Semiconductor market: optimism for 2013?

March 4, 2013

Industry watchers have been lowering their outlooks for 2013 over the past few weeks, but there’s one set of opinions that still see optimism for an industry rebound in 2013 — chip industry executives themselves. In its annual study, KPMG found three quarters of semiconductor executives polled believe they will see revenue growth in the next fiscal year — that’s up from 63% in last year’s survey. Two-thirds expect to hire more workers (vs. 48% in 2011), and 71% say annual industry profitability will increase in 2013. Overall their sentiment is for a recovery that builds up steam especially heading into the second half of the year.

Strength in mobile devices and weakness in PCs will characterize the coming year and drive global semiconductor market growth of 4.9% in 2013 after a flat 2012, according to market forecast firm International Data Corp.
