The power management market includes both discretes and integrated circuits. Discretes include power transistors, rectifiers, and thyristors. Integrated circuits include regulators, battery management, supervisors, voltage regulators, and other power devices. We have revised our forecast slightly upward, but still expecting the market to reach nearly $30 billion in 2017. This market is driving growth in overall analog integrated circuit demand as well is in the discrete market and the overall semiconductor industry.
This tracker provides market forecasts for power management which includes Power Transistors, Rectifiers, Thyristors, Linear Regulators, Switching Regulators, Battery ICs, Supervisors, Voltage References, and Other Power. Forecasts are provided by region and by country for the Asia Pacific region. Forecasts are also provided by market segment, application, and by product type where there is a breakout for analog power products. Market share is also provided.
The discretes market is expected to reach nearly $22 billion this year for worldwide revenue. All product segments are forecast to outperform the long term growth expected for total semiconductor sales with strong performance from diodes, power transistors, and rectifiers. This market contains these products as well as small signal transistors, thyristors, and other discretes.
The Databeans Discretes Market Tracker provides forecasts for discretes by region, market segment, application, and product type. The major categories listed above are also broken out further by product including TPD, RF, Zener diodes and power transistors IGBT, MOSFETS, bipolar, and RF. Market share is also provided by region, and major product category.
Along with other analog product markets, worldwide data converter revenue is expected to increase by 15 percent this and have a long term growth rate of 10 percent on average over the next 5 years. Data Converters are primarily used in medical imaging, automotive applications, industrial, and communications infrastructure. Products include Analog to Digital Converters (ADCs), Digital to Analog Converters (DACs) and other mixed signal which include analog switches, potentiometers, and mux products.
The Data Converter Market Tracker provides forecasts for data converters by region, market segment, application area, and by product type and architecture. Forecasts are also provided by speed and resolution. Market share is also provided.
Databeans has revised the worldwide revenue forecast for semiconductors in the medical application upward. In the 3rd quarter the expectation was 12 percent and now we are expecting 13 percent. The market for semiconductors used in medical applications continues to drive worldwide revenue for industrial semiconductors despite only constituting 12 percent of the $41 billion market. Leading edge technology for wearable device platforms is a growth driver along with rapid migration to smaller form factors for legacy electronics used in diagnosis, therapeutic, and home medical products.
The Databeans Medical Market Tracker provides forecasts for semiconductors used in medical applications including designs used in over the counter consumer devices, therapeutic, and imaging equipment. Forecasts are provided by region, segment, application, and by product type. All segments of the semiconductor market are included. Market share is also provided for the suppliers as well as the OEMs and their estimated spending on silicon.
