Microcontroller Market Outlook - 2027

The global microcontroller market size was valued at $16.49 billion in 2019 and is expected to reach $42.19 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 11.50% from 2020 to 2027.  

Microcontroller is a type of processor on a single integrated circuit, containing memory, processor, and input /output peripheral. They are installed in automatically controlled products and electronic devices such as remote controls, office machinery, home appliances, power tools, toys, and other embedded systems. Technology used in microcontroller ensures smooth management of electronic devices and prevents error occurrence activities. As a result of benefits mentioned above, microcontrollers are expected to gain popularity among communication, retail, automotive, and other industries. In addition, consumer goods, growth in the automotive market, and increase in adoption of new technologies such as touch screen and timer among others contribute to growth of the microcontroller industry.

Microcontroller-Market-2020-2027

A microcontroller is used to control a fail-safe system, manage electrical control unit functions, and automotive fault tolerant systems, where it informs the error that occurs in a vehicle (accelerator, anti-lock brake interface, and broken lights). For instance, it highlights fault tolerance, if a vehicle loses its grip on snow filled roads. Under such conditions, the incident is sensed by sensor microcontrollers, which then activate the anti-clock braking when a driver hits brakes. Hence, microcontroller is a fundamental part of the automotive industry. The automotive industry has registered significant growth in the last decade, owing to rise in income level and standard of living. 

Factors such as rapid developments and innovations in the automotive sector, owing to high adoption of internet of things (IoT) are responsible for recent developments in the automotive industry. In addition increase in trend of working through automated machinery and equipment, surge in scope of electronic products, and technology upgradation propels the demand for development of new products and solutions. Various industry verticals such as automobiles, smartphones, and healthcare aid the microcontroller market growth by incorporating touch-sensing capabilities in designs. Many microcontroller manufacturers are investing a good amount of share in developments and setting applications to enhance product accessibility. However, the major restraint for the market is its operational failures in extreme climatic conditions such as extreme cold and extreme heat. In such conditions the consumer needs to shift to mechanical devices. The demand for electric and hybrid vehicles is expected to increase in the future and untapped geographical regions are expected to provide several opportunities for microcontroller market to grow globally.
