Industrial semiconductors generated $20 billion in
global revenue for 2004. The largest industrial semiconductor segment was industrial controls, with an estimated 32 percent share of the market. Other segments within the industrial semiconductor market were: test and measurement (23 percent), military/aerospace (11 percent), and medical (10 percent). Products not specific to any of the aforementioned segments constituted about 24 percent of the market. Analog ICs constitute the largest market share of industrial semiconductors, at 18 percent of the market, and demand is especially strong now for analog power and special purpose components. The industrial analog IC market was valued at $3.4 billion for 2004.
In Databeans' latest report, entitled "2005 Industrial Analog ICs," analysts look at the use of industrial analog ICs, such as ASIC/ASSP (special purpose), analog power ICs, data converters, amplifiers, comparators, and interface, in relation to the major industrial consumption segments. Industrial controls and test and measurement represent the largest opportunities for ASIC/ASSP industrial analog suppliers, with a combined estimated market value of over $1 billion for this year. And although it is relatively small, the medical segment is where most of the growth is taking place, due to the increased demand for home medical electronics and rapidly evolving medical technology. Visibly, more high performance analog suppliers are focused on this space, bringing to market scores of new products optimized for such high end applications as medical imaging, patient monitoring, and implantable devices.
In this new study, forecast data and commentary is given on the usage and growth potential for industrial analog ICs in medical, test and measurement, industrial controls, and military/aerospace. The report also examines regional growth for industrial analog ICs, and includes updates on how the major suppliers are doing, including global market shares.
