This industry research report analyzes the key players in the global transceiver chip market, which include Avago Technologies, MediaTek, Microchip Atmel, Qorvo, Qualcomm, and Skyworks Solutions. A comprehensive study of this market is also presented by application (mobile phones, tablets, PCs and laptops, smart TVs, and STBs) and by geography (APAC, Europe, and North America).

Overview of the transceiver chip market

Extensive research conducted by the analysts at Technavio has shown that the global transceiver chip market will grow impressively at a CAGR of close to 7% over the forecast period. Government organizations worldwide are investing billions of dollars in the development of smart cities, which require public Wi-Fi networks to provide various services, such as healthcare, traffic management, and waste and water management. Moreover, public Wi-Fi networks also offer location-based services to city planners so that they can gain insight into the functioning of a smart city and the lives of its citizens to provide better services to the residents. This is anticipated to result in an augmented demand for Wi-Fi routers in public places, which will indirectly boost the sales of high-powered transceiver chips for transmitting and receiving data signals from various connected smart devices.

The emergence of wearable technology has made it convenient to track daily activities and monitor fitness levels. These sensor-integrated devices like smartwatches, smart fabric, heart rate monitors, smart glasses, and fitness bands employ mobile communication technology and have transceiver chips fitted in them. Owing to the increasing adoption of smart wearables, semiconductor device manufacturers like Toshiba are developing specialized ICs to fulfill technology requirements, which is likely to result in the growth of the transceiver chip market in the coming years.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The global transceiver chip market is characterized by the presence of numerous well-diversified international and regional vendors. The market is highly versatile with different types of transceiver chips being used across various fields. The adoption of these chips is largely spread across different consumer segments with electronic capabilities. The vendors compete on the basis of factors such as price, quality, innovation, and performance, and support services. Rapid technological advances, intense vendor competition, and cyclical nature of the semiconductor industry constitute significant risks for market vendors.

Key vendors in this market are -

  • Avago Technologies
  • MediaTek
  • Microchip Atmel
  • Qorvo
  • Qualcomm
  • Skyworks Solutions

Other prominent players in the market include Analog Devices, Cisco Systems, GCT Semiconductor, Lime Microsystems, Microsemi Corporation, Nvidia, NXP Semiconductor, Phi Microtech, Silicon Motion, Spreadtrum Communications, ST-Ericsson, STMicroelectronics, and Texas Instruments.

Segmentation by application and analysis of the transceiver chip market

  • Mobile phones
  • Tablets
  • PCs and laptops
  • Smart TVs
  • STBs

During 2015, the mobile phone segment was the highest revenue contributing segment in the global transceiver chip market and is likely to reach more than USD 8 billion by 2020. The growth of this segment is attributed to the increasing use of internet-enabled smartphones. These phones are used for multiple purposes like accessing social networking apps, reading the news, surfing the web, and checking mail. Moreover, as the majority of IoT devices are controlled by apps installed on smartphones and tablets, the advent of the IoT technology will fuel this segment’s growth over the next four years.

Geographical segmentation and analysis of the transceiver chip market

  • APAC
  • Europe
  • North America

In terms of geography, APAC led the global transceiver chip market and accounted for close to 41% of the revenue market shares. The growth of this segment is attributed to the presence of numerous consumer electronic device manufacturers such as Samsung Electronics, LG Electronics, Sony, Micromax, and MI in the region. Also, the emerging economies of China and India will lead to an augmented demand for consumer electronic devices, which, in turn, will translate into the demand for transceiver chips in the region.
