Embedded Software Market size to reach $40 Bn by 2032

  • Published Date: January 23, 2023

Embedded Software Market size is anticipated to cross USD 40 billion by 2032, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.

The report indicates that the integration of IoT and real-time operating systems in automobiles will boost the acceptance of embedded software architecture. Since vehicle features are becoming increasingly software-controlled and with consumers shifting preference towards electric vehicles, a dependable RTOS has become an essential tool. Based on statistics from the Society of the Irish Motor Industry, in November 2022, 343 EVs were registered, an increase from 190 registrations in November 2021. Furthermore, rapid automotive modernization and improvements in ADAS technology will fuel automotive embedded software adoption to control advanced functions.

Low latency & multiple task management attributes to propel embedded GPOS demand

The embedded software market value from the general-purpose operating system (GPOS) segment dominated around USD 9 billion revenue in 2022. Reduced latency, high synchronization, enhanced security, and multiple tasks management are some of the capabilities contributing to the increased usage of GPOS platforms such as Mac OS, Linux, and Windows. The report also reveals that major GPOS can establish a user-friendly interface and create a great level of flexibility, thereby bolstering its adoption in consumer products and proliferating embedded software development.

Escalating healthcare spending & automation to promote use of real-time embedded systems

The market share from the real-time system function segment will exhibit over 10% CAGR through 2032, due to the broad application scope in satellite communications and robotic and automation systems. Real-time embedded software is also leveraged in medical systems for use in patient monitoring, heart treatments, and radiation therapy. As per the report, the rise in spending on cancer care and the growing burden of chronic diseases are thus likely to boost the deployment of real-time embedded systems across the healthcare sector.
