Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Concise Analysis of the International Semiconductor Foundry Market - Forecasts to 2016" report to their offering.
The Global Semiconductor Foundry market is witnessing an increasing consolidation and strategic alliances between market players, which are expected to continue even in the future. Both existing vendors and new entrants prefer the acquisitive route to either enter the market or broaden their portfolio of offerings. For instance, Hua Hong NEC Electronics and Grace Semiconductor Manufacturing Corp. completed their merger in 2011. In addition, IBM, Global Foundries, and Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. have formed an alliance in the market. Since the market is highly fragmented and competitive, players are adopting strategies such as alliances, agreements, and mergers to sustain the competition.
According to the report, one of the main drivers is the restocking of inventory by customers. As the demand for semiconductor devices is increasing, customers are replenishing the stock to keep pace with the current as well as near-future market conditions. For the past few years, this has been one of the major contributing factors to the growth of the market. Further, the report states that one of the major challenges in this market is the fluctuating revenue of the Semiconductor industry. The major reason for this fluctuating revenue is the fluctuating demand for the products in this industry.
