The global semiconductor industry is projected to have a robust growth over the next few years as per the data from WSTS. While the growth in the semiconductor market has been quite consistent over the last decade, the underlying ICs that power upcoming technologies have greatly evolved. There are four key contributors to this growth, and these will be guiding the increased demand of various semiconductor segments, mainly analog, ICs, sensors and processors.
The very first of these is AI. The rise in the mass fabrication of chips for specific AI tasks will directly be leading to the growth of the global semiconductors industry. AI functionalities are being used by all the big names in the industry from Samsung to Apple to IBM to China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology. The second in the list is related to AI’s trend, i.e., IoT. IoT connected sensors are increasingly used for various applications, starting from home automation, to medical, industrial, and various other commercial applications. Arising third in the list is autonomous vehicles (AVs). With Level 3 AVs estimated to be on the roads within some time, these vehicles will have to be equipped with high functional AI chips. In addition, last but not least is the AR/VR and 5G technologies. Both of these technologies would be driving the IC evolution as vid streaming is expected to rise rapidly with better and faster internet penetrations. All these factors will automatically lead to a surge in the semiconductors industry.
