Microcontroller Market

 

Q4 2014 Microcontroller Market Tracker

The worldwide microcontroller market is expected to increase by 4 percent for revenue and 13 percent for unit shipments in 2014. This product category includes 8-bit, 16-bit, and 32 bit devices. USB controllers and IC card revenue and unit shipments are also included. This tracker provides forecasts by region, market segment, application market, and product category. Also included is market share.

Q3 2014 Microcontroller Market Tracker

The microcontroller market relies heavily on the industrial and automotive market, but products are found in all five market segments. These products are becoming more sophisticated, lower power, and are available in very small footprint packaging. This tracker provides forecasts for microcontrollers by region, market segment, application, and product type. Market share is also provided. Two new market share tables have been added to this issue including Wireless Infrastructure Microcontrollers and Other Wireless Microcontrollers.

Q2 2014 Microcontroller Market Tracker

The microcontroller market relies heavily on the industrial and automotive market, but products are found in all five market segments. These products are becoming more sophisticated, lower power, and are available in very small footprint packaging. This tracker provides forecasts for microcontrollers by region, market segment, application, and product type. Market share is also provided. Industrial semiconductors may not be as “recession-proof”, as previously thought, but this industry is predicted to improve in 2014, a 4 percent increase in revenue over 2013. The market is expected to reach close to $35 billion this year and with a compound annual growth rate of 6 percent, will reach over $47 billion by 2019.

Q3 2013 Microcontroller Market Tracker

As the global economy continues to recover, microcontroller sales are expected to increase by 1 percent in 2013. With this slight increase, Databeans predicts that this industry's revenues will grow to be about $14.7 billion and will continue rising by a predicted 7 percent for the next five years. Revenues for this market come primarily from Asia Pacific and Japan, both regions growing much faster overall than the United States or Europe; this is likely due to an increase in outsourcing within the industry and, therefore, an overall decrease in price for some of the more expensive 16-bit and 32-bit chips. Prices for microcontrollers are expected to remain fairly flat in 2013. This tracker provides revenue and unit forecasts for microcontrollers, by region, market segment, application, and by product type. Market share is also provided for 2011 and 2010. The second quarter issue of this tracker will include market share for 2012 and 2011.
