Increasing government’s initiatives to develop new infrastructures such as highways and roads that facilitate use of autonomous cars is expected to increase demand for autonomous cars during the forecast period. For instance, according to India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF), the Government of India constructed 29583 Km highways in from 2014 to 2018. Moreover, regulations concerning carbon dioxide emission, dearth of conventional fuels, and increasing fuel prices is creating a highly conducive environment for adoption of alternative fuel vehicles such as electric vehicles (EV), which in turn also contributes to growth of the autonomous cars market.

Major restraining factor for growth of the global autonomous cars market is cyber security as these cars are incorporated with computer-based systems where data can be hacked very easily through car’s WiFi connection and the car can either be operate remotely by the hacker or vital function of the car such as braking and steering can be compromised, which may lead to an accident. Owing to this reason, the adoption of connected car or autonomous cars is expected to be affected negatively.
