A majority of embedded systems in the automotive sector are rugged in nature, task-specific, and error-free. Further, they have simplified hardware and are relatively inexpensive and capable of operating in a wide variety of environments. With development in automotive technology, a gradual transformation has been observed in the equipment utilized from mechanical systems to electronic-based systems. These embedded systems are applicable for various components such as dynamic traction & stability control, a navigation system, rain-sensing system, auto-vehicle parking system, drive-by-wire, vehicle infotainment, heads-up display, and adaptive cruise control.
On the basis of region, the global automotive embedded system market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Latin America and the Middle East & Africa (LAMEA).
North America is expected to witness high market growth during the forecast period. According to a report presented by the Executive Office of the President of the U.S., various strategies such as investment and development in AI are beneficial for cyber-defense and the detection of fraudulent transactions. Moreover, the Canadian government has identified challenges in its healthcare system with respect to rapid development and advancement in medicine for a better future. Thus, the Senate Committee is encouraging the country’s researchers, entrepreneurs, and futurists to work out actionable recommendations.
Asia Pacific is tipped to be one of the fastest growing regions during the forecast period with developing countries such as China, Japan, India, and South Korea driving growth. Supportive government regulations, presence of global market leaders due to favorable Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) policies, and widespread availability of educated manpower are the market drivers for Asia Pacific automotive embedded system market. For instance, in August 2018, Blue Prism, one of the market leaders in robotic process automation announced the opening of their four new offices in Hong Kong and Singapore from APAC region whereas, Singapore will be the Asia Pacific’s headquarter.
Well-developed countries in Europe, such as Germany, France, the U.K., and Italy are pegged to be mature markets for automotive embedded systems. For instance, in November 2017, Capgemini announced a two-year agreement with the U.K Cabinet office for the development of a Robotic Process Automation (RPA) Center of Excellence (CoE) to automate its administrative processes.
South America is in need of a sustainable solution for long-term productivity and economic growth in the automotive embedded system market as South American countries are extending their barriers from health epidemic control to fraud identification in electricity distribution.
