The recession saw a decline in new vehicle manufacturing and a subsequent drop in demand for new automotive software. Within the OEM market, the demand for software for transmission control and engine management systems was heavily impacted. Aftermarket technologies also suffered, as consumers became more cautious and held back on purchases of safety travel and infotainment technologies, and associated software and upgrades.

European geographies represent the largest automotive software market, while the Asia-Pacific region is growing rapidly at 9.57% p/a, as demand for high-spec cars increases in India and China.

The most rapid growth (8% p/a) is anticipated within the infotainment/telematics applications market, driven by interest in fuel efficiency technologies and in-vehicle entertainment. Future vehicles are likely to come more technologically equipped, with a focus on safety and minimizing potential distraction for the driver, e.g. Bluetooth and speech/vocal command systems.
