Market Synopsis


Global Microcontroller Unit (MCU) Market depends on this factor significantly, which is expecting substantial CAGR growth during the forecast period (2016-2025).


A microcontroller is a compact IC that is designed for specific operations and functions in an embedded system. Microcontrollers are small computers integrated on a single circuit and include a core processor, memory, and some programmable input and output peripherals. The microcontroller unit market has tremendous opportunities, as the utilization of electronic goods is increasing rapidly. IoT requires sensors and actuators to link the physical and digital worlds. The Internet of things (IoT) microcontroller is a combination of IoT technology and microcontroller. A sensor converts a physical state into an analog or digital signal, while an actuator turns a digital signal into a physical effect. The next step in the IoT architecture is the computing system which processes or generates the digital signals which can be performed by microcontroller. A study states that by the end of 2021, there would be more than 200 billion connected devices helping the organization and personals in their daily activities. Several devices need miniaturized IC and microcontrollers. Thus, the growing IoT market would significantly contribute to the growth of the global microcontroller unit (MCU) market.


The demand for customizable ICs is a major factor driving the microcontroller unit market. The focus of microcontroller manufacturers toward product innovation has given rise to the customized ICs. The microcontrollers designed for a particular user instead of general use are customizable ICs. These microcontrollers are generally application-specific as they can be modified as per the product demand. The automotive microcontroller units are used for different systems such as rollover and stability control, fuel injection, crash bag and air sensing, head units and audio amplifiers in automobiles. High automation in the automotive sector is also creating a high demand for the microcontrollers and thus boosting the market growth. Apart from this, the healthcare sector is also a major user of microcontrollers for various equipment such as electrocardiography machines and digital X-rays. Therefore, the innovation of customizable ICs is contributing to the growth of the microcontroller unit market.
