Set top box (STB) is a hardware device, which receives a digital signal, decodes the signal, and displays it on a television. This process requires a computing device, which can convert digital signal to analog signal. Therefore, chipset is embedded in the set top box. This chipset consists of memory, input & output ports, and secondary storage. System on chip (SOC) contains digital signals, analog signals or mixed signals based on the requirement. Chipsets are developed using metal oxide technology.
Factors Driving Growth of the Global Set Top Box Chipset Market
Advancement in technology such as introduction of 4K TV’s which is in huge demand as compared to full HD in the entertainment industry is one of the major factors driving the growth of set-top-box market and subsequently the global set top box chipset Market. According to the Coherent Market Insights’ analysis, it is expected that there will be more than 58% adoption of 4K TVs in the U.S. alone by 2020. This TV requires 4K set top box that needs higher processing capacity than HD or full HD set top box. This results in increasing demand for set top box (STB) system on chip (SoC) across the globe.
