Semiconductor Market in Vietnam Up 14.3% by 2019
SEMICON Southeast Asia to Explore the Issues

PENANG, Malaysia, Apr 7, 2016 - (ACN Newswire) - With the semiconductor industry in Vietnam expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 14.3% over the period of 2014 to 2019, momentum is growing in this emerging market. The electronics supply chain will convene at SEMICON Southeast Asia (SEA) from 26-28 April at the Subterranean Penang International Convention and Exhibition Centre (SPICE) in Penang, Malaysia to explore new opportunities and technology.

The increase in Vietnam is driven by the recent increase in demand for devices. Electronics accounted for 23% of all Vietnam exports in 2014, up from only 5% in 2010, making it a key development focus of the Vietnamese government (Vietnam Trade Promotion Agency). "Foreign Direct Investment" manufactured goods make up a large portion of the electronics export market, with only a small percentage contributed by local Vietnam companies. The electronics industry in Vietnam increased its market share of the electronics industry to 38% in 2014, and with the increasing number of electronic items, Vietnam finds itself at the cusp of being an important electronics exporter within the region.

SEMI, the global industry association serving the electronics manufacturing supply chain, will include programs pertinent to Vietnam's semiconductor industry at the upcoming SEMICON SEA 2016, the region's premier showcase for microelectronics innovation.

According to Ng Kai Fai, president of SEMI Southeast Asia, "Forums and discussion sessions during SEMICON SEA 2016 benefit electronic players from Vietnam in terms of technology development as well as the bigger picture of Vietnam's market segment. The conference is an ideal platform for local semiconductor companies and start-ups to learn more about the technology trends that can be applied to Vietnam's electronics growing importance. At the same time, multinational corporations use this event to learn about the Vietnam supply chain, assisting the build-up of a local ecosystem over the long run."

"SEMICON SEA 2016 offers a complete platform for engaging customers, suppliers, engineers and decision-makers from across the industry. With the objective to champion regional collaboration, the showcase will open new business opportunities for customers and foster stronger cross-regional engagement. The event is sold-out for exhibitors for the first-time ever. With 200 global exhibitors and more than 60 industry luminaries presenting at the event, it offers a compelling reason why Vietnamese semiconductor stakeholders should attend this 'don't miss' electronics event," Ng Kai Fai added.

SEMICON SEA 2016 will focus on the key trends and solutions in semiconductor design and manufacturing, including emphasis on serving the needs of expanding applications markets many of which require development of specialised materials, packaging, and test technologies, as well as new architectures and processes.
