This IDC study identifies IDC's top 10 predictions for the worldwide enabling technologies and semiconductor market for 2016. These predictions will be particularly relevant to clients in executive management, strategic management, and product management roles.
According to Les Santiago, research director in IDC's Enabling Technologies research practice, "With a challenging 2016 in store for the semiconductor industry due to the maturation of its traditional drivers such as smartphones and PCs, semiconductor vendors need to be addressing the growth drivers presented by the new opportunities in the cloud, automobiles, and IoT sectors while rightsizing their current businesses to adapt to the new slower growth environment. The right partnerships and/or acquisitions and the ability to navigate to the new paradigm being promoted by the Chinese government's $50–100 billion war chest will be critical to a semiconductor vendor's success in 2016."
