The increase in the global demand for semiconductors, which is expected to double by 2030, has exposed the dependencies of the supply chain on large global actors and the potential frailties of this supply chain within certain geographies. This, in turn, has led governments around the world to consider their dependency on this vital commodity which is considered critical for key areas driving economies such as communications, security, and mobility.

This year’s SEMI Industry Strategy Symposium Europe - ISS Europe theme is “EU Chips Act: Realizing Europe’s Ambition by 2030”. The resilience of Europe’s Semiconductor sector in the face of the many challenges will be discussed, including the supply of talent and the growth of manufacturing capacity. The ability of Europe to remain relevant within the geopolitically influenced supply chain by exploiting its leading-edge R&D capacities and ability to produce disruptive technologies will also be explored.

Agenda

DAY 1 | Wednesday, February 15

In recent years, supply chain disruptions have led to restrictions in the production of everything from cars to computers and medical equipment, emphasizing the vital role chips play in the global economy. Industry growth is expected to reach $1T USD by 2030, and the European Chips Act will be instrumental in enabling European progress to maintain its competitive advantage and leadership.

In this session, speakers will present on how the industry will grow exponentially to meet the increased demand for semiconductors, driven by mega trends IoT, automotive, digitization, electrification, healthcare, cloud and edge computing, and machine learning.

Semiconductor manufacturing is an essential business across all regions of the world. Today there are more ambitious plans for investments in new and existing fabs than ever before. Across the value chain, the semiconductor industry has the urgent need of introducing smarter, sustainable manufacturing solutions to enable growth and reach sustainability goals.

The focal point of this session is to demonstrate how the introduction of more automation, data analytics, and processing, novel approaches to manufacturing, as well as resource-saving technologies, provides the opportunity – and the necessity – for all stakeholders to work collaboratively to achieve industry sustainability goals and pave the way to Net Zero.
