WILMINGTON, Del. – A study by Transparency Market Research (TMR) offering an autonomous vehicles (AV) market forecast found that advanced ADAS standards and regulations are constantly evolving, and the factor is catalyzing the market growth.
As a result of the rising adoption of ADAS will help the autonomous car market expand at compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10.8 percent from 2022 to 2031 and reach $3 trillion by 2031.
Expansion of the self-driving car market size is driven by the growing demand for vehicles featuring level 1 and level 2 autonomy. On the other hand, key players are leaning on offering level 4 autonomy features to gain autonomous vehicle market share.
The TMR study has scrutinized autonomous vehicle industry growth dynamics and underscored that the demand for state-of-the-art autonomous driving systems will grow on the back of advanced driver safety features.
The TMR analysts asserted that application of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning systems in AVs and continuous advancements in sensors and actuator systems are extending the canvas for revenue generation.
Key Findings of Autonomous Car Market Study
Steady Demand for Vehicles with Advanced Safety Features to Spur Commercialization: Steady consumer demand for vehicles with smart safety features is a key driver for generating revenues in the autonomous car market.
