Semiconductor Market Analysis

The Semiconductor industry was valued at USD 585.56 illion in the previous year and is expected to reach USD 1,087.12 billion by the end of the forecast period by recording a CAGR of 10.86% during the forecast period.

  • The expanding use of consumer electronics products worldwide drives this market's expansion. Additionally, new potentials for market expansion are being created by the development of artificial intelligence (AI), the Internet of Things (IoT), and machine learning (ML) technologies. Due to these innovations, memory chips can process vast data more quickly. The need for faster and more sophisticated memory chips in industrial applications would also increase during the projection period.
  • Global demand is rising dramatically due to AI, IoT, and wirelessly connected gadgets developments. For instance, Micron Technologies Inc. provides multi-chip packages and high-capacity memory supported by AI training and used in mobile, edge, cloud, and embedded devices. The bulk of these new discoveries come with a single system on a chip (SoC) to provide high degrees of integration. As it combines processors, memory, RF Transceivers, sensors, power management, and networking in a single component, SoC also enables the devices to run with excellent power efficiency and increased security.
  • By employing materials such as silicon (Si), germanium (Ge), and gallium arsenide (GaAs), electronics manufacturers have been able to replace traditional thermionic devices that made electronic items heavy and non-portable. Since the inception of semiconductor elements, there has been a high degree of miniaturization, making electronic equipment more compact and mobile. Silicon is considered the best among all the semiconductor elements available in the current market scenario.
  • The development of smart factories for semiconductor manufacturing equipment faces several difficulties, including those related to energy supply and availability, worker productivity, and the availability of the technological infrastructure required to make the transition to smart factories. However, these factories will negatively affect current employment and may raise unemployment rates.
  • Due to the fact that China is home to GM, Honda, Nissan, Renault, and Toyota car facilities, the unexpected Covid-19 epidemic there has had a significant impact on Asian automotive manufacturing. China's export of automobile parts to other automakers in the European Union is expected to decline by 2%, according to the UNCTAD. Similar to this, the US, South Korea, Japan, and many other countries might cause a 7 billion USD decline in car exports from these economies to the rest of the globe. However, the increasing need for remote work has significantly increased networking, communication, and data processing applications globally, which will eventually contribute to a moderate expansion of the semiconductor industry.
