The scale of global semiconductors will reach $478billion in 2018

recently, World Semiconductor Trade Statistics (WSTS) released the latest global semiconductor forecast. It is actually not uncommon to use polycarbonate as the shell nowadays

according to their prediction, the global semiconductor market will increase to 478billion USD in 2018 and 490billion USD in 2019. Among them, 2018 increased by 15.9% over the same period last year. The above figures reflect the situation in the main fields: the growth rate of memory (memory) is 33.2%, followed by discrete (discrete devices) is 11.7%, and finally photoelectric parts is 11.2%. All regions are expected to grow as expected in 2018

according to their prediction, 2019 is expected to increase by 2.6% over 2018, of which photoelectric parts contribute the most, followed by sensors and separation devices

lower confidence than the forecast in August this year

in August this year, WSTS released their forecast for the semiconductor industry. They said that the world semiconductor market in 2018 was $477.101 billion, along the "Silk Road Economic Belt", an increase of 15.7% from $412.22 billion in 2017. Its growth rate fell by 5.9 percentage points from 21.6% in 2017; The market size in 2019 is expected to be $502.040 billion, with a year-on-year increase of 5.2%, down 10.5 percentage points from 2018

they said that the growth rate in 2018 mainly came from memory, analog circuits, discrete devices and optoelectronic devices. Among them, due to the year-on-year growth of 61.5% in 2017, the memory fell back to 30.5% due to the adjustment of product structure by many large memory manufacturers and the elimination of some low-end and small capacity products; At the same time, the increasing market demand for memory and some manufacturers' intentional control of production capacity and hoarding have jointly contributed to the global shortage of goods, forming a situation of rising prices in the memory market. In 2018, the price of NAND flash has tended to fall

analog circuits increased by 12.0% in 2018, among which advanced systems and power management analog circuits contributed to the growth and development of the industry; Automotive electronics and automotive applications make analog circuits 5 You can view and print the measured data Rapid growth; Communication and consumer applications also make analog ICs the largest users (data converters, mixed information ICs, etc.)

in 2018, discrete devices increased by 11.5% year-on-year, optoelectronic devices increased by 9.4% year-on-year, and sensors increased by 8.3% year-on-year (halved compared with 2017), all of which have a good growth period

wsts' valuation of the development of the global semiconductor industry in 2018 is also from low to high, which will be adjusted with the growth rate of market development. The estimated revenue at the beginning of 2018 is $437.27 billion (an increase of 7.0%) to $463.4 billion, an increase of 12.4% year-on-year, and the growth rate is increased by 5.4 percentage points; At the end of August 2018, it was raised to $477.101 billion, a year-on-year increase of 15.7%, and the growth rate increased by 3.3 percentage points

wsts also adjusted the development of the global semiconductor market in 2019 from low to high. The valuation in June 2018 increased by 4.4%, and the scale is expected to be $483.72 billion, still setting a new record; Now it is adjusted to a year-on-year increase of 5.0%, and the growth rate is increased by 0.6 percentage points. Among them, China and the United States are still the main consumers of semiconductor products in the world, accounting for 53.7% of the world (China accounts for 53.2% of the Asia Pacific region). Among the product categories, the sales volume of memory reached US $169.156 billion, which slowed down after the peak value for two consecutive years, with a year-on-year increase of 4.6% (stabilizing, and some enterprises are studying the "two-step" production process to set a development period), but it is still the first product category, playing the role of wind vane, thermometer and ballast stone
