The global autonomous vehicles market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 39.6% during the forecast period 2017–2027.

The market is segmented and analyzed by product type, autonomous vehicles type and regions. Under the product type segment, the software segment is expected to hold the major market share, followed by the hardware and services segment. The software segment is mainly driven by the fully autonomous vehicles when compared to semi-autonomous vehicles. The hardware providers have new business opportunities due to different types of components that will be used in autonomous vehicles for its functioning. But the hardware market share is expected to decline in the coming years when the adoption rate of autonomous vehicles increases.

Segmentation by region reveals that North America is the leading region in the autonomous vehicles market. It is an attractive destination for key stakeholders due to the availability of high-end infrastructure, rising investments from automakers, and government initiatives. In the Asia Pacific region, China, India, and Japan are expected to lead the market for the next 6 to 8 years. In India, the government bodies too are supporting electric vehicles. This is one of the major drivers for the growth of the autonomous vehicles market. On the contrary, the lack of adequate infrastructure may slow down the market in the developing countries.
