Worldwide Smartphone Chip Revenue CAGR to Approach 21% 2009–2015, Says In-Stat
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. April 28, 2011—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. As a result, In-Stat (www.in-stat.com)
is forecasting that worldwide smartphone processor revenue
will have a CAGR of nearly 21% from 2009-2015.
“In the last 10 years, smartphones and phones in general
have created a multi-billion-dollar business where one did
not exist before,” says Allen Nogee, Research Director.
“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:
- Over 60 semiconductor companies worldwide produce semiconductor
components for mobile phones.
- Total handset semiconductor content will surpass $81 billion
- Pico projector revenue is forecast to grow at an amazing rate
of 163% over the forecast period.
- Smartphones are expected to make up 45.3% of all handsets
shipped in 2015.
- Semiconductor revenue associated with accelerometers and/or
gyros will exceed $300 million by 2014.
