Autonomous Car Market Size worth over 60 Mn units by 2024

  • Published Date: October 21, 2018

Autonomous Car Market size is set to exceed 60 million units by 2024; according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.

The autonomous car market is driven by increasing investments in the auto technology. The self-driving vehicle industry is promising huge profits and lucrative returns on investment for all parties involved in the manufacturing and distribution of autonomous car. This is encouraging large corporations and VC investors to invest in the auto-technology and to secure their share of future profits. Moreover, advancements in the automotive technology also encourage the development of autonomous vehicles.


The high cost of the autonomous vehicles is hindering the autonomous car market growth. The autonomous vehicles employ a large number of advanced sensors and electronic systems (such as LiDAR and cyber security software) to enable V2V (vehicle to vehicle) and V2X (vehicle to infrastructure) communication. The costs associated with these advanced sensors and communication networks increase the overall cost of production.
