The industrial semiconductors market was worth $43.5 billion in 2016 or 12.3% of the entire semiconductor market. Industrial electronics spans a variety of application fields comprising manufacturing and process automation, test and measurement, medical electronics, building and home control, power & energy and military and civil aerospace. Industrial electronics is a large fragmented market with more than 100 semiconductor suppliers and around 50 of these companies earned more than $100 million from this segment in 2016. It is an exciting market since it typically provides higher margins than other semiconductor applications and the mid- to long-term demand for industrial electronics is expected to soar.
