All modern electronic devices today contain at least one chip. Even simple appliances like water heaters maybe use one or two integrated circuits (ICs). Complex devices such as PCs or automobiles can have hundreds or thousands of chips.

With the effect of the pandemic, while the usage rate of technological devices increases, sales of integrated circuits are expected to break records. IC Insights also estimated that this year’s chip shipments will increase by 9.2% year-on-year to 427.7 billion units.

427.7 billion unit chip sales represent a significant record. To make these numbers more meaningful, there is a difference of 2.2 times compared to ICs shipped in 2010 and 44 times as compared to ICs sold in 1980. Compared to the 391.8 billion chips supplied in 2021, there was a year-on-year growth of 9.2%. In fact, shipments increased by a significant 22% year-on-year in 2021. According to IC Insights, this was a year of padollarm.

World Semiconductor Trade Statistics (WSTS) defines 33 main chip categories. Shipments in only three of these product categories (SRAM, DSP and Gate Array) are predicted to decline. On the other hand, while 30 categories are expected to show positive growth, 12 categories are expected to see large growth rates.

To sum up, chip sales will continue to rise this year and in the years to come. However, according to IC Insights, the IC unit compound annual growth rate (CAGR) will be 7% by 2026, and growth will likely slow down over time.
