Circuit break: New technology will help the industry recover from previous revenue declines

As with much of Canada's manufacturing sector, industry operators are competing with foreign players that often have lower labour and production costs, as well as higher productivity and manufacturing capabilities. This translates to lower-cost imports, which have continuously threatened the industry. Accordingly, during the current period, industry revenue is expected to fall. Over the five years to 2023, revenue is forecast to rise as new technology continues to drive advancements in semiconductors and the machines that produce them. Ultimately, increasingly specialized products, adherence to international electronics supply chain trends and a persistent push toward research and development will drive industry revenue upward in the more.

Industry Threats & Opportunities

  • Foreign competition will continue to threaten the industry’s domestic position
  • Despite intense import competition, the average industry profit margin has increased slightly
  • Industry operators are anticipated to focus on cost control and efficiency to maximize profitability
  • Industry Report - Industry Key Buyers Chapter

    The Semiconductor Machinery Manufacturing industry in Canada has a moderate level of market share concentration, although it is a very small industry. Larger and more-established machinery manufacturers typically have operations in multiple countries. However, international competition has significantly increased import penetration in the industry and thus foreign goods are projected to satisfy 97.4% of domestic demand in 2018. Essentially, multinational players that dominate global semiconductor machinery production such as Applied Materials Inc. and Lam Research Corporation do not have substantial domestic operations.
