SSC Integrated Circuits (ICs) and sensor communication ICs act as an interface between sensor element (temperature sensor, optical sensors and other sensors) and remote data collection point. SSC ICs accepts analog signal from the external sensors and amplifies the signal and converting it into digital signal through an analog-to-digital (ADC) converter and sends it to sensor communication ICs. The communication ICs then forward the digital signal to remote data collection point for monitoring and control of the signal. SSC ICs have in-built non-volatile memory storage.
In automotive sector, SSC ICs are used in advanced driver assisted system (ADAS), measurement of vehicle acceleration among others. Rising demand for ADAS system such as advanced braking systems (Anti-Lock Braking System), steering systems, airbag, etc. will increase the demand for SSC ICs. Automotive industry is developing partnership with SSC IC markets to increase semiconductor usage in cars which will alternatively increase the demand for application market of SSC ICs.
SSC ICs have low power which increases battery life of consumer wearable devices. Rising demand for wearable consumer electronic devices such as smart watches, health tracker among others will increase demand for SSC ICs. SSC ICs are used in humidity sensors which are used in weather forecasting, agriculture, green house etc. Humidity sensors which are used to measure moisture content are used in wireless sensor networks (WSN) for agriculture applications. Rising demand for humidity sensors will alternatively increase demand for SSC ICs.
SSC ICs are also used in medical equipment such as electrocardiogram (ECG), strain gauges load cell which are used to convert force or pressure into electrical signal, pressure sensors, transducers, transmitters, pressure calibrators and controllers, resistive element sensors, factory automation among others. Rising demand for weighing instruments using load cells, medical equipment, etc. will alternatively increase the demand for SSC ICs. Developing SSC ICs for automotive customers is a challenge due to stringent functional safety norms.

Signal sensing is done by analog-front end (AFE) of a SSC IC. Marketing of SSC ICs depend on differentiation of analog-front end (AFE) which is difficult. Rising demand for Internet of Things (IoT) will present a huge opportunity for SSC IC suppliers. The IoT contains large number of sensors to detecting real world. Signals received from sensors need to be conditioned which is a critical part to enable IoT. The IoT sensor nodes contain SSC ICs which must work autonomously, uninterrupted without external power source for a decade for growth of IoT.
The market when segmented by type which includes Capacitive SSC, Magneto-resistive SSC, Resistive SSC, Thermocouple SSC and other SSCs. By end use the market is segmented into automotive, consumer electronics, agriculture equipment, medical imaging, automation and other segments. Resistive SSC ICs have a major share in the SSC IC market.

Geographically the market is segmented into Europe, North America, Asia Pacific (APAC), Latin America and Middle East & Africa (MEA). North America is the largest automotive market in terms of revenue. Demand for light weight vehicles is growing more in APAC than in North America and Europe due to growing automobile production in emerging economies of China, Korea, India, among others. North America is a major market for ADAS. In APAC China is the largest automotive market. APAC is the largest consumer electronics market due to strong demand in smartphones, tablets LCD/ LED TVs and other consumer electronic goods due to extended battery life, reduction in system noise, among others.
