Market Research From The Industry Experts
Sales of communications ASSPs have labored under uneven global economic conditions. Just as mature economies, including the U.S., are improving, China’s growth is slowing. Still, China’s GDP is expected to grow at three times the rate of the U.S. GDP. The improving outlook for the U.S. economy has reduced uncertainty, which should alleviate the deferral of investments and reduced consumption of the past several years. In addition, semiconductor inventories remain relatively low, which should prevent an inventory-correction cycle in the near term.
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. 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.
