Infineon was the leading supplier of chips for industrial applications in a flat 2012 according to a sales ranking from market analyst Semicast.
LONDON – Infineon Technologies AG (Munich, Germany) was the leading vendor of semiconductors to the industrial sector in a market that was worth $32.3 billion in 2012, unchanged from 2011, according to Semicast Research (Waterlooville, England).

Infineon’s lead over second-placed Texas Instruments was cut to just a few tenths of a percentage point.

Both companies maintained a clear lead over the next largest vendors, STMicroelectronics and Renesas Electronics, with Analog Devices completing the top five.

Semicast’s definition of the industrial sector includes medical electronics and heavy transport — plant machinery, heavy truck and bus – but excludes military and aerospace electronics and marine communications.
The industrial chip market, which enjoys long-term steady growth compared with some sectors, has been larger than the automotive chip market since 2008 and is continuing to rise in importance, Semicast said.

Industrial applications lean on analog ICs, microcontrollers and power semiconductors and these three product categories account for almost two-thirds of semiconductor revenues in the industrial sector.

2012 industrial semiconductor vendor share ranking
Infineon Technologies   7.1%
Texas Instruments          6.8%
STMicroelectronics        4.6%
Renesas Electronics      4.6%
Analog Devices               3.8%

Top 5 total                     26.9%
Others                            73.1%
2012 Market Size: US$32.3 billion
