The Japanese market for semiconductors posted a good year in 2014 after going through decline in recent years. The Japanese semiconductor market faces tough competition from markets in China, Taiwan and South Korea and is expected to grow only marginally over the coming years to 2019.

The massive earthquake and tsunami in Japan, with its devastating human and social consequences, has impacted the Japanese semiconductor industry. No doubt that Japan used to be a pioneer and leader in the global chip industry whose contributions were valued by every semiconductor company, every supplier and every fab in the world.

After years of watching Asia's chip industry shift towards Taiwan and China, Japanese companies are once again investing heavily in semiconductors. NEC, Sony, Renesas Technology, Toshiba and others are in the midst of building or expanding fabrication facilities, or "fabs," and other plants. The companies are driven in part by sheer competitive necessity. The construction activity is concentrated on erecting new fabs - or expanding a few existing ones - that process wafers with a 300-millimeter diameter rather than the older 200-millimeter versions. These larger wafers allow manufacturers to produce about twice as many chips without inflating their operating budgets, thereby cutting costs immensely.

Intel Corporation, Toshiba, Samsung and STMicroelectronics are the biggest players in the industry. Japanese companies need to keep pace with their rivals overseas. Manufacturers like Intel, IBM and Texas Instruments are expanding their own 300-millimeter operations. Many Japanese companies are also expanding operations and creating alliances in China to capitalize on low costs and local demand.
