The tracker provides forecasts by region, application, and by product type with splits by resolution and type. Market share is also provided.
The discretes market is made of products including diodes, small signal transistors, power transistors (including modules), thyristors, rectifiers and other discretes. The market is estimated at $19.4 billion in 2016 and after a stronger than expected first quarter, worldwide revenue is expected to increase by 10 percent in 2017. Power transistors constitute the bulk of the revenue and is also driving growth long term.
This tracker provides forecasts for discretes by region, market segment, application, and product type. The major categories listed above are also broken out further by product. Market share is also provided by region, and major product category.
Like last year, the automotive semiconductor market is expected to perform well with estimated worldwide revenue predicted to reach over $31 billion. This market is increasing at an exponential rate so not surprisingly, we are seeing a lot of investment in this area by suppliers that were not typically focused on automotive as well as more intense strategic focus by suppliers that were already in this space. By 2022, the automotive semiconductor market is expected to grow to over $46 billion.
This tracker provides forecasts for each semiconductor family used in automotive designs. Forecasts are provided by region, application segment, application and by semiconductor product type. Market share for automotive electronics providers and semiconductor suppliers is included. Also included is spending estimates by automotive electronics provider.
Interface products include display interface, Ethernet, LVDS, PCI, PCIe, RS-232/422/485, UARTs, USB, and ESD protection devices. Combined the market is estimated at $4.8 billion and it is growing at a healthy 6 percent compound annual growth rate. Analog specific interface is expected to reach $2.2 billion this year.
This tracker provides subscribers with forecasts for interface by product type, region, application, and market segment. Market share is also provided for 2016 and 2015.
