  •  Morgan Stanley, Apple Autonomous Car estimations
    • Technology connected to an autonomous car may be the ticket. ”We note that Apple prefers to develop and design its products in-house and to outsource the actual production and assembly process. This could be enabled by cars going autonomous – we estimate over 60% of the value of the autonomous car will come from software vs. 10% today,” she wrote.

      Other points covered in the research note:

      –Total Market: The automotive TAM (total addressable market) is $10 trillion of installed base, with and annual new vehicle revenues of [roughly] $1.6 trillion. “This dwarfs smartphones at $400 [billion] and PCs at $266 [billion] of annual revenue…If AAPL were to corner just 25% of the value of the car, it would be equivalent to the entire smartphone industry today.” (Source: Forbes)
