Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/vjrkkt/microcontrollers) has announced the addition of the "2013 Report on the International Microcontrollers (MCU) Market - Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth and Forecast to 2018" report to their offering.
Hybrid electric vehicles are gaining popularity due to the plethora of environmental benefits they offer. This is estimated to result in increasing demand for microcontrollers, which can be primarily attributed to the large number of MCUs required for emission control and fuel efficiency in these vehicles. Additionally, price cuts in the industry due to high degree of competition are also expected to further market growth.
Decreasing product life-cycles has resulted in growing need for agility and flexibility in the industrial ecosystem. Microcontrollers enable industrial automation by supporting extensive feedback control mechanisms, and advanced sensors among others. 32-bit microcontrollers are increasingly becoming popular as a direct consequence of reducing unit prices. The large number of participants in the market is expected to affect the competitive landscape. With increasing competition driving price cuts, industry players are forced to provide cost-efficient low-power device in order to sustain their buyer base. In addition, weak economic conditions are also expected to decelerate market growth.
