IEF2013: sharpen your insight on our industry’s mega-shifts

At the same time old markets are changing with the move from PC-centric computing environments to one driven by portable devices with ubiquitous connectivity where big data and the Cloud are radically changing the way information is handled. New markets in 3D Printing (Manufacturing), Data Servers, Robotics, Energy, Medical & Automotive, are also emerging offering massive downstream potential.

Mega-shifts are not a new phenomenon for the chip industry; the landscape changes dramatically when looked at in ten-year increments allowing new companies and regions to displace incumbents and take world leadership positions, but never before have so many changes taken place everywhere at the same time. To make matters worse, these changes are taking place in the midst of the worst global economic recession in the chip industry’s history.

Ready or not, as the chip industry brazenly enters the 20nm era, the big question for everyone is ‘What will the outcome be’? Is it simply ‘Business As Usual’, muddling through one challenge at a time or will 20nm and beyond dictate a ‘New Industry Business Model’, e.g. one driven by vertical plus horizontal ‘integration’?

On 2-4 October 2013, Future Horizons will hold its 22nd Annual International Electronics Forum at the Crowns Plaza Dublin Blanchardstown. Strategically timed to coincide with the business lull following the ‘Q3 close’, the Forum attracts C-Level industry executives from all over the world for a 2-day period of industry keynotes and interactive debate. The event pans the full industry food chain, from the advanced scientific research labs to the end markets and service providers, ensuring all aspects of the industry are addressed.

Visit Future Horizons for further details and keynote speaker announcements. Registration is open now.
