High prices and consecutive federal rate hikes, and a slowing economy have marred the optimal performance of the semiconductor and chip industry. The U.S. PC market declined 17.3% in the third quarter of 2022, marking the fifth consecutive quarter of year-over-year shipment decline. The semiconductor industry is struggling with slowing demand.
