Virtual Reality Headset Shipments to Grow 53% by 2021, says Semico Research

The 2016 holiday season brought virtual reality to the masses.  Shoppers were treated to a variety of options, from $20 smartphone headsets at discount stores, to high-end gaming headsets costing hundreds of dollars from Sony, Oculus Rift and HTC.  Even so, this technology is still developing, and a huge market will not materialize overnight.  A new research report from Semico, Our Future Reality is Virtual, forecasts that VR headsets will grow at a 53% CAGR from 2016 to 2021.

Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) Will Be Major Component of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, says Semico Research

Traditionally, the Industrial sector has represented only a small portion of total semiconductor sales.  According to SIA/WSTS End Use data, semiconductor sales to the Industrial market comprise only 12% of total semiconductor revenues.  In addition, the Industrial sector traditionally grows at a comparably slow, steady rate.  From 2010 to 2015, the Industrial sector experienced a 4.8% CAGR from $31.9 billion to $40.3 billion.  But all that may change.  Many futurists are espousing a worldwide transition into the Fourth Industrial Revolution.  A new report from Semico Research,

ADS Processor Royalty TAM to Make Up Over Half the Automotive Market by 2020, says Semico Research

As the semiconductor industry matures, market growth rates have slowed from historic double-digit rates to single-digit compound annual growth rates (CAGR). The overall semiconductor market will grow at a CAGR of 3% over the next 5 years. This trend is anticipated to continue through the next ten-year period as well.  One segment of the market that will exceed the expected industry growth is Automotive.

Semiconductor IP Market to Exceed $8 Billion by 2020, According to Semico Research

One of the mainstays of the System-on-a-Chip (SoC) market is the continued growth of the 3rd Party Semiconductor Intellectual Property (SIP) market.  The products developed and marketed by the SIP market enable SoC designers to create amazing cutting-edge silicon solutions employed in every niche of today’s semiconductor market.

2016 Wafer Demand Grows While Semiconductor Chip Revenue declines, Says Semico Research

Total wafer demand is expected to return to historical growth rates over the next five years. However, what is uncharacteristic of the past is the wide range of decline and growth that will be logged by specific product categories and technologies.

Do Chip Designers Worry About the Impact of Power Consumption on Sustainability? Sonics and Semico Team Up for Power Management Best Practices Survey

Sonics, Inc. and Semico Research Corporation have launched the “On-Chip Power Management Best Practices” survey. The purpose of this industry survey is to understand how chip designers are managing power consumption and contrast that with expected future best practices. The companies will publish results of the survey on their web sites in the fall of 2016.

Silicon Wafer Demand to Grow 7.4% by 2020, says Semico Research

Silicon wafers are the basic building block for the semiconductors used for the smallest sensor in a light bulb to the most advanced electronic system in the space shuttle.  It all starts from semiconductor grade polysilicon and is processed precisely to fit the needs of each application.  One of the main concerns is whether existing silicon wafer manufacturers can adequately supply 200mm and 300mm wafers to support expected demand from IoT-related devices.  There are only a handful of wafer manufacturers in the industry today.  New research from Semico,
