DIGITIMES Research projects that the global foundry revenue will grow at a CAGR of 11.3% from 2023 through 2028, driven by demand from 5G and EV applications.

Macroeconomic and geopolitical uncertainties continue to affect the foundry industry's development while the rapid rise of high-performance computing (HPC) applications also propels foundries' research of advanced fabrication and packaging technologies.

Amid the semiconductor market downturn, the 2023 global foundry revenue is set to decline to US$121.5 billion, down 13.8%. Going into 2024, the global foundry revenue may show a rebound but poor macroeconomic conditions on top of geopolitical risks will continue to curtail the foundry industry's growth.

Despite the short-term headwinds, the foundry industry still enjoys strong HPC chip demand as well as increasing semiconductor usage in 5G and EV applications. Furthermore, thanks to the ongoing trends of in-house chip development, IDMs continuing to outsource their chip production and new foundry capacities becoming available, the outlook for the foundry industry's mid-to-long-term growth remains promising.
