Semi – autonomous vehicles are increasingly gaining popularity as these offer a pragmatic, realistic, and quick solution to the requirement for mobility on-demand. Also, increased security and safety concerns have boosted customers’ demand for semi-autonomous vehicle technologies as these offer potential benefits of engine productivity, improved fuel efficiency, and minimal vehicle accidents. Such vehicles need minimum human intervention as these makes use of advanced driver assist technologies like adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, intelligent park assist, adaptive front lights, and others which enables reduction in the efforts that are required to manoeuvre the vehicle.
Growing inclination towards minimizing human efforts, increased use of upgraded technologies, and growing consumer spending on lavish vehicles are some of the factors that are expected to significantly contribute towards the growth of global semi-autonomous vehicle market during the forecast period. In addition, technological advancements, and deployment of 5G network provides lucrative growth opportunities to the market. However, lack of supporting infrastructure is expected to hamper the growth of global semi-autonomous vehicle market during the forecast years.
With increase in the traffic congestion and road traffic injuries and deaths, the need for such vehicles with semi – autonomous capabilities is expected to increase owing to the need to minimize human efforts. This is likely to boost the market growth during the forecast period. According to the report published by the World Health Organization in 2021, nearly 1.3 million people die per year, due to road traffic crashes across the globe. The United Nations General Assembly has set targets to half the worldwide number of injuries and deaths from road traffic crashes by 2030. Hence, this would demand proliferate the demand and adoption of semi-autonomous vehicles.
