Autonomous Vehicles

The global autonomous vehicles market is expected to reach an industry size of $126.8 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 19.6% according to a report by Research and Markets.

These events may have been a factor in the sudden increase of patent applications filed on autonomous vehicles.
