Semiconductor Market in Japan 2015-2019

About Semiconductor

A semiconductor IC is a device that can function as an amplifier, timer, and microprocessor and can store data. Semiconductor manufacturers fabricate these ICs based on the designs provided by fabless semiconductor companies. Though fabless semiconductor companies design and sell hardware devices and semiconductor chipsets, they outsource the fabrication process of these devices to semiconductor foundries. Semiconductor ICs find applications in segments such as communications, consumer electronics, computer, automotive, and industrial.

Technavio's analysts forecast the semiconductor market in Japan to grow at a CAGR of 0.61% over the period 2014-2019.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Semiconductor Market in Japan 2015-2019

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Semiconductor Market in Japan: Renesas Electronics, Sony Semiconductor and Toshiba

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Adamant Kogyo, Asahi Kasei Microdevices, DENSO, Fuji Electric, Mitsubishi Electric, Mitsumi Electric and Sanken Electric

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Portable electronic devices such as smartphones and tablets become obsolete after a short time. This is because of rapid launches of next-version models by vendors. The duration of the replacement-cycle period, on average, is 8-12 months. In the past, the replacement period was much longer. Because of the reduction in product replacement cycle time, the demand for semiconductor wafers in newly launched devices is expected to rise drastically, and this will increase the demand for ICs.”

According to the report, the availability of low-cost smartphones in Japan and the increase in the number of mobile broadband subscribers and mobile Internet users are expected to increase the shipment of smartphones by 2019. This is a significant increase on shipments in 2013 and is partly because of regional vendors introducing tablets in Japan. As the number of tablets sold by regional vendors increases, it follows that semiconductor ICs, an integral part of such devices, will undergo a similar rise in demand, leading to market growth during the forecast period.

Further, the report states that the market requires high capital investment, which is a major challenge for its growth.
