Mar. 17, 2023 /SemiMedia/ -- According to reports, in January and February 2023, China's integrated circuit (IC) production fell by 17%.

The report pointed out that China's integrated circuit production in January and February totaled 44.3 billion, compared with 57.3 billion in the same period last year.

The decline in the first two months reflected the impact of economic headwinds and U.S. trade sanctions on the world's largest chip market.

In addition, the report also pointed out that due to weak consumer demand, China's microcomputer shipments in the first two months of this year fell by 21.9% year-on-year to 46 million units, while China's smartphone shipments fell by 14.1% year-on-year during the same period.
