In 2015, the Global Semiconductor and Electronic Parts Manufacturing industry is expected to generate $701.1 billion in revenue, up an expected 1.9% in 2015. This will mark the sixth consecutive year of growth, rebounding from its 2009 slump at an estimated annual 2.7% in the five years to 2015. Demand for downstream consumer electronics, computers and industrial machinery skyrocketed in 2010, as consumers completed purchases they had postponed during the financial crisis, stimulating growth of electronic components.
This industry manufactures electronic components, which are typically packaged in a discrete form with two or more connecting leads or metallic pads. Connecting these parts by soldering them to a printed circuit board creates an electronic circuit. A semiconductor device is an electronic component made with semiconductor material, such as silicon.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
