iPad Energizes $4 Billion Semiconductor Opportunity

Cloud Computing Expo - The debut of the iPad promises significant opportunities well beyond just Apple.

The iPad promises to energize the emerging tablet PC segment, creating a potential semiconductor opportunity of over US$4.1 billion in 2014 reports In-Stat.

Other component vendors will capitalize on the new opportunity for batteries and displays, as well.

iPad Summit and iPad Expo by SYS-CON Events

SYS-CON Events announced on Monday that the first International "iPad Summit" (www.ipadsummit.net), will take place November 1, 2010, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, California.

The Summit is co-located with the 7th international Cloud Expo and the 10th international Virtualization Conference & Expo (November 1-4, 2010).

The iPad Summit is an intensive and content-rich one-day program designed to satisfy the growing hunger among software developers, as well as IT and "new media" professionals for a broad spectrum of sessions informing them what kinds of development options and opportunities the iPad provides.

The event will be renamed as "iPad Expo" (www.ipadexpo.net) in 2011 to include extensive "developer" and "new media" tracks in addition to its 2010 summit content.

“Tablets have quickly become a high priority for competitors across the value chain, including mobile operators,” says Jim McGregor, In-Stat analyst. “Even more important, is that the opportunity in tablets is complementary to other mobile devices, particularly smartphones and netbooks.”

Recent research by In-Stat found the following:

  • The potential unit Total Available Market (TAM) for Tablets is about 50 million in 2014.
  • Based on device Bill of Material (BoM) estimates, initial pricing of mainstream tablets should be in the $400-$500 range.
  • Thus far, only Apple and ICD have indicated carrier strategies, and only Apple offers an entire solution that includes content and applications.
  • Positioned between smartphones and PCs, tablets are attracting the interest of consumer electronics (CE) and computing OEMs.

The research, “The Rise of the Internet Tablet: The Keys to Success”, covers the worldwide market for Internet tablet PCs. It includes:

  • Examination of the potential for the internet tablet.
  • Analysis of bill of materials and forecasting of future trends.
  • Examination of products and strategies of some of the initial market entrants, such as Apple.
  • TAM figures for silicon and non-silicon components based on device forecasts and estimated bill of materials.
