Automotive Software Market by Application (Infotainment, Powertrain, ADAS & Safety), Vehicle Type (Passenger Vehicle, Commercial Vehicle), EV Type (BEV, HEV, PHEV), and Region (Asia Pacific, Europe, North America, and RoW) - Global Forecast to 2025

“Innovations and developments in the field of automotive AI, vehicle IoT, and implementation of dedicated software standards for the automotive industry to fuel the demand for the automotive software market.”
The global automotive software market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 18.12% during the forecast period, from USD 18.7 billion in 2018 to USD 60.0 billion by 2025. The growing number of connected cars and electronic content per vehicle and reinforcement of mandates by regulatory bodies for vehicle safety and comfort are driving the automotive software market. The technological advancements such as autonomous vehicles, truck-platooning, and vehicle-to-everything (V2X) are expected to create opportunities for the automotive software market in the coming years. However, complexities in real-time control can restrain the growth of the automotive software market. Lack of benchmarks and standards in the software and analysis market and integration complexities can pose challenges for the automotive software market.

“Communication systems segment to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period.”
The communication systems segment of the automotive software market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Vehicle electronics functions are increasing every day. For better operations, they are communicated with high-performance protocols such as LIN, CAN, FlexRay, MOST and Ethernet. Increasing number of ECUs and electronically operated systems are likely to drive the market for communication systems.

“The light commercial vehicle segment is estimated to be the fastest growing market, in terms of value, in the automotive software market.”
Light commercial vehicles (LCVs) include several types of SUVs and pickup trucks. Recently, these vehicles are being installed with modern technologies such as fleet management system, GPS, and infotainment system which are handled by modern software. These vehicles find major applications in North America. So, increasing sales of LCVs and use of modern electronics are driving the automotive software market for communication systems.

“Rapid technological advancements in the field of connected and autonomous vehicles to impose Europe as the fastest growing market during the forecast period.”
Europe is estimated to grow at the highest CAGR in the automotive software market during the forecast period. The increasing number of connected vehicles and a growing awareness of green vehicles among people are expected to fuel the growth of the automotive software market in Europe. Moreover, countries in Europe have taken an aggressive stance on testing self-driving vehicles as well as making their EVs more intelligent. Owing to this, the automotive software market is expected to gain more popularity in the region.
