This year, the mainland semiconductor industry still maintains a high-speed growth pattern, mainly due to the continued import substitution in the mainland market, which brings development space for local enterprises.
In addition, the development of production lines, process technology modules and IP cores for 12-inch wafers and 8-inch wafer fabs provides strong support for integrated circuit products related to the Internet of Things such as smart grids, smart transportation, and smart homes, as well as foreign-funded enterprises. Increasing the scale of investment in the mainland, and more importantly, it is the support of government policies in the mainland of China, such as the new century development strategy such as "Made in China 2025" and the 13th Five-Year Plan.
As far as integrated circuit manufacturing is concerned, it is a foregone conclusion that the global 12-inch fab capacity is shifted to China. China ’s existing 12-inch fab capacity totals 420,000 wafers / month, including SMIC (Beijing), China Chip International (Shanghai), SK Hynix, Intel (Dalian), Wuhan Xinxin, Samsung, Huali Microelectronics, and the total new 12-inch wafer fab production capacity in China in 2016-2018 will reach 635,500 wafers / month The proportion of global 12-inch wafer fabs' production capacity will climb from 10% in 2016 to 22% in 2018.
In the future, the production capacity of China's 12-inch factories will be sufficient to control the global semiconductor market. On the other hand, it also represents the rise of the Chinese semiconductor power. Countries have offered strategies for cooperation and flag insertion to China, hoping to steal future business opportunities.
It is worth mentioning that China's new 12-inch wafer fab production capacity from 2016 to 2018 will include Taiwan's TSMC, UMC and Powerchip, with 12-inch fabs in Xiamen, Nanjing, Hefei and other places. Manufacturers from the United States include Intel and Global Foundries, which will each invest USD 5.5 billion and USD 2 billion in Dalian and Chongqing, while local manufacturers in China include Huali Microelectronics, Wuhan Xinxin, and Tongfang Guoxin.
As far as integrated circuit design industry is concerned, high-end general-purpose chips, mobile smart terminal chips, digital TV chips, network communication chips, smart wearable device chips, military chips, integrated circuit design software and other fields will still be China in 2016. The investment goals of the integrated circuit industry fund for this industry show that the state's support for the development of the integrated circuit design industry is very clear. Therefore, the technology and customer levels of major mainland design factories will continue to improve.
From the perspective of the semiconductor packaging and testing industry, with the support of policies, the emergence of mergers and acquisitions, and the rise of local integrated circuit design industry, the annual growth rate of China's semiconductor packaging and testing industry output value will be higher than in 2015.
It is worth mentioning that Sun Moonlight announced that it will jointly form an industrial holding company with Silicon Products. In addition to reducing mutual competition and responding to competitors in other regions in a group mode, it also joined hands to create TSMC in the semiconductor packaging and testing industry, with a market share of more than 30%, will master a full range of high-level packaging technology, and firmly occupy the position of the world's largest semiconductor packaging and testing leader, which also means that the semiconductor packaging and testing industry is moving towards the trend of groupization.
With the joint efforts of Taiwan's packaging and testing companies, the prospects for integration or mergers and acquisitions of Chinese semiconductor packaging and testing companies will be further strengthened in the future, and it is worthy of Taiwan industry's high alert.
