This market research report analyzes the prominent players in the baseband processor market such as Qualcomm, MediaTek, Intel, Broadcom, and Spreadtrum. The report also presents a competitive analysis of the market by application (tablets and smartphones) and by geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA).

Global outlook of the baseband processor market

Technavio’s market research analysts have predicted that the global baseband processor market will grow steadily during the forecast period and will post a CAGR of almost 14% by 2020. High speed internet connectivity helps in faster web browsing, faster streaming of videos, and better performance of global psitioning syetm (GPS). Owing to this, there is an increasing demand for high speed 3G/4G internet services all across the globe. As a result, the 2G badwidth will soon be replaced with 3G/4G services which will in turn, compel mobile device users to purchase new smartphones that support high speed internet connectivity. This demand for the adoption of long term evolution based mobile devices will be one of the major factors that will have a positive impact on the growth of the baseband processing equipment market in the coming years.

The use of gesture recognition in smartphones and tablets will be one of the major trends that will gain traction in this market during the forecast period. Gesture recognition technology interprets human motions using computer algorithms and uses gestures as an input mechanism for replacing conventional input mechanisms such as keyboards and remote control. When combined with voice recognition, eye-tracking, facial recognition, and other related technologies, gesture recognition technology can be used to effectively control machines and will soon find integrations into mobile devices such as smartphones and tablet computers.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

Characterized by the presence of a large number of established vendors, the baseband processors market appears to be highly competitive. The vendor competition in the market is intense and the predicted growth of the market is likely to intensify this competition further. The recent years have seen several vendors including TXN, FSL, and BRCM withdraw from the market due to the intense competition. Several vendors are witnessing a reduction in their market shares due to the stiff competition and also due to prominent smartphone vendors opting for in-house production.

The prominent vendors in the market are -

  • Qualcomm
  • MediaTek
  • Intel
  • Broadcom
  • Spreadtrum

Segmentation by application and analysis of the baseband processor market

  • Smartphones
  • Tablets

Accounting for more than 95% of the total share of the market, the smartphones market segment dominated the industry during 2015. Factors such as increase in the internet usage and the growth of IoT will drive the demand for smartphones. Also, the entry of new vendors who offer smartphones at prices lower than that of the established vendors has resulted in the decrease in the average selling price of smartphones, which will result in the growth in their demand. Since mobile phone processors account for a major function in wireless devices such as smartphones, an increase in their demand will drive the growth of the market.

Geographical segmentation and analysis of the baseband processor market

  • Americas
  • APAC
  • EMEA

This market study estimates that in terms of geography, APAC will dominate this market throughout the forecast period and will also account for more than 52% of the total shares of the market by 2020. The rising disposable income of the consumers, growing internet penetration, rapid urbanization, and the increase in number of mobile broadband subscriptions have led to the growth in the adoption of smartphones and tablet computers in this region, which in turn, will fuel the growth of the baseband processors market during the predicted period.
