China's semiconductor production reached a record high in July 2021, strengthening production lines and acquiring companies in response to demand

In the midst of a global semiconductor shortage , China's semiconductor production in the first half of 2021 reached 203.6 billion units, up 47.3% year-on-year, according to the South China Morning Post of China Economic Newspaper. On the other hand, it is also reported that the number of automobiles produced in China in July 2021 decreased by 15.8% from the same period of the previous year due to the problem of chip supply.

The Chinese government has achieved monthly production of 31.6 billion units in July 2021 of China's integrated circuit (IC) production, up 41.3% year-on-year, due to soaring demand for semiconductors and increased production capacity. Announced that it has set a new record.

Semiconductor production is one of China's national policies to prepare for intensifying technological competition with the United States. Of China's industrial production, the value added value of the computer, telecommunications, and electronic equipment manufacturing industries increased by 13% year-on-year, exceeding the overall growth rate of industrial production of 6.4%.

Chinese semiconductor companies are making various efforts to increase semiconductor production in response to semiconductor demand. For example, China's Huaian Imaging Device Manufacturer Corporation went bankrupt on May 30, 2021 (PDF file) , but in July 2021 RMB1.66 billion (about 28 billion yen). ), Sold to the state-owned company Rongxin Semiconductor. According to analysts, Rongxin Semiconductor may resume a semiconductor manufacturing project that was suspended due to bankruptcy. It seems that the Chinese government is trying to increase the number of semiconductor production lines as much as possible in response to the recent demand from semiconductor shortages.

In addition, at the end of July 2021, a Chinese company, a semiconductor company under the umbrella of Wingtech, announced that it had acquired a British semiconductor manufacturer.

In addition, foundry SiEn Integrated Circuits, founded by Mr. Chard Chan, the founder of SMIC, the largest chip maker in China, has already started production of 8-inch wafers in Qingdao, China, and now has another 12-inch wafers. It is said that it is in the test of the production line of.

The South China Morning Post predicts that China's focus on semiconductor production will increase China's semiconductor production for automakers and consumer electronics.
