Industry Report - Industry Analysis Chapter

Revenue for the Semiconductor Manufacturing industry in China has increased 4.6% annually from $53.2 billion in 2011 to an estimated $66.8 billion in 2016.

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. To ..
