Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Software Market for Autonomous Cars 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global software market for autonomous cars: Alphabet, Delphi Automotive, Intel, NVIDIA, QNX Software Systems, and Tesla.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Apple, Autotalks, Cisco, Cohda Wireless, Covisint, DeepMap, and Nauto.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Increasing mergers and acquisitions. The global software market for autonomous cars is witnessing a trend of increasing mergers and acquisitions. Many small companies, especially startups, are focused on developing autonomous technology for vehicles. Big automotive companies are acquiring these companies to speed up their goal of reaching Level 4 and Level 5 autonomy”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is High investment by companies in autonomous vehicles technology. One of the major drivers in the global software market for autonomous cars is the increase in the investment in the technology of autonomous cars. Since 2016, most of the investments have been made for a period of two or more years. These investments will drive the market in a positive direction during the forecast period.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Huge price of autonomous cars. One of the major challenges faced by the global autonomous cars market is the high cost associated with these cars. The cost of Level 4 and Level 5 autonomous cars is estimated to be very high, which will not fit the budget of a middle-income family. Sensors, software, engineering, power and computing requirements, and R&D investments will increase the price of autonomous cars. The Tesla Model X equipped with a Level 2 autonomous system costs around $82,500 in the US. The price is expected to increase after Tesla releases Level 4 or Level 5 autonomous cars.
