Mechanical Systems' Broad Scope and Requirements to Drive Market Growth
By type, the market is segmented into mechanical, embedded, and software. Currently, the mechanical segment is dominating and is expected to dominate in 2029. The segment's growth can be attributed to the highly competitive nature of the automotive industry; by utilizing prototyping techniques in mechanical manufacturing-related services, manufacturers can achieve accurate results in shorter production times, thereby reducing excess costs. Given the ongoing trend of end-user convenience, automobile manufacturers are investing in advancing their production habits to match the ongoing trend, which is why the mechanical type is expected to dominate in the future.
Software is the fastest-growing segment with the highest CAGR in the market. Its growth is attributed to the automobile industry's growth in connected car services. The embedded segment has also significantly risen in the market.
Growing Focus of End-users on Safety and Light Vehicle Structure to Drive the Demand for Body Engineering
By application, the market is categorized into body engineering, chassis engineering, powertrain engineering, safety systems, infotainment systems, and others (wheel assembly and autonomous & connected cars).
In 2021, the body engineering segment held the largest revenue share of the market. This is due to the electrification of lightweight EVs that take aerodynamics into account when replacing traditional patterns.
The use of autonomous driving/ADAS will significantly grow throughout the forecast period due to its ability to detect and recognize its surroundings while providing safe mobility. ADAS consists of multiple sensors such as LIDAR, GPS, radar, inertial measurement units, and others that provide advanced sensory information and control system integrators for road navigation.
OEM investments in powertrain technologies and overall weight reduction are expected to boost the growth of the powertrain and chassis engineering segment. The market for infotainment systems is expanding due to a trend toward luxury and comfort with advanced features such as steering wheel audio controls, hands-free voice control, and touch-sensitive preset buttons. The safety systems include an Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), and Lane Departure. Most transport authorities have made it mandatory for OEMs to have these safety features from base versions of their vehicles. This has been a major factor propelling the growth of this segment in the market.
Feasible and Convenient Availability of Service Making the In-house Segment Grow in the Market
Based on location, the market is divided into in-house and outsource.
