Rugged IC Market: Key Drivers, Trends, and Challenges
The adoption of ruggedized computers in defense applications is notably driving the rugged IC market growth, although factors such as the declining price of commercial consumer-grade devices may impede the market growth. Our research analysts have studied the historical data and deduced the key market drivers and the COVID-19 pandemic impact on the rugged IC industry. The holistic analysis of the drivers will help in deducing end goals and refining marketing strategies to gain a competitive edge.
Key Rugged IC Market Driver
One of the key factors driving the rugged IC market is the adoption of ruggedized computers in defense applications. The increasing demand for ruggedized computers and embedded boards used in robots for mission-critical applications in the defense sector is driving the market growth. Recent application areas wherein ruggedized computers are being used include logistics and cargo transportation, maintenance of vehicles and machinery, and the medical device industry. Moreover, any rugged system or solution design begins with a need for industrial-grade components that must meet stringent requirements in terms of extended temperature operation, vendor selection, ruggedness specifications, reliability, and durability. For instance, in 2017, JLT Mobile Computers, a leading supplier of reliable computers for demanding environments, announced the addition of fully-rugged mobile Android devices for field workers in logistics, warehousing, transportation, and other similarly challenging operating environments. The company had introduced the JLT MT3007A 7-inch tablet features a high-performance Qualcomm® Snapdragon? 660 Octa-core processor behind a user-friendly Android 9.0 interface. Standalone boards can be integrated into numerous laser weapons, and ruggedized computers, among others, driving the growth of the global rugged IC market.
Key Rugged IC Market Trend
The growth of rugged IoT is another factor supporting the rugged IC market growth in the forecast period. Technavio considers the deployment of IoT in the industrial sector as a major driver for the global rugged IC market. Moreover, IoT is being deployed across several industries by integrating sensors with different types of manufacturing equipment deployed in manufacturing and production plants. Furthermore, industry 4.0 is the current trend of data exchange and automation in manufacturing technologies, which includes cyber-physical systems, IoT, cloud computing, and cognitive computing. Besides, vendors are looking to enhance products that are embedded with IoT. For instance, ADL Embedded Solutions' rugged, palm-sized PC is embedded in IoT solutions. Similarly, this development shifted the focus of other vendors in the market on the growing demand for IoT-equipped rugged devices with a compact IC. The packaging of ICs impacts the design of the devices. These ICs can be tiny, and they can hence be soldered together on the circuit board. This will make the device small and flat. This also makes rugged devices compact. Therefore, the increasing demand for compact, rugged devices will increase the sales of rugged ICs for IoT.
Key Rugged IC Market Challenge
The declining price of commercial consumer-grade devices will be a major challenge for the rugged IC market during the forecast period. The sales of commercial consumer-grade devices are high owing to a large customer base compared to fully rugged devices, which are used only for specific applications with a small customer base. Due to this, commercial-grade device manufacturers achieve economies of scale, which results in reduced cost and selling price of commercial-grade devices, compared with the selling price of rugged devices. With the increasing price gap between both types of devices, end-users are inclined toward consumer-grade devices. Moreover, rugged device vendors are also forced to reduce the price of their offerings by lowering their profit margins, therefore, increasing bargaining from suppliers and adopting cost-effective production and product delivery techniques. This, in turn, decreases the shipment of rugged ICs and hinders the growth of the global rugged IC market.
This rugged IC market analysis report also provides detailed information on other upcoming trends and challenges that will have a far-reaching effect on the market growth. The actionable insights on the trends and challenges will help companies evaluate and develop growth strategies for 2021-2025.

COVID Impact and Recovery Analysis
The disruptions to supply chains, delays in production, and the negative impact on the lighting industry caused by the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic in early 2020 affected the rugged IC sector adversely. The pandemic, which brought construction activities to a halt, also led to a downturn in the building sector, in turn resulting in a slump in demand for lighting products. All industrial units were closed for a significant time in the US. In addition, because of the reduced budget outlays for setting up a new factory or industrial spaces, the downturn in the retail, manufacturing, and other sectors contributed to a decline in demand for rugged IC.
