“BEV segment is estimated to be the promising segment in the automotive LiDAR market during the forecast period”
BEV is expected to be the promising segment by electric vehicle type during the forecast period. According to primary inputs, the penetration of BEVs is anticipated to increase in the coming years due to strict emission norms introduced by governments of various countries and the increased driving range of electric vehicles. Governments of some countries now provide subsidies for environment-friendly cars to encourage the use of BEVs. The BEV segment is expected to have a noticeable growth rate. Sales of BEV in 2020 were approximately 2 million units, which increased to 4.7 million units in 2021. The BEV sales clearly show that the BEV segment witnessed a growth of approximately 130% in 2021 over 2020. All these factors, are expected to augment revenues for BEV segment of the automotive LiDAR market during the forecast period.
