2010 saw the global handset semiconductor market achieve an estimated revenue jump of about 15% compared to 2009, on a shipment growth of 13%. According to ABI Research practice director Peter Cooney, “Consistent demand for smartphones has become the major driver behind semiconductor market growth. In view of the return on investment (ROI) and the technological barriers to entry, many semiconductor vendors are contemplating merger and acquisition strategies to align their technologies for the future.”
Cooney concludes: “The total revenue delivered by handset semiconductors is set to continue growing over the next five years, driven primarily by the growing numbers of ICs supporting multiple functions in the next generations of smartphones.”
