Market Overview

Advanced driver assistance or level 1 autonomy features are commonly found on most new consumer vehicles today. In 2019, ~XX percent (XX million cars) of the passenger vehicle sold was equipped with level 1 autonomy. While partial autonomy or level 2 system is not being installed on majority of models and higher trim-levels. In 2019, XX million (XX percent) of all the passenger vehicles sold was equipped with level 2 autonomy. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the level 1 and level 2 autonomy passenger vehicles are expected to witness sharp declines in the demand for the first half of 2020.

 Currently, the level 2 autonomy has very low market penetration of less XX percent, as it is majorly deployed on high-end models/trim levels or only in luxury cars as of now. However, as the regulations for safety driving gets mandatory across all the major automotive markets, OEMs will have to push more models and trims with level 2 features in the market, so as to obtain 4- or 5-star ratings. It is anticipated that level 2 autonomy will be the highest level of SAE autonomy level to be available for consumer purchase. 

With higher level of autonomy, the number of cameras per car also increases drastically. According to the estimates, with series production of level 3+ autonomous vehicle post 2022 the demand for all sensor types is expected to grow exponentially. By 2030, more than XX million forward cameras, XX million surround-view cameras, XX in-cabin cameras, and XX million thermal cameras are expected to be shipped in PV industry. The highest growth of XX percent is expected to be witnessed in the demand for thermal cameras, owing to its operational benefits of sensing in extreme environmental conditions such as in night, fog, rain, and direct sunlight. While the driver monitoring systems are also expected to witness high growth of XX percent, between 2020-30. The major driving force for the higher growth is owing to the regulatory push for monitoring driver behavior, as XX percent of the road-accidents occur due to the inattentiveness of the driver.

ADAS and Autonomous Driving Industry - Camera Shipment by Technologies and Levels of Automation

ADAS and Autonomous Driving Industry - Radar Shipment by Technologies and Levels of Automation

Common consensus is that long-range LiDARs could be used as a third front facing sensor for additional redundancy in level 3 or level 2++ systems. While level 4 autonomous OEM vehicles and robotaxis might use combination of 4 to 8 medium and long range LiDARs. For instance, currently Waymo is installing 1-rooftop long-range LiDARs and 4-short/medium range LiDARs at the front and rear corners. Other great example is of Aptiv’s system used in Lyft’s fleet of autonomous vehicles. Aptiv uses combination of 5 long-range and 4 short-range LiDARs in their autonomous systems.

The current L1 ADAS package cost to OEM is estimated at $XX including hardware and software cost. This cost could fall down to $XX by 2030. The cost of L2 autonomy package currently is estimated to be XX times higher ($XX) as compared to that of L1 ADAS package cost. The fall in L2 autonomy package is estimated to be flat in next five years, as many OEMs will upgrade the systems to advance levels of L2+ or L2++, which will need extra hardware and software computing. The introductory L3 autonomy package cost to OEMs is estimated at USD XX, including the hardware and software cost. The introductory software cost is estimated to be XX percent of the total cost of a L3 autonomy system. The introductory L4/5 autonomy cost to OEM is estimated at USD XX. Assuming the L4/5 system will have higher software requirements, the overall share of software value is estimated to be around XX percent.
