Microcontroller revenue declined in 2015 due to weak demand of industrial and automotive electronics markets. Renesas retained the top spot, followed by NXP. Strong growth of 32-bit MCUs, due to smart cards and broad-based IoT applications, leads and exceeds the 8-bit MCU market for the first time.
