Global Hardware-in-the-Loop Market Highlights over 2022 – 2031

The global hardware-in-the-loop market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of ~10% over the forecast period, i.e., 2022 – 2031. Hardware-in-the-loop or (HIL) is a simulation system used to test control systems, by mimicking the actual hardware interconnection. The growth of the market can be attributed to the increasing application of HIL in automotive and electronic sectors. HIL is used to test the vehicles, equipment, and electronic devices, to simulate every possible scenario, and check the controller and device performance. This can save a significant amount spent on real-time testing of these devices, which is estimated to boost the market growth. Moreover, introduction of advanced technologies, such as, ADAS systems and AI, for cars, unmanned aerial vehicles, and defense machineries, is expected to encourage the growth of the market. In addition to this, the increasing investment in research and development activities, is anticipated to boost the market growth. According to the data by the World Bank, 2.203% of the global gross domestic product (GDP) was spent on research and development activities, in 2018.
