Impacts and Recommendations

  • Chinese semiconductor companies will invest more in manufacturing equipment, processing technologies, key IPs and IC relevant services, providing opportunities for upstream semiconductor vendors
  • Supported by investors, Chinese companies will seek more M&A and equity investment opportunities in the global semiconductor market, resulting in quick business growth — the return will come from the government's financing support and IPO in the Chinese market
  • Foreign semiconductor vendors will see more challenges from local Chinese competitors, resulting in market share loss in China-specific markets
