MPEG IC Shipments 2 Billion by 2013

In-Stat announced that shipments of MPEG integrated circuits (ICs), which support compression and decompression of digital video, will reach two billion units by 2013.

“Compression technology continues to improve, offering lower bit rates and higher quality, as well as lower cost and power,” says Michelle Abraham, In-Stat analyst. “H.264 compression is finding a home in most new MPEG ICs targeting both line-powered and mobile devices.”

MPEG IC Shipments on Track to Reach 2 Billion Units, as Mobile Devices Drive Volume, Says In-Stat

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Feb 01, 2010 As consumers access digital video on more devices, applications for MPEG digital video compression technology are expanding, particularly in portable devices, reports In-Stat (http://www.in-stat.com). As a result, shipments of MPEG ICs, which support compression and decompression of digital video, will reach 2 billion units by 2013.

“Compression technology continues to improve, offering lower bit rates and higher quality, as well as lower cost and power,” says Michelle Abraham, In-Stat analyst. “H.264 compression is finding a home in most new MPEG ICs targeting both line-powered and mobile devices.”

Recent research by In-Stat found the following:

• Qualcomm was the leader in the mobile MPEG codec IC market for mobile handsets, while Zoran leads among “Other Mobile Applications,” followed by Samsung.
• MPEG IC market share differs among various types of line-powered consumer electronics, such as set top boxes, TVs, and DVD equipment. The leaders include Broadcom, MediaTek, NXP, Sigma Designs and STMicroelectronics.
• Among the key technology trends include:
◦ H.264 compression has superseded MPEG-2 in many line-powered applications.
◦ The Scalable Video Codec (SVC) extension to the H.264 is a major MPEG technology enhancement.
◦ With the standardization of 3D Blu-ray, multiview video coding (MVC), gains in importance.

The research, “Worldwide MPEG IC Market” (#IN0904827MMT), covers the worldwide market for MPEG integrated circuits. It includes:

• Examination of MPEG IC markets for broadcast and professional applications, semi-professional and industrial applications, and consumer electronics—both line-powered and mobile.
• Worldwide forecasts for multiple MPEG IC type for several application types.
• Profiles of key vendors
