Adoption of new policies: Opportunity
Gulf countries are the most opportunistic region for the growth of self driving vehicles market in Middle East, but adoption of favourable policies is one of the major factors delaying the growth of self driving vehicles market. Most GCC governments have yet to adopt policies regarding the self driving vehicle which is reasonable given the nascent state of technology.

GCC countries will benefit from the autonomous vehicles technology, more than any other region in the world. The technology can reduce fuel costs, radically reduce the number of accidents and can create digital technological jobs. GCC, policy makers need to take deliberate action today in order to create right conditions for autonomous vehicles to flourish.
