Global Real-time Clock (RTC) IC Market: Introduction

Transparency Market Research delivers key insights on the global real-time clock (RTC) IC market. In terms of revenue, the global real-time clock IC market is estimated to expand at a CAGR of ~4% during the forecast period, owing to numerous factors, regarding which, TMR offers thorough insights and forecasts in its report on the global real-time clock IC market.

A real-time clock IC is a type of IC that works as a clock in various devices. Real-time clock ICs offer the time in terms of year (including leap year), months, days, hours, minutes, and seconds. These ICs are available in 12-hour and 24-hour time formats, with an AM/PM display. Real-time clock ICs are low-current devices that can sustain for years on a single lithium cell. RTC ICs run on a lithium cell that keeps a track of the time even if it is disconnected from the main power. For example, IC DS1307 by Maxim Integrated offers time in terms of decade (around 17 years). RTC ICs are used in several applications such as wearable devices, computers, IoT (Internet of Things) devices, digital cameras, battery management units, and vehicle dashboards. In the healthcare sector, real-time clock ICs are applied in fitness bands, medicine dispensers, glucometers, and other devices that need to keep a track of time.

Major Key Players of the Real-time Clock (RTC) IC Market are:

Maxim Integrated Products, Inc., Seiko Epson Corp., Integrated Device Technology, Inc., STMicroelectronics International N.V., Microchip Technology Inc., NXP Semiconductors N.V., Diodes Incorporated, Texas Instruments Incorporated, Ricoh Semiconductor, Abracon LLC, ROHM CO., LTD, Cypress Semiconductor Corporation, and ABLIC Inc.

In this report, TMR proposes that, real-time clock ICs are estimated to witness technological advancements in the near future. Rising demand for standalone real-time clock ICs for use in low-power IoT devices is the key factor driving the demand for real-time clock ICs across the globe. Also, technological advancements in real-time clock ICs are expected to drive the global real-time clock IC market from 2019 to 2027. Over the last few years, the consumer electronics industry in prominent countries of Asia Pacific and North America has witnessed significant demand for real-time clock ICs. Tear-time clock IC market players are introducing advanced ICs that are suitable for use in automotive, healthcare and industrial applications. In addition to this, increasing demand in the healthcare sector for use in patient-monitoring devices and fitness bands is expected to further drive the global real-time clock IC market during the forecast period. However, limitations in terms of accuracy in timekeeping are likely to adversely impact the global real-time clock IC market in the next few years.

Global Real-time Clock IC Market: Key Developments

Key manufacturers operating in the global real-time clock IC market, such as Seiko Epson Corp. and STMicroelectronics, are increasing their sales by increasing their production capacity. Some of the key developments in the global RTC IC market are as follows:

  • In March 2018, Seiko Epson Corp. launched RA8804CE and RX8804CE, two new modules of real-time clock ICs. These modules have integral temperature compensated crystal oscillators. RA8804CE is designed for use in automotive applications, whereas, RX8804CE is meant for industrial applications.
  • In December 2018, STMicroelectronics announced to add STM32GO microcontrollers (MCUs) to its STM32 family. The new series is based on Arm Cortex-M0+ core, which ensures high performance of the device. This device draws as low as 3 – 8 µA of electric current in the stop mode with the real-time clock running, and just 500 nA of electric current in the standby mode with RTC (all at 3.0 V, 25°C).
