The New IT Item

Ahh, semiconductors. We’ve all heard about them, but what are they, and why are they so hyped up? Semiconductors are silicon or germanium-based materials that when combined with impurities, can produce conductivity, AKA electricity. Likewise, they are essential for powering computers, smartphones, vehicles, energy sources, and plenty more technologies.

Societal changes like remote work have generated more demand for computation, data storage and wireless products, explaining the demand surge for semiconductors. Despite chip shortages, the industry revenues are estimated to reach $1,033.5 billion USD by 2031 and register a CAGR of 6.21% between 2022 and 2031.
