This research report presents shipment value forecast and recent quarter review of the Taiwanese fabless IC industry. The report includes fabless IC shipment value, product mix, and application mix analyses. The content of this report is based on primary data obtained through interviews with fabless IC designers, and publicly available information such as corporate financial statements.
The report finds that the Taiwanese fabless IC industry's shipment value fell 14.1% year on year in the second quarter of 2015, due to the slowdown in economic growth in developing countries and the low price competition of 3G and 4G chips. Looking ahead to the third quarter, it is expected that the industry's shipment value would have stood at US$4.2 billion, down 9.5% year on year.
