If Apple is counted as a US company despite not making anything in the US (ditto for Qualcomm), it is no surprise that the "US chip market" is growing.

@HS_SemiPro To your last point. That could well be the case. There are rumors that Apple will pressure Hon Hai to build a manufacturing plant in the United States. But that would just be one example. There is a lot of awareness in Europe of how Germany's manufacturing- and export-led economy is really the most viable here. There is also much discussion of re-industrialization. But how to achieve it against global competition is not easy.

this is an interesting article, I think Global Semiconductor Executives are figuring out that investing and Playing China is not easy and not worth it any more. Asian business dominated by low cost competition with local govt. Subsidy and Invention, 1) China specially has too much Govt. intervention. Govt is protecting and promoting local companies and market is not free, no not good business Ideas, besides very hard to protect IP & Tech Know how, too many copy cats 2) Korean companies have Govt. protection as well. 3) Taiwan has nationalistic approach to its Industry, hard for outsiders to win here, It is much easier for Korean and Taiwanese companies to win here, Also Asian companies are realizing importance of R&D Talent in USA, lot of companies investing in R&D in USA. I think more MFG investment will also be seen from Asia in USA.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
