Taiwan’s electronics industry is dominated by a relatively small number of large groups. In addition to the capital- intensive semiconductor and display companies the country also has a significant number of ODMs/EMS which hold a major share in the global production of computer and communications products. Taiwanese companies are also important in the production of electronic components. Electronics output, after increasing by 2.5% in 2019, surged in 2020 despite the pandemic with overall, electronics production increasing by an estimated 12.4%. On the equipment side, strong growth in the production of computers and related equipment and LCD TVs and more a modest increase in industrial was offset by a modest decline in communications. The components segment, which accounted for 81% of overall of electronics production in 2020, increased by 13.4%, driven by a 15.9% increase in the production of ICs and a 5.8% increase in passive components. The once dominant computer sector, which had previously accounted for over 50% of electronics production in 2000, had declined sharply as the leading Taiwanese manufacturers moved production to China. However, since 2016 the production of computer and related equipment has posted year on year growth. In 2020, output surged as the leading Taiwanese ODMs reshored production increasing the segments share of total electronics output to 8.4% up from 4.7% in 2015. In 2020, lockdown measures and the move to work from home has boosted demand globally and should led to estimated growth of 17.0%. With the demand for PCs remaing strong in the first half of 2021, in particular for notebooks, output is forecast to increase by a further 20.0% for the year as a whole.
