SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., May 24, 2006 - The Field-Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) market, with a quickly expanding array of uses, is on a roll, reports In-Stat (http://www.in-stat.com). The value of worldwide FPGA shipments will increase from $1.9 billion in 2005 to $2.75 billion by 2010, the high-tech market research firm says. Much of this revenue will come from low volume shipments.
“In large part, low volume use of this product, relates directly to price, which directly correlates to complexity, and prices can run from less that $100 per unit to several thousand dollars per unit,” Worchel says. “End-use applications will determine the viability of using FPGAs for the long haul.”
Recent research by In-Stat found the following:
The largest two end-use segments will be communications and industrial, whose combined market share of the FPGA market will increase from 73.8% in 2005, to 76.8% by 2010.
FPGAs find applications across the entire spectrum of electronic system design, from basic glue logic at the lower densities, to high-complexity, ASIC-type devices at the high-density end.
At the high-end, products such as Altera’s Stratix family, or Xilinx’s Virtex family, find their main applications in the development of high-volume products, most notably in the communications market.
Recent In-Stat research, The Field-Programmable Gate Array (FPGA): Expanding Its Boundaries (#IN0603187SI), covers the worldwide FPGA market. It includes forecasts of end-use dollar consumption by category through 2010. It also contains extensive analysis of market trends and profiles of major vendors.
