Using capital expenditures to increase domestic production capacity isn’t the only solution to semiconductor shortages. Instead, chip makers in the US and elsewhere can achieve expansion through productivity improvements.
By adding spectrum capacity, fostering innovation, and upgrading its workforce, the US can strengthen its lead in mobile communications—and increase its economic growth by more than $1.4 trillion by 2030.
Uncertainty looks to be the new norm for the semiconductor industry. We outline strategies to help chip customers smooth out this volatility and gain a competitive edge.

To unlock the full potential of next-generation mobile networks to drive the country’s growth, policymakers should focus on five key success factors.
Even if the US and China reach a deal in their current tariff dispute, the bilateral technology trade relationship is unlikely to return to the old status quo.
