Market Overview

Japan has emerged as presently the fourth largest market in the world for the manufacturing of semiconductors and gross sales. Since, Japan was the world's largest semiconductor producer, accounting for more than half of global semiconductor fabrication of stored memory semiconductor products such as dynamic random access memory, or DRAM, and completely outperformed its competitors in terms of market valuation and demanded patents. However, Japan now accounts for only 9% of the global semiconductor production according to information provided in World Production Forecast for Semiconductors, Japanese Electronics, and Information Technology Industries Association (JEITA) Semiconductor Briefing.


Furthermore, the Semiconductor Equipment Association of Japan (“SEAJ”) announced that in 2021 semiconductor manufacturing equipment sales in Japan reached a Japan record level of $36 billion.  Semiconductor equipment sales in Japan have grown fourfold in the last ten years.  SEAJ forecasts stable 8% annual growth of semiconductor sales in FY2024.


The demand for Japan's logic semiconductor manufacturing line is expected to increase as a result of the rise from the electric vehicle semiconductor market, in which Japan competes fiercely, and industrial semiconductors, a future growth market. Power semiconductors are also essential components for electric vehicles (EVs) as well as reducing greenhouse gas emissions initiatives because they enable it to feasible to utilize electric power efficiently. In terms of sales, the top ten manufacturers of power semiconductors in 2021 included Mitsubishi Electric, Fuji Electric, Toshiba Corporation, Renesas Electronics, and ROHM. About 3-6% of the world's power semiconductor market is accounted for by Japanese manufacturers.
