Among hardware, the FPGA segment of the market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2020 to 2025
The field-programmable gate arrays (FPGA) segment of the embedded system market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2020 to 2025. The growth of this segment can be attributed to the simple design cycles of FGPA and their ability to reconfigure systems based on the requirements of applications. Moreover, FPGA support parallel computing, which makes them suitable for the rapid prototyping of various digital devices. Various advancements in the telecommunication industry, such as the advent of 5G technology, are expected to drive the growth of the market for FPGA-based embedded hardware globally.
The middleware segment of the embedded system market is projected to grow at a high CAGR during the forecast period
Among software, the middleware segment of the market is projected to grow at a high CAGR from 2020 to 2025. Middleware is an alternative to the embedded operating systems (OS) and can either be incorporated in the OS or integrated with device drivers and OS. Middleware helps in reducing the complexity of applications by centralizing software architecture, usually present in application layers. Moreover, it offers connectivity, intercommunication feature, portability, security, and flexibility, which embedded OS fail to offer in distributed and heterogeneous architectures.
Based on functionality, the real-time embedded systems segment of the market is projected to grow at a high CAGR from 2020 to 2025

The medium-scale embedded systems segment accounted for the largest share of the embedded system market in 2019
In 2019, the medium-scale embedded systems segment accounted for the largest share of the embedded system market. Medium-scale embedded systems are used for packet processing in network switches and routers and data processing in ultrasonic sensors. These systems form a major part of network and communication applications owing to their excellent power handling capacities. The increasing requirement of fast processing of embedded systems and efficient power consumption are key factors leading to the growing demand for 16-bit and 32-bit microcontrollers. Based on the number of threads and memory requirements, embedded devices commonly use either 16-bit microcontroller or 32-bit microcontroller architectures or a combination of both.
Among industries, the communication segment accounted for the largest share of the embedded system market in 2019
The communication segment accounted for the largest share of the embedded system market in 2019. Embedded systems are used in routers, Ethernet devices, wireless infrastructures, and protocol converters for high-speed data transfer to support the expanding communication infrastructures. Embedded hardware such as FPGA and ASIC are being used in various network and telecom applications. Telecom providers often integrate hard IP for interfaces such as peripheral component interconnect (PCI) Express, 100G Ethernet, and DDR3/4 for high-speed data transfer using embedded hardware such as FPGA.
