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: 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.
