Halt of Import Activities from China to Impact Growth amid COVID-19 Pandemic
The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has severely impacted various industries and the technology industry is no exception. It is trying to get back on track owing to the effects of the down cycle occurred in 2019 and the US-China trade war. As China is considered to be the major hub for the production of numerous components required in vehicles, various regions worldwide are unable to get hold of these parts and components because of lockdown measures in the country. As per the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), in 2020, a 2% decline in imports from China was observed. These factors may obstruct growth.

Drivers and Restraints
Increasing Investments by Companies in Developing Advanced Devices to Boost Growth
The surging population and rapid urbanization are further resulting in the increasing household disposable income levels across the globe. It is, in turn, creating a high demand for advanced and regular consumer electronics devices. Appliances and devices, such as refrigerators, TVs, washing machines, and smartphones contain Integrated Circuit (IC) chips for their efficient functioning. Therefore, a large number of companies, especially Huawei, Apple, and Samsung are investing huge sums in the development of unique devices to fulfil the rising demand for novel devices. These factors are expected to propel the semiconductor market growth in the near future. However, the imposition of trade restrictions by the U.S. with China from 2018 may decline the former’s share and hence, hinder the demand for semiconductors.
Asia Pacific to Remain at Forefront Stoked by Availability of Cost-effective Electronics
Geographically, Asia Pacific held USD 230.43 billion in terms of revenue in 2020. The region is estimated to remain at the forefront because of the surging adoption of various consumer electronics. Additionally, the availability of electronics devices at cheaper rates will also aid growth. On the other hand, North America is expected to grow dynamically backed by the rising investments by reputed firms in RandD activities. As per the Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA), from 1999 to 2019, the expenditure of the U.S. in RandD surged by 6.6%.
