February 2024 | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)

Microcontroller Market Growth & Trends

The global microcontroller market size is expected to reach USD 69.87 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 11.7% from 2024 to 2030, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. With the rise in healthcare expenditure worldwide, driven by an increasing prevalence of disorders such as immunodeficiency are growing in population, a growing percentage of the elderly, and the occurrence of diseases like diabetes and high blood pressure, there is a corresponding surge in the demand for electronic medical devices to measure sugar levels and blood pressure.

Manufacturers of medical devices are responding by introducing reliable and cost-effective equipment to the market. Microcontrollers play a critical role in various medical care devices, ensuring greater affordability and reliability. Devices such as blood pressure monitors and blood glucose meters incorporate a significant number of microcontrollers (MCUs). Consequently, the medical industry has a substantial demand for MCUs.

Prominent companies across various sectors such as telecommunications, consumer electronics, and automotive are placing significant emphasis on the integration of Artificial Intelligence (AI) into their products. One notable example is Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., which has made substantial investments in the research and development of on-device AI. This increased focus on AI has enabled the integration of machine learning capabilities in automobiles, smartphones, robots, and drones, thanks to advancements in computing power and enhanced AI algorithms.

On-device AI offers enhanced security and privacy protection as all data processing takes place offline and directly on the device. The AI industry is witnessing a notable shift towards embedded artificial intelligence. These cutting-edge advancements in AI and machine learning are opening up new avenues for the application of microcontrollers in various fields, including medical, smart cities, smart factories, IoT, and more. As a result, this development is expected to create growth opportunities for the market players.

Manufacturers of microcontrollers (MCUs) are actively developing innovative products and consistently delivering groundbreaking solutions. This trend creates opportunities for market growth. The interconnectedness of devices such as security systems, televisions, gaming consoles, home appliances, smart meters, tablets, and smartphones has driven significant advancements in microcontroller technology and is expected to drive the demand for IoT microcontrollers.

Many of these connected devices operate on batteries for extended periods without requiring replacement or maintenance, necessitating energy-efficient IoT end-node applications. The reduced costs of essential components like processors and sensors, combined with the increased utilization of wireless connectivity, have facilitated the development of intelligent products capable of seamless communication without human intervention.
