The fast-growing Global Outsourced Semiconductor Assembly and Test (OSAT) market is the key story in the Asian semiconductor assembly and test market, reports In-Stat. Asia’s dominance as the world’s semiconductor manufacturing hub, coupled with its increased semiconductor consumption and low labor costs, has been conducive to setting up the OSAT industry in the region, the high-tech market research firm says.
“Typically, IDMs used to outsource their low-end, high-volume work to subcontractors when their internal packaging foundries could not handle the overflowing volumes,” says Mayank Jain, In-Stat analyst. “Of late, subcontractors have evolved a lot, and have acquired the sophisticated skills and expertise to deal with high-end semiconductor packages.”
Recent research by In-Stat found the following:
- The Global Semiconductor Assembly and Test market will reach US$55.4 billion by 2011.
- China will add 71% of the total Semiconductor Assembly and Test capacity added in Asia by 2011.
- Taiwan dominates OSAT in Asia, and its OSAT revenues will reach US$5.1 billion by 2011.
The research, “Semiconductor Assembly and Testing Market Trends in Asia” (#IN0703539ASM), covers Asia’s semiconductor assembly and testing market. It includes forecasts of OSAT revenue by package type, OSAT market by application, Asian OSAT markets by country, and SAT capacity by country through 2011. It also provides analysis of the SAT industry by country, and profiles of selected OSAT companies. In addition to the report, Mayank and other In-Stat analysts provide consulting services on a variety of technical and market topics regarding the semiconductor and electronics industries.
