FRANKFURT (Reuters) - Revenues from autonomous driving will not ramp up until 2030 and beyond, the chief executive of German auto supplier Continental AG said on Thursday.

“Until 2030, the market will be driven mainly by assistance systems. Significant revenues will only come in 2030 and thereafter,” Chief Executive Elmar Degenhart said in response to a question about when the market for fully autonomous vehicles will take off.

Degenhart was speaking at a press conference on Thursday to discuss the company’s earnings.
