2018 Semiconductor Manufacturing Research Review - ResearchAndMarkets.com

March 29, 2019 GMT

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar 29, 2019--The “2018 Semiconductor Manufacturing Research Review” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

In the today’s world of system and devices, computing technology has become a major part of people’s lifestyle, owing to the integration of various semiconductor devices such as sensors, chips, microcontrollers, circuits, displays, cells, and many others.

If closely looked, it can be observed that semiconductors have influenced every bit and piece of all the computer systems and has become core parts of their functionality.

With an increase in the applications of artificial intelligence (AI), computer systems are demanding efficient sensors and semiconductors chips to carry out their advanced functionalities for better system output.

According to Dr. Morris Chang, founder of Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company Limited, AI and machine learning technologies have created potential space for the development of semiconductor architectures such as Extreme Ultraviolet (EUV) lithography, 3D packaging, and some new materials including carbon and graphene nanotubes.

Additionally, semiconductor vendors have found good market opportunities with introductions of various display technologies such as LCDs, OLED, LED, transparent displays, and others. Flexible displays, curved screens, thin-film displays, and AMOLED (active-matrix organic light-emitting diode) are some of the core areas where semiconductor investors have adopted various new innovations and market development strategies.

For instance, in September 2017, Samsung and LG Electronics invested $30 million in CYNORA GmbH, a leading next-generation OLED developer in Germany. This investment is to promote advanced OLEDs such as flexible OLED, transparent displays, and others in the flexible display market.
