One billion chips are produced every day. In 2021, China will set a new record in chip production capacity

Recently, the National Bureau of Statistics announced the production of integrated circuits (chips) in 2021. According to the data, a total of 359.43 billion chips were produced in China throughout the year, with a year-on-year growth of 33.3%.In other words, in the past year, our chip production capacity has reached almost 1 billion a day, which is absolutely a new record, and the year-on-year growth of 33.3%, far higher than the global growth level, which means that China Chip is developing rapidly.In fact, in the past few years, China Core has been in the forefront of the storm, the reason is that the external situation is quite tense, especially ZTE, Huawei and other events, to the domestic enterprises caused great pressure, the neck hanging over the head.Since 2020, the shortage of core has seriously affected many industries such as PC, mobile phone and automobile. Many large electronic manufacturers have been forced to reduce production or even stop production, which also makes domestic enterprises realize that key products such as chips must be in their own hands.Therefore, domestic enterprises are also crazy core, money, talent are constantly pouring into the chip industry, the new chip enterprises also set a record, by the end of 2021, the domestic chip enterprises have more than 100,000, more than half of which were established in the last two years.In this situation, the domestic chip production capacity is also crazy growth, so set a daily average of 1 billion new production capacity in 2021.Of course, although production capacity is growing at a high speed, we should also be aware of another problem, that is, domestic demand is also growing at a high speed, the growth of production capacity is still unable to meet domestic demand.According to customs data, in 2021, the number of imported chips reached 635.5 billion, up 16.9% year on year, while the amount of imported integrated circuits was about 440 billion US dollars (2.8 trillion), up about 25.6% year on year.In addition, it should also be noted that we produce more mid – and low-end chips, and a large number of high-end chips are imported. Therefore, although we have achieved a new record of capacity in 2021, we are still on the road. We cannot be proud of ourselves.Only by 2025, when the self-sufficiency rate of chips reaches 70 percent, will we be able to breathe a sigh of relief.
