Single Board Computer (SBC) Market worth over $3bn by 2028

  • Published Date: March 22, 2022

Single Board Computer Market size is set to surpass USD 3 billion by 2028, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.

The market growth is driven by the rising demand for smart IoT-powered devices & equipment from the agriculture sector, which is adopting automated machinery, Global Positioning System (GPS) & Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) solutions, and field mapping & soil sampling devices to increase productivity. These devices are integrated with IoT-enabled SBCs, allowing farmers to monitor real-time operations and health conditions of equipment from remote locations. The rising adoption of drone surveillance systems to ensure continuous farm safety from unwanted animals, insects, and birds will also propel the market expansion. Several regional governments and universities are integrating drones for use in agriculture monitoring and forest restoration applications.

Technical issues associated with SBCs, such as inefficient cooling, difficulty in upgrading processors, and increased complexity, are impeding market revenue. SBC design architecture is becoming more complicated due to the expanding trend of developing compact & miniaturized SBCs. This will intensify efforts in the coming years to replace components with cutting-edge technologies. Additionally, the increasing demand for multicore SBCs in a variety of industrial automation applications will affect the acceptance of conventional computers, thereby limiting the industry growth during the forecast period.

Ongoing technological advancements in ARM-based processors will spur the market demand
