Smartphone Integrated Circuits (IC) Market to 2020 – Greater Appetite for Connectivity ICs Including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS will Increase Demand Growth in the Demand for Smartphones is Expected to Drive IC sales The demand for smartphones has been growing at a very high rate. According to GBI Research, the overall year on year growth rate of the smartphone market in 2010 was 72%. Smartphone shipments increased to around 301.8 million in the year 2010, from 173 million in 2009. The increasing demand for these devices will have a direct positive impact on the demand for integrated circuits (ICs), such as processors, sensors, controllers, transceivers, power management, and connectivity ICs. The demand for near field communication (NFC) solutions is set to increase in the next couple of years. The demand for these chips will be sustained by increasing support coming from global mobile operators. At the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2011, global operators announced their intention of commercializing NFC-based services by 2012. This technology will not only be limited to mobile payments, but is expected to extend to other services and applications such as mobile ticketing, mobile couponing and access control. NFC was the dominant theme at the recent MWC and the market for these solutions will increase as many prominent handset vendors like Nokia, Samsung and RIM include this technology in their smartphones in 2011. The demand for higher quality services from smartphone users will drive LTE chipset revenues. The latest smartphones support advanced voice, video and data applications. The high definition (HD) video supported by most high end smartphones stretches 3G networks to breaking point. 3G technologies offer higher bit rates compared to 2G, but given the ever increasing demand for wireless broadband, wireless service providers can now improve the economics of deploying mobile broadband networks; taking advantage of the technological innovation.

Many carriers are now committed to this technology, which is expected to drive the LTE silicon market. The successful deployment of LTE networks will have a positive impact on baseband and radio frequency (RF) manufacturers. Smartphones are going to be the dominant users of multi mode LTE chipsets. Although high-speed downlink packet access (HDSPA) is the dominant 3G technology in mobile shipments, it is forecast that LTE will be the fastest growing technology in 2011.
