MarketsandMarkets analyzed the significant number of M&A deals in the semiconductor industry during 2014–2015 with the total value of deals to cross USD 120 Billion in 2015 itself. Semiconductor companies have found it necessary to increase their scale of operations to ensure they can provide their customers with the required products and services. The scale refers to both production capacity as well as human resources in the required areas. As the semiconductor manufacturing technology has advanced, the cost of manufacturing equipment has also increased significantly. Thus, the fixed costs associated with developing a chip have increased. These factors have led to an increase in the number of semiconductor M&A deals.

The report categorizes the M&A deals in semiconductor industry during 2014–2015 by deal value, acquirer type, end user, and region. In the current industry scenario, major players are looking to effectively use the big deal strategy to grow their market share in a competitive semiconductor industry environment. Growing organically by improving existing business portfolio and making only small selective acquisitions is a growth strategy that was preferred by players in the semiconductor industry. However, the current market scenario makes this strategy less beneficial for medium-and large-sized semiconductor companies operating in the maturing industry segments. Some of the big ticket deals announced during 2014–2015 were: acquisition of Broadcom Corporation (U.S.) by Avago Technologies Ltd (U.S.), acquisition CSR plc (U.K.) by Qualcomm Inc. (U.S.), acquisition of Altera Corporation (U.S.) by Intel Corporation (U.S.), acquisition of Freescale Semiconductor Ltd (U.S.) by NXP Semiconductors NV (Netherlands), acquisition of Atmel Corporation (U.S.) by Dialog Semiconductor PLC (U.K.), and acquisition of SanDisk Corporation (U.S.) by Western Digital Corporation (U.S.), among others.

A key requirement for a successful M&A deal in semiconductor industry is identifying the acquisition target. The process of identifying acquisition targets should take place with a complete strategic review of the acquirer to identify key value drivers of the business and establishing a set of strategic goals. Semiconductor companies that serve maturing end user segments should target companies that can help them sustain the industry pricing pressures, improve profitability, and increase their market share.

North American companies, more specifically U.S. companies were highly active in the semiconductor M&A landscape. A majority of the acquirers and the acquirees were based in North America. In the APAC region, China bolstered its semiconductor acquisition with aggressive M&A activity.

One of major difficulties in merger and acquisition deals in semiconductor industry is the post transaction process. It takes significant time and human resources to combine the resources of two companies to function as a single unit. This problem intensifies when the M&A involves two tier I companies. Issues such as tying the employee policies of the two companies to combining together the financial reporting systems of the two companies which may have different filling dates and use different systems can consume a lot of effort from the company management and hence hampers the overall company productivity.

The companies such as Intel Corporation (U.S.), Broadcom Corporation (U.S.), Qualcomm Incorporated (U.S.), Mediatek, Inc. (Taiwan), Avago Technologies Ltd (U.S.), SK Hynix, Inc. (South Korea), Micron Technology, Inc. (U.S.), Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd (South Korea), Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co., Ltd (Taiwan), and GLOBALFOUNDRIES Inc. (U.S.) have adopted various strategies such as partnerships, agreements, contracts, mergers and acquisitions, and new product developments to achieve business growth.
