In Europe, the prevalent laws pave the way for the growth of the autonomous car market. The rules regarding the intellectual property, product liability, corporate/M&A transactions, and cybersecurity provide a conducive environment for the European autonomous car market to prosper.

For instance, an amendment was made to the German Road Traffic Act in June 2017, enabling the driver to relinquish driving control to an autonomous car. Today, semi-autonomous cars (level 1 to level 3), wherein the steering and acceleration/deacceleration can be controlled by the vehicle itself, are already in operation, but the driver still needs to be on board to control the car during an emergency. But major original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and technology providers are developing level 4 and level 5 autonomous cars as the government of several European countries have given their nod to carry out the testing of driverless cars on public roads, albeit under certain conditions and a highly supervised environment. These developments provide a vast growth prospect for the European autonomous car market.

Based on vehicle autonomy, the European autonomous car market is classified into semi-autonomous car and fully autonomous car. During the historical period, semi-autonomous cars held the entire market share in terms of sales volume. However, with the launch of fully autonomous cars from 2023, this category is expected to register faster growth during the forecast period.

Based on automation level, the fully autonomous cars category in the European autonomous car market has been categorized into level 4 and level 5. Of the two, level 4 autonomous cars are expected to hold larger market share, in terms of volume, during the forecast period.

In recent years, the European autonomous car market has witnessed a significant number of collaborations and partnerships. For instance, Fiat-Chrysler entered into a partnership with the BMW Group in 2018 to receive hardware and software assistance from them. They further tied up with Intel for receiving computer chips for their vehicles and with Continental and Delphi for autonomous vehicle parts. Furthermore, PSA Group entered into an alliance with an autonomous vehicle start-up, Almotive, with the purpose of initiating the testing of level 4 autonomous cars. The increasing number of collaboration and partnerships has been seen as a major trend in the market.

Germany held the largest volume share, of over 20%, in the European autonomous car market, in 2018. This is due to the presence of numerous OEMs in the country, which are introducing new models with higher levels of automation. In addition, car manufacturers and their tier-1 suppliers in Germany had filed much more patents for autonomous cars than in most other countries across the continent. From 2010 to 2017, more than 5,800 autonomous vehicle patents were filed worldwide, out of which about 51.0% of the registered patents came from Germany. These recent developments in the autonomous car market in the country are predicted to benefit the overall European market during the forecast years.
