The semiconductor market started shifting its centre of gravity to Asia during PC boom of late 80s, and the swirlwind of action now is in China. Asia consumed approximately 60% global semiconductor output in year 2014 and in that China’s share is more than 60%. China is not only the world’s electronics factory, and is also fast emerging as semiconductor device factory of the world. IC chips are now fabricated in China at 28nm, node at which the maximum sales of chips are now happening. China’s share in non-IC semiconductor business such as opto (image sensor), mems and discrete semiconductor business is continuously growing. This trend which started in 2013 continues in 2014 and forecasted to continue in 2015.
