Powering the Fourth Industrial Revolution with semiconductor stocks

Have you heard of the fourth industrial revolution? If not, rest assured that it’s already changing your life. Zoom calls; smart heating and lighting; self-driving cars; rapid advances in medical science, including vaccines. All these require semiconductors and are just a few children of the revolution, which is gathering speed.

Be involved in this economic revolution by investing in our Semiconductor ETF, the VanEck Vectors Semiconductor UCITS ETF.

The Core of Modern Tech

The 21st Century tech revolution would not be possible without an invention of the 20th Century: semiconductors, also called microchips. They make billions of flawless calculations per second and store nearly infinite data – all on a space smaller than your fingernail. Just a few large companies make semiconductors; they are well positioned to reap substantial profits.

It’s no exaggeration that the rise of tech is becoming exponential. Research from Huawei / Oxford Economics sees its share of the global economy (measured by gross domestic product) rising from 15% in 2006 to 24% in 2025. We already find this around us, for instance:

  • Artificial intelligence in all sectors (eg medical research and diagnostics, self-driving cars, robotics)
  • 5G mobile communication (from wireless broadband to wireless TV)
  • 3D printing
  • The Internet of Things
  • Cryptocurrencies (notably Bitcoin)
  • 3D video gaming.
