Sensor/actuator and discrete sales surged – IC Insights

Shortages, tight supplies and rising prices have boosted sales of most optoelectronics, sensors and actuators, and discrete semiconductors (O-S-D) products, according to the latest report from IC Insights.

The report pointed out that the total O-S-D revenue in 2021 exceeded US$100 billion for the first time, reaching a record level, an increase of 18% to $104.2 billion compared with $88.3 billion in 2020.

According to the January Flash Report of IC Insights’ 2022 McClean Report service, fuelled by purchases of power transistors, diodes, and many commodity devices, total discrete semiconductor sales surged 27% in 2021—more than 5x the annual average growth rate in the last three decades—to $35.2 billion. Meanwhile, revenues climbed 26% in 2021 for sensors (including pressure and microphone chips, accelerometers and gyroscope devices, magnetic-field sensors and compasses, and temperature sensors), and actuators sales jumped by 31% last year. The total sensor/actuator market grew 28% in 2021 to a record-high $21.1 billion, says the report.
