$75.5 Billion Wireless Industry is Fastest Growing Market for Semiconductor Consumption

FARMINGTON, Conn., Oct. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The wireless market is currently the single fastest growing application for semiconductors on earth, thanks to major consumer demand for smartphones, which has led to increased wireless base station rollouts and additional network infrastructure.


Global Information, Inc. (GII) is pleased to announce the immediate availability of three new market research reports highlighting critical semiconductor market segments.

2012 Wireless Semiconductors

As a distinct category, wireless is the second largest semiconductor segment, behind only the computer market, with nearly $75.5 billion in projected 2012 global sales, a 6 percent improvement over the prior year. This is good enough to account for roughly one quarter share of the total global semiconductor market. Furthermore, this industry is also the fastest growing market for semiconductor consumption overall, witnessing a better than market average compound annual growth rate over the next five years.

This report covers the overall worldwide wireless market and regional breakdowns for the Americas, Europe, Japan, China, Taiwan, Korea, Singapore and Malaysia, and India. The wireless report also features data on application consumption of mobile phones and corresponding infrastructure. A production analysis covers breakdowns of chip categories used in the wireless market and their forecasted value.

Multicore Processors Drive the Software-Defined Network

The market for multicore processors in networking continues to grow. Many companies are using com-mon blades with multicore processors for a wide range of functions. This reduces development costs and allows telecom equipment manufacturers to use standardized platforms such as ATCA. Most multicore processor vendors now have a range of devices with different numbers of cores and hardware acceleration engines. This allows system developers to meet a range of different performance and functional demands using multicore processors that are software compatible across all their systems.

The new report by Heavy Reading surveys vendors developing high-performance multicore processors. As such, it not only provides granular information on the components themselves - of interest to chip manufacturers and purchasers - but also provides insights into how the overall market for multicore processors is likely to develop - of interest to a wide audience, including carriers and investors.
