Japan's world-leading chip materials makers risk being acquired

Japan's top chip materials manufacturers face potential acquisitions, risking a shift in the global semiconductor supply chain. This vulnerability stems from their modest market capitalization, making them attractive targets for foreign companies seeking to bolster their presence in the semiconductor industry. As global demand for chips continues to surge, these acquisitions could disrupt Japan's technological leadership, potentially leading to a loss of control over crucial materials in semiconductor production. This situation underscores the need for Japan to secure its strategic industries and ensure the stability of its semiconductor supply chain amidst intensifying global competition.
