Affected by a slowdown in the global economy and sluggish demand in the consumer market, worldwide OSAT (Outsourced Semiconductor Assembly and Test) industry shipment value dropped by 1.93% YoY to US$28.893 billion in 2019. The first half of 2019 suffered a more severe impact as downstream vendors pulled forward in the second half of 2018 and overall product sales declined last year. Despite a mild recovery in the end market in the second half, the OSAT industry still registered weaker revenue performance in the entire 2019 than in 2018. This report reviews the shipment performance of the worldwide OSAT industry in 2019 and analyzes its development trends in 2020.
