Taiwan’s integrated circuit industry is expected to outperform global growth in output value in 2016 because of the country’s strong wafer foundry and IC design segments, a Taiwanese research institute said Friday.
The output of Taiwan’s IC industry is expected to grow 2.4 percent in 2016 from a year earlier to NT$2.31 trillion (US$68.75 billion), according to the Industrial Technology Research Institute’s Industrial Economics and Knowledge Center (IEK).
That will exceed the 1.7 percent year-on-year average growth forecast for the global semiconductor sector, the IEK said. [FULL STORY]
