Increasing Demand for Autonomous Cars to Boost Demand for Market
The 3D map system market is projected to flourish in coming years because of increasing adoption of newer technologies and the capacity of vehicles. These developments are a part of product differentiation by original equipment manufacturer (OEM). Autonomous cars have gained popularity and are being tested for on road performance by various companies. These autonomous cars are equipped with live HD maps giving constant information about the current traffic conditions, road closure, and weather conditions. Increasing demand for drivers assistance systems that is capable to facilitate the drivers by guiding them through acceleration and decelerating of the vehicles with a better understanding of the surroundings. Therefore, the 3D map system market is projected to rise in sync with the development of drivers assistance system.
High Cost Involved with Autonomous Vehicles May Restrain the Market
Conversely, the 3D map system market is also experiencing certain restraints that may hamper the growth of the market in coming years. High cost related with continuous development in 3D maps systems is one of the significant factors hindering the market growth. Moreover, high additional cost attributed to constant updates to get accurate data could restrain the market to grow at an increasing rate. However, increasing preference towards internet of things and availability of fully automated vehicles will grow the 3D map system market during the forecast period.
