For instance, the Mercedez-Benz EQS SUV, launched in September 2023, comes with a Level 2 ADAS system that includes features such as adaptive cruise control, lane centering assist, and blind spot monitoring. It is also available with a Level 3 ADAS system that allows the driver to take their hands off the wheel in certain conditions.

 

Consumer demand for enhanced infotainment, connectivity, and in-car entertainment experiences is propelling the growth of the automotive embedded system market. Vehicles are becoming more connected, offering features like touchscreens, voice recognition, smartphone integration, navigation, and internet connectivity. Embedded systems power these functionalities, providing seamless communication between the vehicle, its components, and external services.
 

As user expectations for technology-rich driving environments increase, automakers invest in advanced embedded systems to meet these demands. For instance, in November 2022, BMW announced that it would invest ?30 billion in electric vehicles and autonomous technology over the next five years. The company is developing a self-driving car called iNext expected to be launched in 2025.
 

However, integrating advanced embedded systems in vehicles can increase manufacturing costs due to the need for specialized hardware, software development, and testing. As vehicles become more technologically advanced, the complexity of embedded systems also rises, requiring more resources and expertise for design, implementation, and maintenance. High costs and complexity can deter some manufacturers from adopting or fully integrating advanced embedded systems, especially in lower-priced vehicle segments.
 

COVID-19 Impact

The COVID-19 pandemic significantly impacted the automotive embedded system market. Lockdowns and disruptions to supply chains temporarily stalled production, affecting the availability of components crucial to embedded systems. Automakers delayed product launches and adopted cost-cutting measures. However, the crisis highlighted the importance of connected features for remote diagnostics, OTA updates, and contactless interfaces. Instances include increased interest in touchless controls and voice assistants, underscoring the sector's adaptability in response to changing consumer preferences amid the pandemic's challenges.
 

Automotive Embedded System Market Trends

Integration of Over-the-Air (OTA) Updates and software management practices in modern automobiles is among the prominent trends that could strengthen the automotive embedded system industry outlook through 2032. As vehicles become more connected, automakers are looking to implement more sophisticated software management practices. In March 2023, Volvo Cars announced that it would adopt agile software development practices for its autonomous driving technology. The company is also using AI to test and validate its software.
 

OTA updates allow manufacturers to remotely update software, fix bugs, and introduce new features to vehicles after they've been sold. This trend reduces the need for physical recalls and enables continuous improvement and customization of vehicle functionality. Effective OTA systems require robust security measures to prevent unauthorized access, making cybersecurity an integral part of this trend, thus favoring market dynamics.
