    Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

    The Semiconductor and Circuit Manufacturing industry is one of the top export industries in the United States. However, even as global demand for semiconductors rises, industry manufacturers are operating in a highly competitive global industry. Combined with price reductions, production outsourcing and international competition have prevented the industry from achieving higher revenue growth in the past five years. Although operators will continue to face strong international competition in the next five years, new opportunities in next-generation semiconductors and electronic inputs will encourage operators to invest in product development...

    Industry Report - Industry Key Buyers Chapter

    Industry concentration measures the extent to which major players dominate an industry. The largest four players are expected to account for 42.4% of industry revenue in 2017. Additionally, concentration is high in specific product segments. For example, Intel dominates the market for central processors in the desktop and mobile-computing market.

    Industry concentration for the US semiconductor market is increasing because there is a trend for larger participants to acquire smaller companies that have fewer resources. At the same time, US semiconductor companies are producing more of their semiconductor products overseas at in-house plants or foundries owned by others. This trend may reduce the advantages of scale experienced by vertically integrated designers and manufacturers.
