IDC sees global chip sales rising 4.9% in 2013 to $319B, a forecast that's nearly even with Gartner's 4.5%. However, the computing segment is expected to grow a mere 1.7%, as the PC industry's woes continue pressuring sales. The consumer segment is expected to grow a healthier 9.8%, as the tablet boom offsets slumping demand for consoles, DVD players, and other hardware. The communications segment is seen growing 6.5%, buoyed by surging 4G chip sales. (previous)
