Semiconductor Revenues Grew 25.7% in 2021; 2022 Forecast is up 5.9%

Thanks to industry– and supply-chain-wide shortages, semiconductor market revenues in 2021 reached almost $560 billion, breaking the $500 barrier by a wide margin and only five years after the industry broke $400 billion for the first time. Revenue growth was 25.7%, only the sixth time we’ve seen double-digit percentage growth in the past twenty years.

Intel Embraces the RISC-V Ecosystem: Implications as the Other Shoe Drops

On Monday, February 7, 2022, Intel Foundry Services (IFS), made a series of major announcements regarding the RISC-V architecture and ecosystem:

Wafer Demand Grows 18.5% in 2021, but Semico Research Expects Retraction in 2022

The chip shortage that impacted the electronic supply chain in the first half of 2021 continued to impact the second half of 2021 as demand for electronic products remained high. The outlook for semiconductor sales includes several areas of growth such as above-average demand in the automotive market and continued growth in AI and IoT. Auto sales are projected to remain above average into 2022 as supply chain issues continue to be worked out. Semiconductor manufacturers are rolling out new products incorporating artificial intelligence.

Automotive Design Starts CAGR to Reach 5.5% by 2025, says Semico Research

SoC (System on a Chip) Automotive applications are undergoing a renaissance in technology that looks at ultimately empowering autonomous driving.

ASIC Design Starts for 2022 by Key End Market Applications

SoC (System on a Chip) Automotive applications are undergoing a renaissance in technology that looks at ultimately empowering autonomous driving. There are several stages in this evolution and the industry is far from this goal today, but this effort has ignited the interest and imagination of the driving public around the world.  A new report from Semico Research, ASIC Design Starts for 2022 by Key End Market Applications, (SC106-22), forecasts that design starts in the automotive segment will reach 5.5% by 2025.

Automotive MOS Logic Wafer Demand to Increase 38.4% in 2021, Says Semico Research

Challenges on the semiconductor supply side have placed some constraints on semiconductor sales in 2021. As the demand for electric vehicles and AI products continues to penetrate the general consumer market, there are shortages for certain chips. Current semiconductor manufacturing capacity requires additional time to return to previous levels. Manufacturers are making adjustments, but in the meantime, some OEMs are also double-ordering certain products which makes the situation appear worse than it really is.
