Accenture embeds innovation in the semiconductor industry and adjacent ecosystems with strategic insights and actionable plans driving results.
Innovating across the ecosystem
See how Accenture is changing the semiconductor business to defeat challenges and meet the promise of a changing industry. The semiconductor ecosystem of Integrated Design Manufacturers, IP designers, fabless, foundries and equipment manufacturers are working together in new and different ways more than ever before.
This new way of working requires expertise from people who know how to harness the opportunities and find the right solutions that solve the semiconductor ecosystem intricacies. Accenture works with your company to manage these changes successfully to overcome disruptors, master the marketplace and avoid being commoditized.

Soitec reshapes future for growth
How do you radically reposition after an industry collapse? Soitec has tripled revenue and profitability with Accenture’s Business Futures approach.
With the collapse of the solar energy industry, declining revenues and an unclear vision for product definition, Soitec had to reposition.
The company shifted its focus to the growing semiconductor market of engineered substrates and wanted to define a five-year blueprint to create a bigger and stronger Soitec. However, leadership was unsure about Soitec’s future goals and what was needed to accomplish them.
The first step was getting everyone on the same page. The CEO wanted an external perspective, both to align the management team on a future vision for the company, and to help identify Soitec’s most promising future growth opportunities.
Accenture can help semiconductor companies reinvent themselves to build supply chain resiliency, engage across the ecosystem, drive mergers and acquisitions, and help design the next generation of chips.
A modern supply chain is built to be scalable and resilient to disruptions. An effective semiconductor supply chain has diversified their suppliers across each channel may also conduct tests or centralized monitoring and has vertical insight to identify potential trouble areas.
The semiconductor ecosystem provides engagement across the development of a semiconductor. This ecosystem includes integrated device manufacturing (IDM), fabless companies, foundries and equipment manufacturers.
The current chip shortage was brought on by a series of environmental, geo-political and pandemic related events that forced many manufacturers to slow production and revise forecasting. This resulted in a scramble of available chips when manufacturers increased production.
