Most market participants operating in the semiconductor industry are companies that outsource various aspects of their production process rather than accommodating the complete process in-house. These companies are more focused on utilizing their resources for designing solutions and leveraging their expertise in improving chipset performance. These fabless companies partner with outsourced semiconductor foundry service providers to ensure proper assembly and testing of their semiconductor solutions.

Semiconductor foundry services can be adopted by many industries. Some of the primary industries procuring semiconductor foundry services include telecom, computing and networking, consumer electronics and automotive. Rising demand for portable and network-enabled devices that provide multimedia capabilities and can access the internet, is boosting the demand for efficient semiconductor foundry service.

Impact of Ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic on Semiconductor Foundry Service Market

COVID-19 pandemic is disrupting supply chains and challenging the growth of the global semiconductor industry. Revenues of semiconductor assembly and testing service providers are at risk and disruptions of publicly disclosed supply chains are resulting in reduction of share prices. Lower shareholder returns are resulting in minimal investments. Amid the ongoing crisis, semiconductor foundry service providers are focusing on incorporating contingency strategies to manage short-term and long-term supply chain disruptions. These companies are assessing and considering modification of their supply chain plans and operating models in order to alleviate single points of non-fulfillment. 

Semiconductor Foundry Service: Market Drivers and Challenges

Leading semiconductor foundry service providers are procuring advanced assembly and testing technologies in order to guarantee quick Returns on Investments (ROI) made by them on behalf of their fabless clients. These service providers are attracting a renewed wave of customers, who are looking to upgrade their traditional packaging and testing methodologies to newer standards. These customers are striving to complement capacity demands as their prospects move to prefer newer semiconductor foundry methodologies. Most of the advanced semiconductor foundry services and technologies available are still in nascent stages of procurement, and are likely to offer lucrative opportunities for revenue generation during the forecast period. These semiconductor foundry services promise greater chip connectivity and lower power ratings, as compared to their traditional variants.

Key end-users of semiconductor foundry services operate in telecom, computing and networking, consumer electronics and automotive industries. Periodic fluctuations in foundry batch volumes, order levels and related foundry service fee rates result in volatility and variations in net incomes of semiconductor foundry service providers. Quite frequently, consumer electronics and semiconductor manufacturing and integration industries face repeated manufacturing and operational downturns. As electronics and semiconductor Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) depend on third-party semiconductor foundry service providers, these variations in batch volumes, order levels and related service fee rates challenge the growth of semiconductor foundry service providers on a global scale.
