Ardian has launched Ardian Semiconductor, an innovative platform investing across the semiconductor value chain with a focus on Europe.
Semiconductor devices are the critical enablers of the digital transformation and the green transition of key sectors, including data infrastructure, mobility, industrial and consumer. Industry analysts believe the semiconductor industry will reach $1 trillion by 2030 following several decades of consistent mid- to high-single-digit growth, driven by predictable megatrends such as artificial intelligence, cloud computing, electrification and automation.
Ardian believes Europe is one of the most attractive regions to invest in the coming decade. European companies in the value chain are global leaders in semiconductors for the mobility and industrial end-markets that are experiencing rapid technological transformation and expected to grow the fastest.
Europe leverages attractive government incentives, including the €43 billion
