The global semiconductor industry is expected to reach almost US$600 billion this year. The semiconductor chip impacts multiple end markets, and unfortunately a missing chip can prevent the sale of a product costing thousands of dollars. For example, the chip shortage of the past two years is estimated to have cost the automobile industry over US$200 billion in sales in 2021 alone.
Semiconductor chips will continue to gain importance amongst many industries, due to the reliability on chips in factories, cars, appliances, computers, and phones. Therefore, improving chip manufacturing by increasing efficiencies and supplies is at the forefront of businesses’ concerns.
