Global silicon industry trends: Inventories expected to fall in the first half of the year

Market research firm IDC expects global semiconductor revenue to decline year-on-year in the first three quarters of this year, turning positive in the fourth quarter and declining about 5.3% for the full year. IDC expects inventory adjustments to begin in the first half of 2022 and not bottom out until the first half of 2023, with growth in segments such as automotive and communications, but declines in storage, data centre and the Internet of Things.

Overall, semiconductor revenues will not turn positive until the fourth quarter of 2023, with revenues growing 7.5% annually, and global semiconductor revenues are expected to recover and reach a new record in 2024. Foundry revenue will be relatively flat in 2023, edging down 1.8% year over year for the full year, while TSMC will outperform the semiconductor industry as a whole. Moreover, the memory recession has been severe this year, with DRAM and NAND revenues both expected to decline by more than 20% annually.

According to recently released data from the Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA), the global semiconductor industry reported sales of $41.3 billion in January 2023, down 5.2% from December 2022 and down 18.5% from January 2022. China declined 8.0% month-on-month and 31.6% year-on-year. "While full-year 2022 sales reached record highs, the global semiconductor market began to witness a significant decline in the second half of the year that continued into the first month of 2023," said John Neuffer, President and CEO of SIA.
