PV 2012 - Expectations for the global solar market
Special Report | April 13, 2012
The solar market saw solar prices dropped drastically due to oversupply in 2011 and most solar firms across the supply chain suffered losses. Nevertheless, a significant drop in prices for solar PV systems stimulated new demand and total global installations still reached 26.1GW, a 30% growth on year. With growth is expected to slow to 9.4% this year, Digitimes Research examines the changing policies and demand trends in multiple solar markets, as well as providing a financial analysis of the concerns affecting the supply chain.
Key trends in the development of LED lighting technology
Special Report | April 3, 2012
Developments in LED lighting technology are taking place at a dramatic pace, heavily influencing the LED industry chain as well as final products. Component makers continually pursue the goal of raising the luminous efficacy of LEDs, while also addressing voltages that are radically different from that of main electricity, and adopting new packaging processes such as COB. This report serves as a primer for these issues as well as highlingting breakthrough developments in terms of capacitors, heat dissipation and smart LED lighting systems.
Trends in the touch panel supply chain, 2010-2014
Special Report | March 23, 2012
The touch panel sector was one of the few bright spots in the global tech industry in 2011, with production value growing 88% on year to reach US$12.56 billion. Shipments are expected to increase 25% in 2012 and though growth will slow through 2014, the strong market is driving competition among players in Korea, Japan and Greater China. This Digitimes Special Report examines the role of the different regions and the technologies and manufacturing methods being employed and developed in order to gain a competitive edge in the market.
Trends in the global IC design service market
Special Report | March 13, 2012
With the cost of developing a new semiconductor fab anticipated to surpass US$5.0 billion by 2015, more and more IDMs are adopting a fab-lite outsourcing model. The growth in the merchant foundry industry has also provided fabless IC design firms with access to reasonably-priced advanced-process capacity without the need for huge capital expenditure, and IC design has therefore grown as a share of the semiconductor market to 25.8%, up from less than 10% in 2000. This Digitimes Special report focuses on how the foundry sector supports IC design customers through design services and trends among the key industry design platforms.
Trends in the high- brightness LED lighting market
Special Report | February 13, 2012
Digitimes Research projects that the global high-brightness LED industry will see year-on-year growth of 13.4% in 2012, with output rising to US$10.1 billion. The main reason for this is the huge drop in MOCVD demand to just 200 units for the whole of 2012, combined with the weakness of the LED industry in the first half of 2012. These factors make it unlikely that the industry will be able to return to the high levels of growth seen in 2010, while installations of new MOCVD equipment are likely to be concentrated in the second half of 2012.
Network convergence in China, 2012
Special Report | January 3, 2012
Network convergence combining telecom, broadcast and Internet on a single platform to deliver voice, data and video content to devices has already begun in China and trial services are operating in a number of cities, but China's broadcast operators and telecoms have their own areas of business and run different services on their own networks and terminal equipment so issues remain. This Digitimes Research Special Report examines the major players, government guidelines and market segments shaping triple network convergence in China in 2012.
2012 tablet market forecast
Special Report | December 30, 2011
With a global economic situation that does not seem too pessimistic for 2012, demand for mobile computing will rise steadily and the price-performance ratio of tablet devices will improve. And there will be improvements to the software and hardware support for Android-based tablets. These factors all contribute to a 60% growth in tablet shipments to 95.10 million units in 2012. This Digitimes Research Special Report analyzes the market and forecasts the prospects for 13 major tablet brands worldwide for 2012.
