Microcontroller Market was valued at $9.80 billion in 2016 and is projected to reach $18.88 billion by 2024, having a CAGR of 8.6% during the forecast period of 2017 to 2024. The 32-bit microcontroller segment generated the highest revenue share in the global microcontroller market.

Microcontroller is a computer chip that controls most of the complex electronic devices people use every day. It is a self-contained system with peripherals, memory and a processor and is explicitly used as an embedded system. A major share of programmable microcontrollers which are used today, are embedded in other consumer products or machinery such as phones, peripherals, automobiles and other home appliances for computer systems. Microcontrollers are available in different types and memory, as per the requirement, such as, 8GB, 16 GB and 32GB. They are widely used for applications such as automobile engine, control systems and medical devices

Microcontroller Market Determinants

Since a couple of decades a rapid surge in the growth of automotive industry has been witnessed and is expected to continue with the same pace. This will act as a major driving factor for the growth of the microcontroller market as they are highly used in automobiles for providing higher degree of automation to them. Moreover, decreasing prices of microcontrollers and constantly rising demands for electronic medical devices are also expected stimulate the market growth. In addition to this, increasing awareness regarding environment and energy efficiency has led to the emergence of electric vehicles. The extensive usage of microcontrollers in such vehicles is expected to fuel the market pace in the near future. As per the data declared by International Energy Agency, total number of electric cars in 2017 will cross 1.8 billion units. However, high rivalry situations, operational failure and macroeconomic conditions may hamper the market growth.
