Global Semiconductor Industry Development Forecast in 2012

Senior executives in the semiconductor industry have recently expressed their opinions that the semiconductor industry is likely to usher in the first ray of recovery due to the signs of a decline in business inventories. Due to the economic downturn, European consumers’ demand for electronic products was relatively weak, causing the semiconductor industry to fall into a recession.

At the Morgan Stanley Technology, Media and Telecom Conference in Barcelona, ​​Spain, British chip designer ARMCEO Warren? Warren East said on Thursday that many ARM-licensing companies have much better inventory than the previous quarter.

Also optimistic is the French chip maker STMicroelectronics CEO Carlo? Carlo Bozotti, who told investors, expects the company to reach its normal sales level in the second quarter of 2012. According to a survey by global technology research and consulting firm Gartner, the negative impact of inventory on the semiconductor industry will continue at least until the end of the year, but demand growth will occur in 2012.

Microchip, a US supplier of microcontrollers and analog semiconductors, announced its third quarter results earlier this month that the fourth quarter of 2011 will be the bottom of the industry's cycle. The industry believes that consumer demand for smart phones will help the semiconductor industry recover. ARMCEO East said that he expects smart phones to have significant growth in 2012, but also acknowledged that the recovery of the semiconductor industry will be affected by the economic situation.

ARM president is all? Tudor Brown said in Taipei that he expects the semiconductor industry to achieve single-digit growth in 2012. Market research firm IHSiSuppli lowered its 2011 global semiconductor market growth forecast to 1.2% from 2.9% in the previous month on Thursday. HSiSuppli said that the depressed economy will continue to affect the outlook of the semiconductor industry in 2012. It is expected that the strong growth of this industry will occur in 2013, but it also acknowledges that the semiconductor market has the possibility of bottoming out.
