FPGA Unit Shipments Projected to Grow 14.4% through 2021, Says Semico Research

The ASIC design starts market continues to evolve with changes in the end-use markets.  In terms of unit growth rates the Communications segment is now third behind Industrial and Consumer. The communications segment will have the most number of design starts over the next 5 years while automotive will have the highest growth rate of all the segments.  However Industrial, while a very fragmented market, will have a higher number of design starts than automotive driven by Smart Grid applications along with a renewed growth in factory automation applications.

Wafer Demand up over 10% in 2017 Despite Higher Wafer Prices, Says Semico Research

The continuation of new product development in the IoT category such as automotive, industrial and home automation has helped boost semiconductor unit sales in 2017.

Analog Market Revenue Growth Hits Double Digits in 2017, Says Semico Research

As electronic systems evolved to mobile devices, the importance of analog products has grown. Interfacing with the real world via cameras, touch, gesture controls, audio and video applications all require RF (radio frequency) analog functionality. In addition, power management ICs are critical to the success of these devices to reduce the power drain on the battery. These growing applications have added significant volumes to the analog unit sales.

Analog Market Update: Making Digital Systems Come Alive (2017)

Analog ICs are critical to nearly all electronic devices.  The global electronics market will consume over 150 billion analog ICs in 2017. This translates to several analog ICs per electronic device.  While analog ICs are essential to electronic systems, average selling prices have been dropping and will only command a modest $0.344 in 2017.

Worldwide ASIC Unit CAGR to reach 10.1% from 2016-2021, Says Semico Research

Many of the traditional end-use applications are experiencing slower semiconductor unit growth rates due to market saturation and reduced demand.  In addition, growth rates are more moderate when the sheer volumes of a market reach levels that make it difficult to continue experiencing double-digit growth rates.  While there are new applications such as those associated with the IoT (Internet of Things) and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) which are expected to follow a higher growth curve over the next few years, in general, growth rates for traditional markets such as PCs and cell
