Semiconductor industry: mobile and consumer are the beating heart


These market segments generated $296 billion in semiconductor revenue in 2023, with an expected CAGR2023-2030 of 2.1%.

Semiconductor device revenue for mobile & consumer reached $296 billion in 2023, following a -15% year-on-year-setback. A 4% year-on-year rebound is expected in 2024, announces Yole Group in its new technology & market analysis, Semiconductor Trends in Mobile and Consumer 2024. Longer-term, revenues are expected to reach $383 billion in 2030. The overall growth rate for the 2018 – 2030 period is estimated at 2.1% CAGR.

Undoubtedly, the mobile and consumer electronics markets are pivotal for the semiconductor industry, representing $620 billion in revenue in 2023. This market further bolsters the software industry, particularly driven by tech giants. Moreover, mobile and consumer electronics constitute a significant portion of global trade, with countries worldwide actively engaged in fierce competition, including the United States, Europe, China, Korea, Taiwan, and Japan.

Pierre Cambou,Principal Analyst, Global Semiconductors at Yole Group, comments: “Market cycles for mobile & consumer semiconductor devices are primarily driven by the More Moore device types. These include DRAM, NAND, and processors. In parallel, the More than Moore device types, such as power, analog, discrete, optoelectronic devices, and sensors, are enjoying steady growth and expanding their revenue share.”
