Global Automotive Driving Simulator Market, By Vehicle Type (Car, Truck, and Others), By Simulator T

Published Date: April 2019 | Report Code : AT1931743


The Global Automotive Driving Simulator Market is projected to reach USD 4.04 billion by 2028, at a CAGR of 7.9% during the forecast period. Automotive driving simulators create close to real life driving conditions for purposes such as training, testing, and entertainment. In training and testing, they can be used to train and test both novice and professional drivers, testing in critical driving conditions, testing effects of the impairment on drivers, etc.

Over the past few years, the automotive driving simulator market has been witnessing a steady growth due to increasing safety regulations required to be maintained by vehicle manufacturers and on-road drivers. They are used by manufacturers to test the functioning of vehicles in different conditions created through simulators to ensure safety in all these conditions. Moreover, many driving schools are installing simulators to teach driving, as it is a better and safer tool.


Based on the simulator type, the automotive driving simulator market has been segmented into driving training and advanced driving. The drive training segment includes compact and full-scale simulators, of which, compact simulators are expected to witness high demand due to their small size, and low cost of maintenance and installation. Thus, they are being increasingly installed in driving schools. North America is expected to be the largest market for compact simulators due to its stringent traffic rules and regulations.

Moreover, the global gaming industry is growing at a rate of 17% mainly due to the popularity of video and racing games. Driving simulators are used in driving and racing games such as Need for Speed, GTA, etc. This factor is also fueling the automotive driving simulator market.

Western Europe is expected to lead the automotive driving simulator market due to safety regulations and rapid technological development in the European automotive industry, which is developing high-performance fuel-efficient vehicles. Simulators are being used by all automotive companies to gain a competitive advantage over competitors and ensure production of efficient vehicles.

Key Factors Impacting Market Growth:

  • Stringent government rules and regulations in developed countries
  • Adoption of compact simulators by driving schools
  • Technological advancements in the European automotive industry
  • Increasing the use of simulators for the vehicle in research purpose

Key Developments:

  • On December 18, 2018, Mechanical Simulation released a new version of their CarSim, TruckSim, BikeSim, and Suspension sim named 2019.0. This release has major improvements in the overall software behavior, core vehicle dynamics, path and scene building tools, etc.
  • In June 2017, Toyota Kirloskar announced its plans to open 50 driving schools in India, which will use driving simulators for better learning.
  • On February 16, 2018, Moog Inc. acquired VUES Brno s.r.o. in Mostecka, the Czech Republic at a price of USD 67.5 million to tap the market in that region.
