Global Information would like to present a new market research report, "2010 Microprocessors" by Databeans.
Microprocessors are expected to remain a major piece of the semiconductor market with 14 percent of total revenue. Although 2009 was a difficult year for sales due to a weak PC market, 2010 will see a sales improvement of 12 percent.
The Microprocessor or "MPU" is a critical piece of many electronic systems that is designed to execute specific instructions. As such, it often forms the "brain" of computer and embedded systems. In 2010, Databeans estimates that microprocessors will reach approximately $37.2 billion in global revenue of the total projected $258.3 billion semiconductor market. Databeans expects that sales in MPUs will continue to grow an average of 8 percent annually until the segment reaches $54.4 billion in revenue by 2015.
