Embedded Software Market Overview

The Embedded software Market is expected to gain 9 % growth by 2022. Embedded software and tools are computer software written to control machines or devices not typically thought of as computers. It specialises in one hardware that runs in its own time and memory. The software is written on computer chips and integrated into hardware systems. When embedded and implemented into hardware, the users can not alter the software. Embedded software is usually developed for special hardware real-time OS such as Fusion RTOS, Lynx OS, Windows CE, and Others. The market drivers are the high adoption of embedded software and tools in the semiconductor and automotive industries. Moreover, the increasing adoption of smart homes, smart grid technology, and the continuously growing popularity of M2M & IoT technologies globally will boost the market in the forecast period. In addition, increasing use of embedded software and tools in electronic design automation (EDA), wearable technology, and increasing adoption of multi-core technology in embedded software are expected to provide vast growth opportunities for the market.
