Semiconductor Foundry Service Market in Taiwan 2015-2019

Semiconductor Foundry Service Market in Taiwan 2015-2019

About Semiconductor Foundry Service

Semiconductor foundries manufacture ICs based on the designs provided by companies. The majority of these companies are semiconductor fabless companies that design and sell hardware devices and semiconductor chipsets while outsourcing the fabrication process of the devices to semiconductor foundries. Semiconductor foundries are also known as semiconductor fabrication plants (usually referred to as fab).

Semiconductor foundries are of two types: Pure-play foundries and IDMs. This classification is used to differentiate between companies that perform in-house semiconductor manufacturing and fabless companies that outsource designs to third parties. Fabless companies outsource manufacturing to avail cost benefits.

Technavio's analysts forecast the semiconductor foundry service market in Taiwan to grow at a CAGR of 4.4% during the period 2014-2019.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Semiconductor Foundry Service Market in Taiwan 2015-2019

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Semiconductor Foundry Service Market in Taiwan: Bayer CropScience, Dow, DuPont, Monsanto and Syngenta

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Caussade Semences, DLF-Trifolium, KWS, Limagrain, Maisadour and RAGT

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The next big things for ICs are the IoT, smartwatches, and augmented reality. Foundries in the region are expected to manufacture ICs for these applications in the next 2-3 years. For instance, Apple is expected to sell over 20 million smartwatches in 2015, which will drive the demand for ICs. Also, foundry services such as TSMC are developing new processes like fully depleted silicon-on-insulator technology to meet the requirement for chipsets in smart devices. Chipmakers and foundry services that develop products using the new technology may gain traction during the forecast period.”

According to the report, the growing demand for ICs in premium cars and several industries that deploy advanced sensor technology will propel the growth of the semiconductor industry during the forecast period. The growing demand for ICs is expected to drive investments in manufacturing capacities. This leads to large-scale production of semiconductor chips, which are primarily manufactured in Taiwan.

Further, the report states that high capital investments are required for building fab facilities, expanding them, and managing operations. It becomes difficult for vendors to make such hefty investments, causing them to lose market share as customers move to updated foundry services.
