New Applications To Drive SoC Market CAGR to 7.0% by 2023, says Semico Research

The semiconductor industry has become adept at taking an already existing entity and breathing new life into it through innovation and new technologies - and recasting it into something much more vital and interesting. The System-on-a-Chip (SoC) market has become larger than the sum of its parts by helping to create whole new markets and applications. In this sense, the SoC has helped turn ideas into a marketable form by facilitating the marriage of functions and features once considered impossible to manufacture on a single monolithic die.

2019 Wafer Demand Forecast Lower than 2018's Increase of 5.8%, Says Semico Research

2018 was a good year for the semiconductor industry as manufacturers began rolling out new products targeted at artificial intelligence applications requiring both the most advanced technologies for AI training functions as well as potentially high-volume manufacturing capabilities for edge devices.

SoC Market to Approach $191 billion by 2023, says Semico Research

With the artificial intelligence trend emerging, the semiconductor market has gone from lamenting the lack of innovation and new applications to seeing an explosion of new possibilities opening before it. The short and long term impacts on SoC architectures, on the SIP market, on the software market, on design starts, on the EDA market, on market revenues and on unit volumes are going to be profound.

Automotive MOS Logic Units on Track to Grow 35% in 2018, Says Semico Research

Artificial intelligence in the IoT category-especially automotive, industrial and home automation-has helped boost semiconductor unit sales. Growth in these sectors, as well as in agriculture and smart cities, is expected to further expand semiconductor demand. A new research report from Semico Research, Semico Wafer Demand Update Q3 2018 (MA112-18), forecasts that Automotive MOS Logic units are on track to grow 35% in 2018.
 

Penetration of Worldwide Connected Vehicles to hit 92% by 2020, says Semico Research

Automotive electronics are a bright light for the semiconductor industry, and expectations for additional electronic applications in vehicles are high. The semiconductor industry is betting on the growth of key components in vehicles. There are a lot of innovative ideas within the automotive industry in several different areas. Cars and trucks are connecting to the cloud and to other vehicles. Cars will communicate with each other using short- and long-range communication chips.

In a Surprising Finding, Average SoC Design Cost Will Increase Only 1.7% by 2023, says Semico Research

It has been true for many years in the semiconductor industry that even very complex applications require a range of design solutions and do not always require the most expensive solution. While it is true that SoCs with the highest design costs probably contain the most complexity, it does not necessarily follow that every product in a given geometry must also incur the same high costs to be competitive. Silicon designers and system architects are constantly looking for ways to reduce their design costs and still meet market requirements and ASP targets.

Devices with Energy Harvesting Solutions to Grow 30.3% CAGR, says Semico Research

There is a large and growing energy harvesting market opportunity outside of large solar installations and commercial power generation. A broad range of markets will employ energy harvesting to either replace batteries or extend battery life. These applications cover wireless sensor nodes (WSN) for bridges, infrastructure, building automation and controls, and home automation (including lighting, security and environmental). Energy harvesting will grow in automotive applications, cell phones, wearables and other consumer electronics.

Automotive Semiconductors to Reach $73 Billion by 2023, says Semico Research

Automotive electronics are a bright light for the semiconductor industry, as smartphone growth slows, and personal computing growth continues to decline. The expectation is that automotive electronics will become the next big technology market driver. The automotive semiconductor market will exceed the overall industry growth as semiconductor content expands with added features and functionality. The desire to put self-driving vehicles on the road is creating increased interest in innovative automotive solutions as well as increased semiconductor demand.

Average Design Cost for Basic SoCs Across all Geometries was $1.7M in 2017, says Semico Research

The semiconductor industry today is faced with several substantial issues-not the least of which are the continuing rise in design costs for complex SoCs, the decrease in the incidence of first-time-right designs and the increase in the design cycle time against shrinking market windows and decreasing product life cycles. An additional factor has now been added to SoC design costs with the emergence of very complicated software applications intended to run on the SoC silicon.
