Asia Pacific is estimated to be the fastest growing market during the forecast period, due to the development related to autonomous vehicles in countries such as China, Japan, South Korea, and Singapore. The key driver in China is the growing concern on pollution and the growing number of vehicles on the road leading to traffic congestions. Also, China is home to manufacturers such as DiDi, and Baidu which are highly focusing on robo-taxis in the country. Baidu has developed an autonomous driving platform called Apollo. They have partnered with the Swedish car maker, Volvo, to produce self-driving cars for their fleet. Baidu has decided to start pilot testing in Changsha. The fleet is expected to reach 100 by the end of 2019. Other countries in the region such as Japan, South Korea, and Singapore are also investing heavily in the development of autonomous vehicles. Nissan and an internet venture DeNA have a joint venture called Easy Ride for autonomous cabs. Easy Ride is using 100% electric Nissan Leaf in the pilot testing. Easy Ride is expected to roll out for masses by 2020 during the Olympic Games in Tokyo.
