May 10, 2024 /SemiMedia/ -- According to the Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA), chip production in the United States will explode in the next few years, helping to ease the country's semiconductor industry's dependence on East Asia.

SIA noted that U.S. semiconductor manufacturing capacity will triple by 2032, which will increase the U.S. share of semiconductor manufacturing to 14% from the current 10%.

The surge would reverse a decline in U.S. domestic chip production, which has been shifting to Asia in recent decades.

The report pointed out that without government funding programs such as the Chip Act, the U.S. share would shrink to 8%.

SIA CEO John Neuffer said, "We have always said that the Chip Act is a strong first step, but we need to take more steps to achieve this goal. Our industry fully recognizes that manufacturing is overly concentrated in East Asia."

SIA predicts that by 2032, the United States will produce 28% of advanced logic chips, with Taiwan region accounting for 47%, South Korea accounting for 9%, and mainland China accounting for 3%.

Additionally, the report noted that the United States is not the only country expanding chip manufacturing. Mainland China is building about 30 new facilities for the chip supply chain, surpassing the 26 in the United States. In addition, there are eight such projects underway in the EU.
