“Thought Report” on the Semiconductor Industry

Overview of the Chip Industry including Trends, Technologies, and Start-Ups

Palo Alto, CA – January 16, 2018 – Menalto Advisors is pleased to announce its newest “Thought Report” on the topic of “An Overview of the Semiconductor Industry.”

The semiconductor industry is a sizable market (over $400 billion), but more significantly it has been, and remains, the driving force behind the electronics industry. Products such as smartphones, tablets, notebook PCs, servers, gaming systems, smart speakers, and autonomous vehicles would not be possible without the enormous improvements in semiconductor technologies that have occurred during the past few decades. Despite this, the semiconductor industry is now generally viewed as mature, with only modest projected growth, consolidation, and many VCs no longer interested in the sector. The industry also faces a variety of issues including fewer start-ups and the potential end of Moore’s law (transistor shrinking).

Given the importance of semiconductor technology and that there are still a large number of chip start-ups with highly innovative solutions, we wrote a report on the semiconductor industry. The 200+ page report includes:

  • Highlights of the semiconductor industry, including growth, issues, recent public company acquisitions, investments, and other topics
  • A review of major semiconductor segments including processors, memory, FPGAs, analog, MEMS, wireless, wireline, and optical
  • Summaries of recent M&A transactions and activity
  • Brief profiles of more than 100 private semiconductor companies

To request a copy of the report, please contact one of the senior bankers at Menalto Advisors or send an email request to info@menaltoadvisors.com.
