About Embedded Processor

An embedded processor is a single chip that encompasses the functions of several discrete chips. Embedded processors are integrated in the embedded systems which are used to carry out complex operations. Embedded processors are different from other processors because of their architecture which entails dedicated computing cores (a processor), memory, and programmable input/output peripherals. Embedded processors are developed to be integrated in devices which required to handle multiple processes in real-time. Thus, applications of embedded processors are expanding across sectors with an increasing efficiency as a result of technological developments in the domain of computer science.

The analysts forecast the Global Embedded Processor market will grow at a CAGR of 5.7 percent over the period 2013-2018.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the team said: “Microcontrollers have witnessed unprecedented growth across various sectors. They are becoming an integral part of many electronic devices because of their ability to process multiple and complex tasks in real time. Microcontrollers are used in power management applications because they reduce power usage. Also, the cost of high-end microcontrollers such as 8-bit, 16-bit, and 32-bit microcontrollers is expected to decline during the forecast period. The declining cost will increase the adoption of 8-bit, 16-bit, and 32-bit microcontrollers. Thus, the penetration of microcontrollers in the Global Embedded Processor market is expected to increase during the forecast period. ”

According to the report, the increase in the integration of embedded processors into mobile devices such as smartphones, tablets, GPSs, and PDAs is one of the major drivers. Thus, the growing demand for mobile devices among end-users will increase the growth prospects of the market during the forecast period. Vehicle electrification and automation is another major driver in the market.

Further, the report states that the cyclical nature of the Semiconductor industry is one of the key challenges faced by the market. The cyclical nature of the Semiconductor industry tends to increase the inventory levels in the supply chain as a result of the fluctuation in demand. This fluctuation significantly affects the profit margins of vendors. Thus, it is a major challenge for the market and the vendors to overcome.

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.
