Global Single Board Computer (SBC) Market 2017-2021

About Single Board Computer (SBC)

A Single Board Computer (SBC) is a complete computer that is built on a single circuit board with memory, input and output devices, processors, and other peripheral functions of the computer. SBC can be used for developmental purposes, educational institutes, as well as industrial, automation, and military applications. Home computers and portable computers are also integrated into a single printed circuit board. SBCs do not rely on the expansion of slots for peripheral functions.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global single board computer (SBC) market to grow at a CAGR of 12.67% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Single Board Computer (SBC) Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global single board computer (SBC) market: Digi International, Advantech, Eurotech, Kontron and Radisys.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: VersaLogic Corporation, UDOO, ARBOR Technology, American Portwell Technology, Logic Supply and Trenton System.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is popularity of low-cost SBCs. SBC manufacturers worldwide are aiming to develop low-cost SBCs to attract customers to the market. The ASP of SBCs in 2015 was $60.90, which was still high for a majority of the users.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is increase in the use of rugged design with high reliability. SBC’s are rugged and long lasting boards that are used in many applications such as industrial, military, and aerospace. These boards are ready for deployment as they provide many industry standard connectors and interfaces, which can work in an environment of -40°C to 85 °C with high vibrations. Memory, interface, and digital logic are put together on a printed circuit board; the result of this culmination will be a highly reliable SBC that performs a variety of tasks in harsh environments. SBCs such as PC/104 bus connectors have features, like DIO, ADC/DAC, and power Ethernet, that are highly reliable. With these form factors, SBCs can be readily deployed in the market and allow vendors to get their products out to the market much faster.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is SBCs can be expensive for high volume products and applications. The operating cost of SBCs is the minimum for a single basic computer, but with high volume, the operating cost will be higher. This is not because of fixed or variable cost but because of customer preference and specifications. As SBCs are used to create API that is a set of instructions and functions, which are used to create an application for an operating system or other services. As the components inside SBCs are self-contained, they cannot be changed once they are manufactured. Warehouse cost and inventory cost will be high. Thus, SBCs can be more expensive for products and applications that have higher volumes.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
