The memory market continues to drive semiconductor revenue and this trend is expected to continue near term. The market is expected to finish the year with a growth rate of 16 percent this year, which moves the market close to the $473 billion range worldwide.
The Databeans Semiconductor market tracker provides forecasts for all semiconductors which are segmented into product families including discretes, optoelectronics, sensors, analog ICs, logic, memory, microprocessors, microcontrollers and DSPs. Forecasts are provided by region, market segment, application area and product type. Market share is also provided by region and by product family.
The discretes market is expected drop to $21 billion this year for worldwide revenue. The power transistor market is pulling the market down due to oversupply and lower prices.
The Databeans Discretes Market 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 including TPD, RF, Zener diodes and power transistors IGBT, MOSFETS, bipolar, and RF. Market share is also provided by region, and major product category.
The power management market is expected to reach $30 billion in 2018, a marginal increase from 2017. This is due to slow demand in the discretes market which constitutes over 52 percent of revenue. However, the analog IC power market is expected to grow by 13 percent, reaching over $14 billion. Discretes include power transistors, rectifiers, and thyristors. Integrated circuits include regulators, battery management, supervisors, voltage regulators, and other power devices. Analog Power is driving growth in overall analog integrated circuit market and the overall semiconductor industry.
This tracker provides market forecasts for power management which includes Power Transistors, Rectifiers, Thyristors, Linear Regulators, Switching Regulators, Battery ICs, Supervisors, Voltage References, and Other Power. Forecasts are provided by region and by country for the Asia Pacific region. Forecasts are also provided by market segment, application, and by product type where there is a breakout for analog power products. Market share is also provided.
Along with other analog product markets, worldwide data converter revenue is expected to increase by 6percent this year and have a long term growth rate of 9 percent on average over the next 5 years. Data Converters are primarily used in medical imaging, automotive applications, industrial, and communications infrastructure. Products include Analog to Digital Converters (ADCs), Digital to Analog Converters (DACs) and other mixed signal which include analog switches, potentiometers, and mux products.
The Data Converter Market Tracker provides forecasts for data converters by region, market segment, application area, and by product type and architecture. Forecasts are also provided by speed and resolution. Market share is also provided.
