Overview of the global foundry service market

Technavio’s foundry service market research predicts that the market will grow at a CAGR of around 7% during the forecast period. The rising adoption of communication and consumer electronic devices globally is the primary growth driver for this market. The global market for foundry services is anticipated to witness rapid growth during the forecast period due to the increasing number of fabless companies that are outsourcing their chip fabrication process.  

Another key factor that will impel foundry service market growth is the miniaturization of ICs. Technological advances and the advent of compact electronic devices like smartphones, tablets, and wearable technologies have created a massive demand for small-sized ICs. This rising demand for small ICs will compel vendors to update their offerings with more advanced and compact IC chips to suit consumer requirements.
