More experienced audience will find a range of practical insights related to manufacturing processes, structural changes in supply chains, governments initiatives supporting the industry and cutting edge technologies.   


Semiconductors are the United States fourth most important exports by value. The industry is also critical to the economies of South East Asia, as Taiwan and South Korea, being responsible for a major part of their GDPs. China’s electronic industry is dependent on semiconductor imports, the situation that Beijing tries to change with a generous subsidies program. Meanwhile South Korean companies invest in semiconductor’s basic technologies aiming to cut their dependence on Japan, following on 2019’s trade tensions between the two countries. The development of the sector is further fuelled by the roll out of 5G, AI and IoT technologies. Automotive semiconductors shortage proved how critical it is to have access to semiconductor manufacturing facilities. This led to initiation of government programmes aiming to support the semiconductor industry build-up in South Korea, Japan, US and EU.

Semiconductor market & industry report

Selected key take aways from the report

– Component lead time for semiconductors manufacturing equipment increased from one week to two to three months. Power shortages in China, shipping bottlenecks and earthquakes in Taiwan are factors impacting the supply chain. If the situation continues, there are concerns over adverse impact on production in the second half of next year. 

 – As the demand for electric vehicles and autonomous driving increases in the automobile industry, the growth rate of the power IC market is expected to accelerate. A power IC is a power semiconductor device that controls power according to a specific system required by electronic devices. It is used to supply power and increase power efficiency in various industrial fields such as home appliances, PCs, mobiles, and automobiles. These include power management semiconductors (PMICs) that convert and control power into stable and efficient voltage and current, and driver ICs that control voltage and current with specific power.

– Strong demand for semiconductor chips in a wide range of sectors including telecommunications, computing, healthcare, online services and automotive has driven record growth in semiconductor equipment. Despite the pandemic and chip shortages, the semiconductor industry is showing strong resilience. Foundry sales reached $131 billion and semiconductors equipment sales $108 billion in 2021.

– As the semiconductor supply shortage continues, the launch of semiconductor prototypes developed by fabless companies is delayed by 3 to 6 months. This creates difficulties particularly for start-ups in the fabless industry, which must secure customers by releasing prototypes in a timely manner.
