The South Korean companies have shown a weak presence and the Taiwanese and Chinese companies also had a low contribution. The US companies have shown a balanced growth in respective IDM, fabless, and total IC industry market share.

In 2021, the Japanese companies have seen a descent that first began in 1990. Japanese companies used to share almost half of the worldwide IC market share back in 1990. The European companies' market share decline is not steep as the Japanese companies.

As of 2021, we can assume that dominant players in the global semiconductor market will be Asia-Pacific and North America, as they have seen a growth of 4 percent in 1990 to 34 percent in 2021.
