The 2019 Factbook presents a clear picture of the trends in the U.S. semiconductor industry and global market using data. Factbook sections include data on the global industry and market, capital and R&D investment, jobs, and productivity. Data is updated through 2018, and most of the data is presented over a 20-year period, which gives the reader a helpful picture of long-term industry and market trends.

The U.S. semiconductor industry has a great story to tell about how semiconductors are fundamental to America’s economic strength, global technology leadership, and national security. The SIA Factbook provides one unique and critical way to tell this story: through numbers. The SIA Factbook helps demonstrate the strength and promise of the U.S. semiconductor industry and why it is critical for policymakers to enact policies that boost growth and promote innovation.

SIA’s recently released policy blueprint lays out several such policies that Congress and the Administration should advance: significantly increase investments in semiconductor and related research, help attract and develop the world’s most skilled technology workforce, and ensure open markets and strong protection of intellectual property. Doing so will help ensure sustained U.S. leadership in semiconductors and the technologies of the future, including artificial intelligence, quantum computing, and advanced wireless networks.
