Market Snapshot

Global System on Module Market valued at USD 2,390.4 Million in 2019 and is expected to reach USD 3,774.9 Million by 2026 with a CAGR of 7.97% during the forecast period, 2020–2026.

Engineers are facing challenges in finding new ways to design products that would enhance intelligence, connectivity, and performance while cutting costs, power consumption, and size of the product. In such cases, a system on module (SoM) is considered as an ideal platform for quick and focused product design.

A system on module is an off-the-shelf component that integrates processor, memory, power supply, debugging, and connectivity to make the device work. It does not have any connectors; instead, it is designed to be plugged into a carrier board. An SoM can be used in various applications, including eBook reader, deep learning, wearable, automation, test and measurement, industrial human-machine interface (HMI), drone, medical imaging, and industrial control.

Manufacturers prefer system on modules as they are ideal for product designing. The growing demand for system on modules can be attributed to the increasing demand for portable and wireless devices. The rising adoption of these modules in medical devices has also contributed to market growth during the forecast period. However, system complexities in X86 processors have resulted in restricting the market growth.

Asia-Pacific accounted for the largest market share of 33.3% in 2019 followed by North America. The increasing uptake of wearable healthcare devices across developed economies is fueling the market. In addition, the rising penetration of IoT technology in North America will further accelerate the market growth.

On the basis of type, the system on module (SoM) market is segmented into arm architecture, X86 architecture, and power architecture. In this X86 architecture is dominating the market and the ARM architecture is the highest growing sub-segment in the market. The ARM architecture growth is majorly driven by its lesser complexity compared to x86 processors, accelerating the adoption of ARM-based processors in various boards and modules. The demand for ARM processors in SoM is continuously increasing owing to their single cycle computing with reduced instruction sets. Acorn RISC Machine (ARM) is a family of reduced instruction set computing (RISC) architectures for computer processors, configured for various environments. ARM processors are desirable for light, portable, battery-powered devices, including smartphones, laptops, and tablet computers, as well as other embedded systems. Some of the leading manufacturers of ARM-based systems on chips are Congatec AG, Digi International, and Kontron.
