Taiwanese chip industry must start to fight back

In Electronic Infomation Category: R | on March   6, 2011

Taiwan announced a plan to adjust the islands troubled memory chip industry, in order to create a sufficient and REF02AP datasheet and leading South Korean chip industry company challenge the two major competitors.

Taiwans strategy is to allow local chip companies and REF02AP price and the Japan-US alliance counterparts, and REF02AP suppliers and occupies half the South Korean chip industry, Samsung Electronics (SamsungElectronicsCo.) and Hynix Semiconductor (HynixSemiconductorInc.) to compete. Taiwans chip companies in recent years has become a bad day too, because these companies produce dynamic random access memory (DRAM) prices kept falling. This product is personal computers and other electronic products, major parts, used for temporary memory storage.

Minister Yin Chi-ming of Taiwan Ministry of Economic Affairs on Thursday released an outline of the plan, announced Ministry of Economic Affairs will set up a company called Taiwan Memory Company (TaiwanMemoryCompany) holding companies. Although Yiin did not disclose the specific amount, but the government may inject funds to the new company, and the new company will be adjusted on the island six chip companies or mergers and acquisitions. To the Japanese company will also Elpida (ElpidaMemoryInc.) and U.S. Micron Technology, Inc. (MicronTechnologyInc.) for technical upgrading, however, did not announce the plan Yiin specific timetable.

Chip industry for many years, in Taiwan, was ordered to form a new company John Hsuan (JohnHsuan) said that this is a difficult task, but the plan is feasible.

DRAMeXchange global electronic marketplace (DRAMexchange) analyst Yang Yaxin (JoyceYang) said that if the Taiwan government to achieve their goals, the global chip industry would be divided into two camps ─ ─ South Korean companies and non-Korean firms.

From the Taiwan governments decision not difficult to see how to rewrite the economic crisis is the basic pattern of the industry, and the full development of this field is the technology industry would have national and regional competition of the land. Prior to that, with the help of government support, the industry has a large number of competitors, especially in Taiwan, resulting in duplication of investment, excess supply, prices are low recurring condition.

Research company iSuppliCorp. To provide the data show that last year, as DRAM prices fall and global sales of such products is only 23.6 billion U.S. dollars, the cumulative loss of 70 billion U.S. dollars. Share of global DRAM output loss of about a quarter of the Taiwanese companies 3.0 billion dollars. January of this year, the only remaining large-scale chip companies in Europe Qimonda (QimondaAG) filed for bankruptcy protection.

Morgan Stanley (MorganStanley) analyst in Taiwan, Wang Anya (FrankWang) said, DRAM industry is going through a worst crisis, which is beyond the scope of the experience of corporate managers.

Taiwan is in the vortex center of the trouble. And other economies is not the same, with 23 million people of Taiwan will be betting its future in the technology industry all over. Taiwan-funded enterprises accounted for the production of notebook computers for 93% of global output, and its mobile phones, flat panel display and semiconductor production also accounted for a large proportion of the world.

Chip industry emerged in the 90s of last century; to 2002, the Taiwan government to establish the industry as the pillar industries. Generous government subsidies and tax cuts supported by the three largest DRAM company in Taiwan has invested 20 billion U.S. dollars to expand production capacity. Today, three companies in the economic slump has been hard hit, their total market value of less than 20 billion dollars.

South Korean government as early as ten years ago, a series of industry consolidation, to create out of the Samsung Electronics and Hynix Semiconductor these two global giant.

Contrast, the Taiwan government is only now beginning to restrict the tax cuts and subsidies to the industry measures. Affected by Taiwan enterprises are too small that you can not develop the next generation of technology, only in some commercial products have to compete.

Now, the Taiwanese governments goal is more direct intervention to save the chip industry. Taiwan Memory Taiwan companies to merge all six chip companies, namely: ProMOS Technologies (ProMOSTechnologiesInc.), Nanya Technology (NanyaTechnologyCorp.), Powerchip Semiconductor Corporation (PowerchipSemiconductorCorp.), Winbond Electronics Corporation (WinbondElectronicsCorp.) , Rexchip Electronics Co., Ltd. (RexchipElectronicsCorp.) and Inotera Memories, Inc. (InoteraMemoriesInc.). A combined entity will have greater pricing power, and better and Korean companies to compete.

This message to Taiwan DRAM companys stock hit a shot in the arm. Thursday, Powerchip Semiconductor of Taiwan stock market closed soared 6%. Elpida, the Tokyo stock market closed rose 5%. However, the size of two smaller Korean enterprises, the strength of the weakness of Hynix Semiconductor closed down 3.7%.

Of Elpida and Micron both Japan and the U.S. the only major DRAM manufacturers, the Taiwanese memory company ushered in a more powerful industry consortium set up the opportunity, such an alliance can lead the market Korean companies started to compete more effectively. Elpida said in a statement issued by e-mail that the company will carefully plan the Taiwan side of the main issues to consider acceding to the merger.

And Nanya Technology have a joint venture with Micron Technology said the company will continue to cooperate with Taiwan government. The company, based in Boise, Idaho-based company said earlier that the company has provided Taiwan Memory 2,000 patents to help Taiwan set up a new R & D center.

Micron spokesman said Thursday in a prepared statement, expressed confidence in the existing Micron research and development joint business case, this new R & D centers in Taiwan have the ability to develop a world leading technology.

Samsung Electronics and Hynix Semiconductor declined to comment on the matter. Some analysts believe that Taiwan

government intervention is not a good thing. Taiwans "Wealth" (WealthMagazine) economic commentator and publisher of Gold River, said Xie, like other countries, like the auto and other industries, Taiwans DRAM industry has also received government support, and during the industry consolidation, but often result in high productivity , the phenomenon of low prices to continue; The industry needs to see the company go bankrupt in order to regain profitability.
