IMAPS Global Business Council (GBC) Live Webinar on
Electronics and Semiconductor Market Trends: Looking for Growth Beyond 2020, including Regional Manufacturing Opportunities
Wednesday, August 5, 2020 | 12:00pm – 12:45pm EASTERN | MS Teams
After a tough year for the electronics and semiconductor markets in 2019, this year was poised to be a recovery year driven by 5G, data center, AI, ADAS/EV, and more. The global pandemic caused by COVID-19 has driven a potentially long-term rethinking of how we all work, play, and educate. This has shifted forecasts for most every sector within electronics, and most, but not all, of these changes were downward.
The “Everything from Home” (xFH) economy presents significant changes in outlooks within each sector and has impacted different companies in different ways. For example, in the first half of 2020, 70% of the top twenty semiconductor companies are expected to experience either double-digit YoY declines, or double-digit YoY increases. At the same time, disruptions in supply chains caused by government restrictions (not only COVID-10 related) has forced a number of players across the supply chain to rethink China as the global hub for certain facets of the supply chain such as PCB manufacturing and SMT assembly.
This presentation will look at the electronics and semiconductor markets through 1H 2020 and consider the near- and long-term growth opportunities. This view will be by application sector, but also by select segments of the supply chain (PCB, SMT, package assembly) on a regional basis.
