There is little question that smartphone shipments are increasing by leaps and bounds every year, and that these devices are being enabled with more processing power to perform complex tasks on multiple technologies.
Allen Nogee, Research Director, said: “In the last 10 years, smartphones and phones in general have created a multi-billion-dollar business where one did not exist before. This business has enticed almost all the semiconductor players on the planet, both large and small, to produce components that enable mobile devices in ways we couldn’t have imagined just 10 years ago.
“The next 10 years will not see changes quite as dramatic as those in the last 10 years, but that isn’t to say the evolution of the handset won’t continue at a fast pace. It will.”
Recent In-Stat research found that over 60 semiconductor companies worldwide produce semiconductor components for mobile phones; total handset semiconductor content will surpass $81 billion in 2015; pico projector revenue is forecast to grow at an amazing rate of 163 percent over the forecast period; smartphones are expected to make up 45.3 percent of all handsets shipped in 2015; semiconductor revenue associated with accelerometers and/or gyros will exceed $300m by 2014.
