This IDC study identifies IDC's top 10 predictions for the worldwide enabling technologies and semiconductor market for 2014. As in the past, some of our top predictions for this year are natural extensions of trends that began earlier. Other predictions discuss relatively new phenomena that have yet to gain the attention of the industry — LTE proliferation, sensors, connectivity, wearable technologies, and the evolving Internet of Things market to name a few.
According to Les Santiago, research director in IDC's Semiconductors Research practice, "Underlying virtually every new gadget or system trend in the industry is a vibrant semiconductor ecosystem that continually innovates and pushes the bounds of design and process technology. Our 2014 predictions will be particularly relevant to clients in executive management, strategic management, and product management roles."
