WEET Development Status and Government Policies of China's Semiconductor Diode Industry

1. Development status of China's semiconductor diode industry

According to the public data of the China Electronic Information Industry Statistical Yearbook, with the continuous development of China's semiconductor diode industry as a whole, the sales volume has increased from 285.6 billion in 2014 to 1,695 billion in 2018. Although from 2014 to 2016, due to the slowdown in the growth of the semiconductor market in mainland China, the substantial decline in the computer system industry, and the slowdown in the growth momentum of smartphones, the overall sales volume has declined. The overall market size of the semiconductor diode industry in China Maintain the upward growth trend. Especially in the past three years, the market expansion of emerging application fields such as the Internet of Things, cloud computing, big data, intelligent manufacturing, intelligent transportation, and medical electronics has prompted the rapid development trend of explosive growth in the market scale of China's semiconductor diode industry since 2017.

China is the world's largest semiconductor diode market, and there is a huge market demand for semiconductor diodes. Due to the performance of domestic products, most industries will not include domestic semiconductor diodes in the selection of raw materials. The "ZTE Incident" in 2018 accelerated the localization of semiconductor devices in various industries such as China's communications, automobiles, and electronics. After decades of technological research and development, the level of China's semiconductor diode manufacturing technology has stabilized, and some products have been exported on the basis of import substitution. In the context of the macroeconomic downturn in recent years, the export value of China's semiconductor diodes (except photodiodes or light-emitting diodes) from January to November 2020 was US$2.275 billion.

With the expansion of the market share of downstream industries in the industrial chain such as electronic complete machines and consumer electronic products, there is still considerable room for development in the semiconductor diode market. Huge market demand has prompted many R&D forces and funds to invest in this field. The fixed investment in China's semiconductor discrete device manufacturing industry has increased from 10.74 billion yuan in 2014 to 56.43 billion yuan in 2018, and semiconductor diodes accounted for the highest proportion of shipments. The market segment of the company has been favored by a large number of investors, and the capital boom has further promoted the rapid development of the industry.

2. Analysis of relevant policies in China's semiconductor diode industry

In recent years, the state’s support for the semiconductor industry has continued to increase. The government work report of the First Session of the 13th National People’s Congress will list “promoting the development of integrated circuits, fifth-generation mobile communications, aircraft engines, new energy vehicles, new materials and other industries”. In the first place in the development of the real economy, it highlights the important position of the semiconductor industry in the national strategy. In the future, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and related departments will continue to promote the development of industrial semiconductor materials, chips, devices and IGBT modules, and adjust and improve the policy implementation rules according to the industry development situation to better support the development of the industry. Intensify industrial chain cooperation through industry associations, in-depth promotion of industry-university-research collaboration, and promote the technological iteration and application promotion of China's industrial semiconductor materials, chips, devices and IGBT module industries.
