Global Information would like to present a market research report, "2009 Digital Signal Processors" by Databeans.
The DSP market constitutes just 2 percent of the entire semiconductor market. The market is valued at $5.3 billion for this year, assuming a volume of 1.5 billion units shipped. Databeans expects this market to grow at a rate of 11 percent on average per year, for the duration of the forecast period through year 2014.
Over 70 percent of digital signal processor revenue comes from communications market applications, with much of that coming specifically from mobile phones; but even outside of those areas there are opportunities for growth in consumer electronics, and in some industrial market segments like medical electronics, which increases demand for design innovations and supplier commitment.
Key figures include:
- 2009 and 2014 Worldwide DSP Revenue Share and Shipments by Region (Americas, Europe, Japan, Asia Pac.)
- Worldwide Automotive DSP Revenue Forecast by Application (mobile phone, wireless infrastructure, short range wireless, Wired Communications)
- 2008 Worldwide Digital Signal Processor Revenue Share by Supplier
