Semiconductors are at the core of any digital device and the Union’s digital transition: from smartphones and cars, through critical applications and infrastructures in health, energy, communications and automation to most other industry sectors. As semiconductors are central to the digital economy, they are powerful enablers for the sustainability and green transition, contributing thus to the objectives of the Commission communication of 11 December 2019 on ‘The European Green Deal’.
While semiconductors are essential to the functioning of today's economy and society as well as defence and security, the Union has witnessed unprecedented disruptions in their supply, the consequences of which are significant. The current disruptions have exposed long-lasting vulnerabilities in this respect, in particular a strong third-country dependency in manufacturing and design of chips. Member States are primarily responsible for maintaining a strong industrial, competitive, sustainable base in the Union promoting innovation across a full range of chips.
