Databeans Inc., a market research firm, expects the worldwide signal conditioning market at Rs.19,866.80 crore in 2006 will grow at a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10 per cent over the next five years and reach close to Rs.33,815.83 crore ($8 billion) by 2012. The firm said this lucrative IC market has attracted many new entrants, but the large analogue suppliers still dominate and that is the expectation moving forward.

Databeans defines signal-conditioning circuits to include amplifiers, comparators and data converters. These standard linear products are analogue ICs that alter real world analogue signal so that they can be used by digital processing circuits.

The top five signal conditioning IC suppliers control 80 percent of the market. Analog Devices Inc. leads with a strong portfolio of amplifiers and data converters, according to Databeans. Texas Instruments is second, growing quickly with significant share gains in all three product markets in 2006. National Semiconductor is the third largest supplier and like Texas Instruments, is gaining share specifically in the high performance data converter space.

Worldwide signal-conditioning market forecast
Databeans: The worldwide signal-conditioning market will grow at 10% CAGR over the 2007-2012 period.

The other entrenched players include Maxim Integrated Products and Linear Technology. Maxim has announced that the company will stop development of high-resolution high-speed ADCs, but the company will continue to be a player in the overall signal conditioning market. Linear Technology continues to advance in the signal conditioning market and has recently announced several new high speed ADCs using both sigma delta and SAR architectures.
