Interface Battleground Report

Explore technological developments and their impact on wired interface technologies markets.

Future adoption of interface technologies will be influenced by a variety of factors, including the recently released USB Type-C connectors, which allow USB to accommodate other interfaces. USB 3.1, which includes Gen 1 and Gen 2, is forecast to reach 37% share of global device shipment by 2021. High-volume applications such as laptops, TVs and smartphones lead the way to growth in this sector.

The Interface Battleground Report from IHS Markit provides an updated view of the state of technological developments and worldwide adoption of interface technology solutions, such as wired video interfaces and wired data performance interfaces within the consumer segment. It contains analysis and insights on significant trends and changes in wired interfaces. The scope of this report covers the annual attach rate (adoption) for the above mentioned wired interface technologies in over 25 devices in these four product segments: Personal Computing (PC), Consumer Electronics (CE), Wireless (WL) and Automotive (AU) segments.

This topical report is accompanied by an Excel database file containing more than 70 tables showing base-year estimates for 2016 and detailed five-years annual forecast from 2017 through 2021. For the first time in this 2017 report edition, IHS Markit has added an analysis of the USB 3.1 interface by generations (Gen 1 and Gen 2). The edition also looks at the effect of wired interfaces on the connector and semiconductor markets in terms of revenues for each of the four product segments.

It includes analysis of each technology as well as competitive technologies, including VGA, DVI, DiiVA and HDBaseT.

Key issues addressed:

  • What is the five-year market forecast for wired interfaces in PC, CE, wireless and automotive?
  • Which applications will adopt/drop which wired interfaces over the next five years?
  • What are the primary benefits and drawbacks of each interface technology?
  • What is the impact of USB Type C on the overall interface market?
  • What is the impact of wired interfaces on the connector and semiconductor market?
