With increasing competition in advanced processes and economics of scale, the global wafer foundry industry has been concentrated further over the years with the top 5 foundries accounting for over 83% of the total production in 2018. Other than orders from ID design clients, there are increasing contract manufacturing orders from IDMs (Integrated Device Manufacturers) which are then transforming into fab-lite and/or fabless semiconductor companies. Production value of the global wafer foundry industry amounted to US$67.1 billion in 2018, up 7.9% compared to 2017. This report provides an overview of the industry’s performance during the period 2018-2019, examines key issues affecting the industry, and looks into development strategies of major players, including TSMC, Samsung, GlobalFoundries, UMC and SMIC.
