Software-defined Vehicle Market

The software-defined vehicle market is projected to grow from USD 270.9 billion in 2023 to USD 419.7 billion by 2028, registering a CAGR of 9.1% during the forecast period. The market growth is attributed to the continued development of connected vehicles and the introduction of 5G cellular connectivity projects. Furthermore, the emergence of ride-hailing and mobility-as-a-service platforms is expected to create lucrative opportunities for the market.

The ICE vehicle type segment is expected to account for the largest share of the software-defined vehicle market in 2023.

The ICE segment is a significant market for software-defined vehicles. The driving factors for the adoption of ICE SDVs include the need for improved fuel efficiency and emissions, in addition to the desire for more connected and autonomous vehicles and the increasing availability of software and computing power. Software-based ICE vehicles have various benefits, including improved fuel efficiency and emissions, new features and functionality, over-the-air updates, and autonomous driving. The software in ICE-based vehicles can control the speed, steering, braking, and the environment and decide how to get around safely. Further, these vehicles often include ADAS features, such as adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, automatic emergency braking, and parking assist. These features rely on sensors, cameras, and software algorithms to enhance safety and convenience. For example, the Volvo XC90 is a luxury SUV with a turbocharged gasoline engine.
