Chip demand to continue strong this year led by 5G handsets

Over the next few years we should see continued growth in smartphone performance and improvements in energy-efficiency (read battery life). That’s because we are getting closer and closer to what could be the final years of Moore’s Law. Commented on during the mid 1960s by Intel co-founder Gordon Moore, and revised a decade later, this observation about transistor density is seemingly entering its final years. The “Law” calls for the number of transistors squeezed into a square mm to double every other year.  
Another strong year expected in the semiconductor industry
