Hypervisor is computer software, hardware, or firmware that creates and runs virtual machines. Host machine is a system on which a hypervisor runs one or more virtual machines, and each virtual machine is called a guest machine. Performance of the guest operating systems depends on the hypervisor, which offers the guest operating systems with a virtual operating platform and manages execution. The hypervisor makes it simpler to attain and maintain safety certifications by separating safety-critical components from non-safety critical components in separate guest operating systems in vehicles.

Consistent rise in vehicle production and a surge in demand for light-weight vehicles are expected to boost the automotive hypervisor market during the forecast period. Increase in demand for technologically advanced features customized into a single unit is a key factor that is expected to propel the automotive hypervisor market during the forecast period. Technological development in the automotive industry is driving the adoption of the automotive hypervisor.

The global automotive hypervisor market can be segmented based on type, vehicle type, vehicle class, mode of operation of vehicle, and region.

Based on type, the automotive hypervisor market can be divided into type 1 and type 2. The type 2 segment is had major share of the market share for 2018. Type 2 hypervisor comprises a double layer of multiple operating systems, making it more suitable and a highly preferred virtual technology. Type 2 hypervisor supports numerous virtual machines simultaneously in diverse operating situations.

In terms of vehicle type, the global automotive hypervisor market can be classified into passenger vehicle and commercial vehicle. Passenger vehicles are most likely to adopt advanced technology at a faster pace, as compared to that by commercial vehicles. Therefore, the passenger vehicle segment had leading share of the market share for 2018 for automotive hypervisor market. The commercial vehicle segment has been further sub-divided into light commercial vehicle and heavy commercial vehicle. Light commercial vehicles in countries such as the U. S. are included in the premium vehicle segment, which leads to higher penetration of hypervisors in light commercial vehicles.

Based on the mode of operation of vehicle, the automotive hypervisor market can be split into semi-autonomous vehicles and autonomous vehicles. A semi-autonomous vehicle, on the other hand, requires driver intervention. An autonomous vehicle is a self-driving vehicle and uses various in-built sensors and technologies, such as active steering, adaptive cruise control, GPS navigation technology, anti-lock braking system. An autonomous vehicle requires more powerful and advanced technology and systems as compared to that by a semi-autonomous vehicle. Therefore, integration of automotive hypervisor is substantial high in autonomous vehicle as compared to that in other mode of operation of vehicles.

In terms of region, the global automotive hypervisor market can be bifurcated into Asia Pacific, Europe, North America, Middle East & Africa, and Latin America. Presence of major players in Germany and Baltic countries is major factor responsible for Europe to hold a major share of the global market. Moreover, Europe is dominated by the presence of premium vehicles, which are major consumers of automotive hypervisor. Consequently, Europe accounts for a prominent share of the global automotive hypervisor market.

Key players operating in the automotive hypervisor market are Blackberry, Mentor Graphics, Visteon, Sasken, Green Hills Software, Continental, NXP Semiconductor, Windriver System, and Renesas.
