MOSCOW ─ 8 February 2016 ─ Reforms to revitalize the Russian electronics industry continue to create opportunities in the region. SEMICON Russia 2016 on 7-9 June will provide insights into market developments, technology, and business opportunities, short and long-term. SEMICON Russia 2016 is the leading forum for microelectronics manufacturing in Russia, connecting the full complete electronics supply chain ─ from material and equipment to manufacturing, services, components and applications.
Investment opportunities in Russia are largely driven by government strategy to develop domestic industries and public funding programs and present significant potential for companies. State support for the electronics industry is expected to grow, following the industrial policy law adopted at the end of 2014 that forecasts state investment, incentives and tax advantages for developing and manufacturing competitive products in Russia. State investment programs for the period 2014-2020 project a total of 130 new plants and renovated manufacturing sites, with an estimated total investment of $13 billion in R&D and infrastructure, including equipment renovation.
As a kick-off event for SEMICON Russia 2016, SEMI will host the first Hi-Tech Strategy Symposium Russia on the 7 June in Moscow. Based on SEMI’s successful business symposiums, such as Industry Strategy Symposium (ISS) U.S. and ISS Europe, this will be the inaugural year for this program in Russia. The TechARENA program this year will focus on a wide range of applications including: MEMS for the Internet of Everything, Medical Technology, Smart City, Industry 4.0, Aerospace Electronics, Power Electronics, and Plastic Electronics. In addition, there will be a focus on innovation with a StartUp Zone which features regional innovation clusters.
