Global Semiconductor Foundry Market 2014-2018

May 20, 2014

DUBLIN, May 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ – Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/zt98n5/global) has announced the addition of the “Global Semiconductor Foundry Market 2014-2018″ report to their offering.



The short replacement cycle of portable electronic devices is another major trend witnessed in the Global Semiconductor Foundry market. In the current scenario, portable electronic devices such as smartphones and tablets are becoming obsolete in a short span of time. The main reason for this is the quick succession of next-version models, which results in consumers replacing older versions of their devices with newer ones. Currently, the duration of the replacement cycle is 8-12 months; earlier, this used to be much longer. Reduction in product replacement cycle is fostering the demand for semiconductor ICs for use in new devices.



According to the report, there are several drivers in the Global Semiconductor Foundry market, of which one of the major drivers is the rising demand for smartphones and tablets. The main reason for the growth in the demand for these devices is their increasing adoption in emerging markets. This rising demand has subsequently created demand for semiconductor wafers, thus driving the growth of the market.



Further, the report states that one of the key challenges is the cyclical nature of the Semiconductor industry. As a result of this, semiconductor foundries often experience fluctuations in revenues, which adversely affect their profitability.



The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
