Semiconductor Consumption in Asia to Top $200 Billion by 2010


SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., May 1, 2006 - Annual semiconductor consumption in the booming Asian market will jump from $136.5 billion in 2005 to $203 billion in 2010, reports In-Stat ( After the 2001 downturn, most of the electronic manufacturing from the US and Europe shifted to low-cost regions in Asia, resulting in Asia being the largest manufacturing base for electronics today, the high-tech market research firm says.

“The computing segment is the largest application segment for semiconductor consumption in Asia, while the communications and consumer applications are the fastest-growing segments for the Asian semiconductor market,” says Prakash Vaswani, In-Stat analyst. “Increasing demand for mobile phones, telecom infrastructures, digital TVs, DVD players, and digital audio will fuel the market.”

Recent research by In-Stat found the following:

China is the largest market for semiconductors not only in Asia, but globally.
Other Asian countries like India and Thailand are growing rapidly, but still have a long way to go before they can come anywhere near China.
Asia’s semiconductor consumption is expected to increase from close to 60% of the total global semiconductor demand in 2005 to 66% by 2010.
Recent In-Stat research, Semiconductor Consumption by Major Applications in Asia: Focus on China and India (#IN0602727ASM), covers demand for semiconductors in Asia. A section covers the semiconductor consumption market of different countries in Asia, including Japan. The main focus is on China and India, two of the fastest-growing economies in Asia, both with a large appetite for electronic systems. The research includes semiconductor consumption forecasts by industry through 2010.

This research is part of In-Stat’s Asia Semiconductor & Electronics Manufacturing Service, which tracks semiconductor consumption by application and by country. This service forecasts application segments in crucial Asian markets, including China, India, Japan, Korea and Taiwan. Semiconductor manufacturing is also addressed by country, and an additional step in identifying the largest markets for semiconductor consumption is presented with a look at CEM and assembly capacity by country. This research is an invaluable tool in identifying business opportunities in the increasingly important Asian marketplace.
