IoT has increased the need for interoperability among IoT devices, which has led to the origin of connected devices. Vendors across the market must work together on an open-source platform to set standards to determine the interoperability among IoT devices. For instance, AllSeen Alliance was founded in 2013 with an objective to create a larger ecosystem of vendors and products. AllSeen Alliance provides an open source IoT framework, AllJoyn, to enable companies and enterprises to create interoperable products. Through this platform, manufacturers of devices and apps can exchange information, regardless of brands and categories.

In this report, Technavio analysts highlight the rising penetration of ICs in the automotive sector as a key factor contributing to the growth of the global fabless IC market:

Rising penetration of ICs in the automotive sector

In the automotive sector, ICs are used to create safer and greener automobiles, which are cost-effective and offer high performance. Most OEMs use two or three ICs in automobiles depending on the complexity of the design. ICs are integrated into cars for audio amplifiers and various systems, including crash bag, air sensing, stability control, fuel injection, GPS, anti-lock braking, display, infotainment, power doors and windows, automated driving, and collision detection.

"The automotive market is expected to grow during the forecast period owing to the increasing car production. This will generate significant demand for semiconductor ICs which enable partial or high automation that will lead to fully autonomous vehicles. In 2017, the automotive IC segment represented close to 13% of the global IC market, which was valued at around 293 billion," says a senior analyst at Technavio for embedded systems research.
