It will also rule out the chances of human errors and emotions that tend to make a major contribution in the event of an accident.

Increasing demand for electric vehicles has also proved to be an opportunity for the market as it requires self assessing automatic features in the car for its functioning. Increasing developments in autonomous shared mobility has also proved to be am opportunity which will propel the market growth. Increasing investments in lidar startups by automotive industries helps support this developing technology in the current market.


High system and component cost posses a big challenge as it reduces the affordability of the vehicles for the common man. The rising living cost of the people make it impossible for them to make big expenses for such luxury vehicles. Environmental constraints and security threats which are created on account of cyber crimes and hacking increase the risk factors associated with the purchase of these vehicles. It can also lead to theft of the vehicles by the use of automated functions by which they operate.

Maintaining a balance between cost and quality will prove to be a big challenge as with increasing quality the cost goes up which tends to exceed the expense capacity of the people. Real-time image processing in multi-camera systems is a challenge as a single fault in it would cost a big loss to the consumer in the event of a mishap. Creating and maintaining maps for self-driving cars is a tedious process and will challenge the market in terms of accuracy and precision in the real-time traffic on the roads. These factors challenge the growth of the market during the forecast period.
