A semiconductor chip or microchip is an integrated circuit consisting of a large number of transistors and wires positioned on a semiconductor wafer. Microchips (ICs) are the brains of the majority of electronic devices. They power computers, mobile phones, satellites, appliances, airplanes, microwave ovens, washing machines, iPods, automobiles and many others. Prior to the creation of the semiconductor chip, vacuum tubes were employed in electronic devices such as computers and radios. These devices were bulky and unwieldy; they consumed a lot of electricity and emitted a lot of heat.


Michael Faraday experimented with the semiconductor silver sulfide in 1833. He noticed that as the material was heated, its conductivity improved. Additional features of semiconductors were discovered by a number of other early experimenters. The transistor, which is essentially a miniature amplifier, was invented in 1947 at Bell Labs in New Jersey. This resulted in the invention of integrated circuits, which are now used to power nearly all electronic gadgets. Although silicon semiconductors are currently the most widely used commercial semiconductors, several other semiconductors are also being used. These components can be converted into transistors. Transistors are found in a wide variety of electronic devices, including computers, mobile phones, digital audio players and a range of other electronic gadgets.


Demand for the semiconductors used in wireless communication applications witnessed steep declines in 2020. Consumer preferences shifted toward the purchase of less expensive phones, reducing demand for semiconductors. In locations where 5G networks have not yet been established, telecom operators are likely to delay investments and instead focus on enhancing current networks to support growing data traffic.


At the same time, demand for the semiconductors used in wired communication applications increased. This was a result of several pandemic-related factors, including increased security upgrades for existing enterprise infrastructures as more employees began to work from home; increased fixed broadband usage in some countries, which resulted in increased purchases of cable/DSL and wireless routers as workers upgraded the internet connections in their private home offices; and increased internet traffic, which increased demand for switch semiconductors.


In addition, demand for the semiconductors used consumer electronics declined, while demand for gaming gadgets, audio equipment and some kitchen appliances increased, a trend that is largely due to consumers spending more time at home. The automotive semiconductor market contracted in 2020 as a result of a steep decline in vehicle sales. Demand for all industrial applications and end-markets declined in 2020 as corporations delayed infrastructure investments, cut production activities and reduced operations.


The global semiconductor chips market has been segmented based on type, end-user and geography. Based on type, the semiconductor chips market has been categorized into analog chips, logic chips and memory chips. Memory chips accounted for the second dominant share of the market.
