Recently, the National Bureau of Statistics officially released the domestic chip production in May 2021. In May, a total of 29.87 billion chips were produced in China, a year-on-year increase of 37.6%, while a total of 139.92 billion chips were produced from January to May. A year-on-year increase of 48.3%.
Obviously, from this data, domestic chip production is accelerating. After all, the global semiconductor sales growth rate in the first quarter was less than 20%. This is still sales due to rising prices under the background of lack of cores.
So as soon as this data came out, netizens were still very excited. They felt that the chip self-sufficiency rate should be improved again, and they can be proud of it first.
So with the growth of domestic chip production, what about the situation of imported chips? The customs also released a data a few days ago. The data shows that from January to May 2021, we imported a total of 260.35 billion chips (integrated circuits), an increase of 30% year-on-year. The value of chips was 1.04 trillion yuan, an increase of 18.2%.
Obviously, from January to May alone, the deficit of the entire chip is more than 120 billion pieces, and the production volume of domestic chips is only about half of that of imported chips.
As for the amount, it is not clear for the time being, but considering that the domestic chip production process is dominated by mature processes, while imported chips are dominated by advanced processes, it is believed that the output value of domestically produced chips must be less than half the price of imported chips. Here The difference in value is at least 500 billion yuan.
In fact, over the past few years, the deficit between domestic imports and exports of chips has been increasing. For example, in 2017, the deficit was 193.2 billion, and in 2018, it exceeded 220 billion, and in 2020, it exceeded 230 billion. .
It can be seen that, really speaking, China’s chips really still have a long way to go. Don’t stare at the 48.3% growth from January to May, producing 140 billion chips, and be proud of exceeding the global average growth value. The reality does not allow us to cheer.
Especially under the current tense external situation, we must work hard to improve the chip self-sufficiency rate and not be caught in the neck. This little achievement is far from enough, what do you think?
