As per the latest study by IHS iSuppli TI is the number one supplier of semiconductor devices for the industrial electronics segment followed by ST microelectronics and Infineon.
Texas Instruments boasted industrial electronics semiconductor revenue in 2010 amounting to $1.79 billion, or a 6.5 percent market share. TI has acquired another big semiconductor vendor National Semiconductor to better its hold on the industrial electronics market where analog and power electronic devices are hugely consumed.
IHS iSuppli has reported Overall five companies in the industrial electronics semiconductor arena had revenues in 2010 ranging between $1 billion and $2 billion, and the Top 10 suppliers enjoyed combined revenues of $11.45 billion- roughly 42 percent of a market worth $27.46 billion, as shown in Table below at the end. Semiconductor devices that were counted as part of the industrial electronics umbrella included discretes, optical, sensors and actuators, and microcontrollers, as well as integrated circuits governing the analog, microcomponents, logic and memory sectors.
Industrial electronics spans a variety of application ?elds in an extremely broad range, including such disparate areas as manufacturing and process automation, test and measurement, medical electronics, building and home control, energy generation and distribution, and military and civil aerospace. Revenue for semiconductors produced in the industrial electronics market grew an impressive 35 percent in 2010 after basically ?atlining in 2008 and even contracting in 2009-victim of the economic recession like many other segments. And while the market was clearly in retreat for the second half of this year, positive growth is still projected for all of 2011, with brisk double-digit expansion anticipated until 2017, as per IHS iSuppli.
STMicroelectronics is ranked number 2 with $1.59 billion in industrial electronics semiconductor revenue and 5.8 percent market share. In?neon Technologies with $1.42 billion in revenue and 5.2 percent of the market is 3rd in the ranking. While TI topped many of the subsegments, STMicroelectronics leads in manufacturing process and automation, and medical arena and In?neon a top supplier in the energy segment.
Processor vendor Intel with $1.21 billion-its industrial electronics revenue and 4.4 percent share of the industrial electronics market in 4th biggest vendor in this market. Intel supplies Atom and some of its other latest industrial grade CPUs to single board computers and industrial computers.
The other in the ranking follows: Analog Devices Inc. With 4.3 percent market share, ADI had revenue in 2010 amounting to $1.19 billion, Renesas Electronics Corp. of Japan, in sixth place; Toshiba Corp., also of Japan, in seventh; NXP Semiconductors Inc. of the Netherlands, in eighth; California-based Maxim Integrated Products, in ninth; and Mitsubishi Corp. of Japan, in 10th.
