Research for this report was conducted over a six-month period, beginning in January 2021 and ending in May 2021. Data presented before 2020 represents actual information for the calendar year. Data for 2021 is based on actual year-to-date data, rather than the full year; therefore, 2021 data should be considered an estimate.

In-depth personal, telephone, and email interviews were conducted with representatives from fabless design houses, semiconductor manufacturers, packaging & test plants, especially with equipment manufacturers and material vendors, as well as with government officials and professionals from industry associations in China. While the majority of the information contained in this report was derived from interviews, a thorough literature search was also conducted.  All information was analyzed and the findings are summarized in this report. 

Responses were obtained from all of the key semiconductor equipment and material vendors based in China. Industry parks and associations also responded to the survey, which provided valuable information about investment trends and overview of China’s semiconductor industry for the next several years.  Estimates were made for non-reporting companies based on complete literature searches, historical information, and from discussions with industry professionals.
