H.264 to drive MPEG video IC growth, In-Stat report says

MPEG integrated circuit unit shipments will grow from 649 million in 2006 to 1.6 billion in 2011, according to a new forecast from market research firm In-Stat.

Unit shipments for MPEG-2/4 ASP encoder and decoder ICs will grow slowly if at all in the future as H.264 encoder and decoder ICs experience much higher growth rates, according to In-Stat analyst Michelle Abraham.

Among the findings of the recent study, “MPEG Video ICs: H.264 in the Limelight”:

  • The advent of H.264 has given rise to startups like Ambarella and Horizon Semiconductor;
  • MediaTek was the top supplier in 2006 of MPEG-2 DVD decoder ICs; LSI Logic was the top supplier of MPEG-2 encoder ICs; and STMicroelectronics was the top supplier of MPEG-2 MP@ML set-top box decoder ICs and H.264 decoder ICs.
