The exponential spread of COVID-19 worldwide has had an adverse impact on the semiconductor industry with manufacturing facilities temporarily shut, leading to a significant slowdown in the production. The outbreak could result in disruption across the ecosystem with several supply chain participants shifting their production facilities outside China, thereby reducing their over-reliance on China. Lockdowns imposed by the governments in the wake of the Covid-19 outbreak has not only affected manufacturing but also hauled consumer demand for semiconductor devices. Our analysts predict a decline in semiconductor revenue by over 1% in 2020 as compared to that in 2019. The report will account for Covid19 as a key market contributor.
