Driving Factors

Government investment, an encouraging regulatory framework, and expenditure on digital infrastructure are expected to propel demand for self-driving cars throughout the study period. Furthermore, it provides independent mobility for people with disabilities as well as non-drivers. They provide a high level of flexibility and comfort for travelers to rest, read, or even work while traveling, which increases their efficiency. Furthermore, the automotive industry's increasing technological advancement and diversity has resulted in the introduction of self-driving cars. After the introduction of electric and hybrid vehicles, autonomous vehicles have become a game changer in the automotive industry. The increasing number of accidents caused by human error has prompted the need for autonomous technology to enter the automobile industry.


Restraining Factors

Autonomous vehicles are outfitted with cutting-edge technology and equipment, which raises their cost and may limit their adoption to some extent over the forecast period. Other factors that are projected to limit market revenue growth throughout the forecast period include a high likelihood of program glitches, faulty codes in equipment, and increased susceptibility to hacking.


Market Segmentation

The Global Autonomous Vehicles Market share is classified into level of automation and application.

  • The Level 2 segment is expected to grow at the fastest pace in the global autonomous vehicles market over the forecast period.  

The global autonomous vehicles market is categorized by level of automation into Level 1, Level 2, Level 3, Level 4, and Level 5. Among these, the Level 2 segment is expected to grow at the fastest pace in the global autonomous vehicles market over the forecast period. Level 2 self-driving cars are classified as "Partial Automation." Under certain conditions, they can control both steering and acceleration/deceleration at the same time. The driver, on the other hand, must remain actively engaged and ready to take control at any time. Level 2 features that are popular include advanced cruise control, lane centering, and traffic jam assist.   


  • The civil segment is expected to hold the largest share of the global autonomous vehicles market over the forecast period.
