Rising Path of China Semiconductor Industry

Penetration and Re-shape of Semiconductor Competition Landscape


China’s import on IC has surpassed energy and oil. IC consumption in China will be over 40% of worldwide market in 2018 by forecast. Memory is around 25% of the entire IC industry and applied in various applications across cell phone, laptop, servers etc. Currently, China has almost nothing on this segment but will invest tens of billions dollars in memory competitions through different approaches with strong determinations, including building fabs and acquiring them through M&A. Through this plan on memory, China will penetrate both Semiconductor and Storage segments. Another well recognized opportunity is the IOT market. Its impact to the lives of human being is huge and potential market revenue is gigantic. China has the fertile soil for IOT since it has the biggest number of internet users, the biggest auto and cell phone market, the biggest MCU market, and etc. Not only that, the policy maker is driving for Smart City/Society and IOT is the key. The semiconductor competition landscape will be re-shaped…
