Semiconductor growth through as-a-service models

February 22, 2022

RESEARCH REPORT

In brief

The top 6 reasons for AaS implementation

1. Operational efficiency

Service consumers achieve a shift from high CapEx to more predictable OpEx + predictable recurring and renewable revenue streams.

2. Flexibility & agility

Scale capacity, operations and adjust cost based on demand by purchasing solutions that fit a need instead of developing in-house capabilities.

3. Breaking down barriers to innovation

AaS offers the availability of analytics and manufacturing tools by removing expensive capital equipment investment.

4. Greater share of wallet

AaS companies benefit from capturing greater share of wallet by providing maintenance, spare parts, peripherals, data analytics services and upgrades.

5. Recurring revenue stream

AaS enables manufacturers to provide components every month or every year, removing the lack of predictability to help derisk a company’s top line.

6. Enhance cross sell/upsell of services

AaS model offers valuable data that can be used to meaningfully service clients in the future.

Semiconductor companies can learn from and adopt well-known practices and models of other AaS providers and achieve outcomes.
