Automotive Embedded System Market Overview

The global automotive embedded system market is anticipated to observe an extensive growth in the coming years, due to growing trend of vehicle electrification and automation, growing demand for safety and comfort features in automobiles, and government stringent regulations for automobile emission in many countries. In addition, increasing demand for electric and hybrid vehicles is also fuelling the demand for embedded systems in automobiles. Furthermore, advancement in hardware and software technologies in recent years is further expected to boost the growth of the market in the near future.

On the basis of type, the automotive embedded system market is bifurcated into hardware and software. The hardware category is expected to continue to hold the major share in the market. However, software is expected to be the fastest growing category, owing to increasing demand for human machine interference (HMI) in automobiles and increasing software content in advanced applications of the vehicles.

On the basis of component, the automotive embedded system market is categorized into sensors, microcontrollers, transceivers, and memory devices. Sensors are expected to be the largest category during the forecast period. However, on the basis of application, safety and security is expected to be the largest category in the market. Mandatory regulation for installation of safety features in automobile such as electronic brake-force distribution (EBD) system, tire pressure management system (TPMS), airbag, antilock braking system (ABS), and electronic stability system is expected to drive the market of this category during the forecast period.

Geographically, Asia-Pacific is anticipated to be the largest automotive embedded system market during the forecast period, due to increasing vehicle production in many countries of this region, improving socio-economy condition, and growing demand for electric vehicles, especially in China.
