DUBLIN, April 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Semiconductor Industry - M&A Analysis and Future Trends by Acquirer Type (IDM, Fabless, Foundry), Deal Value, End-User, and Region" mergers & acquisitions to their offering.
This report analyzed a significant number of Semiconductor M&A deals in the semiconductor industry during 2014-2015 with the total value of deals to cross USD 120 Billion in 2015 itself.
Semiconductor companies have found it necessary to increase their scale of operations to ensure they can provide their customers with the required products and services. The scale refers to both production capacity as well as human resources in the required areas. As the semiconductor manufacturing technology has advanced, the cost of manufacturing equipment has also increased significantly. Thus, the fixed costs associated with developing a chip have increased. These factors have led to an increase in the number of semiconductor M&A deals.
Some of the big ticket deals announced during 2014-2015 were: acquisition of Broadcom Corporation (U.S.) by Avago Technologies Ltd (U.S.), acquisition CSR plc (U.K.) by Qualcomm Inc. (U.S.), acquisition of Altera Corporation (U.S.) by Intel Corporation (U.S.), acquisition of Freescale Semiconductor Ltd (U.S.) by NXP Semiconductors NV (Netherlands), acquisition of Atmel Corporation (U.S.) by Dialog Semiconductor PLC (U.K.), and acquisition of SanDisk Corporation (U.S.) by Western Digital Corporation (U.S.), among others.
A key requirement for a successful Semiconductor M&A deal in semiconductor industry is identifying the acquisition target. The process of identifying acquisition targets should take place with a complete strategic review of the acquirer to identify key value drivers of the business and establishing a set of strategic goals. Semiconductor companies that serve maturing end user segments should target companies that can help them sustain the industry pricing pressures, improve profitability, and increase their market share.
North American companies, more specifically U.S. companies were highly active in the semiconductor M&A landscape. A majority of the acquirers and the acquirees were based in North America. In the APAC region, China bolstered its semiconductor acquisition with aggressive M&A activity.
The companies such as Intel Corporation (U.S.), Broadcom Corporation (U.S.), Qualcomm Incorporated (U.S.), Mediatek, Inc. (Taiwan), Avago Technologies Ltd (U.S.), SK Hynix, Inc. (South Korea), Micron Technology, Inc. (U.S.), Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd (South Korea), Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co., Ltd (Taiwan), and GLOBALFOUNDRIES Inc. (U.S.) have adopted various strategies such as partnerships, agreements, contracts, mergers and acquisitions, and new product developments to achieve business growth.
