The wireless semiconductor business is set to expand considerably over the course of the next few years, as the number of interconnected devices continues to escalate. Analyst firm ABI Research has estimated that by 2021, wireless connectivity demands will lead to 10 billion in annual ICs shipments, excluding cellular communication chips. It also expects that Bluetooth® ICs will constitute nearly two thirds of this total. Clearly the continued roll-out of IoT hardware, emerging opportunities in automotive, plus of course the already established smartphone market, will all be contributing factors. It is also expected that there will be a very strong uptake in relation to both wearable electronics and body-worn medical technology.
