What are the major RTOS(real time operating systems) other than VxWorks in the market now. Also i would like to know its area of application.

Notable products using VxWorks:

*The Honda Robot ASIMO
*The BMW iDrive system
*The Apache Longbow attack helicopter

Spacecraft using VxWorks

*The Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter
*The Phoenix Mars Lander
*The Deep Impact space probe

Wiki land has it pretty well covered:

Generally the criticallity of the specific RTOS requires you to write a custom real time kernel. They are mostly used by the military, industrial process controls and in the hopefully not so distant future they will be used for vehicle collision avoidance systems.
