The MPEG video SoC market hit over 650 million units in 2009, reports In-Stat. This was achieved because of the growth in shipments of consumer video products including digital STBs, DTVs and Blu-ray players.

"Overall, In-Stat projects the MPEG IC revenue in consumer electronics will grow to $4.5 billion by 2014," says Michelle Abraham, principal analyst, In-Stat. "However, the current market is seeing several acquisitions play out, as well as a competitive shift among players as specific MPEG IC segments mature while others emerge."

In-Stat also reports that Renesas (formerly NEC) led the market in Blu-ray MPEG SoCs in 2009. ST Microelectronics had above 60 percent share in the H.264 decoder SoC market for terrestrial STBs. For MPEG-4 SoCs for mobile CE applications, the leader was Zoran.

The analyst forecasts that in 2010, worldwide H.264 chip unit shipments will increase by 51 percent over 2009.
