of Automotive Engineers International (SAE) has defined six levels of automation to classify a system’s sophistication, ranking from 0 to 5.

Level 0: No Automation

In this level, the driver is in control of the entire vehicle and all aspects of driving are entirely manually controlled. Example of such a vehicle is 2018 KIA Rio, among others.

Level 1: Driver Assistance

In this level, the vehicle system can assist with some functions such as controlling the steering or the vehicle speed.The driver handles a majority of the vehicle functions.

Features such as adaptive cruise control or lane keeping are part of this level of automation.

Level 2: Partial Automation

In this level, the vehicle system is able to control the braking, steering, or acceleration of the vehicle.These features can be applied together and the coordination between two or more of these assist technologies helps a vehicle to be of Level 2 status.

A driver is there during all times to actively monitor the vehicle’s progress and be ready to intervene at any time. Most vehicles in 2018 have these features of Level 2 such as GM Super Cruise, Mercedes-Benz Distronic Plus, Tesla Autopilot, Nissan ProPilot Assist, and Volvo Pilot Assist, among others.

Level 3: Conditional Automation

In this level, the vehicle system is able to detect the environment around the vehicle using sensors such as LiDARs and make informed decisions for the vehicle such as overtaking a slower moving vehicle in front of it.The vehicle system is able to manage most aspects of driving, including monitoring the environment.

The system prompts the driver to intervene when it encounters a scenario it can’t navigate. Audi Traffic Jam Assist is the only commercialized level 3 auto pilot system developed by Audi for Audi A8.

Level 4: High Automation

In this level, the vehicle can operate without human intervention but only in certain conditions. There is an option to manually override the vehicle system functions.

Level 5: Full Automation

In this level, the vehicles can operate as driverless vehicles in any road conditions. These vehicles are being developed to be used as robo-taxis, such as Waymo, among others.

Executive Summary
The global automotive industry is undergoing transformations, with a shift in the consumer behavior from conventional vehicles to autonomous vehicles as well as an increase in the implementation of stringent environmental regulations.The automotive industry currently experiences substantial investments in research and development.

Unlike other industries, automotive research and development efforts are largely funded by the industry, rather than through public sources.Automotive R&D spending is increasing rapidly to keep pace with the demands for more sophisticated and effective technologies such as autonomous vehicles, telematics, and intelligent transportation systems, owing to the need to prevent accidents and maintain proper public transportation.

Improved fuel economy and reduced vehicular emission continue to drive automakers to bring improvements in vehicle powertrain, light weighting, aerodynamics, and other vehicle attributes.Consumer preferences, increasing congestion, and various mobility choices mean that vehicles have to incorporate a variety of creative technologies to attract buyers.

As a consequence, both public sources and private companies are investing substantially in the automotive industry.

The autonomous vehicle market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 20.78% during the forecast period 2018-2028. The autonomous vehicle market is driven by several factors such as increasing push from governments as well as consumers to ensure road safety and to develop connected and autonomous infrastructures, which boost the demand for reliable transportation system. Additionally, increased government focus on streamlined traffic infrastructure boosts the market growth. Moreover, factors such as increasing focus on vehicle platooning, transition from car ownership to mobility-as-a-service (MaaS), and revenue generation opportunity for different layers of automotive ecosystem is anticipated to create numerous opportunities for the market growth.
