The electronics industry today is one of the largest and key global industries. Contemporary society uses a vast array of electronic devices built in automated or semi-automated factories. Products are primarily assembled from metal-oxidesemiconductor (MOS) transistors and integrated circuits (IC), the latter principally produced by photolithography and often on printed circuit boards in wafer fabs.
The central driving force behind the entire electronics industry is the semiconductor industry sector, with sales exceeding $500 billion yearly. Electronics has a high-tech profile, is very knowledge and R&D intensive, and is characterized by high entry costs (high capital intensity).
The electronics industry consists of several key components, including:
Consumer electronics (including programmable digital circuits, multimedia, video surveillance systems)
Industrial electronics (including power electronics, electronic technological systems, control systems)
Radioelectronics (marine electronics, radiocommunication, and radar technology)
Microelectronics, photonics, and nanotechnologies
Microsystems and electronic systems
In this webinar we will identify the role of (i) East and Southeast Asia economies and (ii) airborne trade in the global value chain in electronics using the data available in the IHS Markit Global Trade Analytics Suite (GTAS), primarily data reported by individual states from IHS Markit Global Trade Atlas (GTA), as well as forecast from the IHS Markit GTAS Forecasting database.
