A system-on-chip (SoC) is an integrated circuit that combines various functions such as digital, analog, mixed signal, and radio frequency. It includes components such as a CPU, system memory, peripheral controllers, GPUs, specialized neural network circuitry, and radio modems. SoCs are more reliable than multi-chip systems and offer advantages such as lower power consumption and increased efficiency. Their use of a single processor helps reduce energy waste and costs. SoCs are widely used in applications such as signal processing, wireless communication, AI, and other computing activities.
The global system-on-chip market is being driven by high investment in 5G technology worldwide. The compactness of SoC and the increasing adoption of IoT are fueling the demand for system-on-chip. The market is also being propelled by the growing demand for smart and energy-efficient electronic devices. The cost-saving benefits of integrating each function of an IC, the need for multi-core technologies, and embedded graphics are among the driving factors expected to drive market growth in the near future. These factors enable the production of compact consumer electronic devices that offer improved performance while using less power. For instance, in March 2021, SAMSUNG and Marvell collaborated to develop a new System-on-a-Chip that might improve 5G network performance. This new chip is being used in Samsung’s Massive MIMO. In June 2022, Apple Inc. unveiled M2 which is a next-generation system-on-chip developed for use in Macs and iPads.
The rise in cyber-attacks has led industries to implement measures such as database management, fraud detection systems, and cybersecurity to protect their data and systems. System-on-Chip (SoC) technology can be used to integrate these measures into a single chip, making it easier and more efficient to implement them. As a result, the demand for SoCs is expected to increase as industries seek to improve their cybersecurity measures.
During the forecast period, the Asia Pacific region is expected to hold a significant share of the global system-on-chip market due to the growing demand for SoCs in the consumer electronics and IT & telecommunication industries. In this region, SoCs are commonly used in electronic devices such as laptops, consumer appliances, tablets, smartphones, and smart wearables such as fitness bands, smartwatches, handsets, and Bluetooth devices. The system-on-chip market in North America and Europe is anticipated to experience significant growth during the forecast period. This growth is driven by the rising demand for the integration of components such as CPU, graphics, and memory interfaces into a single chip in industries such as automotive, consumer electronics, and aerospace & defense.
