IHS: TI leads expanding industrial electronics chip market

IHS: TI leads expanding industrial electronics chip market

After the purchase of National Semiconductor boosted its market share, Texas Instruments has increased its lead in the industrial electronics semiconductor market, according to a report by IHS iSuppli.

Already the market leader in 2010, TI reinforced its dominance in 2011 as its revenue from the industrial electronics chip space grew to $2.2billion, up 24.9% from $1.8bn a year earlier. TI's market share last year climbed to 7.3%, up from 6.4% in 2010.

"TI owed its boost in revenue last year to the firm's acquisition of National Semiconductor at the end of the third quarter in 2011, which added $446 million to TI's bottom line for industrial electronics," commented Jacobo Carrasco-Heres, industrial electronics analyst at IHS. "Without the buyout, TI's revenue growth would have been flat."

The top ten companies in the report enjoyed a combined industrial electronics semiconductor revenue of $12.9bn, roughly 42% of a market worth approximately $30.bn. Occupying the no. 2 slot last year after TI was Infineon, with industrial electronics revenue of $1.8bn, up 24.1% from $1.5bn in 2010.

The report found that industrial electronics was the second fastest growing semiconductor market after automotive in 2011, up 9.3% compared to the 1.4% for the overall semiconductor space. Growth in 2012 is projected to moderate to 7.7%.
