Driven by demand for high-speed, low power consuming chips, the market for System-on-a-Chip (SoC) is set to experience robust growth. the global market System-on-a-Chip or SoC market is expected to increase by more than 150% between the years 2006 and 2010.San Jose, CA -- July 24, 2007
-- Present day electronic devices require chips that occupy a small footprint, consume less power, and provide high-speed capabilities. In recent times SoC has emerged as the answer to all these requirements. SoC are of two major product types - SoCs Based on Standard Cell, and SoCs Based on Embedded IP. They are primarily used in computers, communication equipment, consumer electronic devices, and automotive applications. New end-use applications, which include mobile phones, and automotives, are driving market growth. 3-D SoC and 90-nanometer technologies are emerging as the leading SoC technologies owing to growth in respective end-use industries.
United States represents the world's largest SoC market, worth an estimated US$10.4 billion in 2007, as stated in a recent report published by Global Industry Analysts, Inc. Asia (excluding Japan) and Europe are the second and third largest markets respectively. The three regions collectively account for about 80 percent of the global system-on-a-chip market. The global and regional markets are expected to grow at CAGRs ranging between 20% and 35% through 2010. Market for SoCs Based on Embedded IP is expected to grow at a CAGR of 29% for the period 2006-2010, while the Standard Cell based SoCs market is projected to expand at 21%. On the end-use front, consumer electronic devices offer the highest growth opportunity with a CAGR of 31% between 2006-2010, followed by automotive applications at 30%.System-on-a-Chip: A Global Strategic Business Report
