According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Application Processor Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2019-2024”, the global application processor market size reached US$ 29.3 Billion in 2018. Application processors refer to the system on a chip (SoC) processors which are utilized for supporting the applications running on a mobile operating system. These processors may or may not be independent of other processors present in the mobile device. They offer a self-contained operating environment that assists in the delivery of all system capabilities. They are also required to support applications which may include graphics processing, along with memory and multimedia management. Several applications, with the help of these processors, can be easily run on various operating system environments, including iOS, Android, or Windows CE.
