This report provides strategic analysis of the global System-on-Chip (SoC) market. The scope of the report includes competitive analysis of various market segments based on the types of SoC, applications of SoCs in various industry verticals and in-depth scrutiny of the SoC market across different geographic segments. Global market for system-on-chip has been covered under the scope of this report. A SoC is similar to a central processing unit (CPU) of a computer. However it is much smaller in size and all the components such as microprocessor, memory and peripherals among others are packaged together onto the chip. The components of a SoC vary depending on the device it is to be used in. A typical SoC consists of a microprocessor, graphic processing unit (GPU), memory, peripherals, timing sources, analog interfaces, external interfaces, power management circuits and voltage regulators among others. The small form factor combined with computing power of SoCs has led to its integration into various devices such as smart phones, smart washing machines, tablets, smart air-conditioners, smart television, set-top boxes, industrial automation applications and electrocardiogram telemetry devices among others. Thus a SoC contains everything that a motherboard of a computer has but it consumes much less space and power while having similar or better performance.
The global SoC market is primarily driven by the increasing demand for smarter and power efficient electronic devices. Consumer demand for faster performing devices while consumption of lesser power has led to increased materialization of Moore’s law. Also the reducing cost per function of integrated circuits (IC) has also boosted this market. The increasing demand for better electronic devices at lower costs has led to vast improvement in technologies of SoC manufacturing. Dimensional scaling of ICs has led to decreased cost and increased manifestation of Moore’s law. Newer technologies of SoC designing and manufacturing have led to the reduction in the wire resistivity and capacitance of the transistors on an IC, coupled with better inter-connectivity of various parts, which has led to further declining of cost per function of ICs. Furthermore, the increasing demand for embedded graphics and multi-core technologies has also been positively impacting the SoC market. Newer SoCs having up to ten cores are entering the market and the number of cores can be expected to increase significantly during the forecast period. The increasing dependence on internet and overall increase in internet users has also led to increasing reliance on SoCs having internet centric applications. Efficient and minimal power consumption by SoCs is becoming a priority for the industry since consumers today are increasingly opting for devices having better battery back-up.
