For chip makers such as Intel, they are about to receive a $25 billion subsidy from the U.S. government, mainly to encourage companies to move production lines back to the United States, which is included in the 2021 fiscal year budget starting in October.
According to a report issued by the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation (Information Technology and Innovation Foundation,ITIF) of the United States,The global market share of us semiconductor manufacturers in 2019 is 47%, followed by Korean companies with 19% market share and Japanese companies with 10%.
U.S. chip makers account for only 12% of global usage of semiconductors, most of which come from non-wafer design companies such as Nvidia and Qualcomm.
By contrast, Chinese manufacturers account for 15% of global usage of chips and are expected to grow to 24% in 10 years, meaning China may become the world's largest supplier of chips.
Notably, in early June, the American Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA) also planned to seek $37 billion from the federal government to build chip factories in the United States to safeguard the competitiveness of the semiconductor industry in the United States, including subsidies for new chip factories, assistance to states seeking to attract semiconductor investment, and increased research funding (SIA plans to apply for $37 billion in subsidies to keep the U.S. technology leader).
