The market for analogue semiconductor devices is set to grow 15 per cent in 2006, driven by consumer applications and telecommunications, to reach nearly Rs.1,69,645 crores ($37 billion), according to market research company Databeans Inc.

Databeans gave no detailed reasoning for the growth figure, which is above the average of leading market researchers estimated for the total semiconductor market in 2006. The consensus would put the overall semiconductor market growth at about 10 per cent. Databeans has predicted that the analogue chip market is set to grow 2 per cent from Rs.1,43,831.45 crores ($31.37 billion) in 2004 to Rs.1,46,353.2 crores ($31.92) billion in 2005, below the single-digit percentage growth that most market researchers have pegged on 2005.

The research firm said multi-market semiconductor devices will outpace application specific products in the coming year adding that this would bode well for U.S. suppliers.

Databeans' 2005 numbers are based on not-yet-public earnings reports for the top analogue companies, Databeans said as it posted its top ten ranking of analogue chip companies for 2005.
