Global Semiconductor Foundry Market to Reach US$ 112.2 Billion by 2027, Impelled by Increasing Demand for Integrated Circuits

Published on Apr 07, 2022

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Semiconductor Foundry Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027," the global semiconductor foundry market reached a value of US$ 72.8 Billion in 2021. Semiconductor foundry refers to a fabrication plant where various devices, such as integrated circuits (ICs), are produced using the photolithography process. It mainly involves manufacturing and designing services on a contractual basis. It comprises clean areas wherein the environment is controlled for eliminating harmful substances and vibrations while ensuring ideal humidity levels and temperature within a defined range. The manufactured ICs are extensively used in the production of high-voltage components, logic gates, microprocessors, analog devices, computer memory, oscillators, power electronics and micro-electrical mechanical systems (MEMS).

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Semiconductor Foundry Market Trends:

The global market is primarily driven by the augmenting demand for ICs across the automotive sector. Coupled with the increasing utilization of semiconductors in the manufacturing of sensors and infotainment systems of vehicles and the growing popularity of electric vehicles (EVs) due to an enhanced focus on sustainable development among the masses, this is creating a positive market outlook. In line with this, continual technological advancements, such as the integration of backup cameras and blind-spot detection systems in electric vehicles (EVs), are further catalyzing the product demand. Additionally, the rising incorporation of semiconductors in communication technologies, including base stations and routers, is acting as another major growth-inducing factor. Other factors, including rapid urbanization, the widespread adoption of consumer electronics and home assistance systems, rapid adoption of automation technology across industrial sectors and extensive research and development (R&D) activities conducted by key players, are also positively influencing the market growth. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is anticipated to reach a value of US$ 112.2 Billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 7.44% during 2022-2027.
