Considering individual categories, IC Insights experts expect that in the segment of microcontrollers and microprocessors, growth will be 42%, in the segment of logical microcircuits – 40%, in the segment of DRAM and SRAM – 34%, in the segment of flash memory and non-volatile memory in general – 13 %. Analogue and other semiconductor capex will grow 41%.

If we talk about segment sizes, microcontrollers and microprocessors are 15%, logical microcircuits – 8%, DRAM and SRAM – 16%, non-volatile memory – 18%, analog and others – 7%. Investments in contract manufacturing are highlighted in a separate line. They will grow by 42%, and the size of this segment is 35%. Note that TSMC, the world’s largest contract manufacturer, will account for 57% of the $ 53.0 billion invested in contract manufacturing worldwide this year.
