The global mixed-signal IC market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.24% to reach a value of US$87,116.810 million by 2026, from US$69,670.713 million in 2019.
A mixed-signal integrated circuit is an integrated circuit that has both analog circuits and digital circuits on a single semiconductor die. Mixed-signal ICs are widely used in consumer electronics applications. Thus, the increase in penetration of mobile phones and other portable electronic devices has notably boosted the production of mixed-signal ICs. These ICs are frequently utilized for the conversion of analog signals to digital signals, thus digital devices can process them. Mixed-signal ICs are major components for various applications including, consumer electronics, security and surveillance, automotive, healthcare, communications, IoT, and industrial equipment. These ICs are broadly adopted owing to their dual competency of conversion of signals, i.e., digital into analog and analog into digital.
Mixed-signal ICs have grown intensely with the increased usage of 3G & 4G cell phones, increased adoption of data converters, microcontrollers, power management devices, mixed-signal SoC, and high investments in designing and manufacturing mixed-signal ICs. Moreover, the pervasive mobile environment and the rapidly emerging IoT (Internet of Things) are the major trends that are expected to provide significant opportunities for the mixed-signal IC market to grow. However, complexities in designing and manufacturing mixed-signal IC are the major challenge in mixed-signal IC market growth.
The use of mixed-signal IC in mobile phones and electronic devices is on rising, owing to the exponential growth of consumer electronics, telecommunication, and other industries. The introduction of 5G network and surge in demand for low-power consumption devices have boosted the mixed-signal IC market growth, globally.

The advent of COVID-19 harmed the global mixed-signal IC market. The immense downturn in several electronic industries has been a significant reason for the decline in the demand for mixed-signal ICs at a global level. The outbreak of the COVID-19 crisis resulted in uncertainty in the stock market, disruption of the supply chain, slowdown of business, and an increase in panic among customer segments. The overall impact of the pandemic impacted the production process of several industries, including semiconductors & electronics. Trade barriers further constrain the demand and supply outlook. Governments of different countries have already declared total lockdown and have temporarily shut down industries, which adversely affected the overall production process. COVID-19 has a huge impact on end-use and the economy. Electronics manufacturing hubs have been temporarily shut down to restrict COVID-19 spread among individuals. This has majorly affected the supply chain of the mixed-signal IC market by creating shortages of components and finished goods. Lack of business continuity has negatively impacted shareholder returns and revenue, which are expected to create financial disruptions in the mixed-signal IC industry. The impact of COVID-19 on the manufacturing industry has significantly affected the global economy. Electronic components, such as PCBs, LED chips & wafers, ICs, and other semiconductor devices, are majorly imported from China. The prices of semiconductor components have increased by 2–3%, owing to a shortage of supplies, due to the shutdown of manufacturing units. However, with the start of 2021, the market is expected to resume its supply chain operation.
