Accounting for about ten percent of the semicondu ctor TAM, the industrial/medical sector is small compared with the compute, mobile, digital home and communications sectors, but revenues have now exceeded those in automotive for over five years. Accordingly, many semiconductor suppliers have been actively advancing their understanding of this diverse and growing market, to benefit from the opportunities offered.
Unlike other markets, the application base making up the industrial and medical sector covers a broad range, from factory automation, to test & measurem ent, to consumer medical. The supply chain is highly fragmented, with few OEMs covering the broad market and most focused on just one or two areas. This makes a tactical analysis of leading manufacturers of industrial and medical equipment a complicated and time consuming process for semic onductor suppliers to undertake comprehensively.
To support this need, this study to focuses on the tactical needs of semiconductor, software and related equipment suppliers looking to identify the key equipment types driving manufacturer revenues in the industrial and medical sector and who the leading OEMs are to focus resource on. Last published in 2012, the 2014 edition of the research builds on the work of the previous studies, using 2013 as the base year, with forecasts provided to 2019.
This study has been developed to be used as a companion report to the Industrial/Medical Semiconductor Service, which provides analysis of strategic trends for semiconductors in industrial/medical applications. Used together, the reports provide a comprehensive tactical and strate- gic analysis of the industrial and medical sector for semiconductor, software and electronics vendors.
