Report: 2022 State of the U.S. Semiconductor Industry

Semiconductors—the tiny chips powering modern electronics—have enabled breathtaking innovation in virtually all areas of society, fundamentally shifting the boundary between the possible and the impossible. Today’s semiconductors are so advanced they can contain more than 100 billion transistors on a single piece of silicon—so many that it would take a person more than 1,000 years to count each one aloud.

Report: Strengthening the Global Semiconductor Supply Chain in an Uncertain Era

A Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA)/Boston Consulting Group (BCG) study analyzes the benefits and vulnerabilities of the global semiconductor supply chain and recommends government actions to ensure its long-term strength and resilience. The report finds that while the current global semiconductor supply chain structure based on geographic specialization has enabled tremendous innovation, productivity, and cost savings over the last 30 years, new supply chain vulnerabilities have emerged that must be addressed by government actions, including funding incentives to boost domestic chip production and research.
