Favorable regulatory scenario for the installation of smart grid systems is expected to boost microcontrollers demand over the forecast period. This is also expected to be a key growth opportunity for major industry participants.

The report “Microcontroller Market Analysis By Product (4/8-bit, 16-bit, 32-bit), By Application (Automotive, Consumer Electronics, Industrial) And Segment Forecasts To 2020,” is available now to Grand View Research customers and can also be purchased directly at

Further key findings from the study suggest:

• Global microcontroller market was estimated at 17,393.6 million units in 2013, and is expected to reach 39,108.5 million units by 2020, growing at a CAGR of 12.3% from 2014 to 2020.
• 32-bit microcontrollers accounted for over 34% of the market in 2013; the segment is further expected to dominate global market revenue over the next six years. It is also expected to be the fastest growing product segment, at an estimated CAGR of 13.0% in terms of volume from 2014 to 2020.
• Automotive accounted for over 30% of the market in 2013, and is expected to remain the largest application area over the next six years. Consumer electronics occupied over 20% of the global market share in 2013. Increasing proliferation of these devices and technological advancement are expected to give impetus to the market over the forecast period.
• Asia Pacific is expected to be the largest and fastest growing regional market over the next six years. It accounted for over 35% of the market volume in 2013, and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.8% in terms of revenue from 2014 to 2020.

Atrial Fibrillation Treatment Market Analysis, Market Size, Application Analysis, Regional Outlook, Competitive Strategies And Forecasts, 2014 To 2020

Atrial fibrillation is a type of cardiac arrhythmia which is caused by irregular electrical activities in the atria. Atrial fibrillation on the basis of the severity of the condition is divided into three types namely paroxysmal (symptoms stop within 24 hours), persistent (symptoms continue for more than a week) and permanent (long term) atrial fibrillation. According to WHO, atrial fibrillation is the most common type of arrhythmia. The prevalence of this disorder was estimated at 1.5% to 2% in 2011 in the developed world. Rising incidence rates of diseases triggering atrial fibrillation such as high blood pressure, hyperthyroidism, pneumonia, pulmonary embolus and obesity is one of the most significant factors...

Oleochemicals Market Analysis, Market Size, Application Analysis, Regional Outlook, Competitive Strategies And Forecasts, 2014 To 2020

Oleochemicals are chemical products derived from triglycerides of animal or vegetable origin and are analogous to petrochemicals derived from petroleum. Commercially, they are used in three forms; fatty alcohols, fatty acids, glycerin and other products such as amines and methyl esters. They are derived from bio sources such as coconut and palm oil and are generally biodegradable, making them an ideal replacement to petrochemicals. In addition, the low toxicity makes them suitable for certain applications where toxicity could be of key importance. The current activities in the field of oleochemicals are restricted to the Asia Pacific region, particularly across countries such as China, India, Indonesia and Malaysia. The high demand from consumer markets such as food and...

Semiconductor Wireless Sensor Internet of Things (IoT) Market Analysis, Market Size, Application Analysis, Regional Outlook, Competitive Strategies And Forecasts, 2014 To 2020

Internet of Things (IoT) refers to the virtual representation of uniquely identifiable objects on a network. Objects, animals or people are provided or embedded with unique identifiers or sensors, helping them to gain the ability of communication and automatically transferring data over a network without requiring human interaction. These things or objects have the ability to harness each other’s data by sharing resources and enhancing dependability and scope of the resulting services. The Internet is expected to get bigger due to the incorporation of sensors and intelligence into consumer devices and physical assets and the connection of these to the Internet. A dynamic heterogeneous network can be deployed in remote and unreachable places such as...
