Embedded system market size is expected to reach USD 18.61 billion by 2023, growing at 5.6 percent during the next six years as per research report by Global Market Insights, Inc. Innovation in technology along with mounting smart grid initiatives is likely to fuel industry demand. With growth and advancement in the field of electronics, wireless communications, networking, cognitive and affective computing and robotics, the Indian IT industry, with its traditional strength at managing services and developing software is ideally poised to tap into this large opportunity.

Although the Indian opportunity is high, the major challenge is to compete with the Global majors in the higher end of the products where both technology and cost is a challenge and sourcing of components is a problem due to higher lead time and extra cost for imports.
