Japan-Korea trade friction impacts semiconductor industry supply chain(electronics manufacturing expo news)

25 Jul 2019

In early July, Japan announced an increase in export controls for South Korea, focusing on three types of chemicals: "fluorinated polyimides" necessary for the manufacture of smart phones and computer displays, "photoresists" necessary for the electronics manufacturing expo manufacture of semiconductors, and "High-purity hydrogen fluoride" for semiconductor cleaning and the like.

With the escalation of disputes between Japan and South Korea, supply of Korean memory chips may be tight at any time, and the global semiconductor manufacturing supply chain may be interrupted. The six major industry associations in the United States have come to jointly urge Japan to release semiconductor materials exports. According to South Korea’s “Central Daily News” reported on July 25, local time July 24, the US electronics manufacturing expo Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA), Information Technology Industry Association (ITI), National Manufacturing Association (NAM), Semiconductor Equipment Materials Industry Association (SEMI) ), the Computer Technology Industry Association (CompTIA), the Consumer Technology Association (CTA), six organizations to the Korean Ministry of electronics manufacturing expo Industry, Trade and Resources, the Minister of Commerce, Yu Mingxi, and the Japanese economic industry, Shigehiro Hiroshi, sent a joint letter urging the resolution of Japan's restricted semiconductors as soon as possible. The problem of material exports.

The SIA members signed on the letter include companies such as Qualcomm and Intel. The members of the six organizations cover major information and communication technology (ICT) companies in the United States such as Apple, Google and Amazon.

They wrote in the joint letter, "This situation may lead to the interruption of supply of semiconductor electronics manufacturing expo materials and the delay in export time, affecting the world economy." "In order to reduce these effects, relevant issues must be resolved as soon as possible." The letter emphasizes that the global supply chain of semiconductor components is closely linked, saying that “the world's ICT industry and manufacturing industry must rely on the supply chain to acquire core components and technologies”, “Korea and Japan are in the global value chain of this industry. Play an important role."
