Global Transceiver Chip Market 2016-2020

About Transceiver Chips

A transceiver chip is an integrated circuit that is present in the transceiver module. It helps in transmitting and receiving signal frequencies in electronic devices. Different transceivers are available for radio, video, Ethernet, or wireless communication. Transceivers can also be built into a computer modem by embedding into network cards. The function of transceiver chips remains the same irrespective of the type of media or data that needs to be transferred.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global transceiver chip market to grow at a CAGR of 6.81% during the period 2016-2020.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Transceiver Chip Market 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global transceiver chip market: Avago Technologies, MediaTek, Microchip Atmel, Qorvo, Qualcomm, and Skyworks Solutions.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Analog Devices, Cisco Systems, GCT Semiconductor, Lime Microsystems, Microsemi, Nvidia, NXP Semiconductor, Phi Microtech, Silicon Motion, Spreadtrum Communications, ST-Ericsson, STMicroelectronics, and Texas Instruments.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The availability of multiple features on a single platform is an emerging trend in the transceiver market. Electronic devices such as smartphones, laptops, notebooks, and ultrabooks are witnessing rapid technological developments in terms of software and hardware. These electronic devices are increasingly functioning as multi-functional terminals that offer a range of new applications on a single platform.”

According to the report, short replacement cycle of consumer electronic devices will be a key driver for market growth. Technological advances and an increase in the disposable income of most people are changing the buying patterns of consumers globally. At present, electronic devices such as mobile and consumer devices become obsolete in a short time, i.e., within one to one-and-half years, and are replaced by higher versions or better technology models launched by OEMs. This leads to shorter product replacement cycles. According to industry experts, Apple generates 70% of its revenue from recurring sales and only 30% from new users. The company's replacement sales are expected to reach 80% of the overall sales in the future.

Further, the report states that the global transceiver chip market is highly dependent on the sales of electronic devices. The rising and falling demand for electronic products, such as consumer electronic devices and mobile devices, makes forecasting in the semiconductor market difficult, leading to oversupply or undersupply of transceiver chips. These demand fluctuations in the market are unavoidable and may result in inventory pile-up in the supply chain, delayed time-to-market, and reduced profitability of market vendors. Thus, the cyclical demand in the end-user markets, as well as the industry-wide supply fluctuations, pose a serious challenge to the market's growth.
