The developing countries in the region such as India and China will be the major contributors of the market revenue from this region. The K-12 segment in these countries is in the initial stages of adopting the digital infrastructure, and this will drive the demand to provide students and instructors with the necessary devices to facilitate digital learning. Additionally, governments in the region are also implementing large-scale technology initiatives to boost the education sector towards technology-based learning, which will also aid in the rise in growth of the stick PC market in this region.

According to the stick PC market report, one of the key drivers for market growth will be low cost advantage of stick PCs. The market expectations are that the lower pricing of stick PCs will drive the volumes, which in turn, will help the manufacturers scale the production and reduce the cost in order to increase their profit margin. As the stick PC market is still in its initial stages of industry life cycle, the competition is low and price wars are negligible. This also means that the reducing ASPs will not have any influence on driving the volumes.

Stick PCs are integrated with processors and memory chips that have been scaled down for optimum performance and embedded multimedia card. The reducing node size of memory ICs from the semiconductor manufacturers will lead to an increased internal memory storage capacity of stick PCs. Further technological advancements in the semiconductor industry will fuel the miniaturization of semiconductor components, which will enable stick PCmanufacturers to save space on the printed circuit boards and integrated components, which will facilitate them to add more features to the stick PCs.
