Top-10 Semiconductor Suppliers Post 17% Rise in 1H20 Sales
The first half of 2020 saw sales of the top-10 semiconductor companies rise by 17% compared to the same period last year, over 3 times the total worldwide semiconductor industry increase of 5%, reports IC Insights. (Source: IC Insights, 2020) All of the top-10 firms had sales of at least $5 billion during 1H20; two more than 1H19. It took $5.2 billion in first half sales to make it onto the list. HiSilicon was the only new entrant in the top-ten rankings, replacing Infineon. HiSilicon is the China-based semiconductor design division of telecommunications giant Huawei. More than 90% of HiSilicon's...

Memory, Power and AI Semis in 5G to Hit $15 Billion by 2025

Memory, Power and AI Semis in 5G to Hit $15 Billion by 2025
The 5G AI, memory, and power amplifier (PA) semiconductor market is rapidly transitioning from a nascent stage to a growth stage, according to a new report by market research firm Frost & Sullivan. This development is strongly driven by exponentially increasing data traffic, technological advancements leading to hardware performance and capability improvements, and the emergence of new use cases, the report says. Registering an unprecedented growth at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 74.3%, the market for 5G AI, memory, and PA semiconductors is projected to reach revenue of $15.03 billion by 2025, up from $536.9 million in 2019....

Chip Industry Suffers the Worst Slump in 2 Decades

Chip Industry Suffers the Worst Slump in 2 Decades
Last year, the semiconductor industry suffered its worst downturn since the dot-com bubble burst in 2001, causing industry sales to plunge by 32%. According to the Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA), 2019 was the industry’s worst annual slump in nearly two decades, with a 12.1% year-on-year drop in revenue to $412.1 billion. “Amid a confluence of factors, including ongoing global trade unrest and cyclicality in product pricing, worldwide sales of semiconductors were down considerably in 2019, falling 12% year-to-year,” commented John Neuffer, president and CEO of the SIA. Q4 2019 showed more promise, with a slower rate of decline in comparison...
