The processor acts as a heart of any electronic devices that may be integrated into a separate computer chip or be the main cell phone chip whichprovides instructions from the software applications within it. A faster processor permits applications to perform faster. The speed of a processor is calculated in GHz or MHz Moreover, in recent days, smartphones consist of different graphics processor which controls the speed of visual elements, particularly with games and different other complex animations. A smartphones processor is a chip that is specially designed to support all applications which are running in the phone’s operating system. The processor of a mobile imparts a self contained operating environment which offers system capabilities to support applications including graphics processing, memory management and multimedia. Some leading vendors create their own smartphone application processors. Other vendors buy their smartphone application processors and use them as original equipment manufacturer or OEM components. For example, Qualcomm Snapdragon mobile application processor is used in many Android smartphones to run the mobile’s operating system and other smartphone applications. In recent days, wide use of processors in high and low-end smartphones, makes the Handheld Device Processors market demanding during the projection period of 2017-2025.
Nowadays, the smartphone processor has become more important on the present smartphone hardware’s specification sheet. Rising number of smartphone manufacturing companies across the globe, creates a high demand of this market. Moreover, increasing smartphone penetration in developing countries further propels the growth of smartphone application processors market. Rising number of smartphone users around the globe, further creates a high demand and huge growth opportunity of this market. The rising adoption of smartphones among young generation makes the market more demanding. Further down, continuous innovation in technology made by the key vendors, thereby leads to a high market growth opportunity for Handheld Device Processors over the next eight years.
Based on application, the Handheld Device Processors market has been segmented as smartphones, tablets, gaming consoles, automotive navigation devices and others. The market has been further segmented by type which includes integrated processors, stand-alone processors, 32-bit processor and 64-bit processor. The globalHandheld Device Processors market has been moreover segmented geographically into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle East and Africa and Latin America.
Technological advancement and creativity by leading vendors has made the market more demanding across the globe. Rising adoption of faster processors by major smartphone manufacturing companies for better performance of their product, makes the Handheld Device Processors market more demanding. Additionally, while Qualcomm and MediaTek rule the high-end and mid-range smartphones market, Chinese chipset dealer Spreadtrum is acquiring the lower-end smartphones market owing to its low-grade device platforms. However, due to high-demand of mid-range devices, it is expected that MediaTek will retain its position and be the key chipset supplier in the nearby future.
Some of the major players in the global Handheld Device Processors market are Qualcomm, MediaTek Inc., Apple Inc., Intel Corporation, Vivante Corporation and few others.
