During the s, the Communists have divided the country into four piano manufacturing factories owned by the government: Although the piano industry in China remained primitive in the s during this decade, the Chinese government began to open its economy to foreign capital investment, first in partnership with government and later to completely private concerns.
Semiconductor Industry from to Whitepaper: Semiconductor Industry from to By Dr. Top-Level Semiconductor Perspective The global semiconductor market from through is shown in the following figure. While the overall growth of the semiconductor market will be lower than in the past, several areas will have significantly higher growth than the overall semiconductor market.
One example is the growth of IoT, and the semiconductor and sensor markets for IoT are shown in the following figure. The key semiconductors in IoT applications include controllers, wireless connectivity, and embedded nonvolatile memory.
The strong growth of semiconductors in IoT devices is driven by the need for more data, but it is important that the generated data provides value to users. A critical requirement in the IoT semiconductor market is ultra-low power ULPwhich can require using specialty wafer processes.
The IoT market consists of many segments, including consumer, automotive, medical, logistics, and home, that have high growth potential, but with the need for very low power consumption for mobile devices.
While new applications will continue to emerge, which will drive the need for new semiconductor products, it will take several years before semiconductor consumption becomes comparable to IoT. Automotive electronics is going through some major changes with advanced driver assistance systems ADAS having good growth potential.
In the future, many of the buying decisions on automobiles will be made based on the electronics content and the services that can be supported.
Approximately 90M automobiles are produced annually, with the expectation for a higher volume of automobiles manufactured worldwide as well as increased content of semiconductors per automobile.
The process technology for semiconductors in automobiles is also mainly n-1 or n From another perspective, the smartphone volume will be approximately 1. Smartphones primarily include 4G capability inand the production volume of 5G smartphones will begin in or These 5G phones will support a peak download rate of 1Gbps, which can support multiple streams of 8K video.
There will be the need for very high performance processing and very low power consumption. While high performance was the key driver for the adoption of new-generation semiconductors in the past, low power consumption combined with low cost will be the key driver in the future.
It is significant that China lagged the communications leaders by two to three years in the 3G protocol and closed the gap to one year for 4G. Now, China is planning to be the global leader in the 5G protocol, which includes infrastructures such as base stations, networking and transmission equipment, and smartphones.
The result is that the demand for advanced semiconductors will grow rapidly in China in the to time frame. The supply chain for semiconductors will need to address this radical change in the industry demand profile.
Memory supply and consumption will also primarily be in Asia, with modules that include memory chips and controller functionality.
In addition, memory component vendors will become memory solution vendors, where there will be the need for supporting software in the various types of application being addressed, such as cloud computing.
The result is that the composition of the semiconductor market will be significantly different in to than is the case at the present time.
Feature Dimension Trend The foundry market by feature dimension is shown in the following figure. The analysis of the foundry market by feature dimension shows that 28nm and shrinks, which include 20nm FD SOI, will also have high revenues through Most of the wafer capacity required for the 28nm generation of technology has been established, but additional capacity could be added in China, and UMC is supporting this by participating in a facility in Xiamen China.
The continuously large revenues for 28nm technology are being supported by the development of specialty wafer processes that can give low power consumption such as the ULP version from TSMC that will be used for IoT applications. An massive IP portfolio has been developed for 28nm, and strong design expertise has been established for RF, mixed-signal, and digital products.Global piano industry, which originated from Europe in the 18th century, has begun to shift to China since the late s.
At present, China has been the world’s largest piano producer, with the output for hitting , units, making up % of the global total.
Over the next two years, China will layoff millions of workers in underperforming industries such as coal and steel but will also create up to 10 million news jobs as part of its retrenchment. Part 1: The Recruiting Industry in Global Recruiting Trends 5. Global Average Global Recruiting Trends.
Competitive threats “What are the things that your competitors have done or may plan on doing Companies in the US and China are most aggressively.
The global beauty industry has grown at a steady 5% rate annually over the past decade—even through the past recession. While steady progress is certainly enviable, the rise of China's consumer class has presented something even more promising for beauty brands and their investors: a massive, fast-growing market of people who increasingly.
global metals and industrial minerals flows is viewed as a first step in the creation of comprehensive global MFA document- ing the historical and current flows of all of the four categories.
Overview China is the world’s top crude oil consumer and importer. For each day in , China consumed million barrels of oil, over a half million barrel increase from , according to the annual report released by China Petroleum and Chemical Industry Association (CPCIA).
