Global Semiconductors Market Analysis Report, 2019 - AI is Going to Emerge as the Next New Catalyst for at Least the Coming Decade

Dublin, Aug. 27, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Analyzing the Global Semiconductors Industry 2019" report has been added to's offering.

The year 2019 is a year of contraction for the global semiconductor industry, especially surrounded by intense economic uncertainties stemming from the US-China trade war. However, from 2020, the industry is again poised for strong growth as artificial intelligence (AI) is rapidly adding to global demand.

With technological innovation happening at a breakneck speed worldwide, the semiconductor industry is also no exception to this, and it can look forward to significant growth in the coming years following a rather weak 2019.

In 2018, global semiconductor sales stood at a total of US$ 481 billion, and over the coming four years, sales are expected to keep growing (albeit at a slower rate) to cross US$572 billion by the end of 2022.

Samsung, a leading player in the global semiconductor industry, has recently undertaken a massive capital spending on its semiconductor division and this is expected to drive overcapacity in the memory segment, likely causing a fall in sales of memory products in 2019. Nevertheless, 2020 will witness a recovery of the sector once again.

The global semiconductor industry is expected to be massively driven by the demand for chips that are related to the booming artificial intelligence sector. Much of this demand is likely to emerge from the industrial and automotive markets, with the automotive market expected to grow the fastest through 2022.

The introduction of the 5G technology and its growth in emerging markets is going to drive the use of semiconductors in the communications market while the continuing growth of video game consoles and handhelds, TVs, and digital set-top boxes will continue to drive the need for semiconductors in the consumer electronics markets. Growth in optoelectronic chips is also expected to remain healthy.

Asia Pacific will continue to lead the global semiconductor market and will remain the most significant contributor to the industry revenues. China is currently the biggest purchaser and importer of chips, and the development of the semiconductor industry is going to remain a huge priority for the Chinese government.

Overall, artificial intelligence is going to emerge as the next new catalyst for at least the coming decade for the global semiconductor market. Connectivity, sensing, and instant computing are going to be responsible for driving a dramatic demand for AI-tailored semiconductors in the coming years, with the Asia Pacific continuing to lead the industry.

Players analyzed include the industry stalwarts such as Texas Instruments, Intel Corporation, Samsung Electronics, SK Hynix, STMicroelectronics, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing, amongst many others.
