A semiconductor is a material placed between a conductor and an insulator on which integrated circuits — composed of transistors — are installed, enabling an electronic device's operation and memory capacity. The related economic sector is worth $440 billion in annual turnover and is growing steadily (+7.7% expected in 2021).
US infrastructure agencies have kept the country’s trains running, water flowing, and government buildings functioning during the coronavirus crisis. Now that operations are stabilizing, they can reconsider their capital-expenditure plans.
