This report provides data for China, Taiwan, Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, India and other Asia Pacific for all semiconductor products. Product forecasts are provided for each of these countries for revenue and unit shipments. Market share is also provided for all semiconductor product families for the Asia Pacific region.
Last year, the WSTS started reporting revenue for China as a separate region. This report provides data for China, Taiwan, Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, India and other Asia Pacific. Product forecasts are provided for each of these countries for semiconductors by product. Market share is also provided for all semiconductor product families for the Asia Pacific region.
Asia Pacific has quickly gained share in the semiconductor market in terms of demand and currently constitutes close to 60 percent of semiconductors shipped worldwide. The driving area in this region is China which now amounts to close to 30 percent of worldwide revenue. This tracker provides revenue forecasts by country for the Asia Pacific region for discretes, sensors, optoelectronics, analog, logic, memory, and processors. Market share for all of these product families for the Asia Pacific region is also included.
Amidst a worldwide economic downturn, Asia Pacific has been doing extraordinarily well in the global market for semiconductors. Other regions have been outsourcing their labor to Asian countries in order to reduce production costs, as the labor rate is often much lower. The region's growth rate is slightly higher than the growth of the overall market, with an average of 11 percent for revenue and 10 percent for unit shipments over the next five years. This tracker provides semiconductor revenue and shipment forecasts for the Asia Pacific region. Each product category is broken out and revenue and shipments are presented by Asia Pacific Country.
