The global automotive embedded system market size was valued at USD 5.32 billion in 2017 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.1% over the forecast period 2019–2026.
An automatic embedded vehicle management system can monitor vehicle maintenance, theft, location, and condition data. Due to locality restrictions for sensors and actuators and the growing complexity of the electronic architectures embedded in vehicles, the automotive industry is forced to use a distributed approach to implement a set of functions. The approach taken by the vehicle manufacturer and the system supplier will determine the design process for an electronically embedded system. The development of infotainment systems that offer better safety features, entertainment options, and additional functionality has been made possible by the evolving mobility industries. A safe, enjoyable, and helpful driving experience is made possible by car infotainment systems, which are the focus of the future of in-car entertainment.
An electronic or computer system specifically created to control and access data of an electronic-based system installed in vehicles is known as an automotive embedded system. This system includes an application-specific integrated circuit, a single-chip microcontroller like the cortex, advanced RISC machines (ARM), microprocessors, field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs), and digital signal processors (DSPs) (ASICs). These embedded systems are used in various functions, including audio, security, and ignition systems. Over the past two decades, the automotive industry has adopted more sophisticated embedded systems than ever.

Stringent regulations regarding airbags have fueled the deployment of embedded systems in the automotive industry, electronic brake force distribution (EBD), tire pressure monitoring systems (TPMS), antilock braking systems (ABS), and other safety features around the world. To increase driver and passenger safety through dashboard warning systems, the Transportation Recall Enhancement, Accountability, and Documentation (TREAD) Act of 2008 mandated the deployment of suitable tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) technology in all passenger vehicles. The TREAD Act states that the European Union has mandated TPMS in all passenger car models since November 1, 2012. All passenger cars must now have airbags and an ABS, thanks to the U.S. Highway Safety Act of 1991. The automotive embedded systems market is anticipated to grow due to the need for embedded technology in these systems for effective operation.
The auto industry requires these systems due to the rising demand for smarter cars and power-saving automotive technology. During the anticipated period, this demand will support the growth of the automotive embedded market. Reliability, adaptability, power, speed, accuracy, and efficiency are qualities that automotive embedded systems possess. A vital role for embedded systems in smart products. Therefore, the increasing demand for these devices drives the market for automotive embedded systems. Additionally, the market growth has been aided by increased demand for portable computing devices and multimedia products like parking sensors and GPS in the automotive industry. The automotive embedded market has been boosted in recent years by an increase in the adoption of electric vehicles, a shift in the focus on the safety features of vehicles, and the growing electrical hybridization of vehicles. Over the anticipated period, these factors are anticipated to drive the market.
Several presumptions are made regarding the security of embedded devices, including that they are not susceptible to cyberattacks, that they are not desirable targets for hackers, and that encryption and authentication provide sufficient security. In contrast to standard PCs, embedded systems are created to carry out specific tasks. Due to the lack of additional processing resources, these devices typically use less memory and fewer processing cycles. Because of this, PC-specific security solutions cannot resolve the security issues faced by embedded devices. In actuality, most embedded devices won't work with PC security programs. Most embedded systems do not receive routine security updates. Once the embedded device is in use, it continues to operate for years or even decades using the software that came with it. Since the embedded operating system might not have automated capabilities to allow simple firmware updates that ensure embedded security, a capability to allow security updates needs to be built into the device if the device needs a remote software update.
The global market for automotive embedded systems is expected to grow faster than other markets due to rising demand for electric vehicles and embedded system adoption in hybrid and electric vehicles due to their ability to increase efficiency and lower emissions. The demand for E.V.s is expected to increase globally, and the adoption of embedded systems in electric and hybrid vehicles is expected to increase due to these vehicles' capacity to cut pollution and increase efficiency. These factors are anticipated to fuel growth in the global automotive embedded systems market over the forecast period. Increasing consumer focus on vehicle safety features, rising automation in the automotive industry, and government initiatives to reduce emissions and improve fuel efficiency are anticipated to support the expansion of the automotive embedded system market over the forecast period. Additionally, the market is expected to grow in the coming years due to rising demand for connected cars and increased demand for sensors and engineering systems in vehicles.
