System on Module Market worth over $3bn by 2027

  • Published Date: October 4, 2021

System on module (SoM) Market size is set to surpass USD 3 billion by 2027, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.

Increasing demand for Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology based embedded systems in the entertainment industry will accelerate the market opportunities for SoM manufacturers. The rising integration of AI technology into surveillance cameras, inspection equipment, embedded vision systems, and a range of industrial & building automation HMI will propel market demand in the coming years. It offers high performance, improved connectivity, and low power consumption, which will foster the efficiency of face or object detection, 4K video playback, and image processing applications. Major players are engaged in accelerating the development of AI-integrated modules to gain a competitive edge over competitors.

Design-related problems connected with microsystems on modules are one of the key reasons restricting the market growth. These modules have a shorter life cycle than normal modules and are difficult to modify once they are manufactured. Furthermore, the micro SoM requires complex packaging and large-scale integration, increasing the entire production cost. Additionally, market participants are inclining toward the adoption of low-cost ARM-based architecture to overcome design challenges.

Rising acceptance of x86 processors in SoM for process automation in industrial sectors will fuel the market expansion
