Worldwide Communications Processor 2015–2019 Forecast and 2014 Vendor Shares

This IDC study provides the worldwide market forecast for communications processors for the 2015–2019 period. The study includes market share and analysis of major semiconductor companies, targeting equipment deployed in enterprise networks, mobile service provider infrastructure, and datacenters of cloud and Web service providers. This study reviews current industry dynamics, analyzes the market impact on vendors of communications processors collectively, and profiles the major vendors of SoC ASSPs and general-purpose standalone microprocessors that serve this market, specifically Intel, Broadcom, Cavium, and Freescale.

"Communications processors continue to evolve to support the needs of next-generation network infrastructure that require multicore, programmable devices with select, dedicated hardware acceleration. These SoCs and standalone microprocessors experienced robust 12.9% growth in 2014 over 2013, driven by adoption in cloud datacenters and service provider networks, and IDC forecasts continued expansion of the market at a CAGR of 4.1% over the next five years as the adoption of new architectures and deployment models drive upgrades in the infrastructure to support separation of hardware from software, network virtualization, software-defined networking (SDN), and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV)," said Abhi Dugar, IDC research manager for Cloud Infrastructure Technologies.
