Published Date: | Report Code : IT1950246


The microcontroller market is projected to register high demand during the forecast period with increasing demand from major end-use industries such as medical devices, military & defense, and consumer electronics during the forecast period. 

A microcontroller is used to control other hardware components of any device. Microcontroller comprises integrated circuits, memory chips, and input & output devices. It is widely used in communication, retail, aerospace & defense, automotive, and other industries.

Segment Analysis: 

The microcontroller market has been segmented based on product type into 8-bit, 16-bit, and 32-bit. The 8-bit technology simplifies the product design and lowers the cost of the material. It is cheaper than other types of microcontroller due to its software simplicity and lesser complexity. The 32-bit has greater processing power and consumes less power. The increasing popularity of 32-bit, owing to the decreasing unit price is expected to fuel the segment growth.

The automotive application segment of the microcontroller market is expected to witness significant demand from the automotive sector. Specifically, in the Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS), the technology uses image sensors to improve the driver’s safety using special features such as lane departure warning, parking assistance, and collision avoidance systems. The growth of the automotive sector is driven by the increase in the number of luxury cars that use advanced microcontrollers. Moreover, microcontrollers are also used in consumer electronics and healthcare products. The growth of the market is driven by the rising demand for consumer electronic products, such as microwave ovens, cameras, robots, washing machines, and other products.
