All these factors are expected to propel the growth of the market over the forecast period.

Product Type Insights

Based on product type, the market for automotive hypervisor is segmented into type 1 hypervisor and type 2 hypervisor. Type 1 automotive hypervisor runs directly on host machines and is also known as a bare metal hypervisor. This hypervisor prevents interference from the virtual machines and hence, major automakers are preferring this type of automotive hypervisors. Type 2 hypervisor is a software application installed on an existing operating system. The type 2 hypervisor segment is expected to register the highest CAGR over the forecast period.

Type 2 hypervisor allows various virtual machines to run at the same time using different operating systems and are called guest operating systems. In this type of hypervisor, the guest operating system is free from the host operating system. The growth of type 2 hypervisor segment can be attributed to the improved features provided by the type 2 hypervisor. Additionally, the demand for advanced and efficient vehicles with driver assistance systems, which feature advanced user interfaces that help minimize accident rates, is further driving the growth of automotive hypervisor product type segment over the forecast period.

Vehicle Type Insights

Based on vehicle type, the market for automotive hypervisor is segmented into passenger cars, Light Commercial Vehicles (LCV), and Heavy Commercial Vehicles (HCV). In 2018, the passenger cars vehicle segment dominated the market. The LCV and HCV segments are anticipated to register significant CAGRs over the forecast period. These two segments accounted for lower shares in the automotive hypervisor market in 2018 owing to the relatively reduced production of LCVs and HCVs.

The use of an automotive hypervisor in vehicle virtualization enables provision of standalone systems for each software-defined function, thus increasing productivity. In terms of revenue, the passenger cars segment is expected to dominate the market by 2025. The growth of the segment can be attributed to the rising adoption of virtualization technology in passenger cars, which are higher in number as compared to that of high and low commercial vehicles. Furthermore, the increase in the number of external networks such as Wi-Fi-enabled smart road infrastructure systems and in-vehicle systems is driving the passenger cars segment growth.

Mode of Operation Insights

Based on mode of operation, the market for automotive hypervisor is segmented into autonomous vehicle and semi-autonomous vehicle. In 2018, the semi-autonomous vehicle segment accounted for more than half of the market share in terms of revenue. The autonomous vehicle segment is expected to register a higher CAGR over the forecast period. In developing countries, the sales of autonomous vehicles have increased owing to growing preference of consumers for these vehicles.

Technological advancements in the automotive sector, including the adoption of hypervisor or virtual machine monitoring systems in autonomous vehicles, assist in enhancing the safety of roads and reducing the number of accidents. Furthermore, the governments of developing countries are focusing on improving the living standards in urban areas. For instance, France has made the development of autonomous vehicle a national priority. In 2019, the U.K. government announced the development of a process and necessary infrastructure for autonomous vehicles to increase their adoption and reduce accidents during journey. These factors are expected to drive the growth of the autonomous vehicle segment over the forecast period.

End User Insights

Based on end user, the market for automotive hypervisor is segmented into economy, mid-priced, and luxury vehicle. The luxury vehicle segment is anticipated to account for a major share in the market by 2025 owing to high investments made by auto manufacturers to enhance the productivity of vehicle interior systems. The presence of brands such as Mercedes Benz, BMW, and Audi in Germany and the U.S. are driving the vehicle luxury segment growth in these countries. Furthermore, increasing sales of luxury vehicles in these countries due to growing consumer spending and the growing demand for automated systems incorporated in these vehicles are further driving the segment growth.

Global automotive hypervisor market

In 2018, the luxury vehicle segment dominated the market for automotive hypervisor. Luxury vehicles are equipped with better comfort, safety, and convenience. Hence, running a large number of systems on the existing hardware could lead to connectivity issues. An automotive hypervisor helps curb system design challenges and enables reduction in complexities & in development times. This is driving the use of automotive hypervisors in luxury vehicles. The mid-priced and economy segments are also expected to witness growth owing to the presence of major market players such as Toyota, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, and Maruti Suzuki India Limited. These players are focusing on improving safety features in mid-priced and economy vehicles.
