Global Autonomous Vehicles Market to Reach $2.04 Trillion by 2030

A report published by Research and Markets finds that the global Autonomous Vehicle market will grow from $54.21 billion in 2019 to $2.04 trillion by 2030 with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 39.1 percent in the forecast period 2020-2030. An excerpt from the report description outlines some key factors influencing the market's growth:

The growth of the automotive vehicles market is attributed to the rising number of benefits offered by unmanned vehicle as compared to traditional vehicles such as reduced road-crash risk, enhanced safety & security, elimination in driver wages, secured mobility for disabled individuals and non-drivers, and increased comfort and flexibility offered by seamless operative systems.

However, high component costs, high software and hardware maintenance updates, increasing incidences of cyber-attacks hacking the operating systems are likely to hamper the market. On the other hand, increasing investments by regulatory bodies in digitization, adoption of advanced infrastructures in smart cities, high usage of smart gadgets and smart automotive, technological evolution, high standard of living, and increasing per capita income are creating growth opportunities for the autonomous vehicle market.
