Pavilion of Semiconductor Manufacturing Industry Chain
Exhibition Area of Design, Manufacturing, Assembly & Test and Semiconductor Support Industry (Equipment and Materials)
Key factors for the rise of the semiconductor industry in China incorporate the huge market demand and favorable policies. The integrated circuit industry in China has seen further improvement in the scale and achieved outstanding performance in development level. The pattern of IC design, wafer fabrication and assembly & test has been exposed to constant changes, where the whole industry develops towards the fore-end design and wafer fabrication, the proportion of assembly & test sector declines, the industry structure is optimized and the added value of the industry is increased.
Exhibition area of semiconductor design: The integrated circuit industry in China in developing to higher technology content and more rational industry structure. For a typical instance, the chip design is occupying an increasing proportion; the proportion of the design industry chain has exceeded the assembly and test sector; and the design sector of China mainland takes up over 10% of the world and ranks the 3rd only after USA and Taiwan, which brings forward a great number of orders on the downstream chip fabrication and assembly and effectively promotes synergetic development of the industry chain. IC China has gathered top chip designers that are active in Chinese market, including NXP, MediaTek, UniIC, Spreadtrum, Huada, On-Bright and Leadcore etc.
Exhibition area of semiconductor manufacturing: Domestic enterprises engaged in wafer fabrication are commonly exposed to full-capacity production or expansion of production at the production lines due to increase of orders driven by the growing semiconductor market. As the government is constantly releasing favorable policies and many cities including Wuhan, Hefei, Xiamen, Nanjing and Chongqing and so on make concentrated efforts and have launched a batch of 12-inch integrated circuit projects, the production capacity of 12-inch production lines will usher in rapid growth in next few years. UMC, SMIC, Shanghai Huahong and Wuhan Xinxin have joined IC China for several years in succession.
Exhibition area of assembly & test: The assembly & test sector has taken up a high proportion in the integrated circuit industry in China for a long time due to relatively lower requirements on technology, small investment and rapid returns. As pushed by significant increase in domestic design orders and overseas orders in recent years, the domestic assembly & test industry has maintained rapid growth. The exhibition area of assembly & test of IC China has attracted global top enterprises in assembly and test, including ASE, Amkor, Changjiang Elec., Huatian and Tongfu Microelectronics etc.
Exhibition area of semiconductor support industry (equipment and materials): The support industry including equipment, instruments and materials lays the foundation for development of the semiconductor industry. The independent semiconductor industry cannot be established in China without development of the support industry. The manufacturing development would be subject to technology blockade by western countries if no independent high-end equipment. Currently, China has over 30 types of high-end equipment attain 14-nm level in the area of integrated circuit. A batch of advanced enterprises of semiconductor support industry have gathered in the platform of IC China, including China Micro Semiconductor, Ningbo Konfoong, DISCO, ACCRETECH, CETC Electronics Equipment and Shanghai Cascol etc.
