DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/2l56pm/semiconductor) has announced the addition of the "Semiconductor Foundry Service Market in Taiwan 2015-2019" report to their offering.
The next big things for ICs are the IoT, smartwatches, and augmented reality. Foundries in the region are expected to manufacture ICs for these applications in the next 2-3 years. For instance, Apple is expected to sell over 20 million smartwatches in 2015, which will drive the demand for ICs. Also, foundry services such as TSMC are developing new processes like fully depleted silicon-on-insulator technology to meet the requirement for chipsets in smart devices. Chipmakers and foundry services that develop products using the new technology may gain traction during the forecast period.
According to the report, Taiwan's semiconductor foundry service market is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 4.4% during the period 2014-2019. The growing demand for ICs in premium cars and several industries that deploy advanced sensor technology will propel the growth of the semiconductor industry during the forecast period. The growing demand for ICs is expected to drive investments in manufacturing capacities. This leads to large-scale production of semiconductor chips, which are primarily manufactured in Taiwan.
High capital investments are required for building fab facilities, expanding them, and managing operations. It becomes difficult for vendors to make such hefty investments, causing them to lose market share as customers move to updated foundry services.
