Trends in the Semiconductor Manufacturing Industry

Written by Sarah Greenberg on Jul 29, 2019 11:00:00 AM

Semiconductor Manufacturing Industry TrendsWith the increase in applications of artificial intelligence (AI), computer systems are demanding efficient sensors and semiconductors chips to execute their advanced functionalities for better system output.

Additionally, semiconductor vendors have found good market opportunities with the introduction of various display technologies such as LCDs, OLED, LED, transparent displays, and others.

Flexible displays, curved screens, thin-film displays, and AMOLED (active-matrix organic light-emitting diode) are some of the core areas where semiconductor investors have adopted various new innovations and market development strategies.

For instance, in September 2017, Samsung and LG Electronics invested $30 million in CYNORA GmbH, a leading next generation OLED developer in Germany. The goal of this investment is to promote advanced OLEDs such as flexible OLED, transparent displays and others in the flexible display market.

In our full report, “2018 Semiconductor Manufacturing Research Review,” we offer an in-depth explanation the trends, opportunities, barriers to growth and more in several markets within the semiconductor manufacturing industry, including:

Trends in the Photonics Industry

The increase in the adoption of photonics is gradually replacing electric conductors—which are used in semiconductors for high speed transmission systems—with silicon photonics.

The rise in optical transceivers devices developed using silicon photonics has assisted in the development of transmission speeds of over 100Gbps, which is expected to have mass adoption and support the development of high-performance computing with increased efficiency. These devices are being predominantly used for image and capturing, as well as for intelligent lighting solutions such as OLED technologies.

In our full report, “2018 Photonics Research Review,” we explain in depth what’s happening in several segments of the photonics industry.

However, if you’re looking for a quick overview of what’s happening in photonics—including the fast-growing fiber optics industry—you’ll find today’s blog helpful.

We provide quick insight into the main trends occurring in three of the fastest-growing segments in the industry:

Trends in the Manufacturing Industry

Written by Sarah Greenberg on Jul 8, 2019 11:00:00 AM

Manufacturing Industry TrendsIn advanced economies, the manufacturing industry has largely concentrated on promoting innovation, productivity and trade more than growth and employment.

This focus on innovation has led companies to explore new opportunities, such as machine learning, internet of things (IoT) technology, augmented reality, virtual reality and others that have transformed their operations and increased efficiencies.

Most recently, manufacturers have adopted emerging technologies and have pursued this digital transformation to compete and gain a foothold in the marketplace.

In our full report, “2018 Manufacturing Research Review,” we explain in depth what’s happening in many markets within the manufacturing industry, including, but not limited to the following:
