Report Highlights

BCC Research forecasts a very promising future for the global market for non-cellular waveform chipsets in mobile phones.  This market was worth nearly $4.3 billion in 2010 and is expected to increase at a 17.8% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) to reach $9.7 billion in 2015.


This report presents the forecasts for non-cellular waveform markets in mobile phones for 2010 through 2015 on a volume and value basis.  The report also presents the size of the chipset market for various wireless individual waveforms employed in mobile phones.

The report restricts itself to mobile phones and does not include data cards, netbooks, e-book readers, and other mobile Internet devices that employ cellular waveforms for their operations.

The report covers the following non-cellular waveforms:

  • Bluetooth
  • Near-field communication (NFC)
  • Broadcast mobile TV (mobile TV)
  • Global positioning system (GPS)
  • Frequency modulation (FM) radio
  • Wi-Fi

The geographic scope of this report is the global market.  The following regions are considered:

  • Americas
  • Europe, Middle East, Africa (EMEA)
  • Asia-Pacific (APAC)

The market is also classified by the type of mobile phones employing these chipsets.  The following classes are considered:

  • Smartphones
  • Others

The report also forecasts the market size for the chipsets in terms of subscriber volumes.  The subscriber volume data is broken down based on the following parameters:

  • Non-cellular waveform types
  • Mobile phone type
  • Geographic region

The “Executive Summary” chapter presents a breakdown of non-cellular waveform chipsets sales revenues for mobile phones by individual non-cellular waveforms.

The chapter “Non-cellular Waveforms Put into Context” builds the case for non-cellular waveforms, compares the distinctions between smartphones and others, covers significant cellular waveforms, and traces the changes in mobile phones.

The chapter “Individual Waveforms and Their Prospects” covers the prospects of individual non-cellular waveforms, while focusing on how the particular waveform fits in with the mobile device ecosystem while considering the benefits and challenges offered by each waveform.

The chapter “Stakeholder Classification and Analysis” classifies the major stakeholders and analyzes the initiatives of major representative companies and institutions.

The “U.S. Patent Analysis” chapter covers innovative activities that impact non-cellular waveforms in mobile phones.  Patents are classified based on end-use applications and the architectural aspects of chipsets.  They are also broken down based on timing, assignee countries, and assignee organizations.
