The global foundry industry's combined revenues in 2023 are expected to shrink more than 10% on year after a growth of nearly 30% in 2022.

The global foundry industry saw its revenues perform brilliantly in 2022, breaking US$140 billion thanks to a chip supply-demand imbalance and the fact that customers are signing long-term agreements (LTA) to secure their supply.

However, the 2023 revenues may slip from 2022 because of factors including the global economy has continued to weaken, the consumer electronics industry is taking longer to correct its inventory than expected, chip demand remains sluggish and geopolitical influences stay fierce.

The industry is expected to return to growth in 2024, but chip demand in the year is still expected to be covered with uncertainties.
