Semiconductor sales to grow 11% in 2022

Growth was 25% in 2021

Experts from the analytical company IC Insights have prepared a forecast for 2022 related to the global semiconductor market. Analysts said all major product categories are expected to grow above average, and producer revenues for the year as a whole will be at record highs, despite slowing growth after last year’s massive recovery.

More specifically, total semiconductor sales in 2022 are projected to grow by 11% compared to 2021. In absolute terms, the market will reach a record high volume of $680.6 billion. In comparison, the market grew by 25% in 2021 as a result of the economic recovery from the 2020 virus crisis.

Semiconductor sales to grow 11% in 2022

Global chip sales are expected to rise 11% to a record $565.1 billion. The rest of the market, which includes optoelectronic devices, sensors and discrete elements (collectively referred to as OSD), is also forecast to grow by 11%, to a record level of $115.5 billion.

During the economic recovery in 2021, shipments of many widely used semiconductor products could not meet growing demand from system and equipment manufacturers, including automakers, who struggled to keep up with the pace of recovery in their own markets, analysts recall. According to IC Insights, chip sales grew by 22% year-on-year, OSD by 20%. This is an astounding growth considering that the cumulative average growth rate in the chip segment over the past 10 years was 7.4% and in the OSD segment 4.7%.

It remains to be added that about 432.0 billion chips and 889.3 billion OSD products will be shipped this year. In both segments, deliveries in quantitative terms will increase by 10% compared to 2021.

There are almost 1 billion 5G users Ericsson report shows

According to a report by Ericsson cited by The Verge, by the end of this year, the number of 5G subscribers in the world will reach 1 billion.

Of course, this is far from the performance of 4G networks, which are now used by about 5 billion people, but still this is a fairly significant part of the market.

There are almost 1 billion 5G users. Ericsson report shows that operators often ask for more money for such tariffs.

Of course, 5G adoption is far from uneven. In North America, about 35% of subscribers will use 5G networks by the end of this year.

At the same time, the report indicates that operators often ask for more money for the higher speeds offered by new networks. Dividing into corresponding tariffs is popular among operators in Western Europe, but overall, 25% of operators worldwide charge extra for 5G. And the average markup is 40%.

Ericsson believes that, unfortunately, this trend will continue for several more years, as operators need to compensate for the costs of developing a new network.

Is Apple Helping the Chinese Government Fight Protests? The company cut the AirDrop function in the Middle Kingdom

Is Apple Helping the Chinese Government Fight Protests The company

The history of protests in China is overgrown with new interesting details related to IT companies.

Is Apple Helping the Chinese Government Fight Protests?  The company cut the AirDrop function in the Middle Kingdom

Just weeks before the protests began, Apple reportedly made a major change to how AirDrop works, and only in China. After updating to iOS 16.1.1, AirDrop in the mode of receiving messages from everyone became possible only for 10 minutes, after which AirDrop simply turns off. In normal mode, AirDrop has no time limit, as there is none now and all over the world outside of China.

The fact is that AirDrop is one of the ways protesters communicate, and not only in China. AirDrop works locally in smartphone-to-smartphone mode, without relying on external networks, so it cannot simply be blocked or read data. But in this case, for some reason, Apple decided to seriously change the function, although it did not turn it off completely.

The CNBC resource also notes that the corresponding update was released a month after Chinese President Xi Jinping was re-elected for a third term.

Recall that Huawei smartphones have been noticed that they automatically delete videos that depict events related to protests in China.
