The latest publication of Global Smartphone Power Management ICs Market Research Report 2018 from QYResearch showed that, The global Smartphone Power Management ICs market is valued at 3254.6Million US$ in 2017 and is expected to reach 5374.5 Million US$ by the end of 2025, growing at a CAGR of 6.47%between 2017 and 2025.
Power management ICs have certainly become very important for the semiconductor industry and smart phone industry at large. There are two trends in the future: One is for lower cost, simple PMICs, many of which are being integrated into their host IC’s package, thus becoming a system-on- chip (SoC) (e.g., entry-level, single-chip cellphone ICs with an integrated PMIC). The other trend is to have more complex PMICs (for higher end stand-alone applications) become part of the chipset of the application.
Power management IC are high-precision products, this industry need a long product development cycle, design requirements, capital investment, complex technology process, with a higher threshold. Therefore, it formed a high degree concentration, monopolized by large semiconductor manufacturers.
