Where can you get key facts about the semiconductor industry and market, including the current size of the global semiconductor market ($412 billion), U.S. semiconductor industry market share (47 percent), and the top end-use market for semiconductors (communication devices)? These data points and many more are now available in the recently released 2020 SIA Factbook.

The 2020 SIA 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 2019, and most of the data is presented over a 20-year period, which provides a 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 2020 Policy Priorities document lays out several such policies that Congress and the Administration should advance: expand access to global markets, increase federal investments in semiconductor research, minimize burdens on exports of commercial semiconductors, strengthen America’s technology workforce, promote innovation by protecting valuable IP, keep the U.S. tax system globally competitive, support sustainability, combat counterfeit semiconductors, foster growth of new technologies, and enhance supply chain security and manage risk. Prioritizing these policies will help ensure sustained U.S. leadership in semiconductors and the technologies of the future, including artificial intelligence, quantum computing, and advanced wireless networks.
