A microcontroller is a small-sized, self-contained microcomputer that is designed to perform a dedicated task and execute one specific application. It has an integrated circuit that consists of a programmable input and output peripherals such as timers, counters, memory (RAM, ROM and EPROM), along with various serial ports on a single chip. Having low power requirements, microcontrollers are widely used in passengers cars and commercial vehicles; in consumer electronics such as cellphones, microwave ovens, cameras, and washing machines; office machines such as scanners, photocopiers, and printers, security systems, ATMs, etc. A more technologically advanced version of microcontrollers is used in aircrafts, marine vessels, medical life support systems and robots to perform critical tasks.

Microcontroller Market Trends:

The thriving healthcare sector, along with the increasing usage of consumer electronics, is one of the key factors driving the market growth. In the healthcare sector, microcontrollers are extensively used in devices such as spirometers and heart rate monitors. They aid in minimizing the costs of medical devices and provide accurate information. Furthermore, growing geriatric population and increasing prevalence of health disorders are expected to drive the demand for medical devices, which, in turn, is expected to impact the market for microcontrollers positively. In the consumer electronics sector, there is a need for devices with greater speed and higher functionality, which is expected to significantly drive product demand. Additionally, the proliferation of smart grid systems has also enhanced the requirement of microcontrollers across the globe. These systems consist of the remote-control facility and digital communication that requires microcontrollers to function. Moreover, the efficient functioning of automobiles is enabled by microcontrollers. Several advanced features such as head-up display (HUD), advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), and movie and sound systems require microcontrollers for their efficient operation.
