Cellular Handset & Chip Markets '09
An In-Depth Analysis of Cellphones, Chips & Subscribers
Report No: 9030
Cellular handset shipment growth in 2008 slowed from 23% in 2007 to 4.1% in 2008, but the entire electronics market has been muted because of global economic conditions. We are forecasting a 4.4% handset unit decline for 2009, but some handset types and some cellular markets are growing in 2009 and beyond. For example, in 2009 smartphone shipments are predicted to grow by 25%, feature phones by 2.5% and ultra-low-cost phones for developing countries will grow by 14.5%.
This is likely the most extensive market analysis of both handsets and chips available. While others concentrate on tracking the top 6 handset companies, we track the top 53. And, we track those handset companies' shipments by air interface, including not only the popular ones, but also many of which you were not aware.
This extensive (594-page) market study covers cellular handsets, the integrated circuits that enable those devices and the vendors of both. Our informed views on the global market and trends will be of great benefit in your long-term planning.
Of course, the buzz is now about fourth-generation cellular, in the form of LTE (Long Term Evolution). We devote a full chapter to LTE and forecast both handsets and integrated circuits for it, as well.
In addition to handset and chip vendor coverage, the report includes extensive forecasts of cellular subscribers and handset shipments for more than 100 countries. You are sure to find it to be immense value in your future product and market planning.
The cellphone continues to be the physical and market magnet that is pulling in the functionality of digital cameras, PDAs, MP3 players, GPS navigators, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, AM/FM Radio, mobile TV, cordless phones, smart cards and fingerprint sensors. It is important to understand that the cellphone is quickly becoming the dominant market for virtually all of these functions. If your company is involved with any products that provide these functions, you will need to know how these traditional markets will change significantly because of cellular technology.
This study explores the dynamics of each of these functions and profiles the chip providers for each of them...and it forecasts the markets for virtually all cellphone chip types, including digital basebands, RF transceivers and power amplifiers, power management units, application processors, new communication processors (incorporating both basebands and application processors) and more.
While a few companies dominate the cellphone chip market, new peripherals are being added...creating opportunities for other vendors to target new chip types to get their piece of the market. For example, this report covers the new OLED display modules that will begin to displace traditional LCDs This study provides the key information needed for new opportunities and business plans.
With this valuable resource, you will be better equipped to understand the market and new business opportunities, to know your potential customers and to be better informed about your competitors. We believe that there is no other cellphone or cellphone chip market study available that has the breadth or depth of coverage of this one. You are invited to scan the 18-page table of contents to get an idea of the full extent of this valuable study and all of the companies and components covered.
As with all of our reports, your satisfaction is guaranteed.
