Presently, every large mass of mechanical or electrical system has an inbuilt embedded system for a dedicated function usually with real-time computing constraints. These embedded systems include hardware and software as a part of complete device. Embedded software is a special programmed chip inbuilt in the embedded system to control the functions of the system. Globally the market for embedded software is driven by the increasing number of sales of consumer electronics along with the growing investments in the field of automation technology.
There is a huge demand in the market for multimedia products and portable computing devices like tablets, laptops at a global level. Also, there is a steady rise in machine to machine (M2M) communication which is integrated with embedded systems. This leads to a parallel growth of embedded software. The advent of Internet of Things (IoT) and all connected devices is also a major driver for this market. In automotive sector, embedded software has a lucrative opportunity owing to increase in consumer preference for enhanced driving experience and fuel efficiency. Restraints of this market are the security concerns and limited lifespan of the process-related applications of embedded software. Additionally, limitations in designing of embedded systems are also hampering the growth of this industry.
The -201cGlobal Embedded Software Market Analysis and Forecasts to 2025-201d can be segmented into programming languages, application, and region. Based on programming languages, the embedded software market is divided into C, C++, Assembly Language, Java, and .Net. Amongst all these programming languages, java language is estimated to grow at faster growth rate during the forecast period. As compared to other programming languages, java is designed to be less complicated to use and hence, it is easy to learn, write, compile and debug. Java is object oriented which allows the user to created modular embedded programs using reusable codes. Besides this, a significant advantage of java is its ability to move easily from one computing device to another. These benefits provide an edge to java in this segment during the forecast period.
