By Offering

The diagnostic software segment held a substantial automotive diagnostic scan tools market share in 2018 due to growing demand for several vehicle alert systems on the dashboard or in-app notification related to vehicle health. The increasing demand for passenger convenience is driving the demand for vehicle system testing software. The vehicle system testing software eases human-machine interfaces, streamlines workflow, and increases savings on development hardware. The automakers and OEMs are increasingly adopting system testing software as it improves the safety and reliability of their products, differentiates their offerings with telematics & infotainment devices, and offers OTA software update in real-time.
 

By Application

The emission control segment is estimated to grow significantly at a substantial CAGR over the forecast timeline due to declining air quality index across the globe. The vehicles are fitted with emission control software and hardware, such as catalytic converter, to reduce carbon emission in vehicles. Stringent government regulations related to the vehicle emission control is proliferating the growth of emission control software and hardware. For instance, since January 1993, all vehicles sold in the European region are fitted with a catalytic converter, which helps in the reduction of vehicle emissions. Additionally, the government of Brazil and FCA are working very closely on R&D opportunities to reduce CO2 emissions through improvements in ethanol-fueled engines.
