After increasing by 4.5% in 2017 the production of electronics equipment and components remained stable in 2018 and 2019, low single-digit declines in equipment output offset by growth in the semiconductor sector. In 2020, the pandemic resulted in output falling by an estimated 5.8% but is forecast to rebound in 2021 and increase by 4.4%. Control and instrumentation and communications and radar accounted for 26.9% and 18.7% of output respectively in 2020 while components accounted for 31.0%. Output for the control and instrumentation sector declined by 4.0% in 2019, in part due to weaker domestic demand but also a slowdown in key export markets over the course of the year. Although initial forecasts following the outbreak of the pandemic anticipated a double-digit decline in output, production on the back of stronger demand in key export markets fell by an estimated 4.3% in 2020. Output is expected to rebound by 4.2% in 2021. The medical sector accounted for an estimated 7.5% of electronic production in 2020. After increasing by 2.6% in 2018, production grew by 10.7% in 2019 on the back of stronger demand in the domestic and key export markets. In 2020, rising output for products used in the treatment of the pandemic was offset by lower production of other medical equipment leading to a 1.5% decline for the year as a whole. Output is forecast to increase by 3.6% in 2021 and then accelerate further in 2022/2023. After five years of consecutive growth the production of ICs declined by an estimated 10.4% in 2019, but is forecast to show a strong rebound of 10.0% in 2021, in part, as production is increased to offset the global shortage of semiconductors and by a further 9.5% in 2022 with the ramp-up of ST’s new 300mm line.
