The ongoing pandemic has brought the power of technology into sharp focus, as the physical constraints of the health crisis accelerate the use of big data and digitalisation in daily life. Today, the global tech innovation ecosystem created over the past decade is at its most dynamic, especially in Asia. Strong investment is a major reason. Where are traditional and new investors putting their money? Which countries in Asia are seeing the fastest technology growth? Even before the pandemic caused a surge in digitalisation, a semiconductor shortage had begun to hurt industry. How has the world responded? Established chips makers in Taiwan, South Korea and the US aim to ramp up production, but newcomers China and India are likely to contribute significantly as well. Can Asia’s manufacturers avert a semiconductor crisis, and bolster global industry?
