Semiconductors Sector Scorecard - Thematic Intelligence

Semiconductors Sector Scorecard - Thematic Intelligence


Companies scoring strongly in artificial intelligence (AI) and geopolitics-related themes lead the thematic screen of GlobalData’s semiconductors sector scorecard. Indeed, AI and specifically AI chips, geopolitics, and China impact jointly account for 50% of the weighting of the thematic screen, reflecting both the growing importance of AI, particularly generative AI, in the technology industry and the impact of the ongoing US-China trade dispute. The list is led by companies with advanced AI products, such as Nvidia, Amazon, Tesla, and Alibaba, or capital equipment technologies essential to manufacture those advanced AI chips, such as ASML.

Key Highlights

Changes this quarter include the upgrade of AMD and the downgrade of Micron. The former was due to the launch of its first AI accelerator, the MI300X chip, to try to catch up with Nvidia's H100, which currently dominates the AI workloads in the data center, particularly among hyperscalers. The latter was by China from key infrastructure projects in retaliation for the various bans the US has imposed on the export of advanced chip technology to China and the participation of Chinese companies in US infrastructure.
