The latest analysis of the standard linear and data conversion ICs
market from IMS Research shows that US companies continued to dominate
the market in 2004.
Two thirds of 2004 global revenue came from Asia. Despite this, seven
of the top ten suppliers were American. Indeed US-owned suppliers
accounted for three-quarters of the global market. Analog Devices,
Texas Instruments and National Semiconductor remained firmly entrenched
as the top 3 suppliers.
“The standard linear and data conversion ICs market grew 24% in 2004,
compared with around 28% for the semiconductor industry as a whole”
said Peter Cooney, senior analyst in IMS Research’s analog and mixed
signal group. “The top five suppliers gained market share in 2004, some
seeing well over 30% growth in this market”.
