Political & Policy Analysis for the South Korean Automation and Electronics Industry
Frost & Sullivan, December 2006, Pages: 25
The 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 and is also considered a leading indicator of the economic health of a country. Owing to its strong influence on the economy and other industries, trends in this space are conscientiously tracked. 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.
South Korea has been one of the leading semiconductor producers and to sustain this position, the Government has framed favorable and far-sighted policies. There has been special focus on the chip-designing segment, as it influences South Korea’s emergence as a major knowledge economy. Robotics is another promising sector, considering the demographic transition and technology development; it offers various investment opportunities for participants in different parts of the industry chain.
The South Korean Government’s policies are aimed at attracting foreign investments and promoting private investment. The Government has identified nanotechnology, semiconductors, and robotics amongst the key technologies of the future. The trade-related policies are expected to open up new markets for the industry. Local governments’ provision of incentives to invite investments has resulted in the formation of industrial clusters and free economic zones. The Government and the associated ministries are also promoting industry-academia collaboration and allotting R&D funds.
