The global microcontroller socket market size reached US$ 1.06 Billion in 2021. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 1.52 Billion by 2027, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 5.80% during 2022-2027.

Microcontroller sockets, also known as integrated circuit (IC) sockets, are static connectors designed for low-power devices. Quad-flat package (QFP), small outline package (SOP), dual-in-line package (DIP), ball grid array (BGA), and small outline IC (SOIC) are some standard product variants. These sockets are used to safely insert and remove IC chips that may get damaged from soldering. Microcontroller sockets offer numerous advantages, such as low power consumption, optimal data bandwidth, flexibility, susceptibility, high-end user interface support, and low system cost. As a result, they find extensive applications across the automotive, consumer electronics, industrial, medical, military, and defense industries.

Microcontroller Socket Market Trends:
The market is primarily being driven by the widespread product adoption in the automotive industry. Microcontroller sockets are used to support the small design and high level of integration in body electronics, driving safety, and information devices. In line with this, the escalating demand for smart energy for metering and power line communications with high accuracy, further helping in improving the performance of meters, is favoring the market growth. Additionally, the increasing need for automation that assists in miniaturization and digitization and facilitates dynamics in the field of technology is acting as another growth-inducing factor. Apart from this, the introduction of miniaturized microcontroller sockets that supports high-performance, high-density demands and deliver fast solutions is providing an impetus to the market growth. Moreover, the widespread adoption of BGAs that are usually preferred for permanently mounted devices, such as microprocessors, and are used for ICs and area type of surface-mount packaging is propelling the market growth. Furthermore, key players are focusing on developing IC packaging techniques delivering a high application in a low-cost, -profile, and -power design is positively influencing the market growth. The factors, including the widespread product adoption in the military and defense industry for enhanced security and extensive research and development (R&D) activities, are supporting the market growth.
