The global semiconductor market is expected to grow 16% on-year this year, according to analyst firm World Semiconductor Trade Statistics (WSTS).

The market will grow to be worth US$611.2 billion this year, WSTS noted. Its growth projection also increased from the 13.1% it gave late last year.

Demand for chips is high due to widened spending on AI infrastructure. GPU maker Nvidia and its memory supplier SK Hynix are seeing their earnings skyrocket from high demand for AI processors and the high-bandwidth memory (HBM) used with them.

According to WSTS, revenue from logic is expected to increase 10.7% on-year while revenue from memory is to surge 76.8% on-year.

However, revenue from analog semiconductors, discrete, light devices such as LED and sensors are expected to contract by 2.7%, 7.8%, 1%, and 7.4%, respectively, the firm noted.

This is likely due to the delayed demand recovery in automobiles, industrial devices, and consumer electronics, which all use these chips.

By region, the US is expected to see an on-year increase of 25.1%. Asia Pacific, which includes South Korea and China, is projected to grow 17.5% on-year. In Japan, based on the US dollar, will contract by 1.1% but grow 4.6% based on the yen over the same period, according to WSTS.

Meanwhile, in 2025, the global semiconductor market is expected to be worth US$687.3 billion, from growth in all chip segments.

WSTS makes its assessment based on real sales and projection data of its 48 chip-making members, and is considered highly reliable.
