Electronics - High Tech Industry Trends and Opportunities
The session will combine an insightful sharing and interactive discussion with Ulf Schneider, President of Singapore Semiconductor Industry Association. You will get the valuable insights into the industry trends, Singapore’s role in technology & innovation, as well as the potential business and career opportunities in this dynamic industry.
This Learnsharing session is open for all business leaders, executives, professionals, and students/aspiring professionals.
Electronics-High Tech industry (E-HT) is the one of the most important keys to the new market and economy. Smart phones, digitized consumer electronics, wearable technologies, intelligent buildings, smart infrastructures, robots, artificial intelligence, augmented reality, and many more new economy engines are powered by innovation in semiconductor / electronics. What are the trends and opportunities in this industry?
Singapore's electronics industry has grown from a humble beginning, as the only TV assembly plant in Southeast Asia in the 1960s, into a vital node in the global electronics market. Today, Singapore’s electronics industry is a world-class, innovation-driven hub with cutting edge technology, manufacturing, and business solutions. Singapore accounts for one in 10 Integrated Circuits in the world, and 40% of the global hard disc media are manufactured here. Can Singapore maintain and grow its Electronics-High Tech Industry in the rapidly changing world?
Manufacturing is the largest sector contributor with 19.8% share of Singapore GDP in 2015. The electronics industry has also been a pillar of the economy (at 80,000 workforce - which is 19% of total manufacturing jobs a couple years ago). In addition, the industry creates many spin-off segments, such as precision component manufacturers, chemicals and materials suppliers, electronic manufacturing systems companies, and logistics service providers. The pool of highly qualified talents in Research & Development as well as High Tech Manufacturing is very important to anticipate future demand of the industry. How can we (students/professionals/business) excel in this industry?
