Business World

CIRTEK ELECTRONICS Corp. plans to increase local production by 20% as it partners with major customers to provide parts for consumer electronics and electric charger products.

In a statement on Monday, Cirtek said that it will be providing services to develop a semiconductor package widely used for smart phones, personal computers, laptops, wireless communications, and other consumer electronics.

“These devices are predicted as major factors that will boost the global semiconductor industry growth for 2021,” Cirtek said.

The firm will also be working with an American company on high power transistors that will “increase efficiency and reliability” of energy power systems and chargers for electric vehicles, power adapters, and inverters.

Cirtek plans to scale up its production starting in the first quarter of 2021.

Electronics exports industry group Semiconductor and Electronics Industries in the Philippines, Inc. (SEIPI) in November announced that it revised its 2020 projection to a five percent decline, from the earlier forecast of 15% decline after industrial, consumer, mobility, and medical electronics demand increased.

The industry group expects 7% growth for 2021.
