A review of the UK's semiconductor clusters
In another report with Barclays Eagle Labs, we explore the UK’s high-growth semiconductor industry, reviewing investment trends, founder insights and areas of innovation.
This report examines the 79 active, high-growth companies operating within the semiconductor industry in the UK, in addition to 29 historically active firms. It delves into the geographical clusters that define the landscape of this industry, with notable regions including South Wales, Cambridge, and the Central Belt in Scotland.
In 2022 alone, these companies secured an unprecedented £160m in equity funding. Together with the backing of universities and government initiatives, funding plays a pivotal role in the continued development of the sector.
