Supercharged growth of mainland China: 19 of the world’s 20 fastest-growing chip companies, reports Bloomberg

19 of the world’s 20 fastest-growing chip companies in the past four quarters were from mainland China, compared with just eight in the same period last year, reports Bloomberg.

“China’s chip industry is growing faster than anywhere else in the world, after US sanctions on local champions from Huawei Technologies Co. to Hikvision spurred appetite for home-grown components,” says the report.

“That supercharged growth underscores how tensions between Washington and Beijing are transforming the global $550 billion semiconductor industry — a sector that plays an outsized role in everything from defense to the advent of future technologies like AI and autonomous cars. In 2020, the US began restricting sales of American technology to companies like Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corp. and Hangzhou Hikvision Digital Technology Co., successfully containing their growth — but also fueling a boom in Chinese chip-making and supply.”
