Semiconductor capital spending market in the US to reach over $31B by 2019

Technavio’s market research analysts estimate the semiconductor capital spending market in the US, to grow at a CAGR of around 9% between 2015 and 2019. The most prominent segment in global semiconductor industry has been memory, logic, MPU and analog, which made up almost 75% of the total semiconductor demand. Semiconductor technology is continuously growing with emergence of advanced technology, leading to increased investments in this segment.

The new market research report from Technavio provides a breakdown and analysis of the semiconductor capital spending market segments by technology.

“One of the interesting trends gaining traction in the market is the rise in China’s semiconductor industry. China’s semiconductor industry has a significant influence on the capital spending in the US semiconductor industry. Even though, there are a large number of local semiconductor components manufacturers in China, more than 80% of the semiconductor requirements in China is fulfilled by US semiconductor companies, such as Intel and Global Foundries,” said Asif Ghani, Lead Analyst, Hardware & Semiconductor, Technavio Research.

The semiconductor capital spending market in the US is driven by numerous drivers, of which, the most prominent among of all is the accelerated capex in memory and foundry segments. Collectively, memory and foundry represent close to two-third of the total semiconductor capital spending market. With such accelerated capital investments on a global scale, the outcome will have a considerable impact on the semiconductor industry worldwide.

The key vendors in the semiconductor capital spending market in the US include Global Foundries, Intel, Micron, Samsung Electronics, and SK Hynix. The competition in the semiconductor capital spending market in the US is rigid. And the main reason for such intense completion is the evolution of technology. With the pace of technological advancements in the US market, vendors are involved in substantial capital spending, hence, the market comprises of players with strong technological proficiency.
