INTRODUCTION

System-in-package (SiP) is a combination of integrated circuits (ICs) enclosed in a single package or module. Additionally, passive components are mounted on the same substrate. SiP is not just an IC package with multiple dies; it comprises fully functional systems or subsystems in an IC package format.SiP, while being a packaging technique, differs substantially from other packaging technologies. The latter largely involve minimal complex design considerations, whereas for SiP, an effective subsystem or system, the interconnection and integration are substantially more complex.SiP brings tangible gains in space reduction. While system-on-chip (SoC) achieves the same objective more effectively, SoC design is more complex and time consuming than SiP. SiP’s simplicity has opened a wide array of uses for it in less than a decade since its inception. However, SiP also faces significant challenges in being able to assure form yield maximization.This report attempts to weigh the positives of SiP with the negatives in quantitative as well as qualitative contexts.

STUDY GOALS AND OBJECTIVES

This study has the following goals and objectives:
Measuring and forecasting the global market size for SiP-based chipsets in value (dollar sales) and volume (shipment sales) terms.
Breaking down the market for global SiP-enabled chipsets components along the following end applications in value and volume terms: telecommunications; instrumentation and scientific research; medicine; energy, defense and surveillance; consumer electronics; industrial and automotive; retail; and others.
Breaking down individual SiP-enabled chipset end-use applications along the following die compositions in value and volume terms: compound semiconductors and silicon (Si).
Breaking down individual SiP-enabled chipset end-use applications along the following regions in value and volume terms: the Americas; Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA); and Asia–Pacific (APAC).
Breaking down individual SiP-enabled chipset end-use applications along the following countries in value and volume terms: U.S., Brazil, Canada, Mexico, Germany, U.K., France, Italy, Spain, Russia, the Netherlands, Turkey, China, Japan, India, Indonesia and South Korea.
Analyzing the stakeholder landscape in the SiP-enabled chipset value chain.
Analyzing the patenting activity involving SiP-enabled chipsets.

REASONS FOR DOING THE STUDY

SiP is unique in its ability to combine the principles of electronic circuit design along with that of semiconductor packaging. It is also the only packaging technique that is pitted against SoC, a completely different methodology of integrating multiple functionalities. The simplicity of SiP makes it possible to combine diverse functionalities that SoC cannot cater to.SiP thus caters to a wide array of uses across application areas. This report is an effort to quantify the market in terms of dollar sales and shipment volumes—a departure from the predominantly service-focused coverage of the semiconductor-packaging market.SiP-based chipsets are essentially systems or subsystems that combine multiple passive components and active dies. The quantification of such subsystems is not the mainstream tracking mode. Most market studies track the market at individual component level—active or passive.

This report quantifies the entire package, which provides new insight into the market dynamics.This report also sheds light on the challenges and limitations faced by SiP. It also gives due coverage to alternative integration methodologies, such as SoC. This look at the alternatives provides a balance to the report coverage.Essentially, the report focuses on end-use applications, which can be easily quantified and whose physical attributes can be compared, contrasted, tracked and analyzed.Each end-use application has its own dynamics, benefits and challenges with respect to levels of adoption of SiP-enabled chipsets. On a larger note, each end-use application has its own market momentum dictated by the health of the regional and country markets. When these aspects are mapped for individual countries, they produce a fascinating collage of local market conditions that add to the larger picture. This report provides a refined view of individual country markets in volume and value terms for 17 key nations spanning all global regions.

SCOPE OF THE REPORT

The report measures and forecasts the size of the market in current U.S. dollars as well as in millions of shipment units for chipsets packaged using SiP.The report forecasts the market size for the following:
Individual end-use application such as telecommunications; instrumentation and scientific research; medicine; energy, defense and surveillance; consumer electronics; industrial and automotive; retail; and others.
The above forecasts are classified in terms of die compositions, geographical regions and countries on volume and value bases; they are also classified in terms of value chain contributors on a value basis.
The Executive Summary provides a snapshot of key findings of the report.The chapter on theoretical overview of SiP defines SiP and explains its morphology. SiP is placed in the context of other advanced packaging techniques, and a wider view is presented of where semiconductor packaging itself fits in the device-synthesis chain. The chapter dwells on simple and compound semiconductors and elaborates their pros and cons. Further, a high-level view of the SiP market is provided.The chapter on global markets for SiP-enabled chipsets provides a closer look at the global market for those chipsets. End-use applications are used as the principal classification factor, and individual end-application markets are broken down by region and die composition.

The chapter on regional analysis for the Americas presents an overview of the region and the overall market metrics, followed by analyses of individual major countries such as the U.S., Brazil, Canada and Mexico.The chapter on regional analysis for EMEA presents an overview of the region and the overall market metrics, followed by analyses of individual major countries such as Germany, France, the U.K., Spain, Italy, Russia, the Netherlands and Turkey.The chapter on regional analysis for APAC presents an overview of the region and the overall market metrics, followed by analyses of individual major countries such as China, Japan, India, South Korea and Indonesia.The chapter on major stakeholders and key companies identifies the influential stakeholder categories and leading companies that dominate the market for SiP-based chipsets.The U.S. Patent Analysis chapter analyzes the U.S. patents granted in the relevant areas of SiP. The chapter classifies the patents awarded according to categories such as: analog–digital converter (ADC), digital–analog converter (DAC), radiofrequency (RF), antenna and other communication-component-specific integration; assembly and integration end-to-end process; bond, resin, solder, interposer and lead frame; design and alignment; die stacking and side-by-side placement facilitation; end-application-specific innovation-data transmission; memory-component-specific innovation; passive component integration; performance testing and verification; and power management, heat sink, inductor and capacitor.
