Global Microcontrollers (MCU) Market: Snapshot

Awareness regarding smart energy management, coupled with the latest technological advancements, is the key driver of the global microcontrollers (MCU) market. A favorable regulatory scenario supporting deployment of smart grid systems is likely to create viable growth opportunities for the market. The technology is chiefly used in smart cards for ensuring better safety to electronic banking transactions and government IDs such as mass-transit fares, security applications, passports, and medical records.

Microcontrollers are manufactured as application-specific integrated circuits to be embedded inside devices they control. Due to this function, MCUs are also referred as embedded controllers. They comprise memory, peripherals, and processors. A majority of the demand witnessed by the market arises from the automotive industry. Growth witnessed in the sales of automobiles will thus prove a strong driving force for the global microcontrollers market. A considerable number of MCUs are required in an average automotive, enabling it to function effectively. With the advent of the novel features such as GPS and keyless entry, the demand for MCUs in the automotive industry is higher than ever.
