Early LTE Deployment Will Drive Revenue Growth

This research service provides an in-depth analysis of the North American (US and Canada) semiconductors market in next generation mobile computing. The study analyzes the mobile device and mobile infrastructure segments. Given the high level of device ownership in this region and the consumers’ tendency towards replacing existing devices with newer versions, a good semiconductor revenue inflow from the mobile segment is expected. Discussions cover various drivers, restraints, and challenges that affect the North American market, identified by Frost & Sullivan through its elaborate market research methodology. Also, included is a revenue forecast analysis from 2009 to 2019 for the North American region.

Executive Summary

• The North American semiconductors market for next generation mobile computing will experience steady growth though 2019. This region includes the United States and Canada.
• Given the high level of device ownership in this region and the consumers’ tendency towards replacing existing devices with newer versions, a good semiconductor revenue inflow from the mobile segment is expected.
• The long term evolution (LTE) versus worldwide interoperability for microwave access (WiMAX) war that has been going on in North America for since 2010 has stirred up a lot of speculation.
• Vendors who initially supported WiMAX have transitioned to LTE but could possibly use WiMAX for their pre-paid customers.

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.
