Databeans Estimates PLD and Standard-Cell ASIC Market Size to Hover at $11.9 billion


December 17th, 2010

Global Information, Inc. would like to present a new market research report, "2010 PLDs and Standard Cell ASICs" by Databeans, Inc..

The total Programmable Logic Device (PLD) and Standard-Cell Application-Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) market is expected to undergo a shift in composition through the next five years. This half-decade shift will largely be characterized by a transition into a market in which PLD and field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) take on critical and substantial contributor positions due to a migration of these devices in major consuming application segments similar to those found in wired communications and the industrial market, for example.

According to Databeans, "total logic devices revenue for this year is expected to exceed &75 billion, constituting a 27 percent share of the overall semiconductor market." Currently, the programmable logic device (PLD) and standard-cell application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) segment accounts for 15.8 percent of the global logic semiconductors market. The segment deal with special purpose communications, in particular, is the largest in the logic device arena. Unit growth is projected to match revenue growth in this market as a result of augmented efficiency and decreased manufacturing costs during the five-year forecast period.

This 72-page study captures significant findings for the PLD and Standard-Cell ASIC market in addition to the market for logic semiconductors. The report provides snapshots of the aforementioned markets with regional forecasts for: Americas, Europe, Japan, and Asia Pacific. Production analyses of PLD/CPLD, FPGA, and Standard-Cell ASIC are included as well. Also, there is a discussion on supplier market share featuring the following companies: Altera, IBM, NEC (now known as Renesas Electronics), Fujitsu, and Xilinx.
