We are proud to release our latest M&A Market Review on the semiconductor industry
In 2019 the global Semiconductor market recorded a decrease in revenue of 11.9% to $418.3bn. The over-saturation of traditional end products, resulting in falling demand and reduced prices, became contributing factors to this decline, along with the economic uncertainties fuelled by the continuation of the US-China trade war.
The Tools, Test and Verification subsector, the main focus of this report, followed the same pattern as the overall Semiconductor industry in 2019, with sales suggesting a drop of 10.5% to $57.6bn following a historic high of $64.4bn in 2018. With the development of new technologies, the trend for miniaturisation and investment in sub-10nm equipment, this subsector is set for expansion with forecasts showing a 5.5% increase in sales to $60.8bn in 2020.
