Social and Infrastructure Analysis for the South Korean Automation and Electronics Industry
Frost & Sullivan, November 2006
Frost and Sullivan's automation and electronics industry is one of the leading manufacturing sectors in all industrialized and industrializing countries of the world. Due to its pervasive applicability, the industry is strongly linked to macroeconomic conditions. Over the years, the production base of electronic components and semiconductors has shifted from developed countries in North America and Europe to emerging ones in Asia Pacific and Latin America. Low labor costs and unsaturated markets, combined with steady economic recovery have made the Asia Pacific region attractive to semiconductors manufacturers. Home to some of the world’s fastest growing economies such as China and India, Asia Pacific is expected to exhibit rapid growth in demand for electronic components and applications in the future.
The South Korean semiconductors industry has grown consistently. Although the rapidly aging population is considered an impediment to sustained economic growth, it has the potential to create new growth opportunities for industry participants.
The South Korean Government’s policies are aimed at attracting foreign investment and promoting private investment. The Government has identified nanotechnology, semiconductors, and robotics among the key technologies of the future. Local governments’ provision of incentives to invite investments has resulted in the formation of industrial clusters and free economic zones. The Government and associated ministries are also promoting industry-academia collaboration and allotting R&D funds.
