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.

ASIC Design Starts 2017: Consumer and Industrial Lead the Way

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
