Global Automotive Operating Systems Market Size (By OS Type: Android, Linux, QNX, Windows Embedded Automotive 7, and Others; By Vehicle Type: Passenger Vehicles, and Commercial Vehicles; By ECU Function: Powertrain, Body Comfort & Control, Infotainment, Communication, and Safety & ADAS) - Global Industry Analysis, Market Size, Opportunities and Forecast, 2021 - 2028
From 2021 to 2028, the global market for automotive operating systems is forecasted to grow at a CAGR of 15.1% with a market value of US$ 4.2 Bn in 2020.
The operating system is a piece of software that serves as a link between the computer hardware and the end-user. From the in-car entertainment menus integrated into the earliest digital stereos to the satellite navigation systems seen in new cars today, operating systems have been employed in automobiles for many years. The term "automobile operating system" refers to a product used in the automotive sector to provide specialized products and services. It is a set of initiatives or directions that assist clients in efficiently collaborating with the vehicle's basic hardware components and controlling the vehicle's usefulness. It ensures the safety of both travelers and operators. It establishes how computerized systems and motor engines should operate for vehicles to work smoothly. Advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), infotainment, communication, powertrain, body control, telematics, and other features are all part of the system.
The market is predicted to develop because of the rising availability of smart vehicle infotainment systems and the growing use of linked cars. The growing fleet of smart and self-driving vehicles is assisting the OS industry in moving forward. Almost every vehicle now has an operating system built-in. In addition, the emergence of connected device technologies, the adoption of advanced technologies to develop user-friendly applications, and the introduction of IoT systems within vehicles are all fueling the market growth. Furthermore, the rising recognition of autonomous vehicles has accelerated the market's overall growth by introducing automotive operating systems into majority of the vehicles.
Growing initiatives from the government regarding passenger safety and the rising focus of numerous governments on electric vehicles to reduce carbon footprint are some of the aspects that are boosting the market demand. Electric vehicles are becoming increasingly popular in the United Kingdom and the European Union. While licensed EVs currently account for 0.5 percent of the market in the UK, National Grid estimates that EVs could reach between 2.7 and 10.6 million by 2030 and as many as 36 million by 2040. Electric vehicles are some of the most advanced cars with many innovative technologies integrated within. EV manufacturers have been developing new and more ways to integrate advanced technologies in their vehicles to attract customers. For instance, Volvo has announced plans to update its infotainment and data systems with VolvoCars.OS, a new in-house built operating system that will be used on future cars starting in 2022. VolvoCars.OS will power the next generation of pure electric Volvo cars, including the company's first SUV built entirely on electric technology. This will allow for faster and more flexible development.
OS type, vehicle type, ECU function, and region are the segmentations of the global automotive operating systems market. Among OS types, the market categorizes them as android, QNX, Linux, windows embedded automotive 7, and others. The android OS is one of the popular systems among cars. Vehicle manufacturers all over the world are currently weighing the advantages of the android automotive OS. Some companies have already chosen to build a formal collaboration with Google to collaborate on the development of their next-generation IVI, which includes Google Automotive Services (GAS). Others are adopting the open-source project AOSP, which includes the vehicle extensions, to construct their android automotive system, while a third group is still hesitant, primarily due to worries about dependencies and data ownership.
Vehicle type segmentation includes passenger vehicles and commercial vehicles. By vehicle type, passenger vehicles acquired more than half of the market share in 2020 driven by the demand for passenger vehicles in emerging economies and the rising disposable income of the people. Powertrain, infotainment, body comfort & control, safety & ADAS, and communication, are covered under the ECU function segment.
Automotive Operating Systems Market Regional Overview
North America, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, Europe, and the Middle East & Africa are the segmentation of the global automotive operating systems industry. The Europe region is likely to exhibit the fastest growth rate (CAGR) during the predicted years 2021 – 2028. The presence of key automotive industry players and their expanding adoption of modern technologies such as deep learning, AI, and augmented reality (AR) in R&D to design new features for passenger safety, comfort, and convenience are driving the region's rapid growth. The German automotive sector, for example, accounts for more than 60% of Europe's R&D growth. To develop unique features in their vehicles, OEMs and suppliers in the nation are attaining new technology and attracting expert professionals in these fields.
