                                      Increasing Demand for Tablet PCs Will Boost Sales of IC Manufacturers
Tablet PC shipments                   The demand for tablet PCs has been growing at a very high rate, which is expected to result in
increased to around 17.8              growth of IC sales. Tablet PCs are increasingly serving as a substitute for traditional PCs, hence
million in 2010 against 1.2           high growth in demand for tablet PCs is observed. According to GBI Research, tablet PC
million in 2009                       shipments increased to around 17.8 million in 2010 against 1.2 million in 2009. The increasing
                                      demand for these devices will have a direct impact on the demand for various kinds of ICs ranging
                                      from processors, sensors, controllers, transceivers, power management, connectivity ICs and so
                                      on. The factors that will drive the demand for tablet PCs are the disruptive innovation in the
                                      hardware and software of these devices, the increasing demand from consumers and businesses
                                      for light data consumption devices, the availability of improved wireless networks and the falling
                                      prices of tablet PCs.

                                      Rise In Tablet PC Shipments Will Drive the Touch Screen Market
                                      Touch screens are making strong inroads into the PC market and increasing demand for tablet PCs
                                      will boost the sales of touch screens. Typically, the dollar content for a touch screen IC on a tablet
                                      PC is three to five times the average selling price of a mobile phone touch screen IC. Typically, a
                                      tablet PC touch screen IC costs anywhere between $15-$25 while a mobile phone touch screen IC
                                      costs around $6-$8. The tablet PC market is a growing market with volumes crossing 17.8 million in
                                      2010 and it is expected to exceed sales of 53 million units in 2011. The higher ASP of the tablet PC
                                      touch screen IC coupled with the high growth in their shipment volumes is a huge incentive for the
                                      manufacturers.
                                      The fully touch-based iPad2 from Apple has taken the tablet PC market to the next level and many
                                      big players have rushed to launch their devices as soon as possible. Samsung’s Galaxy Tab, RIM’s
                                      Playbook, HP’s TouchPad and HTC’s Flyer are some of the tablet PCs launched in the past six
                                      months. Apart from these companies many medium and small sized companies have also
                                      launched tablet PCs with most of them running on Android OS platform.
                                      Other players getting into the touch screen IC market include Texas Instruments, Broadcom Corp.,
                                      Chinese Pixcir Microelectronics and Taiwan-based Elan Microelectronics Corp. These companies
                                      make ICs that allow users to control tablets, digital music players or mobiles by touch – from a
                                      simple tap to more complex gestures that allow zooming, pinching and rotating.
                                      Sustainability of Stand-Alone E-Book Readers Is Questionable in the Near Future
                                      Devices such as mobile phones and netbooks with multiple functions will be preferred in the future,
                                      restraining the market for e-book readers. Mobile devices are equipped with multiple functionality
                                      and consumers now prefer to buy these devices, rather than purchasing single-function devices
                                      such as e-Book readers. According to statistics, most consumers read books on mobile phones
                                      and personal computers rather than on e-book readers. Some of the mobile phones such as
                                      Samsung’s Alias 2 are equipped with secondary E Ink screens which can be used for reading.
                                      Netbooks are also being launched with dual screens (LCD/E Ink) such as the Asus EEE PC that
                                      was launched in 2009.
                                      Connectivity ICs Will See A Boost As This Will Be A Major Differentiating Factor Among E-
                                      Book Reader Manufacturers
                                      Wireless connectivity increases the convenience of using e-Book readers. Connectivity is a major
                                      differentiating factor in the current e-book readers. Availability of 3G will enable the purchase and
                                      download of e-books from any place with a wireless signal. Wi-Fi has become a standard offering
                                      in e-Book readers to complement the wireless connectivity offered by 3G and now 4G or LTE. In
                                      order to give consumers a better user experience, most of the e-Book readers are expected to be
                                      equipped with connectivity features. With increasing competition within the basic e-book reader
                                      market segment, manufacturers are expected to add connectivity features, leading to the increase
                                      in demand for connectivity ICs in e-book readers.
                                      Cheaper e-Book Readers from New Players Will Increase the Price Pressure on IC
                                      Manufacturers
                                      Many less expensive alternatives are now being made available in the e-book reader market. With
                                      the rise in multi-function devices such as smartphones and tablet PCs, in the stand-alone e-book
                                      reader market the less expensive versions will witness growing revenues. This will lead to greater
                                      competition for established players such as Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Sony among others and
                                      will also impact the hardware suppliers of these devices. The display component accounts for the
                                      majority of the e-book reader’s bill of materials and the continuous pressure to reduce the prices of
                                      e-book readers will affect the pricing of displays.
