To determine the total addressable market (TAM) for robotaxis globally and in the US, especially those that will only fulfill trips under 6 miles.
There are a number of reports that detail the total addressable market for robotaxis. Below are some of our findings:
The global TAM for robotaxis could be worth $165 billion by 2030 and $7 trillion by 2050, according to a recent report by Mobileye.
According to another report by UBS, the global robotaxi market might be worth over $2 trillion a year by 2030.
In an independent report by Morgan Stanley, the firm estimates that the robotaxi industry could complete about 10 trillion miles in trips per year at the rate of $1 per mile, representing a total addressable market of $10 trillion by 2050.
The Morgan Stanley report also expects the industry to represent about 13 percent of US gross domestic product (GDP) when fully mature.
According to a publication by the US Department of Energy, 59.4 percent of trips driven in the US falls below 6 miles.
Projections for Short-Run Robotaxis
Based on estimates from Morgan Stanley and information from the US Department of Energy, we safely project the global TAM for short-run robotaxis (i.e., robotaxis that will only fulfill trips under 6 miles) to be worth 5.94 trillion by 2050 — that is, by calculating 10 trillion miles * $1/per mile * 59.4 percent of trips that will fall under 6 miles.
