Japan and India are the other two countries that have large number of electronics and semiconductor manufacturers as well as end users.

Market Trends of SerDes market

A serializer/deserializer is a pair of functional blocks commonly used in high-speed communications to compensate for limited input/output. These blocks convert data between serial data and parallel interfaces in each direction. SerDes enables the movement of a large amount of data point-to-point while reducing the complexity, cost and power and board space usage associated with having to implement wide parallel data buses. Its use becomes especially beneficial as the frequency rate of parallel data buses moves beyond 500 MHz (1000 Mbps). In many applications, a SerDes can provide a very good solution for moving a large amount of data point-to-point within systems, between systems, or even between systems in two different locations. The most obvious advantages of SerDes are a reduction in pin count and cable/channel count. For early SerDes, these meant bytes of data could be sent across a coax or a fiber. Some of the companies invest considerably in research and development in order to incorporate new technologies and develop new products to gain market share. Additionally, these players are engaged in strategic partnerships with local players to expand their presence and gain market share in the region.
