General Administration of Customs: my country's integrated circuit imports in the first half of 2022 exceeded 1.35 trillion yuan

Jul 26,2022

Recently, the General Administration of Customs released the latest statistics. In the first half of 2022 (January to June, the same below), my country imported a total of 279.7 billion integrated circuits, a year-on-year decrease of 10.4%; the total import value was 1.3511 trillion yuan, a year-on-year increase. 5.5%. In addition, in the first half of 2022, my country's integrated circuit exports totaled 141 billion pieces, a year-on-year decrease of 6.8%; the total export value was 499.3 billion yuan, a year-on-year increase of 16.4%.

According to data released by the General Administration of Customs, in the first half of this year, the total value of my country's import and export of goods trade was 19.8 trillion yuan, a year-on-year increase of 9.4%. Among them, the total value of exports was 11.14 trillion yuan, an increase of 13.2%; the total value of imports was 8.66 trillion yuan, an increase of 4.8%. This means that in the total import value of my country in the first half of the year, integrated circuits accounted for about 15.6%. In addition, according to the statistics of the General Administration of Customs, in the first half of this year, the domestic crude oil import value was 1.1633 trillion yuan. Obviously, the import value of integrated circuits has exceeded this amount, becoming the largest imported commodity in my country.

According to the data on the operation of industries above designated size in June 2022 released by the National Bureau of Statistics a few days ago, in the first six months of this year, my country's integrated circuit output totaled 166.1 billion pieces, down 6.3% year-on-year. This is also the first time since 2009 that my country has experienced a negative growth in the output of integrated circuits.

Although domestic IC production declined slightly, exports increased by 16.4%. At the same time, according to the number and total amount of imported integrated circuits, it can be calculated that the average unit price of imported integrated circuits in my country is 4.83 yuan per unit, while the average unit price of exported integrated circuits is 3.54 yuan per unit. Whether it is comparing the quantity and amount of my country's imported integrated circuits in the first half of this year, or the quantity and amount of exported integrated circuits, the characteristics of "quantity decrease and price increase" will be found.

With the continuous development of the whole society towards digitalization and intelligence, the demand for semiconductors is continuously released. It is against this background that integrated circuits have been hailed as the "food" of modern industry, the core of the information technology industry, and a strategic, fundamental and leading industry that supports economic and social development and safeguards national security. National strategic leading industry. As my country's integrated circuit industry continues to make breakthroughs in technological innovation and marketization, the industrial chain capacity will continue to be strengthened, and the market competitiveness will also be significantly improved.
