Commenting on the report, an analyst from the team said: “The Global Semiconductor Foundry market is witnessing an increasing consolidation and strategic alliances between market players, which are expected to continue even in the future. Both existing vendors and new entrants prefer the acquisitive route to either enter the market or broaden their portfolio of offerings. For instance, Hua Hong NEC Electronics and Grace Semiconductor Manufacturing Corp. completed their merger in 2011. In addition, IBM, Global Foundries, and Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. have formed an alliance in the market. Since the market is highly fragmented and competitive, players are adopting strategies such as alliances, agreements, and mergers to sustain the competition.”
According to the report, one of the main drivers is the restocking of inventory by customers. As the demand for semiconductor devices is increasing, customers are replenishing the stock to keep pace with the current as well as near-future market conditions. For the past few years, this has been one of the major contributing factors to the growth of the market.
Further, the report states that one of the major challenges in this market is the fluctuating revenue of the Semiconductor industry. The major reason for this fluctuating revenue is the fluctuating demand for the products in this industry. Moreover, the inconsistency in the order levels of products is likely to lead to altering revenue, thus hampering profit margins for semiconductor foundries. The Semiconductor market has frequently experienced such downturns, thus impacting the Semiconductor Foundry market. In addition, excessive inventory with customers is another factor for these fluctuations.
The report also includes a discussion of the other vendors operating in this market. The other vendors in the market are Samsung Semiconductor Inc., Tower Semiconductor Ltd. (TowerJazz), IBM Microelectronics, Powerchip Technology Corp., the merged entity of Grace Semiconductor Manufacturing Corp. and Hua Hong NEC Electronics Co. Ltd., Vanguard International Semiconductor Corp., Dongbu HiTek Co. Ltd., Magnachip Semiconductor Corp., and WIN Semiconductors Corp (GaAs).
The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
