While the overall market for semiconductors is expected to remain fairly flat with values in 2015, the consumer segment is expected to grow slightly higher. The consumer audio market is expected to grow by 6 percent this year and consumer applications outside of A/V is expected to grow by 3 percent. The video market is expected to contract, however, pulling the market down to a minimal growth of 2 percent predicted for this year. This tracker forecasts for the semiconductors used in consumer applications including audio, video, white goods, and other consumer electronics. Forecasts are provided by segment and by region and product. Market share is also provided for the suppliers as well as the OEMs by application market. Semiconductor spending is also estimated for the manufacturers of consumer goods.
The market for consumer electronics is expected to continue to underperform other electronics markets, however, there are certain segments that are expected to do well this year, including the television segment and appliances. The semiconductor market serving these applications is expected to remain flat with worldwide revenue predicted at close to $60 billion for 2016. This tracker provides forecasts for semiconductors used in consumer electronics. Forecasts are provided by region, market segment, application, and by product type. Market share for semiconductors and the applications is provided. Spending on semiconductors by the major consumer electronics manufacturers is also estimated.
The semiconductor market for consumer applications is expected to reach $62.3 billion this year. That is an estimated 6 percent increase from 2015. Both the audio video application market and the automotive market is driving this growth. This tracker provides forecasts for semiconductors used in consumer applications such as televisions and car stereos. Forecasts are provided by region, by application market, and by application. Forecasts are also provided by product for each semiconductor product family. Market share is also included for the semiconductor suppliers, the OEMs, and the OEM spending on semiconductors is estimated.
The market for semiconductors used in building today’s popular consumer electronics is expected to reach close to $60 billion this year. Demand for the latest electronics is driving this market at a compound annual growth rate of 8 percent. Along with traditional consumer applications such as televisions, set-top-boxes, and home appliances, consumer applications are also found in the computer and automotive markets. This tracker provides forecasts on all of these market segments and the applications included in each. Semiconductor functional categories include audio, video, and other consumer. All semiconductor product families are tracked with forecasts by region and by product type. Market share is also provided for the semiconductor suppliers as well as the OEMs building the applications. Estimates for semiconductor spending by these OEMs is also included.
