Top 2 players in the wireless connectivity market:

Qualcomm held the leading position in the market for wireless connectivity solutions based on Bluetooth Smart, Smart Ready, Wi-Fi, and Cellular technologies. The company focuses on product launches and developments as part of its key business strategy to ensure its growth in the said market. In February 2017, Qualcomm announced 2 new SoCs-QCA4020 and QCA4024. Qualcomm Technologies was the first to announce a tri-mode SoC QCA4020, integrating Bluetooth Low Energy 5, dual-band Wi-Fi, and 802.15.4-based technologies, including ZigBee and Thread, while Bluetooth Low Energy 5 and 802.15.4-based technology has been integrated into QCA4024. The company also focuses on acquisitions to expand its footprint in different business segments and increase revenue. For instance, in August 2015, the company completed the acquisition of CSR PLC (UK), a leading fabless provider of end-to-end semiconductor and software solutions, for the Internet of Everything (IoE) and automotive applications.

Broadcom provides one of the broadest product portfolios containing state-of-the-art system-on-chip (SoC) solutions. The company is a designer, developer, and global supplier of products based on analog and digital semiconductor technologies within 4 primary markets: Wired Infrastructure, Wireless Communications, Enterprise Storage, and Industrial & Other. The company is well positioned to serve its customers globally through its design, technology transfer, and manufacturing phases across all geographic regions. Broadcom has a number of sales offices located in various countries, with a significant presence in Asia, which is a key center of the worldwide electronics supply chain. The company focuses on collaborations and selective M&A activities to expand its market footprint, strengthen competitive position, fill portfolio gaps, and, above all, strengthen Broadcom’s ability to create value and accelerate profitable growth. In April 2016, Broadcom announced the acquisition of its Wireless Internet of Things (IoT) business by Cypress Semiconductor (US) for USD 550 million. The deal resulted in the acquisition of Broadcom’s Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and ZigBee IoT product lines and intellectual property, along with its WICED brand and developer ecosystem. The acquisition will address the fast-growing IoT market.
