Silicon TV Tuners Drive Global Market Growth for Well-Positioned Semiconductor Vendors
The worldwide market for silicon TV tuners is analogous to the worldwide market for rotating hard disk drives (HDDs). It's a high-volume component business that sells to very demanding companies that manufacture a complex end-use product. Manufacturing volumes for Silicon TV Tuners are staggering, the growth rates are reasonable, but the annual value is relatively flat. It's a highly competitive market with just a few key players jockeying for position and scrambling to gain market share.
Forecast Thru 2017
TV sets consume more than half of all silicon TV tuners. Silicon Labs, NXP, MaxLinear, Sony and CrestaTech participate in the TV set business. By 2017, TV sets represent 55.2% of all silicon TV tuner shipments. Satellite STBs represented about 34.1% of all shipments in 2012, but gradually lose share to TV sets. Cable STBs provide a solid segment, but account for less than 13.2% of total shipments. Digital Terrestrial STBs still have pockets of growth, but these will not last long.
Worldwide shipments of silicon TV tuners into all four end-use product categories is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.8% through 2017. Silicon TV tuners have been in high-volume shipments into TV sets since late 2009. In 2013, the industry is shipping mature fourth generation products, and industry leaders are already ramping up fifth generation products.
Over the past few years, the key trend has been to improve integration of external components, which reduces system cost, improves performance, and provides slightly better margins for the silicon TV tuner manufacturer. As Cable TV operators evolve to compete with IPTV services, even low-end Digital Terminal Adapters (DTAs) are shipping with multiple silicon TV tuners to support rapid channel change functions. Each new application creates opportunities for product differentiation by silicon TV tuner vendors.
This report updates the market for silicon TV tuners as they are used in four end-use product categories. Silicon TV tuners have substantially replaced the traditional MO-PLL can types of tuners. The up-take curve for silicon TV tuners still has strong unit shipment growth.
