The Prospects For The Automotive Industry In The Future
Because of two primary trends, namely electrification and connectivity, the future of the automobile industry appears to hold a lot of potential for growth in the long run. The market for electric vehicles is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate of 21.7% during the next few years. It is anticipated that by the year 2030, it would have increased to 39.21 million units from 8.1 million units. Electric vehicles are undeniably the way of the future when it comes to transportation and mobility.
The sector is looking into several novel avenues of innovation. The incorporation of Internet of Things (IoT) technologies into the sector are enabling manufacturers to apply cutting-edge solutions that can bring vehicles to a level of intelligence that is almost identical to that of artificial intelligence. The term “Internet of Things” (IoT) refers to the process of incorporating various electronic components, such as sensors, apps, and cloud computing, into motor vehicles.
The Following Are Some Of The Most Significant Trends In This Sector:
- Electric vehicles will make up 30 percent of the total fleet of vehicles on the road by the year 2030.
- There will be around 33 million autonomous cars (also known as driverless automobiles) on the road by the year 2040.
- Because of IoT and 5G, there will be an increase in the amount of connectivity found in vehicles.
- Estimates say that by the year 2027, there will be more than one million hydrogen-powered cars and trucks on the roads around the world.
- It is anticipated that the premium automobile industry would see unanticipated growth.
