"Electrifying your pathway to success through in-depth market research"
The ASEAN semiconductor market size was USD 26.91 billion in 2020. The regional impact of COVID-19 has been unprecedented and staggering, with semiconductors witnessing a negative demand shock across all regions amid the pandemic. Based on our analysis, the market exhibited a decline of -0.2% in 2020. The market is projected to grow from USD 27.64 billion in 2021 to USD 41.88 billion in 2028 at a CAGR of 6.1% during the 2021-2028 period. The sudden rise in CAGR is attributable to this market’s demand and growth, returning to pre-pandemic levels once the pandemic is over.
Governments of developing economies tend towards offering strong economic support in the form of policies such as loan facilities, reserve ratio, etc. With decreasing inflation in 2019, where Indonesia and India had cut rates four times with Indonesia lowered its benchmark to 100 basis points and India 135 points, the monetary policies have been loosened across ASEAN countries to propel the economic activities.
In 2020, monetary authorities across the ASEAN region took required actions as the pandemic hits the economies. Financial institutions offered reserve requirement ratio, refinancing, and rediscount policies, therefore expected to spur the ASEAN semiconductor industry growth in the upcoming years.
Uncertainty in Trading Activities amid COVID-19 to Impede Growth
Generally, China is considered the major global producer of industrial components and commodities. However, with the emergence of the pandemic, there has being a halt in the trade activity, due to which other economies are facing raw material shortages. The way COVID-19 has dragged down, China’s trade is expected to have a profound knock-on effect on the exports of emerging Asian countries, both directly and through this regional value chain.
In 2017, more than 35% of inputs to Vietnam’s manufacturing export commodities came from China. Similarly, more than 20% of inputs to Cambodia, Lao PDR, Indonesia, and India were sourced from China. Moreover, companies adopting a fully digitized process can accurately quote the changed prices, and the manufacturing process can be completed in a day, based on regional limitations. This change in the method can make a significant difference, especially when the companies are factoring in the total cost, including the supply chain from order to distribution. However, effective preventive measures by government agencies have helped in attaining the ASEAN semiconductor market growth position similar to pre-pandemic, with rising need for consumer electronics across the region.

Evolution of Chips with Security Features for IoT Devices
Interconnected devices and connections increase the exposure to security risks and possess a threat to a device connected. Multiple leading companies are working towards collaborating their entire ecosystems to provide enhanced experiences, services, and security with their products. Adding security functionality in a chip is a significant effort by the chip manufacturers to increase the product’s value. In the present connected IoT market, devices are available at a low cost. Hence these chips enhance the value of the product. Thereby reducing the cost and requirement of additional components.
Prominent players in the ASEAN semiconductor industry associate with companies, which can aid them in embedding security into the chips. This trend is expected to linger and impact the market substantially as the IoT market expands.
Amalgamation of AI and Blockchain Technology to Promote Product Sales
Artificial intelligence is probably the most adopted technology by manufacturers in recent years. The reason being, it offers a reliance on hardware as a core enabler of innovation, especially for memory and logic functions. AI integrated circuits improvise the overall industry architecture while speeding the data movement more efficiently and with increased power across the memory systems. Escalating demand for AI-based components from both public and private sectors is rapidly driving the development of AI in this industry. Artificial intelligence for electric vehicles, advanced driver assistance systems, facial recognition, navigation, personal assistant, etc., creates ample market opportunities for the key ASEAN semiconductor market players.
Similarly, blockchain technology minimizes the cost of transactions and enables traceability and transparency in supply chain processes. Moreover, blockchain's decentralized ledger allows increased transparency over the essential data that results in better accountability and traceability within the manufacturing process.
Lack in Intellectual Property (IP) Protection Rights Obstructs Growth in Industry
Intellectual Property (IP) protection plays an essential role in offering the IP owners a competitive edge and secured return on investment for innovations. ASEAN countries have become a popular destination for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) with rapid development while creating ample promising business opportunities. To secure sustainable economic growth and achieve high-income status, the ASEAN countries need to modify their basic manufacturing process and export commodities pointing towards innovative and high-value goods and services. Therefore, to attain these factors, the ASEAN countries will need to design a strong framework for protecting intellectual property rights and integrate profoundly into global and regional research and development (R & R&D) networks and manufacturing value chain.
Memory Devices Segment to Experience Highest CAGR with Wider Range of Applications
Demand for memory devices would grow significantly over the forecast period. The growth is owed by the ongoing technological developments such as virtual reality and cloud computing in modern end-user appliances. Key market players massive capital spending on the memory devices to support new applications such as enterprise solid-state drives (SSDs), graphics, and other complexes, coupled with real-time workload functions.
Logic devices are anticipated to witness progressive market growth in the coming years, with rising demand from the consumer electronics, data processing, and networking sector for application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) and application-specific signal processor (ASSP) logic chips. Other electronic components such as MCU, MPU, IC, power devices, sensors, etc. are projected to have stable demand across the semiconductor industry, changing preferences about the mix and hybrid technologies amongst the manufacturers.
