Market Overview

Looking the industry from the optimistic view, automation has already arrived – in the form of level 2 cars. The first step has already been taken by few OEMs in successfully building level 3 car, although it is yet to be on roads. However, with huge investments and funding going on in the industry, there is no stopping for fully autonomous cars to be a reality. 

Autonomous vehicles in the form of shuttles, pods, and robotaxis are already developed and being used in closed environment. This shows that the industry is technologically equipped in developing such vehicles. Of course, there are many milestones yet to be achieved, but the industry is moving rapidly and competing in developing autonomous cars.
The market numbers are evident and support the claims of autonomous cars being a close reality. In 2018 itself, approx. ~XX million passenger cars were equipped with level 1 and 2 features of automation (advanced assistance). This number is estimated to grow to ~XX million this year (2019), at a rate of XX percent. Apart from this, there are ~XX thousand robotic vehicles globally with high autonomous features.

Expected penetration and demand of ADAS and autonomous vehicles market across different levels of autonomy

The future scenario is expected to upend where every car will compulsorily have some or the other ADAS feature integrated. By 2030, ~XX million cars will be ADAS featured, ~XX million cars will be with Level 2 capability, ~XX million cars with Level 3 features, XX thousand cars will be highly autonomous, and XX thousand robotic vehicles.
Highly automated vehicles are expected to first hit the roads of developed economies such as United States, Japan, and countries of Western Europe. China being one of the potential markets other than developed markets, will soon commercialize driverless cars with shared mobility services

Many OEMs are reluctant to move further towards L3 automation. Few OEMs will not launch level 3 vehicle, preferring to jump straight to level 4 to avoid re-engagement and liability issues. However, one of the early movers in the premium brands segment such as Audi has already developed a level 3 car – Audi A8, and is testing on the Western European roads. Level 3 cars are expected to be commercialized by 2021 in Western Europe and United States.
Post 2023, OEMs are expected to start production of L4 autonomy featured passenger cars. Such cars will be initially featured with only highway autopilot. Fully autonomous cars are still a distant future expected only after 2030 for closed environment driving. OEMs will become mobility service providers to retain the customer relationship and offset the risks of decreased car shipments

The industry always craves for technology innovations that could address the current challenges and reduce the time to market for highly autonomous vehicles
OEMs will retain the control over building the cars, while technology companies such as Google, Uber, and Intel among others could be those that build the intelligence behind them, including the relationship with passengers. Deep learning and AI are the core innovations ahead of sensors.
In urban environment, HD maps will have the edge in providing high level of accuracy. Elsewhere, high accuracy GNSS positioning will be required.
Adding level 3 assistance in vehicles will cost XX% more than installing level 2 features - level 4 will be a further XX% more expensive!
Sensor companies are putting forth highly advanced, low cost and effective solutions that holds potential to change the current market trends. These include MEMS based LiDAR, high-resolution imaging radar, thermal cameras, DMS, gesture recognition, ToF imaging solutions, and many more.
Sensor fusion of radar, camera, and LiDAR is expected to drive the autonomous driving market post 2021 with average semiconductor content cost of $1000. Artificial intelligence will play a vital role in future driverless cars in conjunction with sensor fusion for successful operation of highly autonomous and driverless cars
Total analog semiconductor content market in autonomous driving industry is expected to cross $XX billion by 2030

Majority of Tier 1 suppliers are currently developing Level 2 and above solutions and incorporating artificial intelligence for surround mapping. Tier 2 and other technology players will play a major role in transforming the complete automotive industry as the industry moves on the path of driverless, connected, shared mobility, and electrification of the vehicles. Tier 1, Tier 2, and other technology suppliers will benefit the most from this growth 

Level 4 automation will shift the way OEMs market and sell vehicles. The car will become a second office or living room.
OEMs will become peer-to-peer car sharing platforms, encouraging owners / lessees to share their cars to make them more affordable. Going further, automation will blur the lines between ownership and sharing when owners will share and then use other shared cars if their own is not available.

Luxury OEM brands such as BMW, Daimler (Mercedes Benz), Audi, Volvo, and Tesla, among others are leading the race for developing and bringing Level 2 to Level 5 cars on roads. All these luxury brands have announced their driverless cars prototypes/concept cars
OEMs such as Volkswagen, Ford, Hyundai, Renault-Nissan, Honda, and GM are trying to develop cost effective high automation solutions for shared mobility and private ownership purpose
All the companies have already launched Level 2 cars, and few are skipping Level 3 and jumping to Level 4 technology cars while many are following the SAE levels of automation
Among the Tier 1 suppliers Bosch, Continental, Aptiv, Denso, Veoneer, Magna, Valeo, and Hyundai Mobis are few of the leading players in the market
Mobileye, an Intel company, is the leading vision-sensing provider. Mobileye’s partnerships with GM, Intel, Wabco, BMW, Delphi and Volkswagen will bring new business opportunities Nvidia has emerged as a key supplier of deep learning and processing components to Tesla, Honda, Volvo, Audi, Daimler, BMW, VW, and Baidu

Vision sensors, radar, LiDAR sensor players and start-ups are gaining momentum to gain huge market share in coming 5 years owing to the emergence of highly autonomous solutions

AI technology providers are expected to have huge market opportunities in coming years. Shared mobility services, robotic vehicles, pods, and shuttle providers such as Uber, Waymo, Lyft, NAVYA, Easy Mile, Auro, Local Motors, Grab, May Mobility, SB Drive, and Didi among many others are collaborating with OEMs to make shared robotic cars available on the roads by 2023
