NEW YORK, March 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

The Worldwide and Taiwanese Semiconductor Industry, 2013 Recap and 2014 Forecast

Thanks to good sales of smart handheld devices, the global semiconductor industry grew 3.3% year-on-year in 2013. And with the global economy showing signs of revivals, the industry is estimated to see 4.2% year-on-year growth in 2014. The high adoption of mid-to-low-end smart handheld devices helped the Taiwanese industry's shipment value top over NT$1.7 trillion (US$50 billion; US$1 =NT$30.3) in 2013, up 16.2% compared to 2012. In the face of stern competition, the Taiwanese industry is expected to witness a slowdown in 2014 but still manage to score an 8.3% year-on-year growth. This report profiles the development of semiconductor industry in foundry, IDM (Integrated Device Manufacturer), IC manufacturing and design sectors, and examines key factors that may take their toll on the industry in the long run.
