Global HD Maps for Autonomous Vehicles Market Research Report 2021-2030


DUBLIN, August 6, 2021 / PRNewswire / – The “Global Market for HD Cards for Autonomous Vehicles by Solution (Cloud Based, Integrated), LOA (L2, L3, L4, L5), Usage (Passenger & Commercial), Vehicle Type, Services (advertising, mapping, Location, Update, Maintenance) and Region – Forecast until 2030 “has been added to offer.

The global market for HD cards for autonomous vehicles is estimated at $ 1.4 billion in 2021 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 31.7% over the forecast period, reaching $ 16.9 billion by 2030.

HD cards are mainly used in autonomous vehicles. These are the cards designed for use by the machines that drive autonomous vehicles. HD maps offer high-precision location, environmental awareness, planning and decision-making, as well as real-time navigation cloud services for autonomous vehicles. OEMs around the world are investing in the development of autonomous vehicles.

Although Level 5 fully autonomous vehicles will not be commercially available until 2025, many related technologies have already been developed and thousands of patent applications have been filed to secure intellectual property rights. Ford held the most patents related to autonomous vehicle technology, followed by Toyota at the end of 2020. Since 2011, Ford has filed 14,354 patents and 13,000 patents have been filed by Toyota at the end of 2020.

With the growing trend of autonomous driving technology, the global HD maps market is expected to grow at a significant rate in the future. The promising market for autonomous car rental services and increasing investment in autonomous driving tech startups are expected to drive the HD card market.

In addition, increased R&D activities related to HD cards by major HD card vendors and several startups will further fuel the growth of HD cards for the autonomous vehicle market. However, high investment costs and slow adoption rates in developing countries are considered to be the main constraints for this market.

North America is estimated to be the largest market for autonomous vehicle HD cards during the forecast period. The North American market is primarily driven by the growing demand for a safe, efficient and convenient driving experience; increased investment in autonomous vehicle technology; and a strong presence of HD card suppliers.

The increase in government support and the availability of suitable infrastructure for semi-autonomous and autonomous vehicles are expected to drive market growth in the region. Asia Oceania is expected to grow at the highest CAGR of 34.3%. China, Japan, and South Korea are the key countries in the region leading the rapid development. Government support for autonomous vehicle technology is also a key factor for the growth of the Asia-Oceania market.

Some of the major players in the HD maps for autonomous vehicles market are TomTom (the Netherlands), ICI Technologies (the Netherlands), Waymo (US), NVIDIA (US), Baidu (China), Dynamic Map Platform (Japan), Nav Info (China) and Zenrin (United States).

These players have long-term supply contracts with major automakers and developers of autonomous vehicle technologies. These companies have adopted the strategies of new product development, acquisitions, agreements, collaborations, expansions, joint ventures, partnerships and supply contracts to gain ground on the HD card for the HD card market. autonomous vehicles. Partnership and collaboration are the strategies most widely adopted by major players.
