automotive chips, heterogeneous integration in spotlight at semicon taiwan 2022

SEMICON Taiwan 2022 has kicked off in Taipei and will run through September 16, with this year’s theme focusing on automotive chips, heterogeneous integration, and other semiconductor industry topics including advanced manufacturing, compound semiconductors, semiconductor cybersecurity, and smart and sustainable manufacturing.

The trade show this year features more than 700 exhibiting companies with over 2,400 booths, according to the organizer SEMI.

At SEMICON Taiwan 2022, a summit will be held to gather microelectronics and automotive industry leaders to discuss collaboration opportunities and ways to accelerate the development of automotive chips, with featured speakers including executives from Bosch, Denso, Infineon, Renesas and Volkswagen.

Another summit will take place to discuss key topics including digital transformation and 3D heterogeneous integration trends, and energy-efficient high-performance computing (HPC), with TSMC executives being among the speakers.

SEMICON Taiwan 2022 will also present an IC forum to bring together manufacturers, and equipment and materials suppliers to talk about how they deal with manufacturing challenges with innovative strategies and methodologies. A compound semiconductor pavilion will feature a series of forums and industry meet-ups focused on future industry trends and technologies.

“Despite continuing global economic challenges, the semiconductor industry is poised for long-term growth, with the industry expected to reach US$1 trillion by 2030,” said Terry Tsao, global chief marketing officer of SEMI and president of SEMI Taiwan.

According to SEMI, worldwide semiconductor equipment billings increased 7% sequentially and 6% on year to US$26.43 billion in the second quarter of 2022, with Taiwan being the largest semiconductor equipment market. Equipment billings in Taiwan came to US$6.68 billion in the second quarter, rising 37% sequentially and 32% from the same period in 2021, while equipment billings in China fell 20% on year and 13% on quarter to US$6.56 billion.

The Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA) disclosed earlier this month that worldwide semiconductor sales grew 7.3% on month but slipped 2.3% from a year earlier to US$49 billion in July 2022. “Global semiconductor sales remained strong in July, easily topping the total from last July, but market growth has slowed substantially in recent months, with year-to-year sales increases dropping into the single digits for the first time since December 2020,” said SIA president and CEO John Neuffer.
