The rapid change in consumer preference for electric vehicles and premium cars that supply optimum power and speed is likely to foster automotive simulation software demand owing to its ability to provide fast acceleration and stable driving performance, enhance vehicle efficiency, and reduce carbon footprint, which is proliferating product uptake.

Additionally, the introduction of stringent vehicle safety regulations in numerous countries is set to provide lucrative opportunities for automotive simulation market outlook. The burgeoning focus of regulatory agencies on improving passenger safety and enabling OEMs to detect faults before customer use by incorporating automotive simulation software is predicted to augment industry dynamics. For instance, in September 2022, the UK Government’s Vehicle Certification Agency began evaluating the use of the Safety Pool Scenario Database in the approval process for automated driving systems. Built by experts from Silicon Valley-headquartered Deepen AI and the University of Warwick, Safety Pool is touted to be the largest public scenario database for testing autonomous vehicles.

Increasing cybersecurity threat may restrain industry progression

Rising threats of cybersecurity in connected vehicles is foreseen to hamper automotive simulation market growth. Software vulnerabilities can be accessed by hackers using cellular networks and Wi-Fi, which has curtailed consumer demand for autonomous simulation software. Moreover, ongoing technological advancements in the system are slated to support the development, testing, and validation of safe automated driving technologies, thereby impelling business expansion.
