International e-commerce news, on Tuesday (8th local time), the World Semiconductor Trade Statistics Association (WSTS) released the latest semiconductor market forecast report as of May 2021.

WSTS estimates that the global semiconductor output value will reach US $527.2 billion in 2021, an increase of 19.7%; The output value of memory will grow by 31.7%, with the highest growth rate and ranking first.

Among them, the output value of sensors will grow by 22.4% this year, ranking the second; The output value of Analog IC will grow by 21.7%, ranking the third; The output value of discrete devices and logic IC will also grow by 18.3% and 17% respectively.

In terms of regions, WSTS estimates that the Asia Pacific region is the region with the largest growth rate, which will grow by 23.5% this year; Europe takes the second place, with a growth of 21.1%; Japan and the United States will grow by 12.7% and 11.1% respectively.


The demand for computers and Netcom driven by the housing economy continues to be strong, and the demand for 5g and vehicles drives the semiconductor goods, which in turn drives the global semiconductor output.


The demand for memory semiconductors in the terminal market is huge, especially the supply of dynamic random access memory (DRAM) and storage flash memory (NAND flash) is the most tight, the product quotation is rising, and the output value of memory is growing.


In addition, WSTS expects that the global semiconductor output value is expected to further reach US $573.4 billion in 2022, with a further growth of 8.8%; The output value of memory will grow by 17.4%, with the highest increase.
