Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) cars hold a majority share in the self-driving cars market with a market share of over 95% in 2017. This growth is attributed to the high demand for ICE-based cars in emerging nations such as India and Brazil. However, the rising concerns toward environmental safety and the increasing number of government regulations to reduce carbon emissions have restricted the growth of the ICE cars market. The supportive government policies such as tax benefits and subsidiaries are fostering the growth of the Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV) market.
The technological advancements in the autonomous industry are fast outdoing the existing regulatory framework. Therefore, the gap between the regulatory framework and the self-driving technology is steadily widening. Moreover, the lack of adequate road infrastructure is also plaguing the growth of the self-driving cars market.
