While China technically hosts 400-500 IC design firms - more than Silicon Valley or Hsinchu Science Park, the world's two largest IC design centers - a closer inspection of the list of players shows that around half of these firms are in fact China subsidiaries of international companies, while many others are purely technological research organizations. The real number of homegrown IC design firms in China is therefore no greater than 100 at most.
Abstract
Global TV chip industry market share

While China technically hosts 400-500 IC design firms - more than Silicon Valley or Hsinchu Science Park, the world's two largest IC design centers - a closer inspection of the list of players shows that around half of these firms are in fact China subsidiaries of international companies, while many others are purely technological research organizations. The real number of homegrown IC design firms in China is therefore no greater than 100 at most.
