An 8-bit microcontroller contains an 8-bit central processing unit (CPU) and a set of high-performance state-of-the-art peripherals, such as memory, controllers, interfaces and external hardware, to assist with computation. It is widely utilized in word processing, gaming software, music development, spreadsheets, and task management as it consumes low power and improves computer performance. Nowadays, manufacturers around the world are introducing modern 8-bit microcontrollers in various shapes and sizes integrated with complex features, including multiple cores, advanced hardware security and internet capabilities.

8-Bit Microcontroller Market Trends:
8-bit microcontrollers are incorporated in the electronics of vehicles to withstand extreme environmental conditions and stress. This, in confluence with the boosting sales of passenger vehicles on account of rapid urbanization, inflating income levels, and improving road infrastructure, represents one of the key factors contributing to the market growth. Apart from this, the escalating use of smart medical device technology in telehealth and remote patient monitoring is catalyzing the demand for 8-bit microcontrollers in nebulizers and syringe pumps to facilitate continuous drug delivery or real-time dosing control. This can also be attributed to the emerging trend of the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT), which gathers and implements medical tools connected to public healthcare technology infrastructure via internet-based communications systems. Moreover, the home automation trend, coupled with the growing demand for miniature devices, are driving the usage of 8-bit microcontrollers in consumer electronics and home appliances like washing machines and microwave ovens. Besides this, the rising application of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems in schools, airports, hospitals and residential, and commercial buildings is anticipated to create a positive outlook for the market across the globe.
