ASIC Chip Market Outlook - 2026
The global ASIC Chip market size was valued at $14.87 billion in 2018, and is projected to reach $28.05 billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 8.6% from 2019 to 2026. Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) chip is a kind of microchip that is designed into a system to control or perform particular functions such as ROM manufacturing, microcontrollers, and IP cores. ASICs are used in a wide-range of applications, including auto emission control, environmental monitoring, and personal digital assistants (PDAs).
ASIC chip is usually simple in design and requires low power requirements for its computational operations. For instance, Bitcoin Miner is one of the most demanding application in ASIC chip as it requires low power & high -speed hardware. These chips are also equipped with features such as storing and retrieving data from the memory. They commonly work as part of a computer system along with memory and other input-output devices.
The main advantage ASIC chip offers is, it minimizes the size of a chip as it enables to perform the various number of functions of a circuit over a single chip. It includes a 32-bit microprocessor, memory blocks, and network circuits. Such type of ASICs are known as System on Chip. With the enhancement in the manufacturing and research technology ASIC chips are developed customizable, due to which they provide low flexibility for programming.
Programmable ASIC segment is projected as one of the most lucrative segments.
In May 2019, Marvell announced the sale of its Wi-Fi Connectivity business to NXP for $1.7 billion. That month, Marvell also announced its plans to acquire GlobalFoundries’ ASIC business for $650 million and buy Multi-Gig Ethernet and networking controller supplier Aquantia for $452 million as the company shifts its emphasis on data centers and related networks. There have been a half-dozen semiconductor acquisition announcements in 2019 valued at $1 billion or more, together representing 89% of the M&A total so far this year.
Data -Processing Systems segment is expected to secure leading position during forecast period.
