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. However, because of an overall decline in ASPs, the worldwide annual value of this market will remain flat to slightly negative over the coming years. Regionally, there are still some strong areas of growth, particularly in the Asia-Pacific, CALA and Eastern Europe.
MRG provides market intelligence and five-year product forecasts for four of the end-use product categories that consume silicon TV tuners as follows:
- TV sets
- Cable TV set-top boxes
- Satellite set-top boxes
- Digital terrestrial set-top boxes
The forecasts and assessments are also segmented by region:
- Eastern Europe
- North America
- Western Europe
The worldwide market for silicon TV tuners is somewhat 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. The unit volumes are staggering, the growth rates are reasonable, but the annual value is relatively flat. It’s a highly competitive market with a few key players.
