Forecasting Winners and Losers

"Mobile Semiconductor Market Share Forecast 2013-2018" provides a first look at 2014 market share and a forecast for market share through 2018. This report is unique in breaking down market share by vendor throughout the forecast period. Our model uses ongoing shifts in OEM share, technology (e.g., transition to integrated Wi-Fi), and product categories (e.g., tablet computers) to forecast which chip suppliers will benefit and which will lose out.

This report forecasts market size and vendor share for six categories of semiconductors for mobile applications: cellular baseband processors, application processors, Bluetooth transceivers, mobile Wi-Fi chips, GPS receivers, and NFC chips. Data includes both revenue and unit estimates for the leading vendors of each of these products. The report includes final 2013 share and forecasts of the leading vendors’ market share for each category in 2014 through 2018.

This unique report also provides an overall forecast of total units and revenue for each product category, with appropriate breakouts. For example, baseband processors are forecast by air interface, application processors by integration level, and connectivity chips by combo category. Our methodology combines bottoms-up interviews with chip suppliers with tops-down analysis of OEM shipments and their suppliers.

The report provides the detailed market information needed to sort out the dynamics of this market. With this report, chip vendors, OEMs, and investors will readily see which companies are the leading suppliers in a given product market, how these companies’ positions are changing, how big the mature product markets are, and how fast the emerging categories are growing.

Companies covered in the report include Allwinner, Freescale, Intel, Marvell, MediaTek, Nvidia, Qualcomm, RDA Microelectronics, Rockchip, Samsung, and Spreadtrum. This new edition forecasts the effects of Broadcom’s exit, Microsoft’s acquisition of Nokia, Lenovo’s acquisition of the Motorola brand, and the transition to LTE.

The report includes a brief text summary providing analysis of the data and a set of market share tables and figures for each category. Companies purchasing a corporate license also receive the tables in Microsoft Excel form.
