American Technology Leadership is Critical to Semiconductor Supply Chain Resiliency

Key Points

  • Renewed U.S. leadership in semiconductor logic process and manufacturing is vital

  • The U.S. must reduce its dependence on semiconductors from Asia

  • U.S.-based manufacturers face a 25% to 40% cost disadvantage compared to their subsidized competitors in Asia

  • Urgent action is required of the federal government



Semiconductors power the internet, are the building blocks of the digital economy, are vital to national security, and provide the foundation for critical technologies such as artificial intelligence, 5G, and autonomous vehicles.

America stands at a critical inflection point: The U.S. must regain its leadership on both semiconductor logic process and advanced manufacturing.
