Compact nature of SoC
System on Chip consists of various different microprocessor subsystems along with I/O interfaces and memories. All these components are mounted on the same chip and are connected internally, which reduces the overall size. Moreover, the SoC provides higher design security at firmware and hardware levels. The design of upgraded SoCs in smaller size is underway, which offer doubled computing speed when compared with its predecessors. This in turn drives the SoC market.
Increase in adoption of IoT
The system-on-chip market share is witnessing rapid adoption of Internet of Things (IoT), due to high penetration of Wi-Fi connectivity, increase in demand for smart wearables, technological enhancements in wireless network technologies, and increased adoption of cloud platform. Furthermore, development of smart transportation and smart cities has led to increased adoption of IoT. This in turns propels the growth of the SoC market.
Surge in demand for smart and power-efficient electronic devices
Consumers opt for devices, which have better battery back-up as well as efficient & minimal power consumption. Thus, there is increase in consumer demand for the device to deliver enhanced performance as well as consume less power. SoC provides faster execution of tasks due to its memory and high-speed processor. Latest SoC's having up to 10 cores are also entering into the SoC market due to continuously increasing demand and SoC's with further cores are expected to be deployed in near future to fulfill the consumer demand. This demand for smart and power-efficient electronic devices is expected to drive the system-on-chip market growth.
High initial cost of design & development and maintenance
If the total number of SoCs to be developed is small, then the cost associated with each SoC will be very high. In addition, the cost incurred due to malfunction or failure of a single transistor or system damage is high as the complete board needs to be replaced. Moreover, servicing of System on Chip is expensive, which may impede the stated market growth.
High demand for compact and scalable ICs in the global electronic industry
Characteristics of compact and scalable ICs, such as compact size, lightweight, reduced cost, low power consumption, high reliability, and ease of replacement, play an important role in the electronic industry. Thus, there is continuous demand of applications loaded with ICs, which is expected to create lucrative opportunities for the key players operating in the global system-on-chip (SoC) market. In addition, ICs are implemented in various applications such as automobile, computers, television, and portable devices such as laptop, cell phones, camera, play stations, and more.
