The interface market is expected to post a modest recovery in 2016. Interface products include analog as well as digital interconnect devices that are used connect electronics. Standards and products include serial (RS-232, RS-422, RS-485), USB, PCI, display, LVDS, UARTs, Ethernet, and MODEMs. This tracker provides forecasts for the $4.7 billion interface market. Forecasts are provided by region, market segment, application, and product type. Market share is also provided for analog and digital interconnect by region. Worldwide market share is provided by product and standard.
The interface IC market is made up by analog and digital interconnect products. Products include RS-232, RS-422, RS-485, USB, PCI, PCIe, Firewire, Display, CAN, and LVDS for analog and Ethernet, UARTs, controllers and modems for digital interconnect. The analog interface market is expected to reach $2.1 billion this year with a growth rate of 6 percent while digital interconnect is expected to reach $2.3 billion with a growth rate of 5 percent. This tracker provides forecasts by region, market segment, application, and by product type. Market share is also provided.
The market for interface ICs is expected to reach $4.6 billion this year which is the same as it was in 2014. Analog interface makes up $2 billion of this market. While unit shipments have grown significantly this year, eroding ASPs has put the brakes on revenue growth, particularly in the analog IC market. This tracker provides revenue and shipment forecasts for interface ICs including RS-232, RS-422 and RS-485, USB, PCIe and PCI, Firewire, Display, CAN, LVDS, Ethernet, UARTs, and other digital interconnect. Forecasts are provided by region, application market, and by product type. Market share is also provided.
The interface market includes analog and digital interconnect. This market is expected to remain relatively flat this year compared to 2014. Analog product revenue is expected to remain at around $2 billion while the digital interconnect market will continue to be effected by the lack luster computer market and contract by 3 percent dropping to $2.1 billion. This tracker provides forecasts for USB, serial interface, display, and industrial interface devices. Also included are forecasts for Ethernet, UARTs and other digital interface products. Market share is also provided by region. New to the tracker includes market share for Ethernet, UARTs and wired modems.
