4G smart device chips are usually a group of non lean chip because of the size of the 4G LTE module is huge (relatively, at least). Sometimes that adjustment is too much! although it looks like things are changing because world’s thinnest 4G LTE module has launched soon. The growth of 4G smart device chip market is highly reliant on the growth of mobile communication market globally.
For purpose of in depth analysis, the 4G smart device chip market has been segmented on the basis of cellular standards, type and geography. Various types of cellular standards of 4G smart device chip includes FDD-LTE, TDD-LTE, and co-deployment with the 3G standard. By type the market has been segmented mainly into three categories they are like Cat3,Cat4 and Cat6+ which is known as LTE-A status . Moreover, this report also provide cross functional analysis of all the above mentioned segment across different regions such as Europe, North America, Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa and Latin.
Very low latency rate and very fast upload and download speed is driving the market of 4G smart device chip. Increasing bandwidth for all user for the purpose of downloading files, view internet page, and watching high definition videos is also one of the major factor that is driving the 4G smart device chip market.
Therefore, with the growing usage of wireless device like tablet and laptop, smartphone, the usage of 4G smart device seems to be very logical in 4G smart device chip market which is also the main factor anticipated to catalyze the growing demand of 4G enabled devices during the forecast period from 2017 to 2025. In addition, rapid technological advancement in component design and network architecture is also anticipated to increase the demand of 4G enable device in the upcoming years. In turn this is also projected to affect the market of 4G smart device chip in a positive manner during the forecast period.
In spite of many driving factors, the 4G smart device chip market is expected to show a shrink and fluctuation in growth rate because an Increase in the bandwidth means less coverage. Radios, cell tower, and even the satellites communicate using the radio frequencies in 6HZ frequency range which is being already crowded by other signals this is acting as a restraining factor for the global 4G smart device chip market. The growing demand for better mobile top speed ,higher frequency band and forward error correction is going to create significant opportunity for 4G smart device chip market in coming years. Apart from that faster packet switching and better component design is also acting as an opportunity factor for the 4G smart device chip market in the forecast period from 2017-2025.
By cellular standards, FDD-LTE segment will account the largest market share because of the unpaired spectrum and seamless voice and data service. TDD-LTE segment is projected to achieve exponential growth during the forecast period. TDD-LTE small cell in the higher bandwidth are one of the most strong solutions to solve the bandwidth loss challenge.
Geographically, the 4G smart device chip market is mainly driven by Asia Pacific region. Technological advancements in the 4G network technology along with development in the networking equipment which supports the LTE technology is driving the growth of the 4G smart device chip market. 4G network delivers fastest internet and feature like voice over LTE, which is expected to contribute to the growth of the 4G smart device chip market in this region.. This region is expected to maintain its dominance in the market during the forecast period owing to the presence of major developing 4G enabled device manufacturers like China, Japan, South Korea ,India among others.
Some of the leading players operating in the 4G smart device chip market includes Allwinner Technology (China), HiSilicon (China), Rockchip (China) , Leadcore (China), Intel (The U.S.), Qualcomm (The U.S.), Nvidia (The U.S.), MediaTek (Taiwan) , Spreadtrum (China) among others.
