Research and Markets: Analog Market Tracker - 4% Revenue Growth Expected

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Analog Market Tracker" subscription to their offering.

The general analog market is expected to experience slight revenue growth of 4 percent from 2011 to 2012. It is expected that analog sales will accelerate at a healthy rate of 9 percent annually on average over the next five years, and will see the strongest growth within the communications and consumer electronics segments, driven by the increased prevalence of smartphones, tablets, and other portable devices. These end devices are demanding analog chips that feature greater processing power in smaller technology nodes. As a result, Analog suppliers are boosting their 300mm analog production. TI was one of the first to make the move when it acquired the 300mm production equipment from former memory supplier Qimonda. Other players have since joined in. Maxim, for example, began producing 300-mm wafers in late 2010 using its 180-nm BCD analog process technology in Taiwan's Powerchip Technology's wafer fab through a major foundry agreement. Infineon has also recently announced the production of power chips at its 300mm facility.
