Wireless Chipsets for Mobile Devices

Mobile handsets, particularly smartphones, are expected to continue dominating the market for wireless chipsets, although significant growth is expected from other end-uses markets. Strong demand for ultra-low cost smartphones in developing countries is expected to fuel the baseband wireless chipsets market. LTE is expected to be the key driver of the global baseband chipset market. Meanwhile, the growing emphasis on graphics processing and multimedia support capabilities will drive demand for application processors. With the availability of a wide choice of smartphone operating systems as well as communication standards, manufacturers are faced with the difficult task of choosing the right assembly of chipsets to provide the best price-performance balance to their products. The need to differentiate, and offer better functionality and cost are some of the factors driving the choice between discrete application processors and discrete baseband processors or integrated baseband & processor processors. The market is shifting towards integrated baseband & application processors, with some of the leading OEMs planning to develop their own integrated baseband & application processors.
