Sector Analytics: Semiconductor stocks trends.

๐Ÿ’ก Bank of America confirms its optimistic outlook for the semiconductor sector: however over the past few years, the sector has grown only ~ 2%, the Bank now expect for the 2021 a growth of approx. 8%.


The limited growth of recent years was associated with the difficult landscape provided by US-China trade wars and the end of the 4G smartphone sales cycle.


The projected growth will lead industry to be worth more than $ 500 billion despite the following factors:

โ€ข The growth of cloud technologies, the use of artificial intelligence, smart technologies for industries, homes and the Internet of things.

โ€ข Trends in telecommunication will remain strong beyond vaccination.

โ€ข Recovery of the automotive industry

โ€ข Increased use of 5G-enabled smartphones and wireless infrastructure.

โ€ข Stabilization of prices for memory devices.


๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿป Semiconductor major player will, in BoA view, see exponential growth despite any market cycle:

โœ… Nvidia Corp. #NVDA

โœ… Marvell Technology Group. #MRVL


๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿป There is a prediction of 20% revenue growth with 30% earnings per share (EPS) growth through 2022.


๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿป In addition the sales of semiconductor manufacturing equipment is expected to grow in 2020 and 2021 by 17% and 8%, respectively. This is due to more moderate restrictive measures from China and continued high demand.
