Digital Market

 

Q1 2018 Digital Market Tracker

The digital market includes processors, logic, and memory devices. This market overall is expected to increase by 16 percent this year in terms of revenue and is responsible for the strong double digit growth for the overall semiconductor industry last year when the market was up over 27 percent. The main driver is DRAM which is not in high demand, but pricing has increased dramatically in 2017. Other memory device prices have also risen. Microprocessor revenue is expected to only increase by 5 percent this year as sluggish demand in the wireless and computing segment continues. The Digital Market Tracker provides forecasts for each of the digital IC markets. Forecasts are provided by product family by region, market segment, application market, and by product type. Market share is also provided.

Q4 2017 Digital Market Tracker

The digital market includes processors, logic, and memory devices. This market overall is expected to increase by 22 percent this year in terms of revenue and is responsible for the strong double digit growth for the overall semiconductor industry. The main driver is DRAM which is not in high demand, but pricing has increased dramatically this year. Other memory device prices have also risen. Microprocessor revenue is expected to decrease by 4 percent this year as sluggish demand in the wireless and computing segment continues. The Digital Market Tracker provides forecasts for each of the digital IC markets. Forecasts are provided by product family by region, market segment, application market, and by product type. Market share is also provided.

Q3 2016 Digital Market Tracker

The digital market includes processors, logic, and memory devices. This market overall is expected to drop by 1 percent this year to $225 billion. The wireless application processor market, display logic, and DRAM are driving the market down. Microprocessors are expected to remain flat this year. Other markets in the digital IC space are performing well, including microcontrollers, DSP, and PLDs. This tracker provides forecasts for each of the digital IC markets. Forecasts are provided by product family by region, market segment, application market, and by product type. Market share is also provided.

Q2 2016 Digital Market Tracker

Digital semiconductors include microprocessors, DSP, microcontrollers, logic, and memory. Combined sales of these product families constitute 67 percent of the semiconductor market. This year, due to a slowdown in smartphone demand which began in 2015, shipments for application processors and memory are expected to pull down the overall semiconductor market. While demand is strong in emerging markets, the overall market remains stagnant as the replacement cycle runs its course through the end of 2016 when volume is expected to pick up again. This tracker provides forecasts for microprocessors, logic, and memory by region, market segment, application market, and by product type. Market share is also provided.
