• CCD and CMOS Image Sensors
• High-Brightness and Standard LEDs
• Laser Transmitters and Pick-Ups
• Infrared Devices
• Optocouplers, Isolators, Optical Switches
• Digital Character Displays
• Light Sensors and Other Opto Devices

Optoelectronics remains the second-largest semiconductor market behind ICs.  This market continues to enjoy solid growth rates driven by the spread of image sensing, high-speed optical transmissions, and solid-state lighting.  For the second year in a row, total optoelectronics sales increased by 9% with higher growth occurring in lamp devices (+11%), light sensors (+26%), and infrared products (+22%).  Double-digit percentage growth was also seen in CMOS image sensors (+14%) in 2018.  Laser transmitters and optocouplers/optical switches both registered solid growth (+8%).  The total optoelectronics market segment is expected to grow by a CAGR of 7% between 2018 and 2023.



• Pressure Sensors (Including MEMS-based Microphone Devices)
• Acceleration/Yaw Sensors (For Consumer, Cellphones, Automotive, and Other Systems)
• Magnetic-Field Sensors (including compass chips)
• MEMS-based Actuators
• Other Sensors (e.g., Temperature, Humidity, and Gas Monitoring Chips)

High-volume applications and increased automation in intelligent systems are expanding the sensors and actuators market, but price erosion is expected to keep sales growth in check during the next five years.  Total sensor sales grew 8% in 2018 after climbing 15% in 2017.  The large and diverse actuator product category slowed to just 4% sales growth in 2018 after rising 18% in 2017.  Products built with MEMS technology now generate about 83% of total sensors/acuators sales and just over half of this market’s unit shipments worldwide.  Intelligent embedded control, automation in cars, and the Internet of Things are expected to help expand total sensors/actuators sales by a CAGR of 8% through 2023 with unit volumes increasing by an average rate of 10% per year.



• Power Transistors/Modules
• Small-Signal Transistors
• Switching Transistors
• Diodes, Rectifiers, and Thyristors
• RF/Microwave Transistors/Modules

The advent of ICs has certainly not put an end to growth in transistor products and other discretes.  Only weak economic growth and uncertainty have derailed the commodity-filled discretes market.  In 2018, shortages of power transistors, diodes, and other discretes boosted sales by 11% for the second year in a row.  More normal growth of 4% is expected in 2019 with demand/supply of devices swinging back in balance by 2H19.  Discretes sales are forecast to grow by a CAGR of 3% in the 2018-2023 period.  In power discretes, a revolution is underway with GaN and SiC technologies replacing silicon transistors and more diodes for higher performance.
