Semiconductor Foundry Market Growth and Trends to 2019 Forecasts - Global Analysis Report

Semiconductor foundries manufacture ICs based on the designs provided by certain companies. The majority of these companies are semiconductor fabless companies that design and sell hardware devices and semiconductor chipsets while outsourcing the fabrication process of the devices to semiconductor foundries. Semiconductor foundries are also known as semiconductor fabrication plants (usually referred to as fab).

Semiconductor foundries are of two types: Pure-play foundries and IDMs. This classification is used to differentiate between companies that perform in-house semiconductor manufacturing and fabless companies that outsource designs to third parties. Fabless companies outsource manufacturing to avail cost benefits.

The analysts forecast global semiconductor foundry market to grow at a CAGR of 8.4 percent over the period 2014-2019.
