Analyzing the Global Market for Microcontrollers 2013-2016

(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Dublin - Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Analyzing the Global Market for Microcontrollers 2013" report to their offering.

This in-depth report begins with an introduction to microcontrollers. We look at what microcontrollers are, the classification of microcontrollers, design and programs of microcontrollers, applications of microcontrollers, the supply chain of this industry as well as an analysis of microcontrollers versus microprocessors.

A microcontroller is a small, single integrated circuit that can be found in many different kinds of devices such as automobiles, DVD players, digital cameras, iPods, consumer appliances, cell phones, wireless radios, RFID systems, and many other devices. Microcontrollers are also popularly found in the field of robotics these days.

There are several microcontroller architectures and there are dozens of manufacturers for these as well. The most common types of microcontrollers found today are the 8-bit, 16-bit and the 32-bit microcontrollers. 8-bit microcontrollers are one of the most common one, with over 50% of all the CPUs sold globally containing 8-bit microcontrollers.

Perhaps the most important area of usage for microcontrollers today is their use in smart meters that make up the smart grid. The smart grid is a major market for the use of microcontrollers, and the growing investment in the global smart grid industry makes up a huge revenue source for the global microcontroller industry.

Analyzing the global market for microcontrollers we look at industry statistics and industry forecast till 2016, industry sales, the role of microcontrollers in the smart grid industry through their usage in smart meters, in In Home Displays and in communication over transmission lines. We also look at the industry segmentation of the global microcontroller industry through application areas of automobiles, communication segment, computer segment, consumer electronics and the industrial segment.

An analysis of the major markets includes a look at the microcontroller market in Asia Pacific, Europe, Middle East & Africa, as well as North and South America. Under Asia Pacific, we analyze the individual microcontroller markets in China, Japan, Taiwan and South Korea.

An analysis of the global microcontroller industry is carried out through the different types of microcontroller, that is the 8-bit microcontroller, 16-bit and the 32-bit microcontrollers. We also analyze the various impacts on the global microcontroller industry such as an increase in smart grid projects around the world, the impact of the economic slowdown on the industry, the use of microcontrollers in smart cards, and other factors are looked at.

An analysis of the major industry players wraps up this comprehensive report on the global microcontroller industry.
