IoT Processor Market Segment Analysis - By Type

By Type, the IoT Processor Market Report is segmented into 8-bit, 16-bit, 32-bit and 64-bit. 64-bit type IoT processors are analysed to hold highest share and grow at highest CAGR of 7.5% during the forecast period 2021-2026 owing to their better performance offering as compared to other types. The first thing that comes to mind is the term bit is that it processes with its respective bits of the data bus. For instance, 8-bit processor works with 8 bits of data bus, which means this processor can move 8-bits of data in a particular time frame. Then there is a 16-bit processor and as the name implies, theoretically, it is two times faster than an 8-bits controller, and respectively others which are 32-bit and 64-bit. This suggests that a 64-bit processor can move more data in a particular time frame as compared to 8-bit and 16-bit, as 64K is larger than both 8 and 16. In many electronics, 32-bit processors are being used as it 64-bit processors entered in the market in recent years. For that reason, a 32-bit microcontroller can handle the quadruple amount of data as compared to the 8-bit and 16-bit processors which make the 32-bit microcontroller more data-efficient. But it makes the processor more power-hungry. According to the hardware’s structural form of a microcontroller, it is not true that the 32-bit microcontroller always comes in a larger package form. These big benefits to 32-bit processors is expected bring significant growth in its demand for IoT Processors Market in global market.
