The global embedded systems market is expected to reach USD 214.39 billion by 2020. Favorable regulatory scenario for installation of smart devices such as smart meters is expected to drive global embedded system demand over the forecast period. Growing adoption and evolution of the Internet of Things (IoT) driven by technological advancement is also expected to fuel the industry over the next six years.
Increasing demand for end-use industries such as healthcare and consumer electronics is expected to positively impact the embedded systems market. Key requirements for an efficient embedded system include high degree of reliability and responsiveness as well as low cost, since these devices are embedded in safety critical systems. Decreasing prices of microcontrollers, which are a key component of embedded hardware, is expected to give impetus to the market in the coming years.
Further Key findings from the study suggest:
Embedded hardware is expected to remain the dominant product segment and accounted for 93.8% of the global market in 2013. It includes Digital Signal Processors (DSP), microprocessors as well as microcontrollers. Embedded software is expected to grow at the fastest rate of 8.1% from 2014 to 2020.
Automotive is expected to continue leading the global market; the segment accounted for 20.8% of the overall market share in 2013. This can be attributed to the high electronic content in automotives coupled with growing focus on Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEV) for energy efficiency. The market for healthcare applications is expected to be the fastest growing, at a CAGR of 7.1% from 2014 to 2020.
North America accounted for over 34% of the global market in 2013, and is expected to remain the largest regional market over the next six years. The market in Asia Pacific is marked by the presence of semiconductor fabrication plants such as the Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TMSC); the region also comprises a significant number of skilled professionals. As a result, the market in this region is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.7% from 2014 to 2020, faster than the global average.
