2014-02-14 17:15:03 - Global Mobile Phone Core Chip Market 2012-2016 - a new market research report on companiesandmarkets.com
The Global Mobile Phone Core Chip market is to grow at a CAGR of 11.2 percent over the period 2012-2016. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increasing penetration of wireless communication networks. The market has also been witnessing increased focus on producing low-power integrated circuits (ICs). However, difficulties faced when providing high-precision and robust ICs in an economic manner could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.
Many key players in the Global Semiconductor market are fabless. Likewise, mobile phone core chip vendors are also going fabless, mainly to minimize the expenditure incurred in maintaining and operating their foundries. Since these companies are currently concentrating more on the design and development of their
solutions, they are outsourcing their fabrication and other foundry-related activities to companies that specialize in providing such foundry solutions. As a result, the ratio of foundries and fabless companies stands at 1:11 in the Global Semiconductor market. Hence, semiconductor companies going fabless is another emerging trend witnessed in the Global Mobile Phone Core Chip market.
The core reason for the presence of these factors is the demand for advanced mobile phones across the world. The key factor driving the growth of the Global Mobile Phone Core Chip market is the rapid development in the Smartphone and Mobile Phone segments. Moreover, the demand for mobile phones with advanced capabilities across several consumer segments in the market is further driving the growth of this market.
One of the key challenges faced by this market is the availability of high precision ICs at affordable prices. Global players make heavy investments while manufacturing these ICs, as they have to be manufactured in accordance with international standards. As a result, providing ICs at competitive rates becomes impossible for global players. However, regional players can afford to provide ICs at reduced rates as they do not have to comply with such regulations, and thus provide high-precision ICs at affordable prices.
The key vendors dominating this market space include Intel Corp., MediaTek Inc., Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., and Qualcomm Inc. The other vendors mentioned in this report are Broadcom Corp., Renesas Electronics Corp., Skyworks Solutions Inc., Spreadtrum Communications Inc., ST-Ericsson Inc., and Texas Instruments Inc.
