Robo-Taxi Market

Robo-Taxi Market by Application (Goods and Passenger), Level of Autonomy (L4 and L5), Vehicle (Car and Shuttle/Van), Service (Rental and Station Based), Propulsion (Electric, Hybrid, and Fuel Cell), Component, and Region - Global Forecast to 2030

Report Code: AT 7054 Apr, 2019, by

[135 Pages Report] A Robo-taxi combines the benefits of an autonomous vehicle and e-cab hailing services by operating without a driver and focusing on ‘Mobility as a Service’ (MaaS). It is expected to reduce the cost of ownership and improve fleet management. It would offer a safe, convenient, and economical mode of transportation. OEMs have partnered with autonomous driving system providers and fleet managers to launch Robo-taxi services. Since most developments can be seen in the field of electric vehicles, the Robo-taxi market may initially feature electrically-propelled vehicles.

The global Robo-taxi market is projected to grow from 2,024 units in 2020 to 3,830,912 units by 2030, at a CAGR of 112.67%. The rising concerns over road safety, emissions, and the increasing demand for ride-hailing services have led to the growth of the market. Autonomous vehicles also help in optimizing cost to the fleet operator. Newer business models like mobility as a service would provide another sustainable and profitable revenue stream in the future.

Robo-Taxi Market

By vehicle type, car segment to hold the largest market share during the forecast period

Companies are investing billions in Robo-taxis to develop autonomous driving, connectivity, electrification, and shared mobility, which will drive the market. Also, robotic assistance used for delivery, supplies pick up, and other routine tasks by autonomous cars for small businesses could be one of the key adoption factors for the Robo-taxis. Robo-taxis will construe emerging challenges regarding car ownership or Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) model. Car companies producing generic, as well as Robo taxis, are adopting advanced production technologies in the race to deploy autonomous vehicles.

Robo-Taxi Market By Vehicle Type

By application, passenger transportation segment is projected to be the largest and the fastest market during the forecast period

Passenger transportation by Robo-taxis is expected to lower the cost of car ownership with greater convenience and less number of road accidents. Waymo is at a stage of building business models around their self-driving car technology. Other companies have aimed to reduce the cost of taxi or delivery services substantially. Once the technology is proven to be safe, Robo-taxis will soon become a standard mode for passenger transportation.

Robo-Taxi Market By Application

Asia Pacific to dominate the Robo-taxi market during the forecast period

The Asia Pacific region is expected to be the fastest-growing market for Robo-taxi during the forecast period and emerge as the largest Robo-taxi market by 2030.

The Asia Pacific region comprises emerging economies such as China and India, along with developed nations such as Japan, and is the largest market for automotive. The key drivers for the Robo-taxi market in China are the growing concern about pollution and the increasing number of vehicles on the road that has led to traffic congestion. Also, the Chinese government has structured guidelines in place for the testing and implementation of the Robo-taxis. These guidelines have encouraged several companies to test their vehicles in China. Also, the increasing demand for electric cars in China and Japan augurs well for Robo-taxi deployment. The development of support infrastructure, such as charging stations, has encouraged OEMs to test their vehicles in this region. Also, favorable government policies to adopt EVs have attracted many players to deploy Robo-taxis in this region.

Market Dynamics

Driver: Race to deploy autonomous vehicles

A Robo-taxi is an upcoming megatrend that is likely to disrupt the automotive industry. The evolution of the Robo-taxi market began with autonomous driving, connectivity, electrification, and shared mobility. According to a report by McKinsey, Robo-taxi is proposed to reduce the fleet operator cost of ownership by 30–50% when compared to private-vehicle ownership, and by 70% against shared mobility, significantly turning the mobility market upside down. The major players in this market, such as Waymo and Uber, have invested billions of dollars in autonomous car development, while automotive manufacturers such as Daimler are testing prototypes.

Restraint: High R&D cost for implementation

Deploying a full-fledged Robo-taxi service requires high investments because components such as ultrasonic sensors, cameras, and LiDAR are quite expensive. Also, the deployment and implementation of Robo-taxi fleets is a complicated and time-consuming process. Currently, level 4 and level 5 autonomous vehicles are not yet available for tests and analyses. Therefore, the deployment of Robo-taxi services in a comprehensive manner is tedious. Moreover, software development for Robo-taxis is a complex process, and widespread application of level 5 autonomous vehicles is not only capital-intensive but is subject to regulatory compliance as well.

Opportunity: Government initiatives to drive the market growth for Robo-taxis

The race to deploy autonomous vehicles, especially in developed nations, has caught the attention of public policy-makers in autonomous transportation and its potential impact. Governments of various countries have already loosened legal hindrances to performing the testing of self-driving vehicles. The Ministry of Transport and Communications of Finland has gone a step ahead as it has prepared a legal structure for testing autonomous vehicles. Similarly, countries such as Austria, France, Netherlands, UK, and the US are also following suit.

Challenge: Navigation in crowded spaces

Robo-taxis would wait for people to cross zebra crossings and move after that. However, in developing countries, jaywalking is a commonplace practice with people passing by a zebra crossing randomly. This practice poses a significant challenge for Robo-taxis in developing countries. Crowded areas would also create a problem for these vehicles and would be a major challenge for implementing Robo-taxis. Technological advancements and strict implementation of regulations for pedestrians will help resolve this issue. Some organizations are working to solve the problem with the help of real-time data. For instance, Mobileye crowdsources real-time road condition reports from vehicles equipped with intelligent fleet features and feeds the data for use in self-driving vehicles, making sure networked smart cars can navigate real roads better.

The study involved 4 major activities in estimating the current size of the robo-taxi market. Exhaustive secondary research was done to collect information on the market, the peer market, and the parent market. The next step was to validate these findings, assumptions, and sizing with the industry experts across value chains through primary research. The top-down approach was employed to estimate the complete market size. Thereafter, market breakdown and data triangulation were used in estimating the market size of segments and subsegments.

Secondary Research

In the secondary research process, various secondary sources such as company annual reports/presentations, press releases, industry association publications [for example, publications of automobile OEMs, American Automobile Association (AAA), country-level automotive associations and European Alternative Fuels Observatory (EAFO)], automobile magazines, articles, directories, technical handbooks, World Economic Outlook, trade websites, technical articles, and databases (for example, Marklines, and Factiva) have been used to identify and collect information useful for an extensive commercial study of the global robo-taxi market.

Primary Research

Extensive primary research has been conducted after acquiring an understanding of the Robo-taxi market scenario through secondary research. Several primary interviews have been conducted with market experts from both the demand-side [robo-taxi operators (in terms of services, country-level government associations, and trade associations)] and supply-side (OEMs and component manufacturers) across 4 major regions, namely, North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Rest of the World. Approximately 14% and 86% of primary interviews have been conducted from the demand- and supply-side, respectively.
