Winning through M&A? Deal making in the semiconductor sector

After a number of years of limited deal making, the semiconductor industry has been experiencing an uptick in mergers and acquisitions. The reasons behind the shift are clear: revenues are slowing, forcing players to seek other sources of growth, and customers increasingly prefer purchasing integrated solutions from one company. In response, semiconductor companies are acquiring or merging with enterprises that will take them into new areas of the value chain. Each deal prompts other companies to consider M&A to gain scale and remain competitive.
