Dublin, Sept. 24, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Research and Markets
( has announced the addition of the "Semi Autonomous Market For Passenger Car by Type, Technology, Geography & Autonomous Car - Global Trends & Forecast To 2018" report to their offering.

'Semi Autonomous Market For Passenger Car By Type (Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keep Assist, Autonomous Park Assist & Adaptive Lights), By Technology, By Geography, & Autonomous Car (Qualitative Trends & Technologies) - Global Trends & Forecast To 2018'

The automotive industry was one of the key industries affected by the economic downturn in 2008 (global sales 68.1 million units) and 2009 (global sales 65.4 million units). However, the scenario has changed since 2010 with global sales estimated at 74.6 million units. This upward trend continued in 2011 and 2012.

The present global demand for automobiles is increasing at a significant rate, indicating the pace at which the industry is heading out of the recovery phase. As stated in the recent publication of Organisation Internationale des Constructeurs d' Automobiles (OICA), global vehicle sales in 2012 reached 81.7 million units, of which, passenger car sales were 60.5 million units. With the escalation in vehicle numbers, there is an increase in road accidents, casualties, and deaths. In addition, the increase in the global vehicle fleet is increasing exhaust emissions and thereby greenhouse gases (GHGs), thus challenging environmental regulations.

The near-autonomous passenger car market is projected to be $10.6 billion in 2013 and is estimated to reach $21.4 billion by 2018, growing at CAGR of 15.08% over the same period. The flourishing demand for premium cars across the globe, along with existing as well as upcoming stringent safety regulations, will drive the market for near-autonomous passenger cars. The near-autonomous passenger car market in 2013 is projected to be dominated by Adaptive Cruise Control and Adaptive Front Lights, in terms of revenue.
