Semiconductor Foundry Market Expected to Reach USD 184.94 Billion by 2028: Comprehensive Analysis Unveils Key Growth Trends and Forecasts

Dublin, Jan. 26, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Semiconductor Foundry Market Size & Share Analysis - Growth Trends & Forecasts (2023 - 2028)" report has been added to's offering.

Driven by Technological Inflections in IoT, AI, and Cloud Computing – Deep Dive into the Expanding Horizons of the Semiconductor Foundry Landscape The semiconductor foundry market, having attained a remarkable valuation of USD 127.79 billion in the previous accounting period, is now projected to flourish at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.67%, culminating in an estimated market size of USD 184.94 billion over the next five years.

This upsurge is predominantly steered by burgeoning technological advancements in the spheres of the Internet of Things (IoT), cloud computing, and artificial intelligence (AI), which form the cornerstone of long-term demand within the chip industry. Specifically, the indispensable role of AI is coming to the fore as it necessitates robust hardware to foster innovation, particularly in key domains such as logic and memory functions.

Projected Growth Supported by Strategic Government Partnerships and Industry Innovations

Strengthened by strategic international alliances, especially noteworthy across South Korea and the United States, the semiconductor foundry market is poised for a significant leap forward. These partnerships complemented by governmental incentives are propelling companies to reveal semiconductor production data conducive to unveiling and mitigating supply chain bottlenecks, while carefully protecting trade secrets. The application of advanced analytics remains a compelling catalyst for operational enhancements and profitability escalation across industries. Despite its clear benefits, the adoption rate of such strategies by semiconductor entities has been notably languid.

IoT Adoption and Connectivity: Primary Drivers of Semiconductor Demand

With high-speed connectivity making strides, alongside burgeoning cloud services and data analytics utilization, IoT presents itself as a sector with steady growth. For example, recent reports by Ericsson highlight a staggering rise in cellular IoT connections, envisaged to soar from 1.9 billion in 2022 to an impressive 5.5 billion by 2027, marking a CAGR of 19%. Concerns hover, however, around diminishing innovation which could indeed temper the enticement for new adopters and possibly slow the momentum of universal chip advancement.

Resilient Market Dynamics Post-COVID-19 Pandemic

The pandemic's initial onslaught saw reduced capacity usage in semiconductor foundries, fueled by the apprehension of declining chip demands across pivotal sectors, particularly automotive. However, the semiconductor market exhibited considerable growth in the latter stage of 2020 and persisted through 2021, manifested in a glaring supply chain gap incited by escalated demands and the lingering impacts of COVID-19.

Market Highlights: Consumer Electronics and North American Dynamics
