LONDON

Technavio has announced the top five leading vendors for the global analog ICs marketin their latest research report. This report also lists five other prominent vendors who are expected to contribute to this market’s growth over the forecast period.

Many segments of the analog ICs market, including computer hardware,automotive,customer electronics, and communications will likely see an increase in market size and revenue from 2016-2020.

“The automotive segment is set to be the fastest-growing segment of the global analog IC market during the forecast period. Analog ICs are used in various automobile applications such as power management, fuel efficiency, and engine control. Due to the growth of the automotive sector we anticipate significant demand for analog ICs that are used in power management and microcontrollers (MCUs) for security and lane assistance,” said Navin Rajendran, one of Technavio’s lead market research analyst for embedded systems research.

“Automakers are developing advanced and fuel-efficient engines to meet emission standards and conformity requirements. This creates substantial demand for analog ICs, a trend that is expected to continue during the forecast period,” added Navin.

The global analog IC market is expected to witness fluctuating growth during the forecast period. This is essentially attributed to the cyclical nature of the semiconductor industry leading to unstable revenue generation in the market. To enhance their market shares, market vendors are focusing on reducing production costs and simplifying technologies to attract original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).

Five leading vendors in the global analog ICs market:

Analog Devices is a US-based semiconductor company that specializes in data conversion and signal conditioning technology. The company is a leading manufacturer of digital signal processing, analog, and mixed-signal ICs that are widely used in electronic equipment. They have close to 2,200 patents to their name and are operating in this market for the last 50 years.

The company’s analog devices business segment has a vast customer base across various sectors. They design and develop highly innovative signal processing technology, which is widely used in the conversion of light, sound, temperature, and pressure into electric signals that are used in electronic equipment.

Infineon Technologies

Infineon Technologies, headquartered in Neubiberg, Germany, designs and develops semiconductor solutions. Some of the subsidiaries of the company include Infineon Technologies Asia Pacific, Infineon Technologies Nordic, Infineon Technologies North America, and LS Power Semitech.

The major segments of the company are automotive and industrial. Their product range includes standard components, custom-specific solutions for devices and systems, and specific components for analog, digital, and mixed-signal applications, as well as embedded, non-volatile memories. Its products are used in numerous microelectronic applications such as computer systems, telecommunications systems, and consumer goods.

As of September 30, 2014, they had a workforce of more than 29,800 employees, generated revenue of around USD 5.86 billion and spent close to USD 750 million on R&D activities.

STMicroelectronics

STMicroelectronics is an electronics and semiconductor manufacturer that was established through the merger of Societa Generale Semiconduttori (SGS) Microelettronica and Thomson Semiconducteurs. They were known as SGS-Thomson after the merger and were renamed STMicroelectronics in 1998.

The company is responsible for the design, industrialization, manufacturing and marketing for its product portfolio. The company’s operations are assisted by a central R&D organization and local sales offices. In February 2015, the company announced the launch of its high-performance analog ICs, integrating near field communication (NFC) technology from AMS with its ST21NFCC controller.

Texas Instruments

Texas Instruments is engaged in designing and making semiconductors for electronics designers and manufacturers. They generate a majority of their revenues through the analog segment. Their products are sold to OEMs, original design manufacturers (ODMs), contract manufacturers, and distributors. Their trademarks include Texas Instruments, Open Multimedia Application Platform (OMAP), and Digital Light Processing (DLP). In FY2014, Texas Instruments reported revenue of around USD 8.1 billion, showing 13% growth from the previous year.

Skywork Solutions

Skywork Solutions leverages its core analog technologies to expand its solutions portfolio to diverse customers. Since its inception, the company has grown its customer base to include Cisco, Ericsson, Foxconn, Fujitsu, General Electric, Google, Honeywell, LG Electronics, Nest, Net Gear, Nokia, Northrop Grumman, Rockwell Collins, Samsung, Sensus, and ZTE.
