Global Embedded Processor Market 2015-2019

About embedded processors

An embedded processor is a type of microprocessor that consists of a variety of discrete chips embedded in one system to perform multiple functions. Embedded processors include dedicated computing cores, memory, and programmable input/output peripherals. They consume less power and are cost effective and compact in size. They are integrated into devices to handle multiple processes in real time for applications in consumer electronics, medical equipment, industrial machines, household appliances, and automobiles.

Technavio's analysts forecast the global embedded processors market to grow at a CAGR of 3.89% over 2014-2019.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Embedded Processor Market 2015-2019

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Embedded Processor Market: Cavium, Freescale Semiconductor, Intel, Marvell Technology Group and Texas Instruments



Other prominent vendors in the market are: Analog Devices, Applied Micro Circuits, Atmel, Broadcom, Infineon Technologies, LSI, Microchip Technology, NVIDIA, NXP Semiconductors, Renesas Electronics and STMicroelectronics

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The number of bits in a processor is directly related to its storage capacity and processing speed. The market share of 32-bit processors is likely to grow due to increased applications in the consumer electronics sector. 32-bit and 64-bit processors are integrated in consumer electronics to enhance the performance of an operating system. These processors have impacted the market for 8-bit and 16-bit processors. 32-bit processors have an edge over 64-bit processors, as many devices like smartphones and tablets are incompatible with 64-bit processors.”

According to the report, the mobile devices market is likely to grow substantially during the forecast period, with APAC seeing the most growth. The presence of many manufacturers in this region and increased sales of mobile devices in countries such as China, Japan, and India will drive the market for multi-core embedded processors.

Further, the report states that a sudden fall in demand from the end-user market leads to high inventories and decline in profits for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).
