Semiconductor expert 60% of the semiconductor industry in the next year
The survey showed that the Korean semiconductor industry crisis will continue in the next year. Last month, semiconductor exports fell 7.8% from a year ago, recording reverse growth in two years and two months.
The Korea Chamber of Commerce and Industry announced on the 5th of last month that the Korean semiconductor industry and academia surveyed the Korean semiconductor industry awareness of the domestic semiconductor industry.
Six out of ten experts who say that the Korean semiconductor industry is a crisis, the difficult situation will not soon improve. 58.6%of respondents predicted that the crisis would continue after next year. Following this, there were many answers: ‘until next year’ (24.1%), ‘until the first half of next year’ (13.9%), and ‘until the end of this year’ (3.4%).
Kim Yang-pang, a researcher at the Korea Institute of Industry, said, The demand for semiconductors has decreased worldwide, but inventory has increased, and the price has been lowered.
Market research firms believe that memory semiconductor prices will fall by more than 10% in the second quarter.
43.4%of respondents pointed out that the situation in the Korean semiconductor industry is more serious than 2016-2019. There were many opinions that they were very serious (16.7%) or serious (26.7%). In 2016, export growth for four years has fallen as China enters the memory semiconductor market. In 2019, exports fell 26% from a year ago due to US-China trade disputes and global semiconductor recessions.
It was more than the expectation that 46.7%of the observations that the discussion of semiconductor councils in Korea, the United States, Japan, and Taiwan (chip 4) (chip 4) will have a positive impact at 46.7%.
Park Jin-seop, a professor of convergence electronics engineering at Hanyang University, said, We can participate in the chip four dialogue and have the opportunity to cooperate with the world’s semiconductor companies and R & D and supply chain cooperation.
The impact of the American semiconductor and science law is 50%of positive predictions, higher than negative (40%).
Jung Ui-young, a professor of electrical and electronic engineering at Yonsei University, said, The world semiconductor supply chain is rapidly reorganizing in the United States.
The urgent policies for the semiconductor industry include the government’s smooth diplomatic efforts (43.3%), human resources (30%), expanding R & D support (13.3%), and Investment (10%) and ‘stabilizing the supply chain of semiconductor materials (3.4%)’ were selected.
Woo Tae-hee, vice chairman of the Korea Sangsang, said, Semiconductor is responsible for one-fifth of Korea’s exports. We need to improve investment and acquisition system for overseas technology companies and active diplomacy among semiconductor competitors.
