Worldwide Embedded and Intelligent Systems Forecast, 2016–2020: Microprocessors, Microcontrollers, Sensors, and Connectivity

The IDC study centers on the ongoing evolution of major system segments made up of traditional embedded systems that are now undergoing a disruptive migration to intelligent systems and the promise of service models that will emerge with growth in adoption of these systems and the data generated. The microprocessors, microcontrollers, connectivity, and sensor opportunity enabled by both embedded and intelligent systems is quantified and forecast through 2020."A radical transformation is under way from the cloud to the edge of every major system. In an effort to address the opportunity, both edge and cloud infrastructure needs to continue to scale and support trillions of sensors and billions of systems," said Les Santiago, research director for Wireless and IoT Semiconductors at IDC. "Increasing intelligence at the edge will be one of the primary drivers of growth of the overall semiconductor market over the next few years against the backdrop of a maturing smartphone and PC market and a difficult pricing environment in the memory markets. As such, vendors would benefit from structuring their product portfolios to take advantage of this trend."
