Smartphone Boom and LTE Penetration Drive the Market

The global semiconductors market in next generation mobile computing is in its growth stage and mostly driven by smartphone growth and long-term evolution (LTE) deployment. This research service provides an analysis of the global semiconductors market in next generation mobile computing. The study covers the mobile device and infrastructure segments and divides markets by global, North America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific/Rest of Word. The study discusses the various drivers, restraints, and challenges that affect each regional market, identified by Frost & Sullivan through its in-depth market research methodology. Additionally, the study discusses a revenue forecast analysis from 2009 to 2019 for the global and regional markets.

Executive Summary

• The global semiconductors market in next generation mobile computing is in its growth stage and mostly driven by smartphone growth and long-term evolution (LTE) deployment.
• North America and Europe are both nearly mature markets in terms of technology and device penetration, while Asia-Pacific (APAC) and the Rest of World (ROW) are growing rapidly.
• Regarding infrastructure, WCDMA/HSPA* and CDMA* technologies dominate in the mature and developed geographies; GSM/EDGE* dominates emerging countries.
• Still, GSM/EDGE will see a complete decline by 2018, and WCDMA/HSPA will dominate the developing geographies as the global LTE footprint gradually increases.

CEO’s Perspective

1. Explosive growth of feature and smartphones will drive semiconductors worldwide through the forecast period.
2. Device penetration has saturated developed geographies such as North America and Europe, which results in slow growth.
3. APAC and ROW are the hotspots for semiconductor growth in the mobile computing segment.
4. WCDMA/HSPA and LTE will dominate the global mobile subscriptions by 2018.
5. LTE technology will form the basis for future 4G postpaid subscriptions; however, WiMAX still stands a fair chance with 4G prepaid subscriptions.
