Q4 2017 Wireless Market Tracker

Semiconductor revenue from the wireless application market is expected to reach $118 billion this year, which is a 10 percent increase from last year. Lackluster performance in the mobile processor market has been offset by growth in memory revenue due to higher prices for Flash. Other strong revenue markets this year will be in short range wireless applications. This tracker provides forecasts for semiconductors used in wireless applications which includes mobile phones, wireless infrastructure, and short range wireless applications. Forecasts are provided by region, segment, and by product type. Market share is also provided for both the semiconductor suppliers as well as the OEMs. OEM spending on wireless products is also provided.

Q3 2017 Wireless Market Tracker

Semiconductor revenue from the wireless application market is expected to reach $122 billion this year, which is a 10 percent increase from last year. Lackluster performance in the mobile processor market has been offset by growth in memory due to higher prices. Other strong revenue growth product markets this year will be optoelectronics, sensors, and analog. This tracker provides forecasts for semiconductors used in wireless applications which includes mobile phones, wireless infrastructure, and short range wireless applications. Forecasts are provided by region, segment, and by product type. Market share is also provided for both the semiconductor suppliers as well as the OEMs. OEM spending on wireless products is also provided.

Q3 2016 Wireless Market Tracker

The wireless market is expected to contract by 6 percent this year with worldwide revenue predicted at $107 billion. Because this segment of the semiconductor market is so large, this market is pulling down the overall semiconductor industry. Wireless semiconductors constitute 32 percent of the overall market. In 2017, the market is expected to recover and reach $124 billion. This tracker provides forecasts for semiconductors used in the wireless market which includes mobile phones, wireless infrastructure, and short range wireless applications. Forecasts are provided by region, segment, and by product type. Market share is also provided.

Q2 2016 Wireless Market Tracker

The wireless application market covers semiconductor revenue for mobile phones, wireless infrastructure, short range wireless, and other wireless applications. The market is expected to contract slightly this year and is estimated at $108 billion. The application processor segment of the wireless industry constitutes around 22 percent of overall wireless revenue. Due to increasing competition for Qualcomm from MediaTek, margins are shrinking in this space and overall revenue is expected to decline this year by 4 percent. This tracker provides forecasts for semiconductors used in wireless applications. Forecasts are provided by region, application segment, and by product type. Market share is also provided for the semiconductor suppliers as well as the OEMs. OEM spending is also estimated by application segment.
