Top 5 Semiconductor Stocks in India

The world is expanding in many ‘non-literal’ ways, especially in terms of technology. Technology was running the world when even when we were going through lock-down, quarantine & WFH. 

But the thing is, we can harness the technological advancements only through products such as electric cars, smartphones, smart TVs and even not so fancy items like a refrigerator, washing machines and more. The fun fact is, that there is a component that is common in the manufacturing of all these products, and that product is semiconductor chips.

These chips have become a great deal for many reasons that we will be discussing in the blog. We will take a look at what precisely are these semiconductor chips, what does its future prospects look like and the stocks that are actively engaged in spaces that require these chips or are involved in manufacturing them. So, Let’s get started. 

Semiconductor Industry Overview 

You must have heard about the semiconductor shortage and how semiconductors are a big deal for so many industries. But what is a semiconductor in the first place? In a scientific sense, the semiconductor is a device made to manage the flow of electricity in various appliances. It is found in many electronic products such as computers, smartphones, gaming hardware, medical equipment and even EVs. It might be hard and too technical to understand how these chips work.

But just so you know, temperature sensors used in ACs are made with semiconductors; these chips control temperatures in rice cookers, they are used in the manufacture of CPUs for personal computers. They are utilised not only in consumer electronics but the chips play a key role in the operations of ATMs, trains and other social infrastructures. 

Not only this, as far as EVs are concerned, a standard one requires hundreds of semiconductor chips. The problem arose when the whole world faced a semiconductor chips shortage. There were many reasons that contributed to this such as the global pandemic, the ongoing war, trade war and more. These chips have become more important over the years.

According to Deloitte, in 2022, the global semiconductor chip industry is expected to reach about USD 600 billion. Also, the chip shortage over the last two years has resulted in a revenue loss of more than USD 500 billion. 

These chips are expected to become more important across different industries because their use is increasing in various products. The supply shortage is expected to remain intact, but additional semiconductor manufacturing facilities are expected to build across the globe.   

The development of artificial intelligence, the internet of things, and related fields have sparked semiconductor demand in the world.
