May 05, 2021 (Market Stats News via COMTEX) -- The study gives an elaboration on the market size, share analysis, demand-supply scenario, production and value chain analysis, key drivers, restraints, emerging trends, pricing structure, opportunities, profit margins, prominent business, and recent technological progress.

The global microcontroller (MCU) market by revenue is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 10.6% during the forecast period and is expected to hit around USD 48.11 Billion by 2027. The report provides an analysis of the global Microcontroller (MCU) Market for the period 2016-2027, wherein 2020 to 2027 is the forecast period and 2020 is considered as the base year.


Microcontroller is a type of processor on a single Integrated Circuit (IC) that contains processor, memory, and input/output peripheral. They are installed in automatically controlled electronic devices and products that include office machinery, remote controls, toys, power tools, home appliances, and other embedded systems. Technology used in the microcontroller ensures smooth management of electronic devices as well as prevents error occurrence activities. As a result of above mentioned benefits, microcontrollers expected to gain significant popularity among automotive, retail, communication, and other industries.

Growth Factors

Factors such as rapid innovations and developments in the automotive sector due to increasing adoption of internet of things (IoT) are responsible for the recent developments in the industry. In addition, rise in trend of automation in equipment and machinery parts spur the scope of electronic products along with technology upgradation that prominently propels the demand for the development of new solutions and products.

Various industry verticals such as smartphones, automobiles, and healthcare encourage the market growth for microcontroller by incorporating touch-sensing capabilities in the design. Several microcontroller manufacturers invest significant amount of share in the product enhancement and development.

On the contrary, major factors hampering the market growth are operational failure of MCUs in extreme climatic conditions such as extreme cold and extreme heat. In such conditions, the consumer requires a shift to mechanical devices. Nonetheless, rising demand for hybrid and electric vehicles expected to spur the future along with the untapped geographical regions that offers numerous opportunities for microcontroller market to excel worldwide.

Key Players & Strategies

The global microcontroller (MCU) market is nearly consolidated, as the major five players in the market captured half of the total revenue in the year 2019.
