Top three trends as per ESDM
The internet of Things (IoT) – It’s an area which every player in the ESDM industry is excited about. IoT will be a key driver for growth and innovation in the semiconductor industry. Technology advancements, Infrastructure availability, high customer demand and supply push by semiconductor industry have enabled IoT growth. Telecom carriers are expecting huge growth opportunity in IoT, especially in in case of devices that require mobility such as ‘Connected Cars’. Global companies are investing in strategic partnerships with R&D service providers for experimenting with IoT product roadmap.
Shift towards mid/low range smartphones – Consumers today are moving towards cheaper smartphones without compromising on capabilities. This shift will lead to the need for innovating smarter and cheaper electronics.
Advancement and growth of the medical device industry –The medical electronic systems market is driven by growing demand for lower cost systems and the higher price tag of more sophisticated hospital equipment in developed country markets. The significant growth in lower cost wearable medical systems that wirelessly transmit a patient’s vital signs to doctors via cell phones or the Internet and fitness monitors that are used as activity trackers has led to a significant demand for smarter and more efficient semiconductors.
