A Review of the 2023 Semiconductor Market and a Look to 2024

Date: Feb. 22, 2024
Time: 2 pm EST

Semiconductor sales declined by 8.2% in 2023, confirming projections that the industry would experience negative growth. Despite the decrease in annual revenue, the second half of the year saw consistent month-over-month sales growth, signaling the beginning of the new semiconductor business cycle. In addition, the increase in the latter half of the year was driven by sales in end-markets—such as AI, automotive, and industrial—that are expected to propel the industry to $1 trillion by 2030.

Please join a panel of semiconductor market experts to discuss 2023 sales trends and an outlook of the market in 2024. Panelists include Dan Hutcheson, Vice Chair at TechInsights; Dale Ford, Chief Analyst at the Electronics Components Industry Association (ECIA); Lita Shon-Roy, President/CEO and Founder of TECHCET; and Christopher Danely, Managing Director, Citi. The session will be moderated by Robert Casanova, Director of Industry Statistics and Economic Policy at SIA.

Panelists

Dan Hutcheson
Vice Chair
TechInsights Inc.

Dan is Vice Chair of TechInsights Inc. He is a recognized authority on the semiconductor industry, winning SEMI’s Sales and Marketing Excellence Award[1] in 2012 for “empowering executives with tremendous strategic and tactical marketing value” through his e-letter, The Chip Insider®; his book Maxims of Hi-Tech, and his many interviews of executives.

As some industry leaders have said, “He is the marketing voice and expert for the industry.” “Dan has methodically captured the essence of the industry and produced it in such a way for all to benefit … He has been such an integral part of the industry for so long, it is difficult to imagine the industry without his contributions.”

Dan’s public work on the industry has often focused on challenging predictions of the demise of Moore’s Law that date back decades by demonstrating how doomsayers have been outpaced by emergent behavior through the innate ability of technologists to innovate. This has included invited articles for Scientific American, the SIA, and the Plenary at the SPIE Advanced Lithography Conference.
