How Cooperation And Trade Associations Push The Semiconductor Industry Forward

How Cooperation And Trade Associations Push The Semiconductor Industry Forward


The semiconductor industry is big – estimated to top US$339 billion in annual sales in 2017. What is more, many of the players that dominate semiconductor design and fabrication are also large. That is because building a state-of-the-art wafer fab today is an expensive proposition. Pure-play foundry TSMC, for instance, is spending US$3 billion for a wafer fab in Nanjing, China that will make chips using a 16-nanometer technology starting in the second half of 2018, according to the analysts at IC Insights. To take on projects of that size, a company typically must be large and have economies of scale.
