Global semiconductor industry market size – additional information

Semiconductors are crucial components of electronics devices, and the industry is highly competitive and profitable, having been on an upward climb for many years. In 2010, for example, the global semiconductor industry registered an unpreceded year-on-year revenue growth rate of 31.8 percent. After this peak, the industry’s growth is expected to stabilize at around 3.4 percent for 2016. In terms of revenue, the industry also shows optimistic projections. Global semiconductor sales grew from 213 billion U.S. dollars in 2004 to nearly 336 billion U.S. dollars in 2014, the highest sales figure to date. By 2017, the global semiconductor industry is projected to amass nearly 370 billion U.S. dollars in revenues.

Intel, the world’s largest semiconductor chip maker, accounted for more than 50 billion U.S. dollars of the industry’s total revenue in 2014. The California-based company is the leading semiconductor vendor in the global market, with 15.5 percent of the market share. The manufacture of semiconductor chips is Intel’s main business, accounting for a significant portion of Intel’s net revenue. Intel’s closest competitor in the market, Samsung, held about 11.6 percent of the market share in 2015 with around 38 billion U.S. dollars in sales revenue. The South Korean SK Hynix, along with American companies Qualcomm, Micron Technology and Texas Instruments, are a few of the smaller vendors in the industry. Together, these vendors account for 17.5 percent of the market share, and generated about around 58 billion U.S. dollars in revenues in 2015.
