San Jose, CA (PRWEB) September 17, 2013
Follow us on LinkedIn – In the coming months, GIA will complete an extensive secondary and primary research program involving some of the industry’s leading players and experts. The study will examine key drivers and trends impacting the market such as growing number of connectors, ports and slots on PCs; increasing demand for mobile PCs like tablets, notebooks, ultrabooks, netbooks, laptops etc; developments in communication interface technologies like USB 3.1, near field communications, Bluetooth, and eSATA, among others.
Interface technologies are an integral part of desktop and portable PCs since it expands the connectivity of the device and enables it to be highly configurable and upgradable. A host of devices connect to a PC and various technology advances are revolutionizing the way modern day PCs are used. Rising demand for enhanced performance is the key factor driving demand for advanced interface technologies for PCs. As modern PCs continue to become powerful in terms of both computing and connectivity, electronic interconnect technologies which include PC interfaces will continue to witness robust growth. PCs are currently manufactured with numerous connector sockets/ports for connectivity with myriad devices and peripherals. Demand for external PC interfaces will continue to be driven by the growing number of external hardware peripherals to be connected such as removable storage drives, webcams, mp3 players, etc. Internal interfaces inside a PC like integrated and discrete graphics interfaces, video interfaces, and high-definition multimedia interface will be spurred by the growing use of PCs as multimedia, entertainment and gaming devices. Increasing consumer demand for high-end games with intensive graphics for instance, is driving demand for advanced graphics processors.
Multimedia interfaces such as USB ports, memory card readers, and Blu-ray/DVD drives, will continue to witness steady demand encouraged by the rapid penetration of broadband enabled internet access, and the resulting need for connectivity and networking. The trend towards integrating security features in PCs will help drive demand for security interfaces for fingerprint readers, smart card reader, and Trusted Platform Module (TPM), among others. Developments in the HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) standard, such as the recent introduction of HDMI 2.0 in the year 2013 will also help drive growth in the market. Additionally, the increasing trend towards touchscreen display in mobile PCs is driving demand for touchscreen interfaces, such as, capacitive touchscreens, resistive touchscreens and optical touchscreens.
The study estimates the global PC interface technologies market to be a multi-million dollar market, while more precise market-size and growth projections for a 14-year period will be made available during the 2nd stage of report preparation, and data analysis.
The research and analyses will be released shortly in the form of a comprehensive research report. The report by design, will attempt to provide exhaustive analysis, data, trends, market share, market size, statistics, forecasts and competitive intelligence. The report is modeled to offer precise and unbiased, actionable market insights including in-depth segmentation of market sub-sectors, demand estimates and projections and analysis of trends in each of the sectors, identification of leading players, and the competitive structure, among others.
