In 2020, IC sales revenue will be close to 900 billion. How can the government support the chip industry at the national level?
“Closely to self-reliance and self-reliance of science and technology, and to enhance the innovation ability of the industrial chain. Mainly focus on some new areas, such as integrated circuits, key software, key new materials, major equipment, and the key areas of the industrial Internet that everyone cares about. Solve the problem of “stuck neck”.” On March 1, Minister of Industry and Information Technology Xiao Yaqing made this statement at a press conference held by the Information Office of the State Council.
Chip integrated circuits are the cornerstone of the information society and an important foundation of information technology. It should be said that the high-quality development of the chip industry is related to the development of the modern information industry and industrial chain. The development of China’s integrated circuit industry during the 13th Five-Year Plan is generally very impressive, and the scale of the industry continues to grow.
According to China’s semiconductor industry estimates, my country’s integrated circuit sales revenue will reach 884.8 billion yuan in 2020, with an average growth rate of 20%, which is three times the global industry growth rate during the same period. Breakthroughs have also been made in technological innovation, and the current manufacturing process, packaging technology, and key equipment materials have been significantly improved. The strength of the company has steadily improved, and a number of new leading companies have emerged in the design, manufacturing, packaging and testing industry chains.
Tian Yulong, a member of the party group, chief engineer, and spokesperson of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, said that on the whole, the Chinese government attaches great importance to the chip industry and the integrated circuit industry, and has issued policies to promote the high-quality development of the integrated circuit industry and the software industry. Comprehensively optimize and improve relevant environmental policies for the development of high-quality chips and integrated circuit industries.
There are several measures:
One is to increase tax cuts for enterprises. These policies have given a great impetus to the development of integrated circuit companies for the reduction or exemption of corporate income tax since the profit-making year.
The second is to further strengthen and upgrade the foundation. Chips involve many basic issues, including materials, processes, and equipment, and involve a relatively long industrial chain. Only by laying a solid foundation can the chip industry continue to innovate and develop.
In addition, the integrated circuit industry itself also needs a good ecological environment. Building a platform can form a complementary and mutually supporting process in the industrial chain. Therefore, building a platform and optimizing the ecology are very critical.
The development of the chip industry depends entirely on application guidance. Therefore, the rapid development of the online economy and digital economy in the automotive, industrial, medical, and education sectors, especially since the epidemic, has provided a very broad market for the development of the chip industry. The development of the chip industry also relies on talents, so the government and the country have adopted a series of measures in terms of talent reserve and talent training. The chip industry is a global industrial chain, and cooperation needs to be increased.
Generally speaking, the development of the chip industry is facing opportunities and challenges. It is necessary to strengthen cooperation on a global scale to jointly build the chip industry chain and make it more healthy and sustainable. It will not only provide support for the development of China’s information society, but also provide support for the global Provide strong support for the development of informatization.
“The Chinese government will give vigorous support at the national level to jointly create a market-oriented, legalized and internationalized business environment and an ecological environment for industrial development.” Tian Yulong emphasized.
