The semiconductor industry is going through a difficult period, which is also applicable from a global perspective. According to CNMO, the latest data shows that global semiconductor sales have declined year on year, and even South Korea, a semiconductor power, has not been spared.
According to media reports, according to the data released by the American Semiconductor Industry Association, the global semiconductor sales in September fell by 3% year on year. It seems that the decline rate is small, but it should be clear that this is the first decline since the beginning of 2020.
As we all know, South Korea's semiconductor industry has always been in the forefront of the world, and the latter is the largest source of income for South Korea's economy. However, according to the data released by the Korean National Bureau of Statistics, the semiconductor output of the country's chip manufacturers in that month decreased by 3.5% year on year, which was further worse than that in August. Other data are not very optimistic. The growth of chip inventory in South Korea is still rising, reaching 54.7% in September. Although semiconductor factory shipments showed signs of stabilization, they decreased by 0.9% year-on-year.
Some media said that since this year, the superposition of epidemic situation and international conflict and other factors has cast a shadow on the profits of Korean chip manufacturers such as Samsung Electronics. In this regard, we can see from the latest financial report of Samsung Electronics that the revenue in the third quarter was 76 trillion won, an increase of 2.7% year on year; The profit was 10.8 trillion won, down 31.7% year on year. It is reported that this is the first time in the past three years that Samsung Electronics' profits have experienced negative year-on-year growth.
