Commenting on the report, an analyst from the team said: “One of the main trends witnessed in the Global FPGA Market in the Telecom Industry is the inclination toward greener technology. Increasing levels of carbon dioxide in the environment due to the Telecom industry and rising fuel costs are drawing the global attention of many, both inside and outside the industry. In recent years, a greater awareness has evolved on how service providers can better control energy use and costs. Low power operations have emerged as one of the top marketing strategies among the telecom equipment manufacturers. An equipment solution that is capable of complying with the performance requirements, along with lesser power consumption, is expected to be the key differentiator between telecom equipment manufacturers, providing them a better shot at becoming a vendor of choice.”

According to the report, one of the main factors driving the market is insatiable demand for bandwidth in wireless networks. The wide adoption of 3G and LTE technologies in the Wireless Telecom segment increases the demand for wider bandwidth. The FPGA provides a trade-off among performance, integration, cost, and power efficiency, in order to provide complex IC designing.

Further, the report states that one of the main challenges is the divestment from FPGA technology by major customer. In 2012, Huawei used ASICs in a few of its equipment for the first time instead of FPGAs. Huawei was the last major telecom equipment manufacturer that exclusively used programmable logic, while its counterparts use a mix of both ASICs and programmable logic.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
