The total wireless semiconductor market for analog and digital cellular handsets, analog and digital cordless handsets, pagers, wireless LAN products, wireless modems, and wireless infrastructure for cellular and paging systems grew to $15.3 billion in 1999. Motorola retained its No. 1 ranking with $2.0 billion in revenue, followed by Texas Instruments with $1.8 billion. The top 10 companies accounted for 70 percent of the total semiconductor market in wireless communications equipment. Digital technologies have reshaped the competitive landscape for semiconductor suppliers in the wireless markets and opened the door for relatively new companies in this market to capture sizable revenue in the digital cordless and cellular semiconductor markets. The advent of wireless data promises to continue to churn the competitive waters.
