Analog to Reach $61.9 Billion by 2015

Phoenix, Arizona October 4, 2011 - The semiconductor market may be experiencing a downturn, but that doesn't have to mean all news is bad news. Analog, within the Computing, Consumer, and Communications markets, will see some strong growth over the next few years, growing 13.8%, 8.6%, and 12.8% in 2011, 2012, and 2013 respectively. These numbers are pulled from our MAP Model database, Semico's way to track semiconductor migration within end-use markets. This method accounts for about 80% of the overall market. Our overall Analog numbers include the following categories: • Standard Linear • Amplifiers • Interface • Voltage Regulators and Reference Circuits • Data Conversion Circuits • Comparators • Application Specific Analog ICs (Small Scale Complexity) • Application Specific Analog ICs (Medium Scale Complexity) • Application Specific Analog ICs (Large Scale Complexity) All of these categories combined will reach $61.9 billion, a 7.9% increase over 2010's $42.4 billion. Breaking this number out farther, we can see that in 2010, the consumer market accounted for 33.3% of the Analog market, but in 2015, it will only account for 23.4%. Where is that Analog migrating? To smartphones. In fact, "High Performance Analog IC: The Catalyst for Electronic System Success," is the title of Jim Feldhan's speech for the annual Analog Semiconductor Leaders' Forum being held on October 13th, 2011 in South Korea. It is being held during i-SEDEX at the Korea International Exhibition Center. This Forum is the place to learn about high-performance analog trends. Semico sells subscriptions to our MAP Model, a database that contains Forecasts, BOMs, TAMs, and ASPs, and even Wafer Demand, across 30+ different end-use categories within Computing, Consumer, and Communications.
