According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Embedded System Market is accounted for $101.08 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach $161.29 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 8.1% during the forecast period. Embedded systems are collections of electronic gear designed specifically for a given application to satisfy the needs of that system. The market for embedded systems has recently been pushed by an increase in demand for smart electricity metres, particularly in developing nations in Asia Pacific and South America. As a result of government measures to improve energy efficiency and electrify rural areas in developing nations like China and India, demand for smart metres is anticipated to increase during the next years. Additionally, certain additional elements, such price declines and technology improvement.

According to the GSM Association (GSMA), the 5G market is expected to contribute USD 2.2 trillium to the global economy by 2034, comprising 5.3% of the global GDP growth.

Market Dynamics:


Surge in the demand for ADAS in EV and hybrid vehicles

The automotive sector is being redesigned, and embedded technologies are an integral part of it. These systems are utilised by the ADAS technology found in hybrid and electric automobiles. The market for embedded systems has expanded as a result of the rise in demand for electric and hybrid vehicles brought on by public awareness of the environment's declining state. The need for electronic components, including embedded hardware and software used in electric vehicles, is expected to increase as the number of electric vehicle sales, which are expected to reach 41 million by 2020, rises.


Vulnerability of embedded systems to cyber threats and security breaches

The security of embedded devices is one of the main problems that has restricted the growth of the embedded system market. Information that could be crucial to the military, banks, data centres, and healthcare facilities is stored in embedded devices like memory. Embedded systems are susceptible to assaults due to a variety of variables, including infrequent security upgrades, prolonged device life spans, remote deployment, and attack replication. Therefore, it is anticipated that the embedded system market will have certain growth restraints due to embedded systems' vulnerability to cyber threats and security breaches.


Advent of 5G and development of 5G based embedded devices

The market for embedded systems is anticipated to experience growth as a result of the introduction of 5G technology. As a result, it is anticipated that the manufacturing of embedded devices based on 5G architecture would rise in the next years. Furthermore, because 5G technologies supports quick picture processing, it is anticipated to assist in addressing the difficulties associated with industrial automation and smart farming. Therefore, it is anticipated that embedded devices supporting 5G infrastructure will propel the growth of the embedded system market.


High energy consumption of compact embedded systems

The ability of embedded systems to integrate a variety of functionalities could result in complex design structures. Additionally, the energy consumption of embedded systems increases as a result. Inefficient energy use frequently shortens the overall lifecycle of embedded devices. The temperature of an embedded device affects its energy consumption, which rises as the device's temperature does. The embedded system's overall performance is impacted by this. As a result, the high energy consumption of tiny embedded systems poses a significant threat to the market's expansion.

Covid-19 Impact

Numerous market changes have occurred all across the world as a result of the COVID-19 epidemic. The majority of changes in market dynamics are detrimental. The growth of the embedded systems market is being restrained for a variety of factors, including limited manufacturing rates, low demand, and supply chain disruptions. The market for embedded systems currently faces a number of challenges. Operations of embedded systems are negatively impacted by this business. The deployment of the system has been accelerated. Low consumer electronics demand is impeding adoption rates. Following COVID-19, the market's prognosis appears to be positive.

The hardware segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

The hardware segment is estimated to have a lucrative growth. The physical parts of an embedded system, such as microprocessors, sensors, and other electronic components, are referred to as hardware. Building embedded systems requires hardware components. They are frequently expensive and essential components of an embedded system, and businesses spend a lot of money creating and producing these parts.

The automotive segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The automotive segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR growth during the forecast period, due to embedded systems are increasingly being used in contemporary automobiles, which are becoming more sophisticated and complex every year. Infotainment systems, engine control systems, safety and driver aid systems, and other vehicle applications all make use of embedded systems. These systems, which ensure the safe and effective operation of modern cars, rely on a combination of hardware and software components.

Region with highest share:

Asia Pacific is projected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period as a result of factors like rising per capita income, ongoing widespread industrialization, and urbanisation. Additionally, it is projected that the availability of inexpensive electronic products in APAC would contribute to a rise in the demand for microprocessors and microcontrollers in the area.

Region with highest CAGR:

North America is projected to have the highest CAGR over the forecast period, owing to a greater emphasis on closing the digital divide within national borders through the adoption of policy reforms relating to embedded systems also anticipated to drive regional product demand during the projection period are advances in car electronics and expanding industrialization.
