Microelectronics segment of CS industry flattening

Strategy Analytics says although RFMD and Skyworks have reported decreasing quarterly revenue growth, results from some CS wafer suppliers were very strong, boding well for growth throughout 2011.

After a strong rebound in the first part of 2010, Strategy Analytics finds revenue growth in the microelectronics segment of the compound semiconductor industry flattened in the final quarter.

The firm’s latest report, “Compound Semiconductor Industry Review January 2011: Microelectronics,” captures product, financial, contract and technology announcements for microelectronic companies such as RFMD, Skyworks, Hittite Microwave, Anadigics, Freescale Semiconductor, Microsemi and Cree for January 2010.

“Overall, the compound semiconductor industry rebounded strongly in 2010, thus slowing growth at some of the major suppliers in the fourth quarter should not be viewed with concern,” noted Eric Higham, Director of the Strategy Analytics GaAs and Compound Semiconductor Technologies Service. “The January announcements show significant product development activity that will serve to strengthen growth in 2011.”

Asif Anwar, Director in the Strategy Analytics Strategic Technologies Practice, added, “Results from some of the wafer suppliers were very strong and this also bodes well for growth throughout 2011.”

This viewpoint summarises January 2011 financial, product, contract and employment developments from major GaAs and silicon suppliers addressing a variety of commercial and military applications using GaAs, GaN, SiC, and complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) technologies.
