In recent years, as demand for applications such as the Internet of things, automotive electronics and smart home continues to explode, the price of raw materials continues to rise. In addition, the global MCU giant is short of production capacity, resulting in prolonged delivery of MCU products and rising prices.Under the background of shortage and price increase, domestic MCU manufacturers embrace the opportunity of breaking through adversity.
It is not clear whether domestic MCU manufacturers can seize the opportunity. However, the upsurge of shortage price increase of MCU indeed brings industrial opportunities and growth opportunities to domestic MCU manufacturers.At present, among the MUC manufacturers in the a-share market, MCU shipments in zhayi innovation exceeded 200 million in five years, and the net profit in 2017 rose by 125.26 yuan year-on-year to 397 million yuan.Zhongying electronics made a net profit of 134 million yuan in 2017, up 24.16 percent year on year
In addition to the a-share listed MCU company, while seizing the industrial opportunity, the new third board listed MCU manufacturers are also seeking breakthrough opportunities.However, by combing the MCU manufacturers listed on the new third board, the author finds that the performance of these MCU manufacturers is not very good.
Continue to focus on MCU - mountain view shares, smart micro
Since the establishment of the company, mountain view and smart micro have been focusing on the MCU field. Currently, it has launched 32 MCU chips, and successfully gained a position in the MCU market in China.In 2017, they significantly increased their research and development spending in order to achieve better development in the "shortage".
I. mountain view shares
