These systems form a major part of network and communication applications owing to their excellent power handling capacities. The increasing requirement of fast processing of embedded systems and efficient power consumption are key factors leading to the growing demand for 16-bit and 32-bit microcontrollers. Based on the number of threads and memory requirements, embedded devices commonly use either 16-bit microcontroller or 32-bit microcontroller architectures or a combination of both.

Based on functionality, the real-time embedded systems segment of the market is projected to grow at a high CAGR from 2020 to 2025.

The real-time embedded systems segment of the embedded system market is projected to grow at a high CAGR from 2020 to 2025. Real-time embedded systems are dedicated to perform given functions within a specified time frame. Since there is an increasing focus on efficiency and power management in various applications, these embedded systems are increasingly being used in network systems, medical systems, process control systems, robot manufacturing systems, traffic control systems, multimedia systems, etc. Moreover, the rising demand for real-time data and its analysis, along with the requirement of advanced communication infrastructure for technologies such as 5G and artificial intelligence (AI), is expected to lead to demand for real-time embedded systems globally.

The automotive segment of the embedded system market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

Among applications, the automotive segment of the embedded system market is projected to witness the highest CAGR from 2020 to 2025. Embedded devices are used in automobiles in heads-up displays, airbags, electronic brake systems, infotainment systems, power steering systems, ADAS, etc. The growth of this segment can be attributed to the large-scale production of cars and the rise in demand for electric vehicles and hybrid vehicles. Additionally, advancements in autonomous vehicles and connected mobility are also contributing to the growth of the automotive segment of the embedded system market.

APAC is projected to hold the largest share of the embedded system market in 2025.

APAC is expected to hold the largest share of the embedded system market in 2025. The growing per capita income and the ongoing large-scale industrialization and urbanization are factors driving the growth of the embedded system market in this region. In addition, the availability of low-cost electronic products in APAC is expected to contribute to an increased demand for microprocessors and microcontrollers in the region. The rising use of autonomous robots and embedded vision systems is also projected to lead to an increased demand for embedded system hardware such as microprocessors and controllers for use in industrial applications in APAC.
