How will the semiconductor industry develop in the future?

The backbone of the modern electronic information industry lies in the integrated circuit sector, wafer prober with its progress directly impacting a nation's scientific and technological capabilities and economic growth. In recent times, driven by the swift advancements in science and technology and the broadening scope of its applications, we have witnessed a consistent upsurge in the integrated circuit industry. Particularly in domains such as artificial intelligence, automotive, industrial, and super-universe, we anticipate a further expansion of the integrated circuit market.

In recent years, sanctions imposed by the United States, Japan, the Netherlands, and other countries have affected China's integrated circuit technology industry. Consequently, domestic economic policies have been strengthened to provide increased social support and sustained large fund support for the development of this industry. As a result, there has been significant growth in China's integrated circuit sector. probe test This has been particularly evident with the growing demand in the domestic financial market and the acceleration of the domestic substitution process. With increased investment in research and development funds and enhanced efforts to foster independent learning and critical thinking skills among students, small and medium-sized enterprises in China are now able to independently produce critical components for this industry.

On the design side of semiconductors, both EDA/IP and chips play important roles in generating profit. wafer probing The size of the EDA/IP market is expected to increase alongside advancements in process technology, reaching approximately $21.5 billion on a global scale. Similarly, the semiconductor IP market is also predicted to continue growing, reaching $10.1 billion by 2027. When it comes to different types of chips, such as analog, power, and storage, each presents unique growth patterns depending on their respective applications. Analog chips are experiencing steady growth due to their widespread use in various applications. Power chips are facing high demand as new energy sources continue to emerge rapidly. And finally, memory chips have promising prospects thanks to the increasing need for computing power.

The semiconductor industry has seen a rise in links with China, as the mainland is becoming a hub for production, leading to an increase in localization rates and driving the growth of upstream equipment and material science. TSMC holds a dominant position in the global wafer foundry market, while China's traditional wafer foundry industry has experienced rapid and healthy expansion. This shift has resulted in the transfer of the global wafer foundry market to China. As domestic production lines continue to expand, there is an urgent need for increased localization rates, which will further accelerate the sustainable development of Chinese domestic upstream equipment and materials companies.

Closed semiconductor crops are recovering, and downstream recovery is imminent. As the needs of downstream semiconductor end customers change, the sealing measurement industry's technical route and operating speed will change. As smartphones, data centers, and high-performance servers continue to integrate, the chipset market will continue to grow due to its low cost, low power consumption, and miniaturization.

China's integrated circuit (IC) industry is currently presented with both favorable prospects and obstacles. Policy support and market demand are driving domestic enterprises to enhance their capacity for independent innovation and elevate the level of research and development (R&D) and implementation of core technologies. Alongside this, it is crucial to prioritize stability and risk management in the supply chain to decrease reliance on imported materials. Furthermore, fostering collaboration and communication with both domestic and foreign nations, learning from advanced international experiences and technologies, will effectively bolster the thriving growth of China's IC sector.
