The semiconductors and other electronic component manufacturing industry comprises establishments manufacturing semiconductors and related solid device markets. Semiconductor products include integrated circuits, memory chips, sensors, microprocessors, diodes, transistors, solar cells and other optoelectronic devices.
The global semiconductor and other electronic component manufacturing market was valued at around $513 billion in 2017. Asia Pacific was the largest region in the semiconductor and other electronic component manufacturing market in 2017, accounting for 55% market share. China was the largest country in the market in 2017, accounting for 23% market share.
Semiconductor and related device manufacturing companies are increasingly collaborating with industrial manufacturing companies and technology companies. This has led to an increase in production of application specific integrated circuits (ASIC) for various electronic devices. For instance, in December 2016, global semiconductor manufacturer, Samsung collaborated with Tesla Motors, to produce integrated chips in its ASIC foundry facility for self-driven autonomous cars.
The top five companies covered are Intel Corporation, Samsung Electronics Co Ltd., Taiwan Semiconductor Mfg. Co. Ltd.,Micron Technology, Inc. and QUALCOMM Incorporated. Intel Corporation was the largest company in the semiconductor and other electronic component manufacturing market in 2017.
The countries covered are USA, China, Germany, Brazil, Japan, UK, Spain, Russia, France, Australia, Italy, India and rest of the world.
The semiconductor and other electronic component manufacturing market is segmented into Semiconductor And Related Devices and General Electronic Components.
Semiconductor And Related Devices are the components made out of material which is neither a good conductor nor a good insulator material and are useful because their behavior can be easily manipulated by the addition of impurities, known as doping.
General Electronic Components are the devices that works within an electronic system to have an effect on their associated fields.
