Neuromorphic Chip Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2015 - 2023

ALBANY, New York -- According to a new market report published by Transparency Market Research "Neuromorphic Chip Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2015 - 2023" the neuromorphic chip market was valued at US$396.1 mn in 2014, which is expected to reach US$1,801.9 mn by 2023, growing at a CAGR of 19.1% from 2015 to 2023.

Neuromorphic chips are combination of digital and analog very large scale integration (VLSI) system and software, which execute neural systems models. This can be executed on hardware by threshold switches, transistors, and oxide based memristors. These are the electronic chips based on the concept of human brain and are made out of millions of neurons. These are small enough in size, so that it can be placed inside electronic devices and human body easily. Moreover, these chips are placed in one single micron of space which drives the miniaturization of integrated circuits. The increase in application wise penetration of miniaturization of integrated circuits has fuelled the demand for neuromorphic chips.

Logistics, 'aerospace and defense' and automotive are some of the sectors where neuromorphic chips are used for image recognition. Growing demand of artificial intelligence is also one of the major drivers for the neuromorphic chip market. Artificial intelligence is a machine learning technology that provides the skill to computers to learn with partial programming. This involves the advancement of computer programs which are competent of updating themselves when exposed to real time data. The artificial intelligence implements neuromorphic chips which help to carry out different operations in different ways. This means the artificial intelligence is likely to perform particular task in different ways instead of following one particular process. Thus evolution of artificial intelligence is also expected to increase the application scopes of neuromorphic chips during the forecast period.

Complexities in hardware designing of neuromorphic chips can be identified as one of the major restraining factors in this market. The complicated neuromorphic synapses are difficult to implement in overall established hardware chip design. The reason for this complexity is the intricate algorithm and space that is required to be implemented in the structured hardware. Another major complexity is the limitation in memory capacity of neuromorphic chips. With the technological advancements, impact of these restraining factors is expected to decrease during the forecast period.

Implementation of neuromorphic chips in new applications includes logistics and entertainment can be identified as major opportunity for the market. These chips are likely to be used in industrial and service robotics used in logistics to operate independently without human guidance.

Based on function, the market is segmented into signal processing, data processing, image recognition and others. The signal processing function of neuromorphic chip accounted for more than 30% share in 2014 because of the increasing application of these chips in different end use industries including automotive, aerospace and defense and industrial sectors.

On the basis of application, the neuromorphic chips market is segmented into defense and aerospace, automotive, medical, industrial and others. The industrial segment had the highest revenue share in 2014. Application of neuromorphic chips in the industrial segment includes advanced machine vision systems integrated with these chips, thus helping in inspection.

Based on geography, the neuromorphic chips market is segmented into four regions: North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Rest of the World (ROW). The North American neuromorphic chip market held the largest market share of in 2014 and is expected to retain its position during the forecast period. Growing demand for neuromorphic chips in the aerospace and defense sector is primarily driving the market in North America. Moreover, rising demand for neuromorphic chips that power the Internet of Things (IoT) is also driving the North American neuromorphic chip market.

The major players in the global neuromorphic chip market includes Intel Corp. (U.S), Qualcomm Inc.(U.S), International Business Machine Corporation (U.S), General Vision Inc.(U.S), Brain Corporation (U.S), HRL Laboratories LLC (U.S), Vicarious FPC Inc.(U.S), Lockheed Martin Corporation (U.S), Hewlett Packard Corp.(U.S) and Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. (South Korea) among others.
