Cahners In-Stat Group Expects Silicon Opportunity to Reach 400 Million USB Peripherals by 2002.
In 2002, the market research firm expects there will be nearly 400M PC peripherals supporting USB representing an IC Total Available Market (TAM) of more than $1B.
"USB will be the primary connection for human interface PC peripherals," said Scott Hudson, senior analyst for Cahners In-Stat Group's PC Technology Service. "Since USB technology can be integrated into microcontroller and other ICs, new competition with potential market share shifts will occur." The switch to USB is the inflection point in peripheral and IC markets that will result in market share changes.
According to Cahners In-Stat Group, the advantages of USB are true plug and play capability, faster data rate transfers and eventual elimination of the traditional serial and parallel ports. "The primary disadvantage has been the limited number of USB peripherals available," explained Hudson.
To realize significant revenues from USB, silicon and peripheral suppliers must provide several general devices, like hub and host controllers and some specific devices, like peripheral controllers and modem chip sets.
