SIA Webinar: Unprecedented Challenges, Historic Opportunities, Sept 28
Join SIA Tuesday, September 28 at 2 pm EDT for the complimentary SRC-SIA Webinar Unprecedented Challenges, Historic Opportunities: the State of the U.S. Semiconductor Industry. Please be sure to register for this event.
The past year has been one for the ages for the semiconductor industry and market. With the world still gripped by the COVID-19 pandemic, semiconductor-enabled technologies has allowed the world to remotely work, study, treat illness, and stay connected. At the same time, COVID-19 shifted global semiconductor demand in unprecedented and unanticipated ways that shook global supply chains and contributed to a widespread global semiconductor shortage. The U.S. government and other governments around the world have taken notice of the importance of semiconductors and have or are contemplating policies to incentivize increased chip production and innovation.
A new SIA report tries to put this past year in perspective, as well as seeks to show how the U.S. semiconductor industry has weathered the storm’s global position across a variety of metrics, including market share, manufacturing, and technology competitiveness. The 2021 State of the U.S. Semiconductor Industry report demonstrates that while the U.S. industry has faced unprecedented challenges over the past year, it also has an historic opportunity to improve upon its current leadership position in the global industry.
Please join a panel of industry experts for a conversation about the report, the challenges and opportunities facing our industry, and what the future may hold. Speakers include John Pitzer, Managing Director at Credit Suisse; Dan Hutcheson, CEO and Chairman at VLSI Research; Dale Ford, Chief Analyst at the Electronic Components Industry Association (ECIA); and Falan Yinug, Director of Industry Statistics and Economic Policy at the SIA.
