In-Stat Publishes Worldwide MPEG Video IC Market Report

MPEG video ICs are used in many consumer electronics and video delivery systems around the world, and as those markets have grown, so has the need for MPEG video ICs, reports In-Stat. The first MPEG video ICs were designed for tethered devices that were powered via a wall outlet, the high-tech market research firm says. “Today the market for mobile MPEG video ICs in battery powered devices is greater than that of the market for MPEG video ICs in tethered devices,” says Michelle Abraham, In-Stat analyst. “The main reason for this change is the use of MPEG video ICs in mobile handsets.”

Recent research by In-Stat found the following:

  • Over 1 billion MPEG video ICs will ship in 2008
  • Though unit shipments of MPEG video ICs keep climbing, revenues will level off due to declining ASPs
  • With each new standard and market for MPEG video ICs, new MPEG video IC companies are launched while others consolidate

The research, “Worldwide MPEG Video IC Market” (#IN0804068ME), covers the worldwide market for MPEG video chips. It provides unit sales and revenue forecasts for global MPEG ICs by type through 2012. It also includes analysis of MPEG IC product markets and market share by manufacturer for 11 markets.

The price is $3,495 (US).
