Topic:Semiconductor Industry – the Blue Ocean in a New World Economy
The recent COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated shift to a new world economy, one which is virtual and being ‘connected’, enabled significantly by technology. Semiconductor contents are now prevalent in today’s consumer lifestyle products, such as the indispensable mobile phones, the internet of things in house appliances and the smart automotive equipped with multitudes of safety sensors. On the other hand, industry players are leveraging advances in robotics, sensors and semiconductor enabled artificial intelligence to deliver better products and personalized services at competitive cost.
This, in turn, further transformed the semiconductor industry into a vastly expanded blue ocean, for aspiring, talented career seekers. The presentation aims to provide brief overview of the semiconductor market and its relevance in today and tomorrow’s world. It will also introduce Lam Research, a leading capital equipment supplier in the semiconductor industry, and share its perspective on skills needed in the industry.
