Semiconductor Machinery Manufacturing in Canada
As with much of Canada's manufacturing sector, industry operators are competing with foreign players that often have lower labour and production costs, as well as higher productivity and manufacturing capabilities. This translates to lower-cost imports, which have threatened the industry. However, there has been robust demand in domestic and foreign markets for industry products over the five years to 2017, fostering revenue growth. Over the five years to 2022, revenue is forecast to rise as new technology continues to drive advancements in semiconductors and the machines that produce them.
This industry manufactures equipment used to make semiconductors, more commonly known as chips or integrated circuits. This equipment includes wafer-processing equipment, semiconductor assembly and packaging equipment and other semiconductor-making machinery.
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.
