About the Computer On Module (COM) Market

A COM, or system on module (SOM), is a single board computer, which is a subtype of an embedded computer system. COMs are used in various embedded applications such as industrial automation, medical equipment, gaming devices (slot machines), servers, workstations, and rackmounts. They are built on a single circuit board and consist of a single processor, random access memory (RAM), and input and output controllers. However, COMs lack the standard connectors required for connecting input/output peripherals to the board. Hence, they need to be mounted on a carrier board to connect to standard peripheral connectors. Certain COMs have peripheral connectors and do not require a carrier board. In certain configurations, the baseboard is connected to a backplane, which allows connectivity to other peripheral devices. Also, some rackmount computer designs that use COMs use backplane connectivity. Backplane connectivity provides many functionalities such as better power connectivity, LAN connectivity from backplane, and improved modular design that allows plug-and-play features to increase computing capacity.

The analysts forecast the global computer on module (COM) market to grow at a CAGR of 17.97% during the period 2016-2020.

New Report Released: - Global Computer On Module (COM) Market 2016-2020

The author of the report recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global computer on module (COM) market: Congatec, Kontron, and MSC Technologies.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Adlinktech, Avalue, Phytec, and Portwell.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the research team said: “An emerging market trend which is boosting market growth is advances in transistor technology. With advances in technology, vendors have been able to reduce manufacturing costs and improve power consumption. This enables them to achieve economies of scale as well as a competitive advantage. For instance, 22 nm-tri-gate transistor technology was replaced by more advanced 14 nm technology in 2014.”

According to the report, a key growth driver is the longevity and reliability of COMs. Globalization and rising demand for connected devices, including IoT, have increased the need for servers at global level. Higher uplink time and reduced unplanned activities are important for a network or service provider, especially in a cloud-based service, to implement industrial IoT-supporting hardware. COM is a major component of devices like servers and is essential for various rackmount applications. A lower total cost of ownership (TCO) of the manufacturer, along with improved performance, give the vendors a competitive edge over other contemporary technologies such as SBCs.

Further, the report states that one challenge that could restrict market growth is the failure to forecast market demand. Failures in forecasting demand can result in loss of revenue as well as provide opportunity for new suppliers to enter the market, which further increases the competition.

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.
