Report Scope

The report covers the market for semiconductor chips with regards to their user base across different regions. It also focuses on the major trends and challenges that affect the market and the vendor landscape. The report estimates the global market for marketing analytics in 2020 and provides projections of the expected market size through 2026.

Although silicon semiconductors are currently the most widely used commercial semiconductors, several other semiconductors are also being used. These components can be converted into transistors. Transistors are found in a wide variety of electronic devices, including computers, mobile phones, digital audio players and a range of other electronic gadgets.

Demand for the semiconductors used in wireless communication applications witnessed steep declines in 2020. Consumer preferences shifted toward the purchase of less expensive phones, reducing demand for semiconductors. In locations where 5G networks have not yet been established, telecom operators are likely to delay investments and instead focus on enhancing current networks to support growing data traffic.

At the same time, demand for the semiconductors used in wired communication applications increased. This was a result of several pandemic-related factors, including increased security upgrades for existing enterprise infrastructures as more employees began to work from home; increased fixed broadband usage in some countries, which resulted in increased purchases of cable/DSL and wireless routers as workers upgraded the internet connections in their private home offices; and increased internet traffic, which increased demand for switch semiconductors.

In addition, demand for the semiconductors used consumer electronics declined, while demand for gaming gadgets, audio equipment and some kitchen appliances increased, a trend that is largely due to consumers spending more time at home. The automotive semiconductor market contracted in 2020 as a result of a steep decline in vehicle sales. Demand for all industrial applications and end-markets declined in 2020 as corporations delayed infrastructure investments, cut production activities and reduced operations.

The global semiconductor chips market has been segmented based on type, end-user and geography. Based on type, the semiconductor chips market has been categorized into analog chips, logic chips and memory chips. Memory chips accounted for the second dominant share of the market.

Note: A large part of the report focuses on the global semiconductor chip shortage of 2021. The report analyzes the impact of this shortage across various end-users and key countries.
