Although China’s semiconductor purchasing boom is cooling down, the nation’s demand for locally designed chips is heating up, with domestic consumption expected to rise by more than 60 percent from 2007 to 2012, according to iSuppli Corp. By 2012, $42.1 billion worth of Chinese-designed semiconductors will be purchased for use in electronic equipment made in the nation, up 63.4 percent from $25.8 billion in 2007.

The attached figure presents iSuppli’s forecast of purchases of locally designed semiconductors in China. These figures do not account for localized design work by foreign companies operating in China, including those based in Taiwan.
