This article discusses Semiconductor Billings By Region split across Americas, Japan, Europe, and Asia Pacific from 2003 onwards.
The Semiconductor Billings By Region is split across the following areas:
|Region||Q1 2020||Q1 2021||YoY Growth|
(all figures in billions, except percentages)
In Q1 2021, there was a global shortage of semiconductor chips as the supply chain was affected because of the lockdown restrictions imposed in most parts of the world due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, automobile companies like General Motors, Ford, Volkswagen, and many others were forced to halt the production of new vehicles due to the shortage of semiconductor chips.
The Consumer Electronics industry also suffered because of this shortage as companies like Apple, LG, DELL, and many others had to delay the launch of their new products as production was affected because of the shortage of the semiconductor chips.
In the Americas, the semiconductor billings increased from $22.11 billion in Q1 2020 to $24.15 billion in Q1 2021, marking an increase of 9.22% on a year-on-year basis.
The Americas includes countries like the United States, Canada, Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, Mexico, Venezuela, Peru, Columbia, and many more. The Semiconductor manufacturing companies in the Americas include Intel, Qualcomm, Texas Instruments, Nvidia, Skyworks Solutions, Maxim Integrated, ATI Technologies, Microsystems International, Solidium Systems, and many more.
In Japan, the semiconductor billings rose from $8.65 billion in Q1 2020 to $9.78 billion in Q1 2021, a growth of 13.06% on a year-on-year basis. Toshiba, Sanyo, Panasonic, Elpida Memory, Sharp Electronics, Seiko, Kodenshi AUK Group, SUMCO are some of the semiconductor producing companies of Japan.
In Europe, the semiconductor billings increased from $10.17 billion in Q1 2020 to $11.05 billion in Q1 2021, marking an increase of 8.65% on a year-on-year basis.
Europe includes countries like the United Kingdom, Netherlands, Switzerland, Belgium, France, Italy, Germany, Russia, Poland, Sweden, Denmark, and many more. In the UK, the semiconductor market is dominated by companies like Dynex Semiconductor, Global Silicon, Wolfson Microelectronics, and Imagination Technologies. Other companies in Europe include ST Microelectronics, Osram, Infineon Technologies, NXP Semiconductors, and many more.
In the Asia Pacific, the semiconductor billings rose from $63.62 billion in Q1 2020 to $78.16 billion in Q1 2021, a growth of 22.85% on a year-on-year basis.
The Asia Pacific region includes countries like India, China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Australia, New Zealand, and many more. In the Asia Pacific, the semiconductor industry is mainly dominated by companies like TSMC, Media Tek, Samsung, SK Hynix, SMIC, Realtek, Powerchip, and ProMos.
Semiconductors are components that conduct electricity under certain conditions. They are generally made of silicon and germanium. Semiconductors are used in the manufacturing of various types of consumer electronic devices smartphones, smartwatches, washing machines, and refrigerators. Semiconductor chips are used in the automobile industry for various functions like vehicle electrification, autonomous driving, LED lighting and sensors, and many other functions.
Semiconductors are used in the healthcare industry for the production of various medical devices like oximeters, infrared thermometers, blood pressure monitoring devices, pacemakers, and many more. The COVID-19 pandemic helped in the growth of the semiconductor industry because of the higher usage of infrared thermometers and oximeters. Semiconductors are also used in industries like Aviation, Telecommunication, Military, and Defense.
