🟦 onsemi invests USD 2 billion in Czech Republic

U.S. semiconductor giant onsemi has announced that it will invest $2 billion (Â¥320 billion) over the next few years to build a new silicon carbide (SiC) power semiconductor manufacturing plant in the Czech Republic. As demand for power-efficient SiC power semiconductors increases due to the spread of EVs and AI, we aim to build a supply chain in Europe and expand our business.

The Czech government welcomes this investment and will continue to focus on attracting foreign investment. This investment is expected to contribute to job creation and economic development in the Czech Republic.

🟦Strengthening competitiveness by expanding the EV and renewable energy markets

SiC power semiconductors are widely used in fields such as EVs and renewable energy due to their excellent power efficiency. onsemi already has production facilities for silicon crystal growth, silicon and SiC wafer fabrication (polishing and epitaxial growth) in the Czech Republic, and this investment is a brownfield investmentIt comes to. The investment will include the expansion of production facilities, including SiC wafer fabs. This will enable onsemi to establish an end-to-end SiC production system from wafers for advanced power semiconductors, strengthening its competitiveness in markets such as EVs and renewable energy.

🟦Summary

onsemi will build a new SiC power semiconductor plant in the Czech Republic to capture the growth of the SiC power semiconductor market and strengthen its presence in Europe. This investment is also expected to contribute to job creation and economic development in the region.

The Czech Republic in Eastern Europe is also accelerating its investment in the semiconductor industry, which has been gaining prominence in recent years. The EU is aiming to reduce its dependence on China for semiconductors and strengthen its semiconductor production capacity in the region, and the Czech Republic is also aiming to play a part in this.
