Top 10 Semiconductor Manufacturing Solutions Companies in Europe - 2022

Europe’s semiconductor industry has been plagued with chip shortages for a couple of years. The issue was only exacerbated by the covid-19 pandemic which disrupted worldwide semiconductor supply chains, precluding the lion’s share of players in the market from operating efficiently. Europe’s automotive industry, in particular, has been severely affected by the chip shortage. Considering Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the challenges have been accentuated even more as European nations rely on both countries for neon supply, which is essential for the lasers used to develop state-of-the-art chips.

According to the European Semiconductor Industry Association (ESIA), Europe’s faltering share of global chip manufacturing will drop by two per cent by 2025. A similar scenario could be observed in Europe’s wafer production domain, which is heading towards a low production rate in the coming years as well.

To counter these challenges, the EU this year proposed the European Chips Act, intended to function as a framework giving the Commission more authority to steer and mould Europe’s role in the global semiconductor supply chains. It is expected that through the Chips Act, Europe will gain a stronger hold in the global semiconductor firmament, improving production efficiencies and minimising risks of future supply chain disruptions in the region.

This edition of Semiconductor Review Europe brings the spotlight on the key developments in Europe’s semiconductor manufacturing domain and how companies are leveraging contemporary technologies to mitigate the risks associated with mercurial market scenarios.

This edition also features thought leadership articles by AdhirMattu, CIO at Marvell and Dr Hans-Jurgen Braun, Senior Vice President of Operations at Vitesco, sharing their views on how growth opportunities in the semiconductor arena will enable Europe's businesses to scale their operations and how AI will redefine the semiconductor manufacturing segment.

Along with that, the edition features innovative semiconductor manufacturing solutions companies, including SCREEN Semiconductor Solutions, Millux, and PEER Group. These companies offer groundbreaking manufacturing solutions, precision laser technologies, and factory automation software, helping Europe’s semiconductor industry navigate the myriad of challenges associated with node manufacturing, first-to-market products, and factory automation systems.

We present to you the “Top 10 Semiconductor Manufacturing Solution Providers in Europe - 2022.”

We hope the valuable insights from industry thought leaders and the cutting-edge solutions from the features companies in this edition help you make informed decisions. Let us know your thoughts / write to us about how you are leveraging these semiconductor manufacturing solutions in your organizations.
