China continues to be the dominating consumer of semiconductors, enjoying a compounded annual growth rate of 24.8% since 2000. This exponential growth is a result of two driving factors: the ongoing transfer of worldwide electronic equipment production to China and the above-average semiconductor content of that equipment. The worldwide technology trend towards mobility will no doubt continue to fuel this growth.
This, our latest report on the Chinese semiconductor industry, uses a variety of industry statistics as well as executive interviews to examine in-depth the current status of the semiconductor industry in China. We look at geographical and product category demand, highlight shifts in the semiconductor value chain, and provide the probable success of three newly revised integrated circuit (IC) production growth scenarios.
