In the post smartphone expansion era, power management ICs look to the automotive and industrial market to spur growth in 2017.
Power management ICs grew as key end application markets expand
Yole Developpement forecasts Power ICs will benefit from multiple key end markets to deliver a 3.6% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) from 2016-2022, in line with the general health of the overall semiconductor industry. The power IC market revenue, which was estimated to have been $14.5 billion U.S. dollars in 2016, which is forecast to reach $18 billion U.S. dollars in the year 2022.
In the power IC quarterly update, Yole Développement examines the entire semiconductor industrial as five major application end markets: automotive, communications, computing, consumer, and industrial. Even though there are common quarterly growth trends amongst these five major markets such as seasonality impacted by consumer behavior, the growth rate between them are largely independent from one another. As a result, it is crucial to understand the growth and decline of each end market individually for power IC suppliers. In the quarterly update, Yole Développement provides the consolidated tracking information for these five major end markets and provide quarterly forecasts from Q1-2017 to Q4-2018. Furthermore, each of the major end markets are divided into sub market segments. There are a total of more than 40 sub application segments in the annual forecast period of 2017-2022.

IN THE VOLATILE POWER IC MARKET, UNDERSTANDING THE APPLICATIONS MARKET AND THEIR IMPACT ON COMPONENT GROWTH ON A QUARTERLY BASIS IS ESSENTIAL
In additional to the end market impact on component growth rate, design approaches and device penetrations rates can also affect the component growth rates.
Linear Regulators are the simplest of power converter ICs that use a non-switching circuit (typically a variable resistor or divider network) to provide voltage conversion. If the input and output voltage differs less than 0.7V, they are classified as Low Drop-Out (LDO) voltage regulators. Linear regulators have higher losses and heat generation. However, due to the lack of a switching circuit, linear regulators are favorable in noise sensitive applications.
Switching regulators replaces variable resistance of a control transistor with a switch that is either fully on or completely off. The output is determine by the topology and the duty cycle of the power switch. Switching regulators are the preferred design choice for high efficiency power conversions.
Voltage reference integrated circuits provide a constant voltage within a system irrespective of variations in output current or input voltage.
Battery management ICs are devices that source and management the batteries in portable applications, typical products include battery chargers, monitors, gauges, protection, and authentication.
Other power ICs include all other products used in the conversion, management, and distribution of power but do not fall into any of the categories provided above. For example, multi-channel power management ICs, Power-Over-Ethernet controllers, PFC controller, etc.
