Analogue growth beats total semiconductor market

According to the latest data from Semico Research, the global electronics market this year will consume more than 121 billion analogue ICs, which are essential to nearly all electronic devices. This equates to several analogue ICs per electronic device, noted the market research company.

Analogue ICs experienced stronger than average growth over the last several years as the mobility product segment grew at double digit rates. These products have a higher than average analogue content, thus growth has exceeded the overall semiconductor market. However, this appears to be changing as the markets for end applications such as smartphones and tablets are now growing at a slower rate as these markets saturate and replacements become the growth driver.

"The Internet of Things presents a great growth potential for analogue and sensors, but large volumes for that market are still a few years away," said Jim Feldhan, president of Semico Research. "Consequently, we are seeing an inflection point in the analogue market. Over the next five years, analogue sales growth will slow to a CAGR of 4.4 per cent in dollar terms and 5.3 per cent in unit terms."
