/EIN News/ -- Delhi, Jan. 27, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Global robotaxi market is growing at a high CAGR because of the increasing concerns towards carbon emission and depleting levels of non-renewable fuel. Additionally, the increasing focus towards better traffic management is also propelling the global robotaxi market growth

A recent study conducted by the strategic consulting and market research firm BlueWeave Consulting, revealed that the global robotaxi market was worth USD 0.5 billion in 2021. The market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 69.4%, earning revenue of around USD 20.3 billion by the end of 2028.

The market for robotaxis is flourishing at a rapid rate as a result of technological advances made by robotaxi companies and increased trust in autonomous vehicles. Also, the rising concern regarding carbon emissions and the depletion of non-renewable fuel are driving the robotaxi market worldwide. Further, improvements in traffic management are expected to boost market growth during the forecast period. However, growing concerns about the security of robotaxi may act as a major hindrance to its market growth.

Emergence of electric & fuel cell vehicles is driving the growth of the global robotaxi market

Electric and fuel cell vehicles are the only type of vehicles currently used for robotaxis owing to ease of automation in these vehicles. The growing sales of electric & fuel cell vehicles have paved the way for growing demand for robotaxis. According to the Global EV Outlook Report of 2021, 2020 has been a fruitful year for EV sales even amid the COVID-19 pandemic, registering a staggering 43% increase reaching 10 million in EV sales as against 2019. Sales of Hybrid electric car sales hit record highs in the US in 2021 with an increase of 76% from 2020 levels.

Mercedes-Benz, one of the leading car companies in the world, registered 69.3% increase in its plug-in hybrid and all-electric passenger cars sales. Tesla, leading electric car brand in the world, registered an increase of 87% in its electric car sales in 2021 from 2020 levels. China accounted for 21% of all electric vehicle sales in 2021 and companies like Aion, BYD, Li Xiang, NIO, and Xpeng all registered increased sales in the country in 2021. Additionally, the growing investment in development of charging infrastructure is expected for further support the growth of the global robotaxi market during the forecast period.

Increasing Demand for Electric Robotaxi Propelling the Growth of the Global Robotaxi Market

Based on propulsion type, the robotaxi market is grouped into electric and fuel cell segments. The electric propulsion segment accounts for the largest market share. The growth of the segment can be ascribed to the various advantages electric vehicles offer over fuel cells, such as zero-emission, low maintenance and operating cost, as well as higher efficiency, which is propelling its market growth. Furthermore, increasing installations of charging points in various regions are anticipated to boost the penetration of electric robotaxis on roads during the forecast period.

Robotaxis for Car Rental Applications Are Expected to Boost the Market's Growth

Based on service types, the robotaxi market is grouped into car rental and station-based segments. The car rental segment holds the largest market share. Certain countries, such as China, have already begun testing driverless taxis in their major cities. Moreover, cab companies, such as Uber, are investing in robotaxis for car rental to reduce their operating costs incurred by human drivers. Furthermore, the development of Transportation-as-a-Service (TaaS) is also providing lucrative growth opportunities for robotaxis in the car rental services sector.

Global Robotaxi Market - By Component

Based on components, the robotaxi market is segmented into the camera, LiDAR, radar, and ultrasonic sensors. Among these, the LiDAR component segment accounts for the largest market share. LiDAR sensors radiate light particles called photons in order to identify objects nearby, including cars, pedestrians, and trees. LiDAR sensors allow robotaxi to operate without human drivers by communicating with its system and adjusting speed accordingly. Consequently, the demand for LiDAR components is rising rapidly.

Global Robotaxi Market - Regional Insights

Geographically, the robotaxi market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle-East & Africa. Among these, the Asia-Pacific dominates the robotaxi market. However, North America is also estimated to witness substantial growth during the forecast period owing to the high concentration of major industry players, such as Tesla, Uber, Waymo, etc., that are investing significant amounts in the launch and development of robotaxis. Further, stringent government regulations regarding carbon emission and initiatives to boost the adoption of electric vehicles are projected to boost North America’s robotaxi market during the forecast period.

Impact of COVID-19 on the Global Robotaxi Market

The global robotaxi market experienced a significant blow due to the COID-19-induced pandemic. The automobile industry was among the worst-hit sectors during this period and had to undergo severe challenges. Robotaxi production and distribution were restricted, and testing and use of robotaxis for car rental were also prohibited due to mobility restrictions, causing severe losses for the market. However, due to the rising awareness regarding carbon emission and sustainability post-COVID-19, the global robotaxi market is expected to experience lucrative growth opportunities during the forecast period.

Additionally, various governments and regulatory bodies around the world has approved the commercial application of robotaxis. For instance, in November 2021, Baidu received approval from Beijing’s municipal government to start its commercial services in the city and start collecting fare from the customers. In the same month, also received the approval for its paid autonomous robotaxi services in Beijing. Previously, General Motors (GM) received approval to test its robotaxis on public roads in San Francisco without a safety driver. The increasing number of approvals from the regulatory bodies highlights the growing penetration of robotaxi market and is expected to propel the growth of the global robotaxi market during the forecast period.
