Electronics industry Q2 to be ‘much more subdued’ – predicts SEMI

semiconductor manufacturing

As the electronics industry grapples with production and supply chain issues, new figures published by SEMI from the Global Purchasing Manager Index (PMI) – a key indicator of manufacturing activity – points towards an imminent industry decline.

Mainland China stood out for its “abrupt slowdown”, says the SEMI article, dropping from PMI=51.1 to 40.3 between January and February 2020.

The article says that China’s electronic sector output was “hit hard”, citing a 19% drop from February 2019 to 2020 in composite sales from the 101 Taiwan stock exchange listed OEMs, many of which manufacture on the China mainland. SEMI predicts Q2 growth rates of 2020 to be “much more subdued”.

However, the report noted that some factories are now restoring operations.
