This annual research program is written for those making critical decisions regarding product, market, channel,and competitive strategy andtactics. This report is intended for senior decision-makers who are developing embedded technology, includingthose in the following roles:

  • CEO or other C-level executives
  • Corporate development and M&A teams
  • Marketing executives
  • Business development and sales leaders
  • Product development and product strategy leaders
  • Channel management and channel strategy leaders

Executive Summary

Embedded SoCs will continue to displace traditional standalone CPUs/MPUs, DSPs, GPUs, and other processor types as OEMs look to consolidate functionality and connectivity with fewer chips. Heterogeneous computing is redefining embedded processor markets and is changing the way processors are designed and deployedin various industry applications. The mobile phone market is the leading vertical in terms of revenue forembedded SoCs and mobile processors. However, higher-growth prospects are emerging in other areas as a result of the proliferation of M2M connectivity and rich graphical interfaces to supporthigh-value applications. As a result of the increasing competition in the embedded SoC market propelled by the growth of core IP licensing, software tooling and professional services will become more important tosuppliers to remain competitive.

Key Findings

  • Between 2012 and 2017, the total embedded market for SoCs will grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) in the low double-digits while the same market for mobile processors will grow at a rate in the highsingle digits for the same period.
  • ARM is the major architecture used in embedded SoCs, but Intel's new Atom and Quark SoCs and improved x86 microarchitectures should help the company penetratelow-power applications.
  • The vast majority of embedded processors will be sold to the Asia-Pacific region and unit shipment and revenue sharesfor the region are expected to increase during the forecast period.
  • Heterogeneous computing is changing the way in which vendors supply processors and accelerators to high-performance applications.
  • The increasing use of core IP licensing models will allow SoC manufacturers to save on R&D andexpand in other methods of differentiation such as software tooling.


Five-year forecast: SoCs are spreading across device types

The system-on-chip (SoC) processor market will grow at a CAGR of XX.X% from 2012 through 2017to reach approximately $XX.XB. Market revenues for 2012 reached more than$X.XB, with aboutthree-quarters of revenues coming from mobile phones, consumer electronics, and communications and networking equipment. SoCs are increasingly displacing traditional standalone processors in devices ranging from handheld mobile devices to large-scale communications infrastructures,particularly as various accelerators are embeddedwithin SoC configurationsto increase the performance of such processor types. Physical footprint and power consumption will also increase in importanceas the market braces for the upcoming wave of wearable technologies. Core IP has developed into an important differentiator for SoC designs, with SoC manufacturers integrating various technologies to maximize application performance, efficiency, and functionality.

The market for mobile processing platforms (MPPs), which includes CPUs/MPUs, DSPs, MCUs, and SoCs utilized in mobile designs, exceeded revenues of $XX.XB in 2012. The mobile processor market will grow at astrongfive-year CAGR of X.X% through 2017, at which point revenues will reach approximately $XX.XB. Mobile phones, tablets, and consumer electronics account for the vast majority of market revenues at a combined 90%. High consumer demand for mobile technology continues to drive the market for mobile processors, and the burgeoning wearable market will continue to support this rich demand.
