The following is the [XGNews]: IC Insights: Chinese mainland will exceed Japan’s first wafer production capacity for the first time this year. recommended by xgapn.com.
Recently, semidigest, a world-famous semiconductor analysis organization, released the August and September journal. The preface of this issue is “booming China’s semiconductor industry”. This paper cites the report of IC insights in June (Global wafer capacity report from 2021 to 2025).
According to the report, the Chinese mainland semiconductor manufacturers produced more than 1 billion chips per day in June, a record high. Chinese mainland capacity is still in the fourth place, behind China’s Taiwan region, South Korea and Japan.
By December 2020, China accounted for 15.3% of the global wafer production capacity, almost the same as Japan, and the installed capacity of wafers this year is expected to surpass Japan.
China’s wafer production capacity exceeded that of Europe for the first time in 2010, exceeded that of the rest of the world (row) in 2016, and surpassed that of North America for the first time in 2019.
However, the American Semiconductor Industry Association pointed out in a white paper released in July: “China’s semiconductor industry occupies a place in the highly competitive and technologically complex global market. China is expected to be competitive in the following areas: memory chips, mature node logic foundry and fabless chip design, especially for consumer and industrial applications. However, China may still lag behind in cutting-edge logic chips. EDA tools, chip design and IP , semiconductor manufacturing equipment and semiconductor materials are also far from global leaders. How long this lag will last remains to be seen. “
