Real time is the time span taken by a system to complete all its tasks and provide an output for an input. However, real-time systems produce an accurate response in the defined or specified time limit. If this time limit exceeds, malfunctioning of the system or performance degradation takes place. For instance, in an airplane engine controller system, the real-time control system executes its task in a definite time. Failure to this can cause loss of control and possibly, loss of lives.
Reliability and safety of real-time systems is a driving factor for the real-time systems market. Moreover, due to recent advancements in technology, several companies are eager to implement new systems to increase efficiency. Thus, rising adoption by companies and technological innovations are driving the real-time systems market. However, lack of awareness in several developing countries is hampering the market for these systems. In addition, the number of organizations that require real-time systems is very less. The initial investment involved in installing real-time systems and their maintenance is comparatively high. These factors are also restraining the real-time systems market.
The global real-time systems market can be segmented based on type, task, enterprise size, industry, and region. In terms of type, the market can be segmented into hard or critical real-time systems, soft or non-critical real-time systems, open or closed real-time systems, embedded systems, and distributed systems. The embedded systems segment is expected to dominate the market during the forecast period, as an embedded system is a computer system designed for specific control functions within a larger system. Based on task, the market can be segmented into clock-based systems, event-based systems, and interactive systems. An interactive system is a combination of a clock-based system and an event-based system. An interactive system comprises a reservation system for hotels, a reservation system for airline booking, and an automated teller machine. The interactive systems segment is anticipated to expand at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. In terms of enterprise size, the real-time systems market can be classified into large enterprises and small & medium enterprises. The large enterprises segment is expected to hold a major market share during the forecast period. In terms of industry, the real-time systems market has been segmented into health care, industrial, automotive & transportation, IT & telecommunications, aerospace, consumer electronics, defense, and others. The industrial segment is anticipated to hold a leading market share during the forecast period. A few instances of industrial applications of real-time systems are process control systems, industrial automation systems, SCADA applications, test and measurement equipment, and robotic equipment.
In terms of region, the global real-time systems market can be segmented into North America, South America, Asia Pacific, Europe, and Middle East & Africa. The market in North America is anticipated to expand at a substantial growth rate during the forecast period. This is attributable to technological advancements and increasing usage of real-time systems in industries across the region. Asia Pacific is projected to be a lucrative market for real-time systems during the forecast period, due to increase in the usage of real-time systems in the telecommunications sector in the region. Real-time systems used in the telecommunications sector are cellular systems, video conferencing systems, and cable modems.
