Semiconductor Market Review – 2018

We are proud to release our latest M&A Market Review on the semiconductor industry

The global semiconductor industry is evolving steadily, driven by product innovation coupled with aggressive research and development and new manufacturing technologies. Increasing digitalisation has propelled the demand for semiconductors and changed the way the industry operates.

Over the past couple of years, semiconductor companies have outperformed the broader index, buoyed by the range of technology drivers, including the emergence in the applicability of the internet of things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI), 3D printing and augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR).

Acuity’s Semiconductor Market Review provides an overview of the key themes within the industry over the past year and is broken down into the following three sections:

  • Market Dynamics – analysis of key drivers impacting the semiconductor market along with analysis of how subsectors are performing (EDA, Fabless IC, Fabrication, Integrated IC, IP Providers and Tools Providers)
  • Transaction Analysis – analysis of global mid-market deal values and volumes alongside some of the top mid-market semiconductor transactions in 2018
  • Valuation Analysis – analysis of mid-market semiconductor transactions by both EV/Revenue and EV/EBITDA multiples
