Industry Analysis & Industry Trends
During the five years through 2015, revenue for the Semiconductor Manufacturing industry is expected to grow 7.3% per year to reach $63.1 billion. The industry developed strongly in the years through 2011 but in 2012, as global economy slowed, industry revenue growth fell.
International trade is very important to the Semiconductor Manufacturing industry in China. In 2015, exports account for 52.8% of industry revenue, $33.4 billion. Competing imports total an estimated $33.5 billion and account for 52.9% of domestic demand. Although imports as a share of domestic demand have been decreasing over the past five years, technical and quality differences between domestically manufactured and foreign semiconductors continue to limit the industry's growth.... purchase to read more

Revenue for the Semiconductor Manufacturing industry in China has increased 7.3% annually from $44.3 billion in 2010 to an estimated $63.1 billion in 2015.
China is one of the largest manufacturers of semiconductor devices. However, major differences remain between the operations of local manufacturers and their foreign counterparts. Most domestic manufacturers are small in scale and manufacture low-end products. This is due to the lower technology levels generally employed by domestic firms.
The performance of Chinese semiconductors is relatively low but improving. Domestic firms remain unable to meet the needs of downstream industries that require various semiconductor types and performance, such as high frequencies, high speeds, high sensitivities and differing power... purchase to read more
