From January to May this year, the cumulative sales of semiconductor equipment in Japan exceeded 75.6 billion, setting a record for the same period of the previous year.
According to a report by Taiwanese media Money DJ, the cumulative sales of semiconductor equipment in Japan from January to May this year exceeded 75.6 billion yuan, setting a record for the same period in the past year.
Statistics from the Semiconductor Manufacturing Equipment Association of Japan (SEAJ) show that in May 2022, sales of semiconductor manufacturing equipment in Japan were 307.718 billion yen. By May 2022, this figure has maintained a 17-month consecutive increase. From January to May 2022, the cumulative sales of semiconductor equipment in Japan exceeded 1 trillion yen.
Shares of Japanese semiconductor companies rose markedly. According to data from Yahoo Finance, as of June 24, shares of Japanese semiconductor maker Tokyo Weilitech rose 2.16%, Japanese semiconductor testing equipment supplier Advantest shares rose 1.12%, Japanese wafer dicing machine maker Disco shares rose 4.29%, Japan Semiconductor And panel maker Screen Holdings shares rose 1.81%.
As early as July 2021, the Semiconductor Manufacturing Equipment Association of Japan (SEAJ) released a 7-page semiconductor and flat panel display (FPD) manufacturing equipment market forecast report, which expects semiconductor manufacturing equipment sales to continue to grow over the next three years.
With current data, the report's predictions are correct. In May 2022, the cumulative sales of semiconductor equipment in Japan has exceeded 1 trillion yen, and this number is still growing. The technological progress of society has promoted the development of the semiconductor industry, and semiconductor equipment is inseparable from various fields such as smart devices, deployment of 5G communications, and the Internet of Things for industrial equipment.
The development of Japan's semiconductor market may be positive, but Japan is currently facing a serious problem of brain drain in the semiconductor industry. Whether Japan can grasp this momentum is still unknown.
