Microcontrollers, DSPs, & IP-Core Chips market worth $41.69 Billion by 2020

Microcontrollers, which are one of the most widely used component in industries such as automobile and consumer electronics, have seen tremendous improvements in recent years in terms of increased number of applications as well as developments in technology. With the increased rate of consumer devices involving image, audio, and video processing, demand of digital signal processors have been positive. Also, the need for improved performance, fast time-to-market, increased customization, and lower risk of fatigue is profiting the Intellectual Property (IP) core chip companies tremendously. A semiconductor Intellectual Property Core, also known as IP Core or IP Block, is a unit of architectural layout of a specific or whole part of a semiconductor chip. IP cores, after the development by third parties, in general are licensed to semiconductor chip manufacturers. Or they can be developed in-house, owned and used by a single semiconductor chip manufacturer alone. IP cores can be used as building blocks within semiconductor chips to add advanced features and characteristics by developing them as per the prescribed architectural design.

Microcontrollers, Digital signal processor, and IP core chips are the backbone of all the systems and products that modern day consumers use to communicate, travel, entertain, work, produce energy, and increase comfort. Over the last few decades, Moore’s Law which connects the increasing power and decreasing price of semiconductors, led to a tremendous growth of the electronics industry. This, in turn, has led to the continuous production of devices and solutions which are cheaper, more powerful, and smaller in size. Also, the government interests in building semiconductor industries in the developing countries, such as China and India, is a push for the Microcontrollers, DSPs, and IP core chips market and all the related semiconductor markets.


The Microcontrollers, DSPs, and IP core chips markets are expected to show a huge potential in terms of applications such as automotive and transportation, consumer electronics, industrial, security, communications, and medical and healthcare. The emergence of a number of connected devices, increased demand of faster image, video, and audio processing capabilities, and immense competition are pushing increased investments in the R&D activities. This is bound to result in a significant number of changes in the Microcontrollers, DSPs, and IP core chips market.
