Short circuit: International competition and import penetration will reduce revenue and limit growth

Over the past five years, this industry has expanded despite continued offshoring and greater competition from US and East Asian manufacturers, which offer lower-priced products due to more competitive labour costs. The primary catalyst for industry expansion has been robust demand for industry products both domestically and abroad as well as an increase in third-party manufacturing facilities. Consequently, over the five years to 2018, industry revenue is expected to rise. Similar trends are expected over the five years to 2023, although with much more subdued expansion. Industry manufacturers, which are typically small- to mid-sized enterprises, will find it difficult to match the research and development (R&D) spending of multinational more.

Industry Threats & Opportunities

  • Industry performance depends on trade trends, such as the competitiveness of exports and the extent of import penetration
  • Lower R&D has compromised the industry’s ability to compete globally
  • In an effort to remain relevant and competitive, some industry operators will invest in R&D
  • Industry Report - Industry Key Buyers Chapter

    The Semiconductor and Other Electronic Component Manufacturing industry in Canada exhibits a low market share concentration. The top four industry companies are expected to generate less than 10.0% of industry revenue in 2018. In fact, no single operator is expected to capture more than 5.0% of revenue in 2018. Canadian manufacturers of semiconductors and electronic inputs are typically small- to mid-sized operators that command a negligible share of industry revenue. Many of these operators are contract manufacturers that generate revenue on a temporary basis, further undermining potential consolidation activity.According to data from Statistics Canada, the average industry operator is very small. In 2018, 25.8% o...purchase to read more.
