33% of Japan’s semiconductor sales are in China… “A blow to participation in US export controls”
If Japan joins the US export control of semiconductor equipment to China, it is expected that the Japanese industry will suffer a significant blow.
Local media such as Kyodo News said, “Seven of the top 15 semiconductor equipment companies in the world are in Japan, and sales in China account for 33% of the total.”
Tokyo Electron, one of the world’s top 5 semiconductor equipment manufacturers, relied on China for 26% of its annual sales, and among semiconductor circuit-related equipment, China’s share of sales reached 90% in some cases.
Previously, Bloomberg News reported that Japan and the Netherlands agreed to join the United States in controlling semiconductor exports to China, which is pursued for national security.
