Autonomous Cars Market Insights 2024 Opportunity Analysis Growth Potential & Forecast

The growth of the autonomous cars market can be aptly credited to the exponentially growing automotive sector across the globe. Having sold around 24 million units in 2017, autonomous cars industry has been consolidating its stance significantly in the automotive space, the future of which has been touted to be transformed owing to the rising popularity of connected cars that have lately been revolutionizing the mobility sector.

The intensive R&D efforts by industry leaders along with the support received from regional governments due to the added road-safety feature of the technology, would be responsible for the expansion of the global automotive market. Moreover, the environment-friendly feature of these vehicles would also contribute toward increased sales numbers in coming years.

Known as the first generation of autonomous vehicles – level-1 autonomous cars are the ones that incorporate an advanced driving assistance system (ADAS). The system acts as an extension of the driver and helps the vehicle operator operate the car safely. According to a 2018 report by the Victoria Transport Policy Institute (VTPI), many of the level-1 autonomous vehicles incorporate technologies like hazard warning, cruise control, collision avoidance as well as automated parallel parking that take over some of the driver’s responsibilities.

The level-1 based autonomous cars market is primarily driven by the rising road-safety concerns around the world as more and more vehicles are added to the roads each year. The increasing road-safety concerns have prompted governments across the world to introduce programs that mandate the incorporation of ADAS inside vehicles to ensure passenger safety. Programs such as the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in the U.S and the New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) in the European Union have impelled vehicle manufacturers to deploy vehicles that include a built-in level-1 semi-autonomous system. Amidst this scenario, it comes as no surprise that level-1 autonomous vehicles account for over 90% of the autonomous cars market share.

However, other industry players are rapidly closing the gap by making significant inroads in this vertical. For instance, automobile manufacturer General Motors Co. has made considerable investments in the sector with the intention of rolling-out a fully-autonomous ride-hailing service that uses a modified version of the company’s Chevrolet Bolt – a car that does not incorporate a steering wheel or control pedals – by the final quarter of 2019. To attain this goal, GM has received a significant investment worth $2.25 billion from the SoftBank Vision Fund. Moreover, companies are also working towards acquiring licenses from concerned authorities to carry out road-tests to test their respective self-driving vehicles.

Attributing to such advancements, the autonomous cars market is projected to continue garnering exponential growth in the forthcoming years. According to a report by Global Market Insights, Inc., driven by the massively growing demand for these vehicles, autonomous cars market size is expected to surpass 60 million units by 2024.
