Dublin, Nov. 04, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The “Microprocessor in Embedded Applications: Global Markets” report has been added to’s offering.

A microprocessor or microprocessor unit (MPU) is a programmable device that accepts binary data from an input device, processes the data according to the instructions stored in the memory and provides results as output. In other words, the microprocessor executes the program stored in the memory and transfers data to and from the outside world through I/O ports.

Any microprocessor-based system essentially comprises three parts, namely the microprocessor, the memory and peripheral I/O devices. The microprocessor is generally referred to as the heart of the system as it performs all the operations and also controls the rest of the system.

The growth in autonomous driving systems and electrification in the automotive market, growing demand for connected devices and implementation of 5G communication infrastructure will be the major drivers for the MPU market. Growth in high-performance computing (HPC) and growing demand for smartphones and wearables will create huge opportunities for vendors in the market.

In this report, the global market for microprocessors is segmented by architecture, technology, products, end-user industries, and geography. By architecture, the MPU market is categorized into ARM based MPUs and x86-based MPUs. X86-based MPU architecture is currently dominating the market.

Based on technology, the global market for MPUs is segmented into RISC (reduced instruction set computer), DSP (digital signal processor), ASIC (application-specific integrated circuit), CISC (Complex Instruction Set Computer), and superscalar. Based on product in which MPUs are used, the market is segmented into smartphones, personal computers, laptops, and others. Based on end-user applications, the MPU market is segmented into networking devices; medical and healthcare; aerospace and defence; military; consumer electronics and home appliances; computing and storage; industrial; automotive and transportation; and others.

By geography, the global market for MPUs is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Rest of the World (RoW). The presence of leading global MPU manufacturing bases, robust technology infrastructure, favorable political and economic environment, and surge in demand for smartphones and wearables and high adoption of advanced technologies, such as AI, IoT and cloud are some of the key factors driving the Asia -Pacific market. Asia-Pacific is also currently the fastest growing market for MPUs globally.
