World Driverless Car Market - Opportunities and Forecasts, 2016 -2020

Speak With Analyst Request Sample

An autonomous car (driverless car self-driving car robotic car) is a vehicle that is capable of sensing its environment and navigating without human input.

The global driverless car market is segmented on the basis of components and geography. The component market comprises of radar sensors; video cameras; LiDAR sensor; ultrasound sensors and a central computing system. Geographically, the driverless car market is segmented across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and LAMEA (Latin America, Middle East and Africa). The key companies profiled in this report are, Google, Inc.; Daimler AG; Ford Motor Company; Toyota Motor Corporation; BMW AG;  Audi AG ; AB Volvo ; Dutch Automated Vehicle Initiative (DAVI); Autonomous Lab; and Volkswagen. 

Autonomous driving technology can also be used across commercial vehicle, creating additional opportunities for driverless cars market growth. Commercialization of these vehicles is expected to take considerable amount of time and initiatives from manufacturers and regulatory bodies. The industry expects gradual introduction of more capable ADAS (Advance Driving Assistance Systems) that may control certain aspects of driving. Advancements in Car-to-X technology that enables communication between different vehicles as well as vehicles and infrastructure is expected to positively impact the driverless cars market growth. The technology also plays a significant role in traffic management. Further, GPS technology is a significant tool for autonomous vehicles assisting in navigation, and is also expected to fuel the driverless cars market over the forecast period.

European automakers such as BMW and Daimler AG are already working on self driving vehicle concept, for instance, BMWs self driving 5 series. However, the absence of any legal framework for autonomous vehicles has affected the market to a certain extent. Companies operating in the market comprise software and hardware providers in addition to manufacturers; notable participants include Continental AG, Delphi Automotive, Freescale Semiconductor, Google, and Intel Corporation.
