Medical devices, such as digital X-ray machine, ultrasound system, surgical robots, and CT-scanners, are incorporated with SBCs. The SBC offers several intuitive features such as multiple Input/Output (I/O) functions, low power consumption, high precision, and accuracy with compact device footprint in the market. The proliferation of IoT & AI technologies in medical devices will foster the market expansion during the forecast timeline.

The COVID-19 pandemic adversely affected the single board computer market in early 2020. In the first half of 2020, several governments and regulatory bodies-imposed trade restrictions and lockdowns, which resulted in raw material & component supply chain disruptions. The industry growth for SBCs also decreased in automotive, consumer electronics, and home appliances sectors owing to the shutdown of manufacturing plants worldwide. However, the growing Work-From-Home (WFH) trend across IT enterprises has spiked the industry demand for low-cost PCs and workstations that are incorporating SBCs, thereby positively supporting the industry expansion during the pandemic.

Technological advancements in x86-based processors will spur the single board computer market value

The x86 segment captured USD 650 million in 2021 and is anticipated to witness 13.5% growth rate through 2028. This growth can be attributed to the several advantages offered by x86 processors such as supports multitasking, fast clock-time generation, high-speed data processing, and high scalability. These advantages have prompted its acceptance in several industrial applications such as automation systems, computers, and robotics. In addition, the proliferation of IoT & AI technologies in transportation, entertainment, and medical & healthcare sectors is driving the market demand for advanced SBCs.

Several market participants are upgrading their existing processor technologies to scale up the SBC performance. For instance, in January 2022, AMD launched its new Ryzen 6000 series of processors to support high-speed computing in laptops. This processor is based on x86 architecture, which supports Windows 11 security features. The company is aiming to supply this new processor to electronic manufacturers that are located in east Asian countries, such as Taiwan, South Korea, and India, to accelerate its integration into new gen laptops.
