Analog IC Market
The analog integrated circuit (IC) market refers to the market for devices that handle continuous signals in contrast to digital ICs which handle discrete signals. The market for analog ICs is driven by increasing demand for electronic devices such as smartphones, automobiles, and the Internet of Things (IoT) devices that require analog functions such as amplification, conversion of analog signals to digital, and power management.
The market is expected to grow due to increasing demand for advanced analog ICs with high performance, miniaturization, and low power consumption. Key players in the market include Texas Instruments, Analog Devices, Infineon Technologies, and STMicroelectronics.
The presence of bogus semiconductors poses significant threats to global semiconductor suppliers, public health and safety, civilian and military infrastructure, and other stakeholders. Despite strict intellectual property laws, this is a widespread problem throughout the world. Because these fraudulent semiconductors are of poor quality, they fail prematurely or do not function as expected. When these semiconductors are assembled into navigational, detection, testing, or monitoring electronics, and other similar products, they can cause catastrophic failures in applications.
Another impact of these bogus semiconductors is that they can divert the potential revenue a company could have made from a product.
- In December 2022, Infineon and Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) began working together to combine TSMC’s non-volatile memory technology into Infineon’s AURIX microprocessors.
- In May 2022, Amid the trade tensions between US and China, Taiwan based semiconductor manufacturers are benefitting from China’s push for self-sufficiency in ICs. (2021)
The increased use of electronics in fuel efficiency, safety, emission reduction, navigation, and entertainment systems are increasing the demand for analog integrated circuits due to the penetration of semiconductor devices in automotive systems. Additionally, leading fully autonomous vehicles' automation systems are increasing the total IC content of each vehicle.
During the process of expanding the sensing range, improving detection precision, and implementing precise algorithms for prompt and efficient responses to various driving conditions, the computational load of next-generation advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) increases rapidly.
Due to these reasons, in 2022, the U.S. analog IC market companies helped the country to account for a dominant share of 17.1% in the global marketplace.
