Ethernet Controller Market Overview

The Ethernet Controller Market size is forecast to reach $14.9 billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 6.1% from 2021 to 2026. Ethernet controller is a component of computer hardware used for controlling the connection to wired networks. Ethernet is the method that most computers use to communicate with each other. Most computers connect with the internet through Ethernet. 
Ethernet controllers examine each packet of data to determine if it is meant for the local computer or another computer on the network. If it is meant for the local computer it decodes that information and relays it to the processor. If it is meant for another computer on the network it discards the information. It’s one of the most commonly used computer networking technologies in offices, schools and similar environments. The Ethernet physical layer provides improved media access control (MAC) solutions which are deployed across a number of industries.

Ethernet Controller Market Segment Analysis - By Function

The Ethernet PHY is a component that operates at the Ethernet physical layer of the OSI network model. Its purpose is to provide analog signal physical access to the link. An Ethernet PHY is designed to provide error-free transmission to reach distances that exceed 100m. There are many different variants of the Ethernet standard with respect to PHY which ranges from 1 Mbps to 100 Gpbs. Majority of the Ethernet applications use 10/100/1000-Mbps PHY. The physical mediums which carry data to the Ethernet PHY include twisted pairs, CAT5, coaxial cables, backplanes and fiber optics.

Ethernet Controller Market Segment Analysis - By Packaging

The most common Integrated circuit package types for larger critical components such as microcontrollers are the QFP (Quad Flat Package) and QFN (Quad Flat No-leads). QFP IC’s might have anywhere from eight pins per side to upward of seventy and are projected to grow at the highest CAGR of 7.8% through 2026. These pins on a QFP IC are usually spaced anywhere from 0.4mm to 1mm. On the Other hand QFN packages are tiny, exposed pads on the bottom corner edges of the IC. Sometimes they wrap around and exposed on both side and bottom. Many microprocessors, sensors and other modem IC’s come in QFP or QFN packages.

Ethernet Controller Market Segment Analysis – By Geography

Asia-Pacific is forecast to reach $4.7 billion by the year 2026 in the Ethernet controller market. It is due to growing usage of Ethernet controllers in consumer applications, servers and desktop systems in the region and increase in demand for VoIP solutions, gaming consoles and digital signage. China will remain among the fastest growing country in the regional markets followed by Australia, India and South-Korea. The deployment of solutions at the Ethernet physical layer using dynamic host control protocol will drive the market growth.

Ethernet Controller Market Drivers 

Increasing use of servers driving the market growth

The significant boom in demand for bandwidth as people work, stream and browse at home has resulted in a 30% increase in demand for internet servers. The role of emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence, IoT and analytics are increasing the use of servers. The increasing number of broadcasters offering direct-to-consumer propositions through OTT services along with traditional distribution services is increasing the growth of servers. This in turn leads to growth of Ethernet controller market.

Big data and cloud computing applications driving the market growth

As data-intensive applications like big data and cloud computing continue to rise the demand for Ethernet controllers are increasing. Huge terabits of data from these applications to data centres and vice versa travel every second and moving this data into data centres requires a robust infrastructure capable of handling the delivery of high-bandwidth data with high IP traffic to and from storage endpoints, servers, high-end switches and main switches. Ethernet controllers help connecting these devices using media access control addresses. Thus, rise in demand of these data intensive applications drives the market growth.

Ethernet Controller Market Challenges

Continuous updating of drivers

Drivers are essential piece of software that helps different hardware components work smoothly with computer. Ethernet controller needs their drivers to be updated on time for optimal performance and different operating systems need different software drivers to support Ethernet controllers. Time to time updation of Ethernet drivers helps software makes Ethernet card function properly. This is necessary to ensure that software is compatible with any new updates installed.  

Ethernet Controller Market Landscape

Product launches, acquisitions, and R&D activities are key strategies adopted by players in the Ethernet controller market. The Ethernet controller market is dominated by major companies such Broadcom Ltd, Cavium Inc., Cirrus Logic Inc., Comlab Telecommunications Inc., Marvell Technology Group Ltd., Microchip Technology Inc., Microsemi Corporation, Realtek Semiconductor Corp., Silicon Laboratories Inc., Texas Instruments Inc.

Acquisitions/Technology Launches/Partnerships

  • In Oct 2020, Texas Instruments introduced the DP83TD510E, an Ethernet physical layer (PHY) that is able to transmit 10 Mbps Ethernet signals up to 1.7 km through a single pair of twisted wires.
  • In March 2020, Ethernity Networks introduced its ENET-D, an Ethernet controller technology in addition to its ACE-NIC100 SmartNIC that efficiently processes millions of data streams and provides performance acceleration for network and security devices.
