The timing devices market is shifting from traditional clock generation technology to CMOS. ICs used in timing which include PLLs, distribution, and synchronization ICs are also gaining share due to demand for embedded processing in all segments of the market. This year, Databeans projects that the market for timing devices which includes crystal clocks and integrated circuits is expected to reach a high of $4 billion, an 8 percent increase in worldwide revenue over 2014. This market tracker provides subscribers with forecasts for timing devices by region, application market and product type. Market share is also provided for crystal clock suppliers as well as the suppliers of clock related ICs.
Timing is important in all electronic applications. ICs are quickly eating away at the traditional crystal oscillator market and that has provided a needed drive in demand for semiconductor solutions in this space. This tracker covers both crystal oscillators and timing ICs, which include PLLs, synthesizers, and clock distribution ICs. Also covered are the replacement technologies which include CMOS and MEMs devices. Forecasts are provided by region, market segment, and product type. Market share is also provided for silicon providers as well as the crystal oscillator suppliers.
The timing devices product category includes XO, VCXO, TCXO, and OCXO quartz crystal devices as well as integrated circuits, and MEMs timing device technology. Databeans does not include ceramic or MHz XTAL or KHz XTAL in this model. The most influential trend in this market is the transition from applications relying on an XO device to silicon. In 2014, the CMOS oscillator and MEMs resonator share of the XO market reached a high of 19 percent. Share is expected to explode to close to 60 percent in the next few years. This tracker provides forecasts for timing devices by region, application market, and product type. Market share is also provided.
The timing devices product category includes XO, VCXO, TCXO, and OCXO quartz crystal devices as well as integrated circuits, and MEMs timing device technology. The crystal oscillator plays an important role in electronics design; however, there is a growing trend to replace this older technology with CMOS oscillators and MEMs devices. Other timing integrated circuits include PLLs, clock synthesizers, clock synchronization devices, and clock distribution devices. Clock distribution includes buffers, muxes, multipliers and dividers. This tracker provides revenue and units shipments by region, application market, and product category. Market Share is also provided.
