Second, the semiconductor industry could climb on the strength of rebounding chip sales. The majority of electronic parts manufacturers, such as Benchmark Electronics, announced that the financial target of the first quarter of 2020 is unachievable due to the impact of coronavirus. In April 2020, Integrated Micro-Electronics Inc. closed most of its operations at the production sites for safety and protection amid the COVID-19 outbreak.

Key Market Trends

Consumer Electronics is Expected to Hold Significant Share

  • This segment's trend has been to increase the adoption of various devices with an extended battery life of the device. Manufacturers are extending the battery capacity of their devices, and the demand for shorter charging is driving the market growth in this industry. The semiconductor and electronics industry is facing stiff competition from the ICs in this segment. The ICs have been the preferred choice in various devices, but they are highly dependent on semiconductors for their adapters. The smartphone is the major consumer of semiconductors in this segment. The smartphone has been a very competitive market in recent years. The manufacturers are developing charges that could charge the device in a very shorter duration due to which the current rating for these has gone from .5 milliamp to 5 milliamp.
  • The trend has been the same for the PC and wearable devices. The manufacturers want their customers to spend less time plugged in. The manufacturers, like OPPO, one plus, Motorola, Samsung, and Apple, provide these fast charge adapters out of the box, and fast charging is the key to their marketing strategy. The more heavy-duty power adapters are used for Laptop and Tv segments. The power adapters operate at a much higher voltage and current for these devices. Recently, U-blox, a provider of positioning and wireless communication technologies, has partnered with TransSiP and Matrix Industries to create PowerWatch 2, a GPS smartwatch that is equipped with energy harvesting technology.
  • The continuous miniaturization of microchips, along with the requirement for a more significant degree of functionalities, points to the importance of a 3D-based design framework across the semiconductor industry. ​The devices with upgraded features and increased performance are entering the market at regular intervals. The requirement for such enhanced functionalities has led to the inclusion of thousands of electronic components on a limited amount of space inside these devices. So, there is an increased demand for semiconductor device manufacturing. ​In June 2020, TSMC has announced the development of the 4nm node, and upgradation of the current 5nm process. The miniaturization technology will improve the performance and efficiency of the chips.
  • Moreover, NVIDIA, Intel, AMD, Apple, and other TSMC customers are expected to consider it for their future designs. The 5nm node has entered mass production, to the point that Ryzen 4000 is expected to be developed in this process. The company has also finished the 3nm process design framework. And the 3nm chipset is likely to go into production for testing in the first half of 2021. The company is also accelerating the development of the 2nm process. Furthermore, TSMC will even start the mass-production of the first-generation 5nm chips in the fourth quarter of 2020. The company is also in negotiation with the American government to build a 5nm factory in Arizona for a larger plan to make the United States independent of the East.

Asia-Pacific is Expected to Hold Major Share

  • The Asia-Pacific region is one of the significant markets for semiconductors and electronic parts manufacturing in the world, owing to its strong position in consumer electronics, semiconductors, and other telecommunications and equipment manufacturing industries. China has about 60-70% of the world's electronics production and assembly capacity. According to the Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA), the country's semiconductor sales grew from USD 82.4 billion in 2015 to USD 143.7 billion in 2019. China also leads the world in 5G technology, with full network coverage planned in 50 cities by late-2020. The consumption of semiconductors is rapidly increasing in China, compared to other countries, owing to the continuing transfer of global, diverse electronic equipment to China. The product is a necessary component.
  • Additionally, the space industry in China is evolving significantly, with an increasing number of private companies competing in multiple parts of the space industry.

The trilogy of schemes that entail an outlay of approximately USD 7 billion will help offset the disability for domestic electronics manufacturing, strengthening the electronics manufacturing ecosystem in the country. These schemes are expected to contribute considerably in achieving a USD 1 trillion digital economy and a USD 5 trillion GDP and increase the production of mobile phones and their components to around INR 10,00,000 crore by 2025 in India.
  • The outbreak of COVID-19 in January 2020 led to disrupting and halting global supply chains from China. Authorities in China took steps to reduce the mass migration of workers back to factories by shutting down operations in early February 2020. However, as of March 2020, manufacturers anticipated product shipments to be delayed further by 6-7 weeks. Recently, the distributors of electronics components observed an upsurge in orders for multilayer ceramic capacitors, tantalum capacitors, and chip resistors. They attributed such demand to the need for snapping up the inventory to keep production lines running. The distributors also released bids from electronics parts manufacturing in China, which is an implication of a massive shortage of supply. Moreover, the trade tensions between the U.S. and China had also forced semiconductor companies to shift their strategies.
