5G Driving Increased Demand for MLCC

5G Driving Increased Demand for MLCC
Multi-layer ceramic capacitor (MLCC) suppliers are gearing up for a record 2020, thanks to the wave of 5G technology set to head into production, including the upcoming iPhone 12. China is leading the way with orders for components needed to produce 5G devices early this year. Japanese firm Tiyo Yuden, one of Apple's suppliers, is expecting to benefit from the demand as 5G smartphones use roughly 30% more capacitors than 4G devices. The MLCCs manufactured by the firm are the building blocks of the modern world. The tiny components are made of metallic plates and are used in electronic circuits...

5G Expansion to See Chip Demand Rebound in 2020

5G Expansion to See Chip Demand Rebound in 2020
Global demand for memory chips is expected to rebound next year, driven by the spread of 5G services, according to new market research reports. 2019 saw chipmakers, such as Samsung Electronics Co. and SK Hynix Inc., suffer from a decline in sales revenue, on account of excessive inventories and lower demand from corporate customers. According to the latest data from research firm IHS Markit, semiconductor sales fell by 15 percent to US $111 billion in the July-September quarter, down 15 percent on 2018. Forecasts predicted that the world’s semiconductor sales would remain weak and post a 12 percent year-on-year sales...

Semi Market to Return to Growth Early 2020

Semi Market to Return to Growth Early 2020
Following several years of strong demand, 2019 will mark the global semiconductor market's biggest slump in 18 years. The largest decline was experienced in 2001, amid the burst of the internet bubble. The 2019 decline is pegged at 15%, the third largest annual drop since a 32% decline in 2001 and the 17% decline in 1985. An uncertain global economy and weakness in key demand are cited as the key contributors to the current downturn. Nevertheless, experts anticipate that 2020 will see the semiconductor market return to growth and continue to prosper. Memory chips are expected to hold the largest...
