Research and Markets: The Semiconductor Market in the EMEA Region to Grow At A CAGR Of 3.05 Percent over the Period 2011-2015
DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/2jwkq4/semiconductor)
has announced the addition of the "Semiconductor
Market in EMEA 2011-2015" report to their offering.
One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the
increasing demand for smartphones and tablet PCs. The Semiconductor
market in the EMEA region has also been witnessing the development of
multifunctional ICs. However, the cyclical demand pattern could pose a
challenge to the growth of this market.
The key vendors dominating this market space are Semiconductor
Electronics Co. Ltd., Intel Corp., Infineon Technologies (News - Alert) AG,
STMicroelectronics N.V., and Toshiba Corp.
The other vendors mentione in the report are Advanced Micro Devices
Inc., Broadcom Corp., Micron Technology Inc., Qualcomm (News - Alert) Inc., Renesas
Electronics Corp., SK Hynix Inc., and Texas Instruments Inc.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio's Hardware team
said: ''The integration of multiple functions in a single integrated
circuit (IC) is one of the major trends in the market. For instance, a
single IC might have Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, and a number of other
functions. Multifunctional ICs have the advantage of being able to
support multiple applications, thus occupying less space in the device.
With the increase in the number of functions, the power consumed by the
IC will be higher. Excessive power consumption will tend to reduce the
service life of the product. Thus, vendors are concentrating on
developing ICs with multifunctional capabilities that consume less
According to the report, the Automotive sector is one of the major
contributors to the growth of the Semiconductor market in the EMEA
region. The Automotive sector in Germany is one of the key adopters of
semiconductors in the EMEA region. In terms of the number of automobiles
produced, Germany stood in the third position in 2011. The increasing
demand among customers for more digital content and automated electronic
systems in automobiles is one of the major factors contributing to the
growth of the Semiconductor market in the EMEA region.
Further, the report reveals that the main challenge faced by the market
is the cyclical demand pattern of the Global Semiconductor market.
