Market Synopsis

Automotive Software Market

The Passenger Vehicle Segment Stood as the Largest Segment in 2017

In terms of vehicle type, the passenger car segment stood as the largest segment in 2017. The fact that passenger vehicles use a higher number of electronic components as compared commercial vehicles, would help the passenger vehicles segment to continue its dominance throughout the forecast period. For instance, recently, Mercedes-Benz integrated Houndify by SoundHound, Inc. into its latest infotainment system Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) in the U.S. This would enable customized voice control with natural language understanding. Similarly, Volvo entered into a partnership with Google to power its Sensus infotainment systems. This will allow Volvo car owners to use Google Maps, Google Voice Assistant, Google Play Store, etc. Moreover, all the cars manufactured from 2020 onwards will feature all the Google services straight out of the factory. These factors are expected to positively influence the integration of software in passenger vehicles.

Automotive Software Market

Asia Pacific to Remain the Most Lucrative Market for Investment for Automotive Software Manufacturers

In 2017, Asia Pacific held the largest market share of the overall automotive software in 2017. The fact that some of the leading automobile manufacturers such as Toyota, Hyundai, Nissan, Honda and Suzuki headquartered in the region further supports the automotive software market growth in the region.
