Semiconductor Manufacturers

Overview

The 780 semiconductor manufacturers in the US design and build a variety of semiconductor and related solid-state devices including integrated circuits, memory chips, microprocessors, diodes, transistors, and solar cells. Semiconductors are used in a wide range of products, but major categories include computers and electronic devices, machinery, appliances, transportation equipment, solar panels, and lighting equipment.

Rapid Technology Innovation

Semiconductor manufacturers spend significant amounts of cash on research and development to meet customer demand and stay ahead of competition.

Shrinking Nodes, Fewer Labs

The number of cutting-edge semiconductor manufacturers is shrinking as fewer firms have the financial resources needed to further miniaturize semiconductors.
