Latest Industry Insights from Draup Braindesk
Canadian Roadmap includes four main goals for Semiconductor Development by 2050
Strengthening and diversifying the supply chain
This chip shortage impacts production and supply. The country will work to secure an imported supply of semiconductors and establish a case for increasing domestic production.
Develop onshore manufacturing
This increases domestic production of semiconductors by understanding which chips are in high demand, establishing a business model for fabrication, attracting multinational semiconductor manufacturing partners, and improving engineering talent.
Establishing Canada as a brand
Focusing on design and R&D as well as specializing in electric vehicles, batteries, and sensors areas that are poised for significant growth.
Foster market development
This would help float the bill for the initial and ongoing capital needed for semiconductor manufacturing.
The path to a modern Canadian economy will be paved with Canadian technology
Shoring Up Supply
Companies and industries have to come together and establish a cross-industry, government-led consortium to increase Canada’s purchasing power and negotiating position through high-volume purchases. Chips are increasingly being viewed around the world as fundamental to national security, and Canada has to secure its supply while at the same time building a case for increasing domestic production.
Bringing Production Home
Canada must leverage its reputation as an environmentally and politically stable market and rely on existing partnerships to attract new multinational semiconductor manufacturing agreements. Canadian engineering talent must improve upon established fabrication processes and pioneer more agile and efficient approaches to chip production. To emerge as a leader in the ultra-lucrative, IP-rich semiconductor sector, Canadian-made semiconductor products have to develop an uncompromising reputation as best-in-class.
