Embedded Software Market – Trends Forecast Till 2028

Embedded Software Market size surpassed USD 13.5 billion in 2020 and is estimated to grow at 7.9% CAGR from 2021 to 2028.

Embedded software is written on computer chips and included in hardware systems. Once embedded and implemented into hardware, the software cannot be changed by users. This software is widely developed for special hardware that uses real-time OS like Windows CE, Lynx OS, Fusion RTOS, and Others.

An increase in the number of research and development activities related to embedded systems, rise in demand for advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) and electromobility solutions for electric vehicles and hybrid vehicles, increase in demand for portable devices such as wearables, and rise in the use of multicore processors in military applications are some of the factors that have supported long-term expansion for Embedded Software Market.

The COVID-19 pandemic impacted the embedded software market growth in the first half of the 2020. In early 2020, various regulatory bodies and governments imposed stringent lockdowns across the globe, which resulted into shutdown of several industries including consumer electronics, industrial, automotive, among others.
