Semiconductor industry overview
First the good news, silicon device demand continues throughout our world as computing power is increasingly required in all parts of life. Moreover, overall industry volatility has reduced as no one product is the dominant consumer of components at any given time as in decades past. On the downside, the fundamental assumptions of scaling according to Moore’s law are increasingly a factor in device design and manufacturing investment leading to new architectures, structures, materials, and methods. As of late, the industry has also consolidated significantly following the same path of past maturing industries. The result is a consolidated industry optimized for profitability, efficiency, and scale to serve the evolving end market needs.
As the industry matures, an external trusted advisor is often helpful to navigate new challenges, redefine processes and systems, and help manage uncertainty in the face of industry challenges. The Deloitte Semiconductor practice is able to bring the strength of our multi-service, global organization to help with the most critical issues while understanding the complexities, nuances, and uniqueness of the industry.
What is the future of semiconductor and IoT?
With a product so heavily commoditized, the semiconductor industry will need to diversify services to drive high profit margins and keep shareholders happy. So how will semiconductor companies innovate and grow? Check out our new report for Internet of Things (IoT) opportunities and strategies on how you can win.
