Global Information Inc. would like to present a new market research report, "2012 Timing Devices" by Databeans, Inc..
While the Timing Devices classification of semiconductor products, including traditional crystal oscillators, is a large $6.3 billion market, it is the timing circuits segment, which includes clock generation and clock distribution ICs, MEMS resonators, and CMOS oscillators, that is of particular interest to component suppliers looking for logic market growth opportunities.
Electronic timing devices are necessary products that synchronize components and constitute an essential part of many devices that generate signals. The major end markets include computer systems, consumer electronics, and communications equipment. Databeans estimates that in 2012 this total market will reach $4.5 billion in global revenue. Over the next five years both shipments and sales will expand by 6 percent annually on average.
This clock generation and distribution (Timing ICs) market grows mostly due to demand from the communications, computing, and consumer electronics segments. Databeans expects a market worth $2.4 billion by 2017, assuming a yearly growth rate of 10 percent on average.
