The Global Semiconductor Foundry Market size is expected to reach $183.8 billion by 2030, rising at a market growth of 7.4% CAGR during the forecast period.
The 130nm technology node represents a well-established and mature semiconductor manufacturing process. It is often used for applications where more advanced nodes are not required due to cost considerations. Thus, the 130nm segment registered $6,526.9 million revenue in the market in 2022. This includes applications like RF transceivers, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi connectivity chips, and other wireless communication standards. The automotive industry relies on 130nm technology for various components, such as microcontrollers, sensor interfaces, and control systems, especially in older vehicles and legacy automotive systems. Some of the factors impacting the market are Cost-effective manufacturing of semiconductors, Proliferation of IoT and edge devices, and Supply chain vulnerabilities.
The economic advantage of semiconductor manufacturing is achieved through the consolidation of semiconductor fabrication within specialized foundries, rather than individual companies establishing costly in-house facilities. Cost-effective manufacturing facilitates increased market participation, enabling a broader array of semiconductor companies, including fabless designers and smaller enterprises, to develop and bring innovative semiconductor products to market. Cost-effective semiconductor manufacturing also promotes global market diversification, reducing dependency on a few dominant players. This diversification is particularly important in mitigating supply chain risks and ensuring the stability of semiconductor production. Moreover, the proliferation of IoT and edge devices, which require low-power, compact, and specialized semiconductor components, has increased foundry services for these applications. IoT devices require various connectivity options, including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, LoRa, NB-IoT, and more. Semiconductor foundries are essential for providing customized, low-power, and efficient solutions that enable the widespread deployment of IoT and edge devices across various industries and applications. As these technologies continue to evolve and increase, the role of semiconductor foundries in supporting their development becomes even more critical. The growth of the Internet of Things (IoT) and edge computing significantly impacts the market.
However, As evidenced by the COVID-19 pandemic, the semiconductor industry relies on a global supply chain, making it susceptible to supply disruptions. Supply chain problems can cause lead times to increase and component shortages. Natural disasters, geopolitical tensions, and public health crises disrupt the global supply chain, causing semiconductor manufacturing shortages and delays. The semiconductor industry often relies on just-in-time inventory management, which minimizes excess stock. While this approach can be cost-effective, it also makes the supply chain susceptible to disruptions. Achieving full visibility into the semiconductor supply chain can be challenging. Companies lack transparency into sub-tier suppliers, making it difficult to assess risk. Supply chain vulnerabilities are a critical challenge for the market.
