IoT Chip Is the Fastest-Growing Market During the Forecast Period


Northbrook, IL -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/17/2021 -- The global IoT chip market size is estimated to grow from USD 392.0 billion in 2020 to USD 525.4 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 6.0%. The key drivers for the growth of the IoT chip market are the development of internet connectivity in technologically advancing countries and the growth of low-cost smart wireless sensor networks. The growth of application-specific MCUs and flexible SoC-type designs, adoption of IPv6, which provides more IP address space, and technologies such as AI fueling IoT adoption are also expected to drive the IoT chip market. Concerns regarding the security and privacy of user data act as restraints for the market.

Logic devices, by hardware, is projected to be the fastest-growing segment in the IoT chip market during the forecast period

To implement IoT, the most common type of logic device used is a field-programmable gate array (FPGA). FPGA is an IC that is designed to be configured by a customer or designer even after manufacturing—therefore, the name "field-programmable." FPGAs are programmed using hardware description languages, such as VHSIC Hardware Description Language (VHDL) or Verilog. FPGA offers advantages such as rapid prototyping, shorter time-to-market, ability to reprogram in the field for debugging, and long product life cycles. The significant increase in the shipment of logic devices can be attributed to the rising demand for wearables, e.g., smartwatches, especially in developing economies, such as China, India, and Brazil, as well as the increasing participation of domestic players in the wearables market.
