Fabless IC: A Global Multi-Client Research Initiative
San Jose, California (PRWEB) August 22, 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 the growing trend of outsourcing fabrication of semiconductor chips; disintegration of the semiconductor value chain as a result of specialization; increased government support in countries like China; and robust demand for semiconductor chips from the booming electronics industry. In the infamously high cost semiconductor industry, fabless has emerged as a cost effective business model for supplying ICs. Growth in the market is being led by extensive use of ICs in products like computers, televisions, audio players, telephones, mobile phones and smartphones, among others. Apart from this, usage of ICs in advanced application areas like automotive electronics, aeroplanes, and state-of-art weaponry, is also fostering demand for Fabless ICs.
The shift towards miniaturization is also driving growth in the market by requiring specialization of back-end fabrication. In the coming years, the persistent financial challenges and the pressure on capital will continue to mark the distinct evolution of pure-play foundries and fabless suppliers. The fabless model of microchip production will continue to gain prominence, given its unrivalled cost benefits. Fabless IC players will continue to outpace pure-play Integrated Device Manufacturers (IDM) like Intel, which are becoming increasingly niche. The growing need for an efficient personal area network (PAN) technology that supports high speed data transfer is also spewing opportunities for Fabless IC design for wireless communication. With ever growing functional demands being placed on semiconductor chips, growing in popularity are fabless design companies dedicated to fabricating SoC (system-on-chip). Growth in emerging markets, particularly China, is being led by government stimulus programs which include the provision of IP cores, tools and necessary funding, among others. The study estimates fabless IC to be a multi-million dollar market worldwide, while more precise market-size and growth projections 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.
The report outlines the importance of creating value in the semiconductor industry and the ability of the fabless production model to generate economic profits. Developed for fabless IC suppliers, fabrication companies, semiconductor suppliers, venture capital firms, consulting firms, and technology domain experts, the report helps identify the biggest opportunities in this space and offers accurate latent demand forecasting that empowers quantitative decision making among existing market players and new entrants.
