As a lithography machine giant, ASML in the Netherlands is at the top of the pyramid of the entire chip semiconductor industry, and its financial report status can intuitively reflect the temperature of the entire industry. However, in fact, it can be judged without looking at ASML’s strong financial report that the economic recession predicted in the new year may not have too much impact on the chip semiconductor industry. Although the consumer electronics industry market is shrinking rapidly, in addition to consumer electronics, many new industries, such as new energy vehicles and smart cars, require more and more chips. As long as technology is still developing and everyone relies more and more on technology, the demand for the chip industry will not shrink significantly in the future.
