Wireless Technologies to Comprise 55% of Connectivity IC Shipments in 2018

Driven by the colossal Internet of Things (IoT) opportunity, wireless technologies – including wireless local area network (WLAN), Bluetooth, cellular and low-power wireless – will account for 55% of connectivity integrated circuit (IC) shipments in 2018, according to IHS Markit. Over the next five years, wireless connectivity will play an increasingly crucial role in market segments including automotive and transportation, commercial and industrial electronics, communications, computers, consumer and medical. The move to 5G will trigger significant investment across the value chain from 2020 to 2030, with US$2.4 trillion in capital expenditures during this time frame, IHS indicated. 5G will start by addressing enhanced broadband uses cases, but industry, not humans, will be the chief 5G driver. Most growth in new subscriber connections will come from industrial use cases rather than consumer markets. https://www.digitimes.com/news/a20180613PR201.html
