Emerging Technologies in Electronic Components and Systems (ECS) - Opportunities Ahead

This study presents a roadmap of the emerging technologies impacting the global electronic value chain. It also identifies the main emerging Micro-Nano Electronics (MNE), Smart Systems and Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) technologies and forecasts their economic impact in short and midterm on the different end-user segments. It assesses which of these technologies are the most critical technologies for the EU and are therefore suggested to be supported by the European Commission and the follow-up Joint Undertaking in the context of Horizon Europe.
