The ranking will be impacted by Renesas Electronics acquisition of Intersil Corp. for $3.2 billion and the acquisition by Analog Devices Inc. (ADI) of Linear Technology Corp. (LTC) for $14.8 billion.
The table shows analog rankings from 1995 from Gartner (then known as Dataquest), 2015 rankings from IC Insights, and our Semiconductor Intelligence (SC-IQ) forecast of 2016 rankings.
ADI will move up to number two with more than $4 billion in annual revenue behind TI with over $8 billion in analog annual revenue. In fact the ADI and LTC merger will not be completed until 2017, SC-IQ said Similarly Renesas and Intersil are combined for comparison in 2016 even though the deal will not be complete until 2017.
Infineon and Skyworks should be three and four, but there is a chance Skyworks could pass Infineon. Maxim and NXP should remain six and seven. On Semi will add more than $300 million in analog revenue with the Fairchild acquisition and move up from number nine to number eight. Renesas will add over $500 million in analog revenue with the Intersil acquisition and move up from number 10 to number 9.
If these acquisitions did count in 2016 they would create an empty spot in the top ten, which would likely be taken by MediaTek, which added about $400 million in analog revenue with the acquisition of Richtek Technology in October 2015.
