Semiconductors

The semiconductor industry powers modern technology and is essential for future developments in artificial intelligence (AI), advanced wireless networks such as 5G, and quantum computing. Challenges today such as disruptions to global supply chains, rising costs associated with innovative semiconductor manufacturing and design, and geopolitical instability place increased pressure on this essential industry. With these myriad external threats applying pressure to the semiconductor industry, any unforeseen incidents to manufacturing facilities or equipment could be catastrophic.
