||IC Insights Expects Big Changes to 2013 Top 20 Semi Supplier Ranking
The top 20 worldwide semiconductor sales leaders forecast for 2013 include nine suppliers headquartered in the U.S., three in Japan, three in Europe, three in Taiwan, and two in South Korea.
The top-20 ranking includes three pure-play foundries (TSMC, GlobalFoundries, and UMC) and five fabless companies. IC foundries are included in the top-20 semiconductor supplier ranking because IC Insights has always viewed the ranking as a top supplier list, not as a marketshare ranking, and realizes that in some cases semiconductor sales are double counted.With many of our clients being vendors to the semiconductor industry, excluding large IC manufactures like the foundries would leave significant "holes" in the list of top semiconductor suppliers.
