Opportunities in the VoIP semiconductor market are expected to drive Digital Signal Processor (DSP) growth. The market for VoIP semiconductor is growing with the continual replacement of traditional switches with VoIP technology. This is a prominent trend, particularly in Asia Pacific, where telecommunication companies prefer VoIP over cable systems. VoIP over cable will need DSPs in every subscriber’s home.
VoIP has the potential to change the way we communicate by converging voice, text and video in a cost effective manner. The growing market of VoIP communication platform is expected to boost the demand for the Digital Signal Processors (DSP).
The growth of the VoIP semiconductor market is shifting the revenue distribution in favor of the Asia Pacific region. As can be seen in above figure, this region’s contribution to the overall VoIP semiconductor market revenue was 54.3% in 2009 and it is expected to reach 68% by 2012. Much of the growth is anticipated to be triggered by India and China. Due to their low-cost, VoIP semiconductors are in demand in Asia Pacific.
IP Surveillance will drive the growth of DSP Chips during the forecast period
The growth in the Internet Protocol (IP) surveillance market is expected to drive DSP sales as the demand increases for new ICs with special functionalities (trigger automatic response and threat detection) to power IP video surveillance cameras and IP servers. In 2009, revenues from IP video cameras nearly doubled and touched $3.9 billion in 2010. In 2010, the global IP surveillance camera market grew larger than the conventional ‘Closed Circuit Television’ (CCTV) camera market. Meanwhile, the IP surveillance server market expanded to $1.3 billion in 2010.

The fast-growing market for IP surveillance video servers and cameras will have a positive impact on the demand for DSPs. Semiconductor technologies are incorporating new features in IP video surveillance servers and cameras. IP cameras are transitioning to digital, with companies manufacturing smarter
cameras which include features such as image tracking, alert system, image recognition, and response.
IP cameras incur lower costs during installation and enable remote monitoring, centralized storage and backup. Further, IP video systems enable broader system-level integration with industry specific solutions for traffic control, public safety, retail, industrial, education, and consumer applications. These advantages are expected to increase the adoption of IP cameras throughout the forecast period.
IP camera is typically used to integrate network interfacing functions, video capture and video processing. Thus DSP chips that support these tasks are among the most differentiated and lucrative semiconductor opportunities in the IP surveillance market. There is significant variation in requirements for video signal processors, ranging from minimal needs at the low end, to high-performance multi-core DSPs at the high end.
China will provide the much-needed boost to the DSP Market
The domestic market in China is the single largest contributor for DSP chip sales in the Asia Pacific region. The 3G network is well-established in China and this, along with low handset prices, created a boom in the mobile chipset market
in 2009. Considering this fast-growing market in China, the 3G mobile phone manufacturing, 3G chips and 3G-related components and content will all provide market opportunities for DSP sales. China 3G mobile phone sales volume reached 40 million units in 2010.
China is the second largest producer of semiconductors and is expected to grow further with the government committing to invest $50 billion in semiconductor related projects. The semiconductor market in China has grown at 17.8% to reach $80.1 billion in 2010 as compared to $68 billion in 2009. The government in China plans to spend $25 billion on wafer fabs for domestic chip manufacturing over the next five years. This will enhance the proportion of local demand met by domestic wafer fabs and diminish chip imports in China.

Digital Signal Processor Market in Consumer Electronics Sector to Gain Further Pace Going Forward
Since 2005, consumer electronics has accounted for a growing share of the
DSP market and this trend is expected to continue until 2020. The consumer electronics sector is a significant contributor to the DSP market after the communication sector. In the long-term, GBI Research estimates the DSP revenues in the consumer industry market to grow at a CAGR of 4.2% to reach $2.3 billion between 2009-2020.
Performance Vs Power – a challenge for Digital Signal Processor
DSP vendors are trying to achieve high performance while minimizing power consumption. High performance DSP chips are required, but a lot of processing means a lot of power consumed. There is a need for DSP chips that consume low power to achieve a given performance, allowing more performance to be contained in a given chip area. The main reason for using a DSP is to enhance computational performance for real time applications such as voice and audio-video communications.
Some DSPs are manufactured for low power operation, based on designing processes that are tweaked for low power consumption. The design of these chips leverage the fundamental process technology along with hardware characteristics that use the chip more power-efficiently, while still enabling the high performance required for advanced applications.
DSPs offer a good trade-off between all three aspects: power consumption, performance and flexibility. Performance and power are key areas of concern for DSP manufacturers to meet future technological requirements
