Global Statistics Representing Automotive Embedded System Market Scenario

An embedded system in any type of vehicle is an electronic system specifically designed to control and access data in an electronic-based system. These systems include single-chip microcontrollers such as cortex and ARM as well as microprocessors such as FPGAs, DSPs, and ASICs. Advanced embedded systems have been gaining traction in the automobile sector since the past few years. A number of automotive manufacturers have assembled the latest embedded systems into their production vehicles for various functionalities such as ignition, braking system, airbags, in-vehicle networking, engine assembly, security system, and audio system.

Information on vehicle theft, maintenance, location, and condition can be monitored with the use of an automatic embedded vehicle management system. The increasing complexity of electronic architectures that are embedded in a vehicle and locality constraints for sensors and actuators are compelling the automotive industry to adopt a distributed approach to implement a set of functions. The designing process of an electronically-embedded system depends upon the approach of the vehicle manufacturer and system supplier.

The global automotive embedded system market was valued at USD 5.32 billion in 2017 and is expected to grow at CAGR 8.1% over the forecast period 2019–2026.

Market Dynamics

Ever-growing conventional fuel prices, innovation, and demand for electric vehicles across various regions are the key factors driving the automotive embedded system market. Further, strict regulations regarding vehicular carbon emission, antilock braking systems (ABS), electronic brake-force distribution (EBD), tire pressure management systems (TPMS), and airbags across every model of any vehicle by various governments are also propelling market expansion. Moreover, the demand for advanced safety, comfort, and convenience for drivers and passengers are expected to boost market growth in the coming years.

On the other hand, automotive embedded systems use low-level electronic components and have a limited lifespan and high power utilization, which are expected to hamper market growth to some extent.
