A Strategy That Builds On UK Advantage

The recommendations set out in the report are intended as the starting point for a wider debate on the future of the UK’s semiconductor strategy. They reject an approach based on massive investment in local manufacturing capacity, or ‘onshoring’, as is being pursued in other parts of the world. Instead, the view taken is that the UK should double down on its comparative advantage in semiconductor design, while simultaneously seeking to strengthen the security of supply through new strategic international alliances in semiconductors.
