Emerging Resilience in the Semiconductor Supply Chain

The report projects the United States will triple its domestic semiconductor manufacturing capacity from 2022—when the CHIPS and Science Act (CHIPS) was enacted—to 2032. The projected 203% growth is the largest projected percent increase in the world over that time.

The study also projects the U.S. will grow its share of advanced logic (below 10nm) manufacturing to 28% of global capacity by 2032, up from 0% in 2022. Additionally, America is projected to capture over one-quarter (28%) of total global capital expenditures (capex) from 2024-2032, ranking second only to Taiwan (31%). In the absence of the CHIPS Act, the U.S. would have captured only 9% of global capex by 2032, according to the report.

Semiconductor Workforce Development: A Policy Blueprint

A growing, globally competitive U.S. semiconductor industry requires a skilled workforce, including highly educated engineers and scientists, well-trained technicians, and others.

To ensure the success of the CHIPS Act and drive semiconductor innovation – along with the national security and economic benefits derived from U.S. semiconductor leadership – America needs to adopt policies to educate and attract the top engineering and scientific talent in the world and train a skilled workforce for the semiconductor industry and other strategic technology sectors.

Chipping Away: Assessing and Addressing the Labor Market Gap Facing the U.S. Semiconductor Industry

SIA released a study finding the United States faces a significant shortage of technicians, computer scientists, and engineers, with a projected shortfall of 67,000 of these workers in the semiconductor industry by 2030 and a gap of 1.4 million such workers throughout the broader U.S. economy. The report, titled “Chipping Away: Assessing and Addressing the Labor Market Gap Facing the U.S. Semiconductor Industry,” also makes a set of policy recommendations to help close the talent gap and complement the workforce development initiatives that are already being carried out by semiconductor companies across the U.S.

Report: The Growing Challenge of Semiconductor Design Leadership

The report finds that a federal investment in semiconductor design and R&D of approximately $20 billion to $30 billion through 2030—including $15 billion to $20 billion for an investment tax credit for semiconductor design—will help maintain long-term U.S. chip design leadership.

Recommendations for the National Semiconductor Technology Center (NSTC)

The cornerstone of the CHIPS R&D program is the National Semiconductor Technology Center (NSTC), a more than $5 billion initiative tasked to “conduct research and prototyping of advanced semiconductor technology and grow the domestic semiconductor workforce to strengthen the economic competitiveness and security of the domestic supply chain.” This report contains a set of recommendations to promote the success of the NSTC and synthesizes the most up-to-date industry consensus and priorities.

The U.S. semiconductor industry is the worldwide leader with half of global market share.
The industry directly employs over 338,000 people in the U.S. and supports more than 1.9 million additional U.S. jobs.
Semiconductors are a top U.S. export after refined oil, crude oil, natural gas, civilian aircraft, and automobiles.
The U.S. industry invests about one-fifth of revenue in R&D on average, among the most of any sector.

From Microchips to Medical Devices: Semiconductors as an Essential Industry during the COVID-19 Pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic highlighted the importance of information and communication technologies (ICT) in supporting essential activities in a crisis, and the role of an ever-widening range of digitized services, from commerce to education to healthcare, in building a resilient society.
