The Semiconductor and Circuit Manufacturing industry is one of the top export industries in the United States. However, even as global demand for semiconductors rises, industry manufacturers are operating in a highly competitive global industry. Combined with price reductions, production outsourcing and international competition have prevented the industry from achieving higher revenue growth in the past five years. Although operators will continue to face strong international competition in the next five years, new opportunities in next-generation semiconductors and electronic inputs will encourage operators to invest in product development.
This industry includes companies that manufacture semiconductors and related devices and parts. Products in this industry include integrated circuits, memory chips, microprocessors, diodes, transistors and other optoelectronic devices.
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.
