manufacturing of electronics at domestic level and high outsourcing of electronic
products are primarily fueling the growth in semiconductor market.

According to the report, the Asia-Pacific market has outshined the growth of global
electronics market in recent times. The report presents global semiconductor
landscape by market, technology and equipment covering current and past performance,
market value, market by product and end-application, industry segmentation,
semiconductor equipment market (like wafer fabrication, assembly, packaging, and
test), capital and equipment spending, global fabrication plant capacity, etc.
