Friday, 18. October 2019 12:49

Dublin, Oct. 18, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Japanese Semiconductor Manufacturing Industry Development and Strategies of Key Players" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

This report covers the current status and future development of the industry as it gears itself towards new application markets such as autonomous vehicles and explores strategies of key players, including Toshiba, Panasonic, Fujitsu, Renesas Electronics, and Sony.

The Japanese semiconductor industry, which previously operated under the IDM (Integrated Device Manufacturer) model, not only was a leader in Asia but also had an unprecedented role in the world. After many years passed, Japan was too slow to adjust to structural changes in the industry, causing it to gradually lose its edge.


  • Development of the Japanese semiconductor brands in the global industry and includes top 10 shipment volume ranking in 2018.
  • Development of major Japanese players, including Toshiba, Panasonic, Fujitsu, Renesas Electronics, and Sony, and touching on their advantages and disadvantages as well as their market and product strategies.
