Global Semiconductor & Electronic Parts Manufacturing
The Global Semiconductor and Electronic Parts Manufacturing industry is expected to increase during the five years to 2015, as consumers continue completing purchases they had postponed during the financial crisis. In addition, there has been an increase in unit sales volumes of industry components, driven by the proliferation of new technology. Looking forward, industry revenue is forecast to increase, stimulated by falling selling prices, continued advances in technology and the growing use of electronics in various products. However, the convergence of some mobile devices, high competition and downward pressure on prices of downstream devices will threaten profitability.
This industry manufactures electronic components, which are typically packaged in a discrete form with two or more connecting leads or metallic pads. Connecting these parts by soldering them to a printed circuit board creates an electronic circuit. A semiconductor device is an electronic component made with semiconductor material, such as silicon.
This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
