Report Code: ESR 0514 Report Format: PDF + Excel (Delivery in 48 Hrs)
There are various reasons for the growth in Mobile SOC’s such as the advancement in technology, the growing demand for smartphones and tablets and the decreasing demand for personal computers and laptops.

What are Mobile SOC’s?
A mobile SOC is an integrated circuit that assimilates all the different components of a mobile. There are various manufacturers of SOC’s, and hence these SOC’s may differ by combinations of components to fit the requirements. These SOC’s may contain different combinations of components, as each manufacturer will attempt to offer a unique selling proposition to the market.

What are the applications of Mobile SOC?
A mobile SOC can be used in various devices including smartphones and portable navigation devices.
These SOC’s have different technologies with 14nm being the latest addition, to the existing 12nm and 10nm models and, currently some companies aiming to launch 7nm technology in the near future.
Each SOC may have a different combination of components. All SOC’s contain a microprocessor, however some may contain an ASIC (application specific integrated circuit), a digital circuit, cellular radios, audio and video recorders, etc.

Mobile SoC Market

Market Research & Market Trends:
  • Micron, one of the largest chip manufacturers is cut off from the China market, and this will reduce the chip supply in the Chinese market and affect the dependent industries. More companies will seek patents in order to gain control of markets.
  • Qualcomm and Broadcomm have not gone through with the merger as major chip manufacturers are considering purchasing local manufacturers with a view to enter new markets. We may come across more mergers and new products when such mergers do take place. 
  • New SOCs will be launched in the market with 7nm technology. The SOC’s are getting smaller and more powerful every few years and we may see further sizing changes.
  • Samsung, which now uses in-house chips, will team up with ARM to develop chips that are faster than any other options in the market. More mobile manufacturers are beginning to develop chips on their own as they can enter a mature product market, and expand their business.

Who are the key players in the market?
The key players in the mobile SOC market are Qualcomm, Apple, Actions Semiconductor Ltd., Allwinner Technology, Samsung, Huawei, Intel and various other companies.
