Market Research From The Industry Experts
Sales of semiconductors for wired-communications applications have labored under uneven economic conditions. Although the enterprise market remains soft as companies defer investment in networking gear, data centers are driving demand for high-speed equipment. Broadband is a mixed bag as DSL deployments slow but China plows forward with FTTx. Investment in cellular infrastructure, particularly LTE, is driving a recovery in optical-transport ICs and other complementary wireline technology.
Meanwhile, the supply base, once populated by a mixture of startups, midsized companies, and a few big companies has become increasingly concentrated, With more technologies under its roof, the typical chip supplier is better able to integrate system functions into a single chip to lower system cost (and concomitantly lower industry revenue). With fewer competitors, the supplier is also more likely to avoid the ruinous price wars that plagued product markets such as DSL. How all these factors come into play affects our outlook for communications semiconductors. Companies seeking to understand these dynamics will benefit from the perspective of the leading group of communications semiconductor analysts.
