China's impact on the semiconductor industry -- 2015 update

Over the past dozen years, PwC has covered the Chinese semiconductor journey from the world’s smallest, to the largest and most influential region of worldwide semiconductor consumption. Since China has become an established player, we’re shifting our focus away from in-depth coverage on growth, and looking at other, related topics that impact both the Chinese and the larger, worldwide industry. In the near future, come back to read articles on topics such as IPOs, VC financing and government incentives.

For our long-time readers, you will still find a selection of updated figures and tables organized in the same fashion as our previous in-depth reports so you can keep track of the major growth trends that impact the worldwide market. Should you find something you need that is not included, feel free to reach out to our report author, Clements (Ed) Pausa at
