The transition from DVD to Blu-ray players and recorders is creating a substantial opportunity for Blu-ray semiconductor companies, reports In-Stat market tracking firm. Already last year revenues for Blu-ray chips left behind revenues for DVD chips and there revenue share will only continue to grow.

“Semiconductors for DVD equipment continue to lead in unit volume. However, the higher priced semiconductors in Blu-ray equipment propelled Blu-ray semiconductor revenue ahead of DVD for the first time in 2009,” said Michelle Abraham, an In-Stat analyst.

Blu-ray player semiconductor content overtook DVD player semi content for the first time in 2009, and is projected to account for nearly 75% of the combined Blu-ray/DVD player semiconductor revenues by 2013.

The worldwide DVD player semi market will decline nearly 40% between 2009 and 2013 to $355 million, according to In-Stat. The average semiconductor cost per unit of Blu-ray equipment in 2009 is nearly 8 times that of DVD equipment. However, the average Blu-ray semiconductor cost will drop nearly 70% by 2013.

The leading providers of MPEG ICs for DVD and Blu-ray equipment include Broadcom, MediaTek, NEC, Sigma Designs, Sunplus and Zoran.
