目錄

IoT and embedded operating systems serve as a foundational piece of the software stacks that ship in billions of new devices every year. Despite the importance of the operating system to the integrity of the overall system, the embedded OS is losing its standalone commercial value due to pressure from free, open source projects. OS vendors need to find new ways to differentiate in order to combat declining pricing power and lower demand for commercially-licensed products. This report examines the market for IoT and embedded operating systems, quantifying and qualifying market dynamics by vendor, industry, region, and OS type. It also includes an in-depth discussion of recent mergers and acquisitions, end-user trends, and vendor strategy.

What questions are addressed?

  • What share of the market do leaders such as Enea, Green Hills, Lynx Software, Mentor Graphics, Microsoft, QNX, and Wind River control?
  • What has fueled recent mergers, integrations, and acquisitions? What impact will these restructurings have on the market?
  • How can vendors differentiate themselves in a competitive and homogenous market?
  • What is causing the growth in automotive revenues? How are vendors successfully gaining share in this market?
  • Where are engineers currently sourcing their operating systems? Where do they expect to source OSs in the future?
  • What are the most important criteria for engineers when making OS selection decisions?

Who should read this report?

Executive summary

Revenue growth in the market for commercial embedded operating systems continues to slow due to pressure from mature, free, open source software. Pockets of growth exist in hard, real-time, and safety-critical systems within the automotive and aerospace and defense (A&D) markets in particular, where partitioning through virtualization technology is driving the sale of profitable software platforms.

The quickening decline of fully-featured operating system (FFOS) market leader Microsoft's embedded revenue share will also provide opportunities for some commercial vendors to court long-time customers who might be looking to move away from the Windows embedded platform. Similarly, competitors are watching RTOS and embedded Linux market leader Wind River closely, waiting for a chance to capitalize on the uncertainty surrounding its future product line as a fully-integrated unit within Intel.

Some vendors have responded to intensifying market pressure by expanding and diversifying their portfolios; others have focused on improving traditional products and winning new clients through aggressive sales and pricing tactics. Many have engaged in a combination of both strategies. Ultimately, a market-wide shift towards the "IoT cloud services platform" business model seems to be inevitable for independent OS vendors as their products continue to lose their standalone pricing power. Intel's impending full integration of Wind River and Silicon Lab's acquisition of Micrium are the most recent examples of incremental additions to IoT platforms from the hardware side. Going forward, we expect to see service (manageability, provisioning, analytics, security, automation) providers acquiring OS vendors in order to move their software platforms closer to the hardware they aim to service. OS vendors will need to choose their partnerships quickly but carefully as sides are drawn up for the coming IoT platforms war.

Key findings

  • Growth will be fueled largely by advances in the automotive market. The continued decline of expensive, legacy Microsoft licenses will have a substantial negative impact on market revenues.
  • Acquisitions will accelerate over the forecasted period as traditional silicon vendors (Qualcomm/NXP/ Freescale, Renesas, Microchip/Atmel) and a new class of IoT service providers (Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform) look to bolster their IoT platform portfolios.
  • Only one in five embedded engineers uses a commercial, non-open source OS (INTEGRITY, VxWorks, Windows Compact/IoT, etc.) as the primary OS on their current project.
  • Vendor reputation ranks as the least important factor for engineers when selecting an OS for a new project. Reliability and cost are the most important.
