Research and Markets: Global Network Processor and Co-processor Market 2011-2015 with IBM Corp. and Fujitsu Ltd Dominating
DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/w8lpbl/global_network)
has announced the addition of the "Global
Network Processor and Co-processor Market 2011-2015" report to
TechNavio's analysts forecast the Global Network Processor (News - Alert) and
Co-processor market to grow at a CAGR of 6.26 percent over the period
2011-2015. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is
the increasing popularity of network processors in access and metro
applications. The Global Network Processor and Co-processor market has
also been witnessing the development of multicore processors. However,
the increasing technological complexity of network standards could pose
a challenge to the growth of this market.
The key vendors dominaing this market space are Broadcom Corp., EZchip
Semiconductor Ltd., Intel (News - Alert) Corp., LSI Corp., and Renesas Electronics Corp.
The other vendors mentioned in the report are Applied Micro Circuits
Corp., Cavium Inc., Freescale Semiconductor Inc., PMC-Sierra (News - Alert) Inc.,
Marvell Technology Group Ltd., IBM Corp., and Fujitsu Ltd.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio's Networking team
said: ''The Semiconductor industry has evolved over the years to include
various types of end-user equipment and applications. Some of the highly
complex and high-performance computing systems use multicore
architectures and processors. Multicore processors consume less power
and provide a higher output per watt usage than conventional processors.
However, multicore processors and architectures cater only to a specific
set of markets. Therefore, vendors are in the process of developing
infinitely scalable multicore architecture processors that are both
scalable and flexible enough to address distinct markets and various
applications. The development of such processors depends on the type of
processing technology required and the evolution of different forms of
processing algorithms and applications.''
According to the report, one of the main drivers is the increasing
popularity of network processors in access and metro applications. In
recent years, chip vendors have begun to focus on lower speeds and have
also been successful in shifting network processing ASICs into access
and metro applications. Vendors have successfully developed
cost-effective product lines in digital subscriber line access
multiplexers (DSLAMs), base stations, and other applications.
