Despite the fact that tablets have been available for quite some time, it took Apple’s April 2010 launch of the iPad to legitimize the market. The impact on silicon providers has been dramatic, but it’s about to take on even bigger dimensions. New In-Stat (http://www.in-stat.com) research forecasts that silicon content for tablets will soar to nearly $14 billion by 2015.

“Without question, tablets are driving the increases in silicon TAM (total available market) in portable entertainment devices,” according to Stephanie Ethier, Senior Analyst. “Global sales for tablets are on the rise as a result of continued consumer demand, global expansion of tablets, and a wider adoption of these devices beyond early adopters. In 2015, tablet and e-readers silicon will account for nearly 85% of all silicon content dominating the category.”

In-Stat’s findings include the following:

  •     E-reader unit shipments will reach 40 million units by 2015.
  •     The processor total available market (TAM) for PMPs will reach $2.2 billion in 2011.
  •     Tablet shipments will surpass 110 million units by 2013.
  •     Personal navigation device (PNDs) shipments will peak in 2012, then start to decline, as a result of the proliferation of navigation capability in handsets.

Recent In-Stat research, Portable and Computing Connected Device Silicon and Non-Silicon Revenue Opportunity (#IN1104998SI), provides a worldwide view of both the silicon and non-silicon component markets for a variety of portable consumer electronic (CE) devices popular today. Included in the report are five-year forecasts for worldwide unit shipments and bill of materials (BOM), as well as for the total available market (TAM) for both the silicon and non-silicon revenue opportunities in each portable CE segment. Both PED silicon TAM and PED non-silicon TAM for all portable CE devices are covered including:

  •     Digital photo frames(DPFs)
  •     Dedicated e-readers, such as Amazon’s Kindle DX and Barnes & Noble’s Nook
  •     Audio-only MP3 players
  •     Portable media players(PMPs)
  •     Personal navigation devices (PNDs)
