Taiwan’s electronics industry is today dominated by a small number of large groups. In addition to the capital intensive semiconductor and display companies the country also has a significant number of ODMs which hold a major share in the global production of computer and communications products. Taiwanese companies are also important in the production of electronic components. In recent years the Taiwanese electronics industry has undergone a major structural change with the leading domestic companies relocating production offshore, and principally to China to reduce costs. The country has however retained a strong domestic manufacturing presence in particular in the area of semiconductors. In 2015, electronics output declined by 0.9% growth in the important IC segment helping offset more pronounced declines across other segments of the industry. Semiconductor output increased by 15.6% in 2014, but by only 1.3% in 2015 this despite growth of 3.2% in the core IC segment. In line with anticipated slowdown in the global market semiconductor production is forecast to decline by 2.4% in 2016.
This report is designed to provide the user with access to individual country data or product information.
