The automotive hypervisor market is expected to experience a CAGR of 32.07% throughout the forecast period, reaching a market size of US$5,404.072 million by 2029. This represents a substantial increase from US$771.041 million recorded in 2022.

Automobile hypervisors allow many operating systems to operate simultaneously on a single hardware platform, such as a car's electronic control unit (ECU). The growing intricacy of automotive systems and the incorporation of sophisticated functionalities propel the automotive hypervisors market. Hypervisors help connected cars receive updates over the air, maximize resource consumption, and improve safety. They are essential in maintaining security and adhering to industry requirements by separating critical and non-critical systems.

Automotive hypervisors provide passenger automobiles with several advantages, including enhanced performance, lower power consumption, and higher safety and security. Because of these benefits, they are a practical option for contemporary passenger automobiles. ECUs in passenger automobiles are responsible for various operations, including entertainment systems, brakes, and engine management.

Automotive Hypervisor Market Drivers

  • Rise in electric and hybrid vehicles to propel the automotive hypervisor market.

The increase in electric and hybrid automobiles majorly impacts the automotive hypervisor market. These cars have sophisticated powertrain management systems with energy regeneration, battery control, and electric motors. Automotive hypervisors are essential for effectively integrating and controlling these complex systems. They facilitate the smooth coordination of several components, guaranteeing optimal performance, resource allocation, and safety in electric and hybrid cars by offering a virtualized environment. As per the International Energy Agency, in the transportation sector, there were over 26 million electric vehicles on the road in 2022, a 60% increase from 2021 and a five-fold increase over the number of vehicles in 2018. Electric solutions are also gradually gaining traction in the bus and heavy-duty categories. With 220 new bus and truck models hitting the market in 2022, an increasing number of electric vehicles were available. Over 80% of all sales of heavy-duty vehicles are now based in China, where the majority of the deployment takes place. Additionally, sales of this sector in Europe and North America more than quadrupled in 2022 compared to 2021.  Furthermore, according to PIB, In India, in 2022, there were 27,81,69,631 non-electric vehicles in operation and 13,34,385 electric vehicles. According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), electric car sales are anticipated to reach 9,00,000 in India in 2023, which is 50% higher than in 2022. Additionally, the electric car sales in India in the first quarter of 2023 have already doubled compared to the same period in 2022. Moreover, as per the estimates by the IEA, the number of worldwide electric car stocks reached more than 10 million in 2020, up 43% from 2019 and accounting for 1% of the stock share, following a decade of explosive expansion. In 2020, two-thirds of newly registered electric cars were battery electric vehicles (BEVs), making up two-thirds of the stock. China leads the world in the number of electric vehicles (4.5 million), while Europe saw the biggest yearly gain in 2020, reaching 3.2 million. As such, various companies are focusing on building electric vehicles, which is anticipated to further fuel the automotive hypervisor market. For instance, Honda announced its intention to build an electric vehicle assembly plant in Wuhan, Hubei, alongside its Chinese joint venture partner Dongfeng in January 2022. The production facility is slated to begin operations in 2024, with a capacity of 120,000 electric vehicles annually.

Automotive Hypervisor Market – Geographical Outlook

  • It is projected that the automotive hypervisor market in the North American region will grow steadily. 

Hypervisor drives innovation in the automotive sector by converging functions such as 5G, AI, and IoT within a vehicle. Their usage enables the integration of various standalone and integrated systems in a vehicle, such as telematics, diagnostics, vehicle control, infotainment, and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). The United States is witnessing a significant boost in next-generation technological adoption in automotive. With booming commercial vehicle manufacturing coupled with growing e-vehicle applications, the automotive hypervisors market is anticipated to show positive growth. According to the International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers, in 2022, the United States light commercial vehicle production witnessed a 9% increase, with overall production reaching 7.98 million units compared to 7.30 million units produced in 2021. Additionally, according to the International Energy Agency’s data, in Q1 of 2023, more than 320,000 electric vehicles were sold in the US, which represented a significant 60% increase over 2022’s sales volume for the same period. Favorable initiatives and efforts to promote virtualization technology adoption in automotive, coupled with the investments and implementation of ADAS, are acting as an additional driving factor for USA automotive hypervisor market growth. Major market players such as BlackBerry have a well-established presence in the USA, and the company’s active participation in new launches and strategic collaboration with the major US tech giants such as AWS has caused an upward market trajectory. In February 2021, the company launched “QNX Hypervisor 2.2”, which enables automotive manufacturers to consolidate various embedded functions in a single hardware platform.
