Digital Signal Processor Market - Regional Analysis, Emerging Brands to 2023


Digital Signal Processing (DSP) is used in most of the electronic devices by far and large. However, mobile phones account for the most significant application of DSP which is providing tremendous market traction to the DSP market.  Moreover, the growing applications of DSP in several other sectors such as consumer electronics, infrastructure, automotive navigation, and imaging systems is escalating the market on the global platform.

Acknowledging the pace at the DSP market is climbing up pervasively, Market Research Future (MRFR) in its recently published study report asserts that the global digital signal processor market will reach USD 16 BN by 2023, registering a striking CAGR of 12% throughout the forecasting period (2018 – 2023).

Some of the major growth drivers of DSP market include the high usage of DSP chip in the consumer electronics market, growing demand of digital signal processors in the automotive sector, and the rapidly advancing technology which is useful for DSP, and other surveillance equipment among others.

On the other hand, factors such as the high cost of instruments and complex designs are impeding the growth of the DSP market. Also, the growing demand for microprocessor enabled smartphones have restricted the uses of DSP in the mobile application market.

Nevertheless, growing application areas of DSP with the emergence of smart new devices are expected to support the growth of the DSP market over the assessment period.


The MRFR analysis is segmented into five key dynamics for enhanced understanding.

By Design Architecture: Standard DSP, and Embedded DSP (single-core DSP processor and multi-core DSP processor).

By Type: General Purpose DSP, Application Specific DSP, and Programmable (FPGA & PLD) DSP.

By ApplicationAudio Signal Processing, Audio & Video Compression, Speech Processing & Recognition, Digital Image Processing, and Radar Applications, among others.

By Industry: Consumer Electronics, Automotive, Healthcare, Military & Defense, and Telecommunication among others.

By Regions: North America, Europe, APAC, and the Rest-of-the-world (RoW).

Regional Analysis

The North American region dominates Digital Signal Processor Market with the largest market share. Therefore, the region also accounts for substantial growth in terms of revenue generation. Factors such as the broader applications of the digital signal processors in automotive, healthcare, and consumer electronics drive the regional DSP market.
