Research and Markets: Networking Market Tracker - Market Slowed in H2 2012

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/2wm5pf/networking_market) has announced the addition of the "Networking Market Tracker" subscription to their offering.

The overall networking equipment market has slowed in the second half of 2012 with many customers decelerating and reducing spending on hardware. Most of the large equipment OEMs are predicting that fourth quarter revenues will remain flat sequentially from the third quarter, due to exposure to Europe where service providers have cut spending and increasing competition from lower cost domestic equipment makers in China.

The networking IC market is primarily driving by the data center market which has performed much better than others during this period of economic uncertainty. There are wholesale service providers as well as retail providers, both offering high speed connectivity, cooling and power management for infrastructure equipment supporting the vast amount of digital media created daily. Most providers are reporting that revenues were up around 10 percent from the second quarter in the third quarter.

Key Topics Covered:

1. Significant Findings

2. Regional Forecast

3. Application Consumption Analysis

4. Product Forecast

5. Supplier Market Share
