On April 6, the Singapore government announced the suspension of non-essential services and industries from April 7 to May 4 and listed 10 industries that are allowed to operate normally, including key manufacturing industries.

In mid-March, the lockdown measures in Malaysia and the Philippines had affected the manufacturing and delivery of many semiconductor companies. Among them, Micron's factories in Muar and Penang, Malaysia were briefly closed; Texas Instruments' factory in Malaysia were operating with a substantial reduction in production and adjusted the delivery date of 3% of the products; Cypress' chip packaging site near Manila, Philippines, was forced to suspend production. In addition to these three companies, many other electronic component manufacturers also encountered the same problem at the time. It was not until Malaysia announced that chip manufacturing was an essential industry, the production conditions of these chip manufacturers began to improve.

Compared with Malaysia and the Philippines, chip manufacturers expect Singapore’s lockdown to have a smaller impact, because local authorities have clearly declared the semiconductor industry as a key manufacturing industry, which means that semiconductor companies’ manufacturing in Singapore will remain operational.

According to public reports, Micron's production facilities in Singapore are still in operation, and other manufacturers have not yet issued relevant announcements. Therefore, from the current situation, the semiconductor industry in Singapore is optimistic, at least much better than the situation in Malaysia and the Philippines.
