Market overview for automotive software

Accelerated. That’s the market sentiment regarding the pace of software development for the automotive industry, mainly due to the rise of autonomous vehicles.

Self-driving cars require complex integrated systems to operate efficiently: On-board computers, cloud connection services, and mobile apps for better UX, all peppered with the latest technologies. This, in turn, boosted the demand for automotive software development services across the board.

The market value for automotive software is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.8 percent, from $19 billion in 2023 to 32.3 billion by 2030. Key factors driving this growth include:

The artificial intelligence boom

AI and machine learning are core features of the advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) used in self-driving vehicles and their navigation software.

A growing focus on safety

An expected reaction to the industry’s increasing adoption of ADAS. Both consumers and regulators have kept a close eye on the reliability of features like adaptive cruise control and collision avoidance, and companies have accordingly invested in safety-related software.

The widespread adoption of 5G

5G greatly sped up data transfers between smartphones and car applications in core markets. Customers value the extra connectivity — now adapted to infotainment systems — and companies can gather valuable fleet-related data in real time to optimize operations.

Electric vehicles (EVs)

EVs are now perceived not as a niche but as the future. The public image of EVs is synonymous with technology, and with large auto enterprises taking their time to roll out their EV roadmaps, app development for EVs is still an unexplored frontier.
