An embedded system is programmed to perform a specific function or control a smaller device within a larger electrical or mechanical system. By doing so, embedded systems are able to fill in many of the gaps that a general-purpose computer’s capabilities might leave. This also explains the unmatched degree of versatility that embedded systems afford in a myriad of uses across industry verticals. The automobile industry, in particular, is expected to generate high demand for embedded systems in the near future. As real time data transfer and information relaying becomes pivotal to most industries, the use of embedded systems will rise.
However, the electronics industry is still grappling with challenges pertaining to the design and seamless integration of embedded systems in the latest electronic and electrical devices. This could result in the global embedded systems market’s growth being restrained to some extent. This situation is exacerbated by the high degree of competition that currently prevails among market participants, making innovation a vital tool for survival.
For the purpose of this study, the global embedded systems market is segmented on the basis of functionality, type, microcontroller, application, and geography. Segmented thus, the embedded systems market by functionality is composed of stand-alone embedded systems, networked embedded systems, real-time embedded systems, and mobile embedded systems. The highest revenue contribution in 2014 came from real-time embedded systems, thanks largely to their deployment in a myriad of applications ranging from industrial automation to automotive to consumer electronics.
