Chip Firms Expect IoT to Be Key Revenue Driver

eetimes.com, Apr. 02, 2019 – 

The internet of things (IoT) is long past the stage of marketing hype and has been driving meaningful sales for semiconductor firms for more than two years. Now, it's being seen as the key market for chip sales.

Leaders of semiconductor firms throughout the world ranked IoT as the most important application for driving revenue this year, according to a survey conducted by consulting firm KPMG.

Roughly two-thirds of the 149 semiconductor industry leaders who responded to the KPMG Global Semiconductor Industry Outlook survey ranked IoT as the top revenue-driving application over the next year. According to market research firm IDC, worldwide technology spending on IoT is expected to grow from about $745 billion this year to $1.2 trillion in 2022.

Wireless communications – which was the No. 1 revenue driver identified by respondents in the 2018 version of KPMG's survey – slipped to second place in the 2019 survey. About 60% of survey respondents this year named wireless communications as a leading revenue driver for the chip industry, while 56% named AI among the leading applications.
