Texas Instruments Inc. (TI) has increased its share in the power management & driver IC market by 1.1% during the 2009 downturn to hold a share of 10.5% and lead the market as per IMS Research.

The initial findings from IMS Research's 2010 study reveal that Texas Instruments increased its lead over the other top ten suppliers in the market, growing its share by 1.1% from 2008 to 2009. This came in a year where the market declined by an estimated 14.4% and many suppliers reported a sharp drop in revenues. It is estimated that Texas Instruments held a 10.5% share of the global power IC market in 2009, almost 3% more than the second-placed supplier Infineon Technologies.

Ryan Sanderson, senior analyst in IMS Research's Power and Energy research group commented, "An unpredictable and difficult 2009 owing to the economic downturn has driven a shift in rankings for the top 10 companies. STMicroelectronics moved up to 5th position ahead of Linear Technology, and Rohm and Intersil both moved slightly ahead of ON Semiconductor". Sanderson went on to note, "However, we're predicting the power IC market will grow around 20-25% in 2010 and it is very likely there will be major changes in the supplier rankings and market shares this year too".

Market shares by product type also show significant changes from 2008 to 2009, with some suppliers weathering the downturn better than others, depending on their strategy during the downturn/recovery period and the demand from the key end equipment markets and customers they serve.
