In-vehicle AI Robot Market Overview

Modern automotive industry is witnessing immense technological advancements especially towards automation and intelligence in the vehicle. In-vehicle AI robot refers to the cutting-edge technology that enables automobile to operate autonomously without any human guidance. It can operate and control different functions using various sensors and electronic control units (ECUs). In-vehicle Al robots consists of highly precise sensors, algorithms, microprocessors etc., these devices communicate with each other mostly through Controlled Area Network (CAN) protocol in order to control various inter-dependent operations such as braking, acceleration, steering etc. In-vehicle AI systems such as advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), and driver monitoring systems are catching maximum attention withing the automotive industry.

COVID-19 Impact on the Global In-vehicle AI Robot Market:

Nationwide lockdowns amid alarming health emergency caused due to spread of novel coronavirus has hindered growth of the in-vehicle AI robot market, as automotive industry witnessed sharp downfall in the sales during the period. Several major countries had undergone significant supply-chain disruptions which destabilized the market for couple of years.

However, the market is observed to get rebounded since mid-2021 but still automotive manufacturing in several key regions such as Europe has not seen positive growth outlook. This has caused slowdown in the overall growth of the in-vehicle AI robot market globally.

In-vehicle AI Robot Market Dynamics


  • Increasing demand for vehicles those are safer & less prone to accident

  • Increasing sale of EV and luxury vehicles

    • The growing demand and awareness about vehicles those are safe and less prone to accident is likely to drive the market. Vehicles with AI robots are proved to be safer on roads as they eliminate accident caused due to human error. In addition to this, growing sale of new vehicles across key developing countries is expected to propel the market during forecast period.

    • Most of the luxury and premium cars are equipped with automated systems for improved user experience.  The growing per capita income as well as standard of living have created the demand for luxury vehicles all around the world. In 2022, luxury car manufacturers – Mercedes-Benz, Audi, and BMW — are witnessing increased demand for their premium vehicles in countries like India. Additionally, the need for more comfort and safety has led to the sales for luxury vehicles. Moreover, the leading market players are focusing on the development of premium & luxury vehicles and have started offering luxury vehicles in hatchbacks, superminis, and other models. Hence, an increase in sale of luxury vehicles is expected to drive the growth of the in-vehicle AI robot market during the forecast period.


  • Shortage of raw material

    • In addition to the lockdowns amid surge of COVID-19 pandemic and its adverse effects on the global supply chain, there were other unforeseen events such as shortage of semiconductor chip globally. Semiconductor chip is backbone of any electronics device and thus its shortage has affected significantly to the automotive industry as modern vehicles are equipped with several electronics systems for optimum performance. Although vehicle demand has surged, a shortage of semiconductor chip has forced OEMs to halt production lines or eliminate some popular features, such as heated seats, from their vehicle. In-vehicle AI robot market has also seen hostile effects of this global raw material shortage as automakers are withdrawing some AI features from vehicle in order to avoid delay in vehicle delivery to customers. In addition to this, amid imbalanced supply-demand ratio, price of semiconductor chip is witnessing rocket high which is resulting into increased overall prices of vehicles who has in-vehicle AI robots. Thus, lack of availability of raw material is acting as significant restraint to the global in-vehicle AI robot market.


  • Increased spending on new vehicle purchasing

  • Technological advancement within industry

    • Although prices of modern vehicle are witnessing new heights, customers are spending more in order to get latest technologies in modern automobiles. According to recent analysis from the US government’s Bureau of Labor Statistics, in 2022, the prices of new automotive vehicles rose by 12.4% as compared to previous year. On the other hand, the global economy regaining its shape after disruption caused by the pandemic, and it is being significantly contributed by the automotive industry. According to OICA, new vehicle sales in developed as well as developing regions such as Americas and Asia-Pacific has showcased positive growth outlook by at least 6%, while Africa region registered whopping growth of 24% in year 2021 as compared to 2020. In addition to this, sale of premium and luxury cars has also bolstered in recent period which is key segment for in-vehicle AI robot market as these cars are equipped with maximum AI technologies. For example, according to several reports, in 2022 automakers sold 2.48 million luxury vehicles in the US representing 13.2% increase as compared with preceding year. Such enthusiasm among auto-buyer is likely to create lucrative opportunities for in-vehicle AI robot manufacturers during the forecast period.=
