Global Semiconductor & Electronic Parts Manufacturing
Over the five years to 2018, demand for downstream consumer electronics, automobiles, computers and industrial machinery rose, as global per capita income and internet connectivity increased. However, fluctuating product and input prices, as well as currency exchange rates, have led to oscillations in industry revenue, resulting in a slight slump in 2016, only to recover over 2017 and 2018 as memory prices soared. Overall, industry revenue is expected to increase over the five years to 2018. Over the next five years, the development of more powerful semiconductors and their increasingly diverse applications will bolster industry revenue. As technological advances increase demand for smaller and more functional products, industry operators will need to develop new technologies to meet these demands. Additionally, the rise of the Internet of Things systems, which connects homes, cities and factories alike, will likely increase demand for industry products.
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.
