The market for automotive simulation is expected to grow at a CAGR of around 11.9% from 2020 to 2027 and expected to reach the market value of around US$ 3,439.3 Mn by 2027.
The automotive simulation is advanced software that stimulates passenger vehicles and components for testing & development of driver assistance systems, vehicle dynamic controls, onboard power electronics, and engine controls. The automotive simulation reproduces the characteristics of real vehicles in a virtual environment by replicating the external factors and conditions that a vehicle interacts with. It also enables a person to learn driving without the risk of an accident with the original vehicle. Additionally, it helps OEMs to detect risks or defaults in the components before fixing them into the vehicle that enhances the efficiency of the product.
The rapid technological changes associated with the increasing focus on R&D Activities are driving the market growth. The innovative and constant technological advancements in the market due to the emergence of virtual platforms are supporting the market value. The increasing usage of cloud computing along with the increasing use of automotive simulation software at the test centers of governmental regulatory bodies is also driving the market growth. The benefit associated with the use of simulation software is, it significantly reduces the efforts of OEMs during lab testing and on-road testing for new products and technologies is additionally contributing to market growth. Furthermore, increasing developments in the field of autonomous and semi-autonomous vehicles are further projected to create potential opportunities over the forecast timeframe from 2020 to 2027.
On the other side, constraints and complications related to real-time control in simulation activities as well as lack of set standards and regulations are the factors projected to restrain the market growth.
