The Global Microprocessor Market size is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 3.6% over the forecast period, and reach US$286.1 billion by 2028 from US$182.2 billion in 2017.  The market has been experiencing significant growth in recent years. This is due to the growing demand for high-performance chipsets that are powering devices such as desktop computers, mobile phones, and tablets. The increasing number of applications in other industries, such as automotive powertrain systems, industrial automation, and medical imaging equipment also stimulated this growth.


The Microprocessor market is a segment of the semiconductor industry and it comprises all electronic devices that use silicon-based integrated circuits as their principal component. These chips are used in various types of computing platforms, such as laptops, desktops computers, tablets, smartphones, or other handheld mobile devices. The most common microprocessor design used today by the majority of computer manufacturers is based on either x86 or ARM architectures; AMD and Intel have dominated the market as their products are compatible with both types of architecture.

Microprocessors have become an integral part of any type of computer or data processing system. They come in two forms: desktop processors (including laptop processors) and mobile processor cores (different from CPUs). The major difference between them lies in how they process information: while CPUs handle only one task at a time, microprocessors can execute several tasks concurrently. That is why desktop processors are slower than mobile processor cores in single-threaded applications.


On the basis of Type, the market is segmented need into Desktop Microprocessors, Mobile Microprocessors, and Performance Microprocessors. The Desktop processors segment is the largest in terms of revenue with a share of over 82%.


Desktop Microprocessors:

Desktop microprocessors are a type of CPU chip used in desktop computers. Desktop processors have varying architectures and specifications, ranging from the simple Intel Atom to the powerful AMD Ryzen Threadripper. Desktop microprocessors are used in PCs and laptops, servers, and workstations.


Mobile Microprocessors:

Mobile processor cores (different from CPUs) handle only one task at a time, but they can process more information than desktop processors since they use multiple processing units that operate simultaneously. GPUs also fall under this category because they provide additional computing power to accelerate graphics rendering and improve system performance without compromising battery life.

Mobile processor cores are the most commonly used type of microprocessor in mobile devices and other small computing systems, but they have also been making their way into PCs with laptops that can switch between Intel Core processors for desktop use to AMD Ryzen CPUs when running on battery power. This enables manufacturers to offer a laptop with better CPU options at lower price points since both AMD and Intel produce low-powered chips primarily targeted towards laptops without integrated graphics capabilities even though these units are not as powerful or efficient as high-end models by either company. Desktop PC users should know this is possible because it's already happening: we've seen vendors like Acer release new products that come equipped with first-generation Ryzen Mobile processors instead of Intel ones.


Performance Microprocessors:

Performance microprocessors are chips that have high-performance requirements. They tend to be more expensive because they can process information faster and typically use higher quality components that last longer at a wider range of temperatures than cheaper models, though this is not always true. Performance Microprocessors are used in activities such as gaming, graphic design, or video editing among others.


On the basis of Application, the market is segmented into OMEs and Aftermarket. The microprocessors are used in various industries such as automotive, medical and mobile. Some of the important uses that have been mentioned below:

In the Automotive industry, it is mainly used for powering on/off devices connected to the vehicle’s electric system. The most common use being Headlamps and turn signals.

It also has an extensive application in Medical equipment where they can be found monitoring vital signs, oxygen saturation, or pressure readings from a bandage using sensors like ECG monitors, pulse oximeters, etc. They form a critical part of any Pacemaker device too besides their use by Hospital MRI machines for imaging purposes which require creating extremely strong magnetic fields with very high accuracy levels while running them at extremely high speed.

A growing application of Microprocessors is in the area of Mobile devices, where they are used for processing data from sensors on mobile phones or smartphones and running apps that use location information to provide navigation services with maps to users while simultaneously providing voice control via speech recognition systems such as Siri.


On the basis of Region, the market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Rest of the World. Europe is expected to be the largest and fastest-growing market owing to factors such as the presence of a large number of players, increasing penetration rates for high-performance notebooks and desktops PCs, increase in demand from emerging markets.

The North American region followed by the Rest of the World is forecasted to witness moderate growth over the forecast period due to favorable economic conditions. In terms of revenue share at the regional level, Asia Pacific is anticipated to grow at the highest CAGR during 2019-2028 due to rapid adoption in China & India coupled with low affordability levels driving consumers towards purchasing microprocessors that offer more performance than ARM processors used on mobile devices.


Growth Factors For The Global Microprocessor Market:

A number of factors are driving the growth in this market. Firstly, demand for smartphones is expected to grow exponentially by 2020 with over 200 million units being shipped. This will increase the usage and adoption rates of mobile microprocessors as they power these devices. Secondly, there has been an increasing need for performance chipsets used in high-end gaming PCs (e.g., desktop). The rising popularity of eSports and virtual reality games combined with a higher disposable income among gamers is fueling the demand for advanced hardware such as more powerful GPUs that use microprocessors from Intel or AMD brands based on x86 architecture. Gaming PC manufacturers have also started upgrading their products with processors using HBM memory technology which significantly enhances graphics processing capabilities.

Thirdly, microprocessors are also used in OMEs. The global market for CPUs is projected to grow at a CAGR of around 13% during the forecast period through 2028 owing to their increasing adoption by both end-users and OEMs across Asia Pacific regions such as China, Japan India, and South Korea. In Western Europe, North America, and Latin American regions there has been an increase in demand from low-end PC manufacturers which will drive the growth rate to 12%. Furthermore, these processors have increased power efficiency levels with Intel’s latest release of 14nm manufacturing process that reduces up to 45% of total energy consumed per CPU cycle when compared with the previous 22nm node.
