South & Central America Driving Training Simulator Market Forecast to 2028 – COVID-19 Impact and Regional Analysis – by Simulator Type (Compact Simulator and Full-Scale Simulator), Vehicle Type (Car Simulator, Truck and Bus Driving Simulator, and Others), End User (Driving Training Center, Automotive OEM, and Others)
The driving training simulator market in South & Central America is expected to grow from US$ 117.58 million in 2022 to US$ 135.07 million by 2028. It is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 2.3% from 2022 to 2028.
Scaling Integration of Virtual Reality in Driving Training Simulator
A driving simulator is a technology that provides a realistic driving experience in a virtual environment.Virtual Reality Driver Training has proven to teach drivers specific skills using a fully immersive climate that only VR can offer.
For instance, in 2022, Alstom created virtual reality (VR) technology primarily to enable drivers and crew to receive training on operating a new rolling stock product, whether on an existing, modified, or new transportation system.Training many people quickly, especially when the product may not yet be accessible, is difficult for both customers and operators.
This is made possible safely using a driving simulator. one can use a simulator to show any product or train system’s safety. Furthermore, in 2021, the debut of Apex Officer Drive, a virtual reality driving simulator for police and law enforcement organizations, was announced by Apex Officer, the top supplier of training simulators for law enforcement, the military, and first responders. The obvious choice for educating first responders on how to operate an emergency vehicle safely is Apex Officer Drive. The philosophy and principles of defensive driving in emergency and non-emergency circumstances are emphasized in Apex Officer’s EVOC and police driving simulators to improve vehicle safety operations. Thus, the integration of VR in driving training simulators is projected to emerge as the most notable future trend in the driving training simulator market over the forecast period.
Growing demand for luxury cars and rising development of smart mobility solutions are boosting the driving training simulator market growth in South America.Furthermore, governments of emerging countries in South America, such as Brazil, Colombia, and Argentina, are taking initiatives to support the growth of driving simulators in autonomous vehicles.
Autonomous vehicles are first tested on simulator with virtual environment engagement to understand driving challenges.In Brazil, the projects relating to autonomous vehicles significantly contribute to the future of urban mobility.
To add further, a Palio Weekend Adventure vehicle owned by the University of Sao Paulo (USP) was the first autonomous car authorized to travel in the city.Thus, the growing demand for autonomous vehicles is expected to bolster the need for driving training simulators for practice.
Further, the increasing investment in research & development of automated driving systems is projected to play a key role in the driving training simulator market expansion.
