The global automotive vehicle-to-everything (V2X) market size was USD 529.6 million in 2020. The global impact of COVID-19 has been unprecedented and staggering, with automotive V2X witnessing a negative demand shock across all regions amid the pandemic. Based on our analysis, the global market exhibited a decline in growth of 10.8% in 2020 as compared to the average year-on-year growth during 2017-2019. The market is projected to grow from USD 628.9 million in 2021 to USD 7,351.9 million in 2028 at a CAGR of 42.1% in the 2021-2028 period. The sudden rise in CAGR is attributable to this market’s demand and growth, returning to pre-pandemic levels once the pandemic is over.

Vehicle-to-everything enables real-time communication between the vehicle and the surroundings, It includes vehicle-to-vehicle, vehicle-to-pedestrian, and vehicle-to-infrastructure, among other use cases. The technology also facilitates autonomous driving, traffic flow optimization, and road safety by enabling vehicles to communicate with each other and the surrounding infrastructure. This increased situational awareness enables more connected and intelligent solutions.

COVID-19 Pandemic has Accelerated the Development of Vehicle-To-Everything Worldwide

Investment in future-mobility technologies has continued throughout the pandemic. According to a study conducted by McKinsey regarding the mobility investment landscape, the ACES technologies that attract investment are mostly related to autonomous driving, connectivity, and electrification. According to the study, connectivity, vehicle-to-infrastructure, and vehicle-to-everything (V2I/V2X) communication solutions attracted approximately $18 billion in spending.

The pandemic has also accelerated regulatory changes with regards to cellular vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X). In late 2020, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) voted to reallocate 75 MHz, with the upper 30MHz previously allocated for Dedicated Short-Range Communications (DSRC) services now assigned to C-V2X. DSRC was viewed as crucial to unlocking vehicle-to-vehicle use cases and increasing safety features. However, the FCC's decision will essentially eliminate DSRC progress and fast-track the adoption of C-V2X.

Since early 2020, the pandemic-induced challenges have also stimulated digital transformation and development. Before covid-19, autonomous vehicles (AVs) were limited by technical capabilities and not as widely used in China as they are now. The pandemic stimulated a need for AVs to deliver supplies, improve safety, and advance new infrastructures. For instance, in 2020, Baidu Apollo won bids to build V2X pilot zones in Shanxi province’s Yangquan city, Chongqing’s Yongchuan district, and Anhui province’s Hefei city.

Increasing Adoption of C-V2X will Positively Influence Growth

Cellular V2X is supported by leading mobile equipment makers, telecommunications operators, and many automakers, including Daimler, SAIC, Ford, Tesla, Audi, PSA, Nissan, BMW, and Lexus. For instance, beginning in 2022, Ford has committed to deploying C-V2X in all new U.S. vehicle models, pending the Federal Communications Commission vote on spectrum allocation. The company also plans to deploy this technology in all Ford vehicles in China in 2021. Thus, the increasing adoption of C-V2X will positively influence the growth of this market.


Traffic Safety Benefits Will Drive the Growth of the Market

According to a 2018 WHO report on road safety, vehicular traffic-related incidents result in more than 1.3 million fatalities every year. According to research conducted by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), road accidents can be reduced by 80% with the help of this technology. It could help reduce road traffic deaths by detecting and alerting the driver of invisible objects.

For instance, an automotive V2X application such as Emergency Brake Light could alert the driver of the following vehicle in advance if it detects a sudden deceleration by the leading car in a blind turn, thus avoiding a crash. According to estimates by the U.S. DOT, The V2X technology would save more than 1,000 lives/year and reduce 2.3 million non-fatal injuries. Therefore, these factors will boost the growth of the market.

Economic Savings due to Vehicle-To-Everything to Augment Growth

Congested roads cost around 100 billion euros annually in Europe. Economic savings potential with a safer and more efficient transportation system are enormous. According to the U.S. DOT, annually, around USD 871 billion can be saved in the U.S. with the help of automotive V2X.

Blocked roads cause supply chain delays, increase the complexity and cost of doing business, and lower productivity. With vehicle-to-everything technology, congestion-causing factors can be detected in advance, and vehicles can react accordingly. By combining simulation models with real-time data, optimized routes can be identified to make rides faster and more efficient. These factors are attributed to the increasing demand for this technology in the automotive industry.


Challenges Related to Vehicle-To-Everything Testing Will Restrain the Growth of the Market

Some of the challenges faced in automotive V2X testing include; 1) Huge costs in setting up test tracks, actual vehicles, and the infrastructure required for testing, 2) setting up high-density traffic with millions of scenarios is practically challenging & cost-intensive. 3) certain traffic scenarios are fatal to test with humans. For example, testing of applications such as Abnormal Vehicle Warning (AVW), Control Loss Warning (CLW), Hazardous Location Warning (HLN), 4) non-availability of the specific spectrum a deterrent to testing on real roads, 5) Replicating test scenarios in the real world is challenging. Hence, these factors will restrain the automotive V2X market growth.
