How Research And Development Will Drive The Demand For X-By-Wire In Coming Years?

Advanced control technologies such as radar, laser, GPS, computer vision, and others are required for a driverless car or unmanned ground vehicle that can sense and navigate without human intervention. The elimination of mechanical links and the use of computer-controlled technologies like as brake by wire, steer by wire, suspension by wire, and shift by wire are all required for driverless transportation.

Tesla, General Motors, Uber, Google, BMW, Volvo, Nissan, Ford, and other technology suppliers and automakers are either developing or have expressed an interest in developing self-driving cars.

Furthermore, many automotive companies are expected to work on autonomous technology, which will function as a driving force for the X-by-wire market. Likewise, focus on urban mobility is compelling automakers to implement new technologies and change the way transportation services are organized and delivered. Technologies such as steer-by-wire, brake-by-wire, and drive-by-wire will play a key role in constructing future urban mobility and subsequently enhancing the X-by-wire market.

How High Initial Cost And Suspicions Over Reliability And Safety May Threaten The Growth Of X-By-Wire?

The material composition and manufacturing process associated with X-by-wire technologies results in the high cost of end products, which is a major factor restraining the adoption of new and innovative safety systems and products among pocket friendly economy cars. In the existing competitive automotive industry, the cost is a major differentiating factor.

Preference for low-cost alternatives is a significant trend in the market, which is expected to significantly affect the adoption of advanced technologies and also affect market growth negatively.

There has been continuous debate in the market over the reliability of X-by-wire systems. End users are worried about the malfunctioning of electronic control units and sensors that can lead to road accidents. Regulatory authorities see mechanical systems to be more failsafe than electronic systems.

X-by-wire systems are complex in nature and further, existing concerns regarding their reliability and durability are anticipated to impede the adoption rate of X by-wire technologies.

What Was The Impact Of The COVID-19 Crisis On The X-By-Wire Market?

Emergence of COVID-19 in 2020 had a massive impact on the global economy. A reduction in demand in a number of industries, as well as supply chain problems, had damaged the global industry. Furthermore, due to extensive lockdowns and movement restrictions, economic activity had come to a halt.

The closure of automotive production plants had an impact on X-by-wire growth rate in 2020. The drop in vehicle sales had a significant impact on the global X-by-wire sales, but it will undoubtedly expand in the coming years as the need for advanced technology products grows.
