Commenting on the report, an analyst from the team said: “One of the major trends observed in the market is the declining price of microcontrollers. The cost of high-end microcontrollers such as 8-bit, 16-bit, and 32-bit microcontrollers is expected to decline during the forecast period, leading to their increased adoption. These microcontrollers are mainly used in power management applications as they reduce the power usage of equipment used in many industries. These factors are expected to increase the demand for microcontrollers during the forecast period. Thus, the declining price of high-end microcontrollers is expected to augur well for the growth of the market over the next few years.”
According to the report, the growth of the Global Microcontroller market is driven by several factors and their increased application in the Automotive segment is one of the major factors. The rise in the production of hybrid and electric vehicles, where power management is a key concern, is resulting in the increased adoption of microcontrollers in the Automotive segment.
Further, the report states that the long development cycle of microcontrollers is one of the key challenges in the market. Their development process includes a series of steps that have to be strictly followed to attain the required quality. These steps tend to delay the time-to-market of the final product.
The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
