This IDC study identifies IDC's semiconductor research team's top 10 predictions for the worldwide semiconductor market for 2012. It highlights the major trends and critical developments that will affect the wide spectrum of semiconductor devices, market verticals, device applications, and associated companies and value chain.
"The semiconductor market continues to become a more complex and an intense place to compete. In addition, as companies look to adjacency for growth, more vertical integration is expected. At the same time, new technologies and new applications for existing technologies allow emerging new companies to successfully enter the market and compete in specialized, niche segments of the market, especially in the second half of 2012, when the semiconductor industry revenue will pick up after bottoming in early 2Q12," says Mali Venkatesan, research manager, Semiconductors, Emerging Markets, and Emerging Technologies at IDC.
